Canon A3000 IS
Advantages: Stylish, compact and lightweight, photography made simple.
Disadvantages: Doesn't have a vast array of options and settings to fiddle with.
Digital cameras don't last forever. Having previously owned Canon digital cameras in the past I decided to stick with the brand as I trust their quality, both in the product itself and the resulting imagery. The Canon Powershot A3000 IS seemed to fit the bill perfectly with its large 2.7" screen and sleek and stylish design. I find that a lot of Canon cameras are outstanding in the looks department, I have also learnt they are great at taking pictures with too!
The canon Powershot A3000 IS is available for around the £100-£120 mark generally online, but Argos currently have it for sale at £57.99, down from £69.99, so the price can vary greatly depending where you shop. The body of the A3000 IS is slimline and also fairly light, making it easy to carry and store in a bag or pocket. The 10 megapixel camera captures high detail images and comes with a 4x optical zoom. There are no trickyl or fiddly settings, so shots are simple to take. Intelligent scene mode ensures you are able to capture a high quality image due to its ability to detect the type of image you are viewing. An optical image stabilizer and motion detection technology are also at hand to allow you to take the best quality images regardless of your ability.
The body of the A3000 IS is predominantly silver, with a strip of black down one side. I like the styling of the camera, and the large screen is also excellent for both getting a good, accurante shot, and also for managign the images you have just taken. This digital camera is compatible with SD cards and this allows you to transfer the images easily to your PC/laptop, but also means you can store endless numbers of images at your leisure.
The Canon Powershot A3000 IS is very easy to use and I have never had any issues with the quality of pictures, or the simplicity of capturing them in the first place. Battery life is also respectable, meaning I can go away for the day without the worry to conserve battery power. A rechargeable battery is included in the package which is simple to recharge when you are not using the camera. I am really looking forward to using the Canon Powershot A3000 IS on my next expedition abroad. Cameras can be vital to the enjoyment of a trip, especially to countries you just know you will never return. A very reasonably priced digital camera that with make capturing terrific moments a pleasure.
Summary: Great for the casual photographer, a little basic for the more adventurous.
