Canon's A-series has been their budget line, yet the features on these models are more than enough for the casual shooter. They're a little boxier than the ELPHs and certainly not as stylish, yet these latest models feature 16 megapixel sensors and decent zoom ranges. The A1300, along with the A810, runs off of AA batteries and has a 28-140mm 5x zoom. It doesn't have image stabilization or a fancy new CMOS sensor, yet for $120 you can't go too wrong. The A1300 includes a viewfinder while the A810 does not.
