Canon PowerShot A75

 

High-speed burst mode; versatile manual and automatic controls; impressive image quality; high-quality video capture.

Moderate shutter lag; no TIFF option; not very compact.

The high-speed capture, very good image quality, and manual exposure controls of this low-cost Canon will appeal to snapshot photographers who like to get creative.

Canon USA Powershot A75 Digital Camera Camera

 

The $299 PowerShot A75 is a neat little camera. With a bulge on the left side that makes it easy to grip, it comes with features you usually find on cameras costing hundreds more, such as aperture- and shutter-priority modes, manual focus,...

Like the other Canon cameras we've reviewed, the A75 has a better than average software bundle--a selection of Canon imaging utilities and ArcSoft's Camera Suite--and a thorough, easy-to-read set of documentation

Like its predecessor, the A75 is a 3.2 Megapixel camera with a 3X optical zoom, full manual controls, support for conversion lenses, and more. It's now available for $299

Very good photo quality ; Robust performance ; AF-assist lamp ; Lots of manual controls for a cheap camera ; Support for conversion lenses, underwater case ; Lots of scene modes ; Impressive software package

No diopter correction knob ; No rechargeable batteries included ; Movie mode not so hot in 2004

The Canon PowerShot A75 has some nice improvements over the already excellent A70. This includes a larger, high resolution LCD, PictBridge support, data imprinting, and more. Photo quality is very good, and so is the camera's performance. I continue to...

"Very impressive and durable camera for the price"

 

I have used other (newer) Canon PowerShot cameras with this same body style (the A series) and I am continually impressed with how the A75 (a) feels more solidly build (b) does not disappoint with features (c) offers impressive image quality. I've been...

Great image quality

Might like a higher megapixel image quality (compared to what is on the market these days in 2010) however for 2005, this was a good offering for the price.

Product Specifications

The PowerShot A75 is easy to use yet fully equipped to explore the world of digital photography. With Canon Visionary Technology, this camera delivers breathtaking results at an affordable price. Even though it contains a host of advanced technologies, the PowerShot A75 has been designed so first time users can switch on and start shooting for immediate, great results - straight out of the box. Yet for those that intuitively push the boundaries of their products, this 3.2 Megapixel camera comes packed with a host of features. The PowerShot A75 has a 3x optical zoom to close in on the action, giving photographers greater scope to get the composition just right. 13 versatile shooting modes are on board for you to experiment with - including a new 'Scene Mode' which gives access to special pre-programmed creative modes such as 'fireworks', 'foliage', 'beach' and 'snow'. The 9-point AiAF helps to ensure pictures are always perfectly focused, even when the subject is not centered. Take up to 180 second movie clips, complete with sound recording and playback on the generous 1.8" LCD monitor. For very high definition playback on a TV, the camera can even record up to 30 second VGA clips. Every function on the PowerShot A75 works with you to help take great photos. Canon Visionary Technologies combine in the form of a superb quality lens, precision sensor and super fast processor to ensure accurate, high clarity image rendering. To speed up focusing and optimize exposures, the camera analyzes the scene and makes setting adjustments even before the shutter release is pressed.
