Canon PowerShot A3000 IS

 

Canon's PowerShot A3000 IS doesn't deliver the best low-light performance, peppy shooting speeds, or extra bells and whistles, but it does deliver sharp, clean images in good light or with flash—at a very affordable price.

Low price. Canon's least expensive camera to include optical image stabilization. Great image quality in well-lit conditions or with flash. Easy mode for photography newbies.

No HD video capture. Slow shot-to-shot speed.

Canon PowerShot A3000 IS review

 

Canon's PowerShot A3000 IS continues the A series' trajectory toward "easy and fun" photography by abandoning a feature the line was known for in the past: AA-size batteries. This camera as well as its 12-megapixel linemate, the A3100 IS, uses a...

Optical image stabilization; good photo quality for its price.

Slow shooting performance; bland feature set.

The PowerShot A3000 IS is a good budget-friendly Canon compact, if nothing else.

Canon A3000 IS

 

Delivers a lot of performance and a decent set of features for the price

Consistently sharp images; Solid construction

Very visible noise at high ISOs; Some color issues

The Canon PowerShot A3000 IS shows how far digital cameras have come in recent years. It used to be that cheap cameras shot poor, grainy images filled with noise and with inaccurate colors. But we found that this is not true anymore: the A3000 IS is a...

The Canon PowerShot A3100 IS is an affordable 12.1 Megapixel compact with a stabilized 4x zoom lens and 2.7in LCD screen. Launched in January 2010 it replaces the best-selling PowerShot A1100 IS with a radical redesign of the body and controls. Most...

Well built, compact and classy ; Excellent optical image stabilization ; Fast flash recycling ; Good practical zoom range

Inconsistent image quality ; Fiddly mode dial ; Coarse zoom control ; Poor battery life

Canon PowerShot A3000 IS

 

A small and light Canon PowerShot digital camera that produces excellent image quality

Image clarity, great for macros, no noticeable chromatic aberration, decent low-light performance, very light

Shutter button can be hard to press, zoom buttons can be awkward, focus not always accurate

Canon's PowerShot A3000 IS is a very light compact camera that's highly automatic yet can take very clear images. Its pictures are good enough that you can view them at their full size without losing any major details. However, we don't like the design...

Canon PowerShot A3000 IS

 

Is the A3000 more than just another budget compact?

The Li-Ion cell brings the A-series up-to-date, but the A3000 fails to match its competition on specs and image quality. The build and Image Stabilisation does go some way to redeeming it, however.
