16 Reasons For

Good Brand

Canon compact camera digital cameras have good ratings on average and across all cameras Canon is one of the superior brands.

Fairly Large Screen Size

When compared to other digital cameras of this age and spec that we have assessed, the screen size of the IXUS 1100 of 3.2 inches is one of the largest. Across all the similar spec cameras that were released more than two years ago the screen sizes range from 1" to 4.8".

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3.2" screen digital cameras currently available including the IXUS 510 HS, the IXUS 240 HS, or the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS all from Canon which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a larger screen size then you might want to consider the Samsung MV900F (3.3"), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77 (3.5") which also has a higher rating.

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is the most commonly supported memory card on cameras of this spec and age. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If the memory card type of this Canon digital camera is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Sony DSC-WX350 (£159.00) (MicroSD (TransFlash and higher rated)|MicroSDHC|MicroSDXC|MS Duo|MS Micro (M2 and higher rated)|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated).
