Canon PowerShot A2100 IS review

 

Let's be honest: a 3x or 4x optical zoom is not much help. Yes, it gets you a little closer if there's a fence or restraining order in the way, but you'll always want more. That's why stepping up to a 5x or 6x zoom such as the one in the Canon...

Excellent photo quality for the money; 6x zoom; simple operation, good feature set.

Mixed performance.

The Canon PowerShot A2100 IS offers good photo quality, some extra zoom range, and the convenience of AA batteries in an affordable, pocketable package.

Canon Powershot A2100 IS review

 

Because of its predecessor, the A2000IS, the fate of the Canon PowerShot A2100IS's had already been sealed: it would no longer provide the A/S mode (Aperture/Shutter priority) for the creative hobby photographer. An enhanced automation took its place,...

The Canon PowerShot A2100IS is the successor to the A2000IS and seems to be a camera update that is no more than a Megapixel increase. If you look at the specification list, this may seem exactly the case, yet there are in fact more differences. The...

Canon Powershot A2100 IS

 

This is a solid if slightly unspectacular offering from Canon. It does a good all round job when it comes to picture quality. Features include image stabilisation and a 3 inch LCD screen.

Picture quality - start up time

Shutter delay with flash

The Canon Powershot A2100 IS is a functional digital camera. It is unlikely to win any awards for looks, but it takes a good picture. You might find the modest increase in zoom useful too.

Canon PowerShot A2100 IS

 

The Canon PowerShot A2100 IS - with 6x optical zoom and Image Stabilisation, is Canon's new compact snapper the ideal pocketable point and shoot? The What Digital Camera Canon A2100 IS review investigates...

Image Stabilisation, 3in screen, super close-up macro mode, face detection

Screen views poorly from many angles, no full manual mode, body on the chunky side, main menu is cumbersome

The Canon PowerShot A2100 IS is a good all-rounder. With a broad zoom range, Image Stabilisation and basic feature set, it's an ideal contender for the point and shoot entry level market. Though it does come at a little bit of a raised asking price and...
