Canon PowerShot A2400 IS Review

 

Canon is gradually refreshing its PowerShot and IXUS series of digital cameras. Depending on the models, the updates include better optics, inclusion of image stabilization, new DIGIC V image processor, Full HD video recording, Wi-Fi connectivity,...

The Canon PowerShot A2400 IS is priced at 7,995 and its younger sibling without image stabilization, the A2300 costs 1,000 less. Unless you’re restricted by budget, it’s wiser to go in for the A2400 IS because image stabilization yields steady...

Canon PowerShot A2400 IS (Pink)

 

When it comes to entry-level point-and-shoots, Canon's A-series PowerShots consistently excel in picture quality. That certainly holds true for the 16-megapixel A2400 IS and A2300.

The Canon PowerShot A2400 IS and PowerShot A2300 have very good picture quality for their class and are loaded with effects and filters.

The cameras' flat buttons and cramped layout may make use difficult for some and shooting performance is slow, particularly shot-to-shot. The lenses require a lot of light or high ISOs when zoomed in. Battery life is short.

The entry-level Canon PowerShot A2400 IS and its IS-less linemate the A2300 are simple cameras with nice picture quality for casual snapshooters, but the price difference isn't worth sacrificing the image stabilization.

Canon PowerShot A2400 IS Review

 

Although the extremely low price of the Canon Powershot A2400 IS will make it a tempting choice, keep in mind that it's aimed at beginners, and it doesn't give those with some photography experience much to entice them. The A2400 IS does do a decent...

Control buttons on back panel are too small and aren't comfortable to use ; Control buttons aren't raised away from the camera, making it difficult to press them at times ; More experienced photographers won't find much to like due to a lack in manual...

Canon PowerShot A2400 IS

 

The Canon PowerShot A2400 IS is a well-built, inexpensive point-and-shoot camera that features an sharp, optically stabilized lens. So-so performance at higher ISOs and limited support for video capture is part of the bargain, though.

Inexpensive. Sharp, optically stabilized lens. Speedy performance

Noisy images at high ISOs. Limited video support

The A2400 isn't exactly a slow poke, but it's not the fastest gun in the Wild West either. It takes 2.4 seconds to start up and take a photo, can snap a shot every 1.4 seconds in continuous drive mode, and records a 0.3 second shutter lag. This puts it...

Portable point-and-shoot with limited controls but surprisingly strong performance.

Slim and portable; Excellent color accuracy

Very annoying rear control panel; Destructive noise reduction

"Blown Out and Blurry Pics"

 

I had an older Canon Powershot and it pained me to part with it. The pics were great for a point and shoot. I thought this model would be an improvement... I was DEAD WRONG. This camera is terrible and I definitely wasted my money on this purchase. All...

This camera's design is nice. Small and easy to carry. Easy to pull from the pocket in those "I need a pic of this!" moments. I like the "discreet" mode for those concerts when you want to get a pic of your favorite singer without disturbing others.

This camera can't focus.The image stabilizer is TERRIBLE. I have a RebelT2i and comparing the IS is no contest.All my pics (whites) are always blown out & overexposed and just terrible quality pics. Not worth taking to your child's Christmas concert.
