Here you can see the SD1300's Smart Auto mode. In this exposure program, the camera chooses all the exposure settings for you, including applying the appropriate Scene mode settings; allowing you to simply point, and shoot. You can also see that we have the Grid Lines display option enabled via the Rec. menu.


canon_sd1300_rec_auto_menus_anim.gifMenu settings are limited in this mode. Above you can see the available options from both the main Rec. menu and the Function shortcut menu.

Next we have Program mode, which is also fully automatic. However, now you have access to more advanced camera settings; like ISO, White Balance, Focus modes, etc. All of the preset Scene modes are also available when the mode switch is in the "Camera" position.

When you half-press the shutter release the AF target will turn green indicating that the camera is focused and ready to take the picture. If the AF box is blue this indicated a moving focal target. No AF box indicates that the camera is unable to focus. The camera also displays which aperture, shutter speed, and ISO values have been chosen. If you see a bright orange beam (not shown above), this is the AF-assist lamp, which helps the camera focus in low light conditions.

  • Portrait
  • Night Snapshot
  • Kids & Pets
  • Indoor
  • Face Self-Timer
  • Low Light
  • Beach
  • Underwater (with optional housing)
  • Foliage

canon_sd1300_rec_display_anim.gifThe DISP button will change the amount of information that is displayed on the LCD screen. You can clear all info or show typical overlay information. Using the record menu, you can also enable grid lines, and a 3:2 shot guide (or both at the same time, as shown above).

canon_sd1300_rec_movie.jpgThe SD1300 can also record SD (standard Definition) video at either 640x480 and 320x240 resolutions (30fps), with audio (mono format). The optical zoom May Not be used during recording, however you do have access to the digital zoom feature; however I do not recommend using it as it can degrade image quality. Movie clips are recorded in QuickTime format and saved as .MOV files.

Both the video and audio portion of movies can be replayed on the camera thanks to the built-in speaker. Full audio-video playback is also possible when connected to a TV monitor or a compatible PC after downloading.
