  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot A2000 IS is a nice compact camera which is very affordable. With 10 megapixels, a 6X optical zoom lens, optical image stabilization and 3 inch LCD, and now a slimmer design than its predecessors, the PowerShot A2000 is certainly appealing to those looking for a capable camera with a low price tag.

Canon PowerShot A2000 IS

28 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Canon seems to be firing on all cylinders, continually expanding their PowerShot A-series of budget and mainstream digital cameras. The latest additions to the series are the A1000 IS and A2000 IS which feature a 10 megapixel sensor and a sleeker design, but come minus some of the useful features that have so far been standard on the A-series. We took the A2000 IS outdoors for a photography session to find out how well it clicks.

  • Conclusion: Canon PowerShot A2000 IS digital camera The Canon PowerShot A2000 IS camera has a lot to offer. Perhaps so much as far as manual settings are concerned, but a lot in the sense of ease and user-friendliness. The many auto image solutions and handy scenes do make the life of a photographer a lot easier. The camera will certainly appeal to the snapshot photographer, more so when the Easy Mode is selected.

Canon PowerShot A2000 IS camera

18 March 2009
  • Summary: As a camera, the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS is distinctly average. We got better results from the similarly priced Ricoh R10 and preferred its design too. That said, this is much better than your average point-and-shoot model and takes reasonably good shots in all but interior settings.

  • Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot A2000 ($229) is an entry-level camera with a pretty nice point-and-shoot feature set. The A2000 features a 6X optical zoom, image stabilization, a 3-inch LCD display, face detection, and plenty of scene modes. It also comes in a slimmer, more attractive body than its predecessor, the PowerShot A720.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality (in good light), Good value for the money, 6X optical zoom lens in a relatively compact body, Optical image stabilization, 3-inch LCD with good low light visibility (but see issues below), Redeye not a problem thanks to automatic removal tool, Well implemented face detection feature, Can record up to an hour of VGA quality video, Uses AA batteries; excellent battery life with optional NiMH batteries
  • Cons: A real step down from the PowerShot A720 (for reasons described above), Lots of noise reduction in low light; images get noisy in good light after ISO 400, Flash is slow to charge, Slow lens (in terms of max aperture), LCD has poor viewing angle, No optical viewfinder, Fewer manual controls than its predecessor, Can't swap memory cards while using a tripod

Canon PowerShot A2000IS

Camera Labs
1 November 2008
  • Summary: Canon’s PowerShot A2000 IS is a good value compact with a longer than average optical zoom range and very effective image stabilisation. It may be lacking the 28mm wide angle coverage of Panasonic’s models or Canon’s own IXUS 870IS / SD 880IS, but it’ll outgun most at the price in the telephoto stakes, zooming into an equivalent of 216mm. This is ideal if you find yourself frustrated with the maximum reach of other compacts.
  • Pros: 6x optical zoom range., Very effective stabilisation, Runs on two AA batteries., 3in screen bigger than before.
  • Cons: Lacking true wide angle lens coverage., Screen has small viewing angle., Slow flash recycling time., Slow 1.3fps continuous shooting.
