Question by Shawty Lo: Canon Elph PowerShot SD1300 IS, Can you Alter the Pictures once they are Taken? I've taken some pictures on this Camera and when reviewing them I noticed how small the people in them were. They camera has this thing where you can Zoom in on the picture and look at the altered image on the LCD screen. So, my question is can you SAVE the image in its Zoomed in Form and how to do this.

Answer by PGM
That process is called "cropping". I doubt the camera can handle that. However, Picasa and Gimp (both free) will do that on your computer.

    …is one you’ll have with you. The nice thing about the Canon ELPH series is they easily fit into your pocket, are well built/designed, don’t cost a lot, come with a boatload of features, and take great pictures. The SD1300, the latest in the ELPH line continues in that tradition, adding considerable additional sophistication and sacrificing some useful functionality in the interest of cutting cost.

    It is a small camera and carries with it the baggage that comes with the convenience of having to carry so little baggage. (sorry, couldn’t resist) None of the issues raised, given that they comes as part of the convenience trade-off made me consider anything other than the 5-star rating this camera deserves.

    - Many of the functions are only accessible through menus, sometimes several levels deep. The good new is the Automatic and scene modes are pretty good (as long as you spend a few minutes reviewing what they really do). This camera is not intended to be used in aperture or shutter priority, let alone full manual.

    - The battery life might be shorter than you expect. That’s a trade-off for having a camera that’s small and light; you get a battery that is small and light. One thing you can do is get a spare battery. That is good advice for any camera. Another thing that will help is to keep the display off as much as possible. That means using the monitor as little as possible. The “sad” part is that Canon chose to drop the optical viewfinder in this model. That means a camera that is simpler and less expensive to make but will go through batteries quicker because you must use the display when taking picture.

    - The camera response is a bit slow for effectively capturing children and pets. The trick for doing that is to either have a great sense of timing and a shutter that reacts instantly or a reasonably fast ( > 4x / sec ) burst mode. This camera has neither.

    Some other suggestions that apply:

    - Use the lowest ISO available given your requirement for either aperture or shutter speed. To avoid getting technical, higher ISO always introduces higher noise. At issue is when it becomes noticeable. In newer dSLR cameras you can get over 1000, maybe well over depending on the camera, before the noise becomes noticeable. For this camera keeping it at or below 200 is a good idea.

    - Don’t use in-camera sharpening. Digital pictures will almost always benefit from sharpening but you are better off doing it with a photo editing program. Compuer-based algorithms tend to be more sophisticated and you can better judge the results on your monitor as opposed to the camera LCD.

    - If you want more vivid colors and have the choice use sRGB instead of Adobe RGB. While you get fewer colors they are distributed over a wider range. They are also render better on computer monitors, many commercial labs, and any other place your pictures are likely to show up.

    Finally, I’ve found the Caselogic QPB-1 Compact Digital Camera Case (Black/Gray) is just the right size for this camera. It’s semi-rigid so you get a fair amount of protection but doesn’t add a lot of bulk. It’s made even better by using one of these, Nite Ize SB1-2PK-01 Size-1 S-Biner, Black, 2-Pack, to secure it to a belt loop.

    I like this camera because it is small and it is a Canon. Since I have had it for only four days I will only say it takes great pictures on the Auto mode with and without the zoom. I took a few pictures in the dark and they came amazingly clear for this size camera.

    So far I am a very satisfied customer.

    PROS: Quality of pictures, size, flash, comes with a battery charger and Amazon gave me a free 4GB card.

    CONS: No viewfinder but if you want one, you get a camera with it. Battery life is kind of short so I got an extra battery.

    Will come back later to add to this review.

    I love this camera! I’m a REALTOR and use the wide angle to capture views of properties and yards. Wonderful and compact.

    I would recommend to anyone looking for a point and shoot camera with no fussing.

    I took this camera to my over-America road trip. The camera saw pretty hard conditions – 99 degrees of heat, dropping into sand, 3000 pictures over 3 weeks. It just went on-off all the time, I put a weight of a full year of use onto it over 3 weeks.

    Works great. Amazing photos, it is easy to use, automatic regimes like macro work brilliant. Even through car windows on a speed of 70mph, it takes pictures like standing on a place. You could never tell they are made from a car ride. Brilliant photos, great camera.

    1 minus. Beauty flaws come up quickly. It is easy to scratch it and after 3 weeks of use, it looked rubbish. Like a 3 year old camera. I have never seen this before. So if you are interested in aesthetics, buy some other camera. If you want to have awesome, truly brilliant pictures from a small and compact camera, buy this one. Photos wise it is the best you could buy, if you like to hang out and show your fancy equipment in a big crowd, this camera is not looking fancy over longer period of time.

    I bought this camera for my husband. He needed something simple, handy and small enough to fit in his pocket. My friend had a Canon PowerShot 1200 series that she took when we went on a 2 week horse back riding vacation to Ireland. She took the best pictures, always able to quickly set up her timed shots so we 4 ladies could all be in the picture. She could quickly pull her camera out of her jacket pocket to take beautiful scenery as we rode by. She came off her horse on the beach and the camera survived better than her body!

    This 1300 series is even better! First test was at our daughter’s wedding this Saturday where my husband took the best candid shots. It was great to be able to so easily review wedding shots on the TV, especially to show the older grandparents the next day. He is leaving for Bonneville Land Speed Trials next week and I bet he uses this camera more than his big one with the big lens.
