Camera Labs
1 February 2010
  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot A3100 IS is a 12.1 Megapixel compact with a stabilised 4x optical zoom lens, and a 2.7 in LCD screen. It's the first Canon A series compact to use a Lithium-ion battery, as all prevous models took a pair of AA batteries. Released concurrently, the PowerShot A3000 IS, which in the UK is exclusively sold by Argos stores, is the same camera with a 10 Megapixel sensor and a silver-only finish.
  • Pros: Well built, compact and classy., Excellent optical image stabilization., Fast flash recycling., Good practical zoom range.
  • Cons: Inconsistent image quality., Fiddly mode dial., Coarse zoom control., Poor battery life.

A small and light Canon PowerShot digital camera that produces excellent image quality

Good Gear Guide.au
14 September 2010
  • Summary: Canon's PowerShot A3000 IS is a very light compact camera that's highly automatic yet can take very clear images. Its pictures are good enough that you can view them at their full size without losing any major details. However, we don't like the design of the camera much and it could use a better shutter button and zoom controls.
  • Pros: Image clarity, great for macros, no noticeable chromatic aberration, decent low-light performance, very light
  • Cons: Shutter button can be hard to press, zoom buttons can be awkward, focus not always accurate

In den letzten Jahren hat der japanische Hersteller sukzessive manuelle Einstellungsmöglichkeiten und optischen Sucher aus der günstigsten PowerShot-Reihe eliminiert. Wie es um die übrige Ausstattung, die Geschwindigkeit und die Bildqualität bestellt ist, verrät dieser Testbericht.
  • Pros: optischer Bildstabilisator, tolle Bildqualität
  • Cons: langweilige Ausstattung, langsam
