    Great camera for quick snaps, June 29, 2012

    We’ve had this camera now for a few weeks and have come to really like it. It is so thin and lightweight that it can easily be carried in a pocket, purse, or backpack. Compared to the size of today’s smartphones, this is actually smaller than some.

    The pictures are decent. I find some of the interior pictures are a bit grainy, even with the flash. The flash is plenty bright – so no issues there. Switching to low light mode made all the difference. This quick change off the menu function made for clear crisp pictures.

    Outdoor pictures are really outstanding. Super clear and crisp. Sometimes it has problems figuring out what to focus on. However, when a face appears, it is really pretty good at identifying it and focusing on it.

    One of my favorite features is the rechargable lithium ion battery. I hate having to deal with batteries. However, it is a bit of an annoyance to get it charged as it requires the battery to be ejected from the camera and placed into a charger.

    The final reason why this inexpensive camera does not get a five star rating is the long time it takes between pictures. Even on a fully charged battery, it takes on average 5 seconds for the camera to process each shot. If you are trying to take a bunch of group photos, this can seem like forever.

    Overall – I like this camera. It is relatively inexpensive and takes great snapshots.

    Great Compact Point And Shoot, May 25, 2012

    The Canon A2300 is a great point and shoot camera for casual users. It’s easy to use, and takes very clear pictures with wonderful color rendition. It has reasonable resolution (clarity) in zoom mode, and performs well for action shots at sporting events. The auto mode settings are fine for most photos. Low light zoom shots (such as stage shows in dark auditoriums)may not be completely acceptable, but that’s a tough condition for any camera and should NOT be considered a serious flaw. The movie mode works well, with good clarity and color. Bottom line: for everyday shapshots (condidering the performance, features, and price) you’ll be happy with the A2300. For more details you can download the user manual from the Canon website.

    So far so good., April 10, 2012

    This is a pretty neat little camera.
    This is not a power house this is a small camera to carry for quick shots of your kids or even something light to travel with when you larger camera is packed up in your luggage.

    It has a few simple really useful functions, a modest zoom (though 5x out does some of the other cameras like this)the lens seems to be doing it’s job. 16 mega pixels makes for a pretty clear photo.

    There is small shutter lag but a good sd card seems to help that and it’s on par with other digital cameras of this kind.

    I really like this little camera and I look forward to using it.
    So far…
    Cute
    Light
    Compact
    easy to use
    decent photos
    A+ for this sort of camera.

    I will update at a later date after I use it a bit, maybe even post a sample photo or two.
