Canon PowerShot A650 IS review

 

The Canon PowerShot A650 IS proves that you don't need to invest in an SLR to get manual controls and large, detailed pictures. As the new high-end member of Canon's PowerShot A-series line of cameras, the 12-megapixel camera comes packed with manual...

Great picture quality; manual exposure controls; flip-out screen.

Sluggish performance; heavy and bulky; can't use a neck strap.

Performance issues aside, the Canon PowerShot A650 IS combines large, good-looking photos and a generous feature set into a fine midrange shooter.

The Canon PowerShot A650 IS is based around a 6x optical zoom lens -- the 35mm equivalent of a 35 to 210mm zoom, an excellent range for all-purpose photography. It also includes a high resolution 12-megapixel sensor, more than enough for tack-sharp...

Camera Review: Canon A650 IS

 

While it won't fit in your pocket, Canon's 12.1-megapixel A650 IS ($300, street price), offers great performance and a well rounded feature set, making the extra width and weight easily justifiable. A 6x 35-210mm (35mm equivalent), f/2.8-4.8, optically...

Canon PowerShot A650 IS

 

Announced in August, 2007, the $399 Canon PowerShot A650 IS currently sits atop Canon's budget A-series line. The 12-megapixel camera improves upon its predecessor, the PowerShot A640 in several ways, including a higher megapixel count, a face...

While a camera priced at $399 can't be considered "budget", the A650 IS packs a ton of features for its price level. As the top camera in Canon's A-series, the A650 IS provides a feature-laden option for users who are upgrading from simpler...

Read an expert, independent digital camera review of the Canon PowerShot A650 IS digital camera.

The Canon PowerShot A650 IS is a full-featured camera that is easy-to-use and relatively affordable. The 6x optical zoom lens coupled with 12-megapixels of resolution are undoubtedly an attractive combination.
