The official marketing text of Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Compact camera 12.1MP 1/2.3" CCD 4000 x 3000pixels Blue as supplied by the manufacturer

The easy-to-use PowerShot A1100 IS uses Scene Detection, Face Detection and Motion Detection to optimise settings and ensure great results – it’s as simple as pointing and shooting.


- 12.1 MP
- 4x optical zoom
- Smart Auto & Easy modes with Scene Detection Technology
- Face Detection AF/AE/FE/WB and Face Select & Track
- Motion Detection Technology
- Auto Red-Eye Correction
- 2.5” LCD with OVF
- Compact design in 3 colour variations
- VGA movies

Simply point and shoot for great results.

12.1 Megapixels
With a 12.1 MP sensor, you can capture every scene in incredible detail – print up to A2 size, or crop to achieve the desired composition without losing the detail necessary for larger prints.

4x optical zoom with optical Image Stabilizer
A 4x optical zoom allows for a wide choice of framing options. Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer keeps images sharp by reducing the effects of camera shake throughout the zoom range.

Great shots without the effort
Smart Auto mode uses intelligent Scene Detection Technology to determine subject brightness, contrast, distance and overall hue. The camera then selects the most appropriate scene mode from a total of 18 to obtain perfect settings for the scene. Easy mode ensures correct camera usage by deactivating all buttons except those used for shooting.

Face Detection Technology
A suite of Face Detection technologies detects up to 35 faces in a shot, adjusting focus, exposure, flash settings and white balance – for optimal results with natural-looking skin tones. Face Select & Track allows a single face in a crowd to be selected and tracked as the main subject. FaceSelf-Timer takes a shot when an extra face is detected in the frame – making group photos easy.

Motion Detection Technology
Motion Detection Technology uses a range of advanced methods to ascertain movement of both camera and subject, plus the speed at which this motion occurs. The optimum ISO is then automatically set for any situation.

Auto Red-Eye Correction
Face Detection Technology is used to accurately detect and remove the red-eye effect caused by flash photography. This function can be performed automatically by the camera or manually in playback.

DIGIC 4 processing
Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor drives responsive operation, superb image quality and colour reproduction. Advanced Noise Reduction ensures richly detailed, cleaner images, even at high ISO speeds.

2.5” LCD with OVF
The bright 2.5” LCD allows easy viewing of images and video. Choose between LCD and the optical viewfinder (OVF) to frame shots.

Compact design in 3 colour variations
Compact and portable, the PowerShot A1100 IS is tactile, easy to use, and comes in a choice of three fresh colours: blue, pink or silver

VGA movies
Record smooth, 30fps VGA movie clips at the touch of a button. A special Long Play option uses around half the normal memory card space.

Picture quality
Camera type *
There are a number of common types of digital cameras: compact cameras, bridge cameras, mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) and single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Bridge cameras 'bridge the gap' between the low-end compact and high-end professional (SLR) cameras. Also MILCs populate this mid-segment by combining the larger sensors and interchangeable lenses of DSLRs with the live-preview viewing system of compact cameras.
Compact camera
Megapixel *
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
12.1 MP
Image sensor size *
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Maximum image resolution *
Resolution is the amount of detail held by an image. The higher the resolution, the better (sharper) the image. The maximum image resolution produces the best image.
4000 x 3000 pixels
Image stabilizer *
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Lens system
Optical zoom *
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom *
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
6.2 - 24.8 mm
Focus adjustment *
Auto focusing (AF) modes *
Modes on the camera for auto-focusing, including continuous focusing and one shop focusing.
Continuous Auto Focus, Single Auto Focus
Closest focusing distance
0.03 m
Auto Focus (AF) lock
Auto Focus (AF) assist beam
Light exposure
ISO sensitivity *
A measure of a photographic film's sensitivity to light.
80, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, Auto
Light metering *
Light metering mode refers to the way in which a device determines the exposure. Multi-pattern and evaluative metering: the camera measures the light intensity in several points in the scene. Centre-weighted metering: the meter concentrates between 60 to 80 percent of the sensitivity towards the central part of the viewfinder. Spot metering: the camera will only measure a very small area of the scene (between 1-5% of the viewfinder area).
Centre-weighted, Spot
Flash modes *
Different modes for a camera flash which are manually/automatically activated e.g. auto-flash mode, flash on with red eye reduction.
Auto, Manual, Red-eye reduction, Slow synchronization

PictBridge *
PictBridge is an industry standard introduced in 2003 from the Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) for direct printing. It allows images to be printed directly from digital cameras to a printer, without having to connect the camera to a computer using common connectivity like USB or Bluetooth.
USB version *
Universal Serial Bus (USB) is an industry standard developed in the mid-1990s that defines the interface used for connection, communication and power supply between computers and electronic devices. Every new version - for example 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 - is much faster than the previous one.
White balance *
Technique in photography and image processing, which involves a global adjustment of the intensities of the colors (typically red, green, and blue primary colors). An important goal of this adjustment is to render specific colors – particularly neutral colors including white – correctly.
Auto, Cloudy, Custom modes, Daylight, Fluorescent, Tungsten
Scene modes *
Scenery mode', 'Portrait mode' and other modes which are manually/automatically activated on a camera and change the settings (e.g. exposure time) accordingly.

Different effects that you can use to modify photos after they have been taken, such as colour filters.
Black&White, Neutral, Sepia, Vivid
Self-timer delay *
Duration of self-timer, that's a camera device that gives a delay between pressing the shutter release and the shutter's firing. It is most commonly used to let photographers to take a photo of themselves (often with the family), hence the name.
