As well as being compared against other compacts, the Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, ultra compacts, travel zooms and pro digicams. The Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS's top rivals come from Canon (such as the PowerShot SD1100 IS and the PowerShot ELPH 170 IS) and Nikon (such as the D5600 and the D5500)

compared toCompact competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon SD1300 IS compared to other compact competitors include: it has a much wider wide angle lens (28 mm vs 35 mm), has better image stabilization (lens vs sensor shift), is newer (february 2010 vs february 2008) and is slightly less expensive ($249.95 vs $399.00).

However, on average it has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS), doesn't have a viewfinder (none vs tunnel) and has a slower max shutter speed (1/1500 of a second vs 1/2000 of a second).
