Canon A2200 14.1 Megapixel Simple and Easy Reviews Roundup

On January 5 2010, Canon announced four new PowerShot A series cameras: the A3100 IS and A495, and the A3000 IS and A495. They're the first cameras announced that support the high capacity SDXC memory cards, supporting up to 2 terabytes of pictures (theoretically, until such a high memory card is available in the market).

The PowerShot A3100 IS cameras come with a 67mm (2.7-inch) LCD screen, 4x zoom and optical image stabilization. It replace the PowerShot A1100 IS. It is also the first of the budget A range to run off rechargeable lithium-ion batteries instead of shop-bought AA batteries.

Canon Powershot A2200 Camera Reviews Roundup


CNET US - Jun 29 2011
"Photo quality is very good to excellent for snapshots. Fine detail and sharpness are very good up to ISO 200 (though a little sharpening with photo-editing software improves things). Photos get noticeably softer at ISO 400 because of heavier noise reduction. Pixel peepers will see there's image noise at all ISO sensitivities, but it's not visible at reduced..." More »

    I went for a Canon because I like the brand and the colours they capture, Megan Cabral

    I bought this camera for two reasons... mostly as a carry-around P&S for occasions where lugging my DSLR wasn't appealing, and also as the main camera for my other family members to use.
    It's about what I expected for a camera at this price-point, with the bonus of being able to shoot HD.
    Personally, I don't find the lack of Image Stabilization a big deal. If I was looking for a P&S to be my main camera, the A2200 wouldn't be it - it's a bit too slow (perceptible shutter lag! time between photos!) and lack of IS would be the main reasons. I went for a Canon because I like the brand and the colours they capture. The images could be a bit sharper, and in the back of my mind I do find myself wishing for more manual settings (everything is a take on "auto"), but for a cheap everyday camera / entry-level camera this does the job.
    It's also really, really light. You have to look at your hands to make sure it's there!

    I love this camera it is easy to use for the most part and any questions I did have were in the instruction manual. I wish I would've gotten a different color though. It is a very simple efficient camera and I'd recommend this to friends for sure!!!

    We really love this camera! It's small and easy to fit into a pocket. It's so small, the case we already had now has plenty of room for other items. It also takes great pictures, and we're looking forward to seeing how long it lasts for us.

    Durable and well priced for the quality, Kyle Baker

    I used this camera on a LDS mission in Guatemala. It took a beating. Rain storms, droppings, the battery had to deal with some nasty power surges when charging, but this thing held together. The picture quality is super nice as well. Thanks to the mission experience, I saw a lot of cameras from other missionaries, and this camera beat out a lot of cameras that were double in price, especially in durability. One of the greatest things about this camera is its speed. It's quick to power on. The menus are fast and fluid. With my class 10 SD card from Amazon, pictures loaded up instantly and scrolling was never cumbersome. I'd recommend this camera to anyone who was looking for a durable camera that also happens to take great pictures.

    This an incredible camera, especially for a beginner or novice camera bug. It has an "easy to use" setting as well as advanced settings for a real camera buff. It is very compact and light weight. The picture quality is good and I recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive, easy to use digital camera.

    Great for traveling, Amazon Customer
    Verified Purchase(
    This compact and lightweight camera is great for traveling. The last thing I want to do on vacation is walk around all day carrying a bulky, heavy camera. This camera can fit in a pocket. It is easy to use. Just point and shoot and many of your pictures will come out great. Like with any camera, there comes a point when you have to learn how to use all the features to capture the beauty that you see around you.
    The reason I only gave this little camera 4 stars. It's the screen. It's not very good (and it's quite small) so I can never tell what my pictures will look like until I get them home and put them up on my monitor. And that's a problem when you're traveling. Maybe you can't go back and retake a shot.
    My new phone takes pictures as well as this (slightly better as it is 15 MP) and the HD screen on my phone is larger. I can see what I have when I take a photo. If I had this phone two years ago, I wouldn't have purchased this camera.

    Takes quality pics. But the camera pauses for about 1 min. In between shots. Make sure you're not taking pics of moving objects
