Summary: the power shot A2600 is a fair camera takes good pictures. it is slow to focus and reset not good for kids or action shots. Also it DOES NOT charge with a USB cable and you have to remove the battery and put it in a large plug in charging unit to charge it. it is a pain to get the battery out and back in you have to pay attention to the way the battery goes in you can put it in backwards, this is a major draw back to this camera.
Summary: Manual is online, which I find annoying. Selected pic mode continually changes. Does not stay in place like a dial selector. I wanted a very small camera to tuck in purse/pocket and this one is small enough, but I will probably give away as I find it annoying to use and the indoor pics have a funny orangish tint which requires photoshopping each one to get correct colors etc. I usually use a Nikon D70s so maybe I'm expecting too much from this camera.
Summary: The rechargeable battery has to be removed to be charged. Every time you remove the battery the camera's settings have to be reset. Gets a little annoying after a while. Just not what I expected from a Canon. Pros: Nice quality photos.
Summary: It does great on indoor video, but feels cheaply built. Moreover, I do not like the camera's light sensors forcing setting. circumventing the camera chosen settings is not a simple and easy step. If automatic settings are left, then the picture color is distorted. I take close up pictures of feathers, and the lens quality is too poor for that use. It does not take clear and crisp macro pictures.
Summary: I loved the color of the camera and after looking at a few the price was a good thought so I figured lets do it... now after a week of having it I am running away... The first night I took a picture in door (well the first 30) all but 6 were blurry... which is a LARGE disappointment... I tried the different functions and still nothing amazing...
Excerpt: Что могу сказать по поводу Canon A2600 - обычная мыльница с ужасным качеством снимков!!!! Необходима была срочная покупка по невысокой цене, до этого был Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3, решили выбирать с линейки Canon,в надежде, что снимки не будут хуже предыдущего аппарата. Сейчас с такой матрицей 1/2.5 редко где встретишь, а уж тем более среди мыльниц за такую цену, приобрели обычный с матрицей 1/2.3 с 16 Мп.
Pros: разве что компактность
Cons: качество снимков, видео, плохая ночная съемка
