Canon Powershot A2300 Digital Camera Review

Camera phones just don’t cut it.

Original Camera PhoneInstagram can make some of the photos “pretty”, but the quality is just not there.
So when I see people use camera phones as their primary source of photo-taking, I shiver a little.

Even worse are the – blech – iPad photos!

You don’t have to go all pro with a DSLR, but you can – at the least – use a basic point-and-shoot style camera to capture the memory!

Most point and shoot cameras are compact and can conveniently fit into a pocket or take up very little space in a handbag or backpack. The Canon Powershot A2300 digital camera is no exception! Weighing in at only 3.8 ounces, the camera’s dimensions are only 0.8 x 3.7 x 2.1 inches, making it smaller than an index card.

Canon Powershot A2300This compact camera packs 16 megapixels with a 28mm wide-angle lens and features a 2.7 inch color LCD for viewing just-taken photos. Other features include: DIGIC 4 image processor; 5x optical zoom, 4x digital zoom, 20x combined zoom; 32 predefined shooting scenes; reduction of camera shaking and subject movement with Digital IS.

The types of scene modes include:
Smart AUTO, portrait, poster effect, fireworks, long shutter, low light, discreet mode, and more.

One of the most handy features on this camera is the dedicated video recording button. I’ve found this very useful because I don’t have to flip through the menu to activate the recording function. Plus, videos are recorded in 720p. Pretty nifty for just a simple point and shoot!

For those who need something compact but delivers great non-camera-phone-quality images, this giveaway’s for you!
