Canon PowerShot A2200


$139.00 Released January, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Has a solid feel and weight, feels like a serious bit of equipment. Pictures are excellent, sharp and bright, on par with most handhelds. Macro mode works very well, can get very close to the subject if you want.

The Cons:No optical image stabilization. Flash takes a long time to recharge. Standard point & shoot - short zoom lens, slow shooting performance, noticeable ISO noise at all levels.

Canon PowerShot A2200 is a compact point-and-shoot digital camera built to be light and small enough to put in a pocket. This is a step up from the Canon PowerShot A1200, with a 14.1 megapixel sensor and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
