  • Summary: In closing, I have to admit that I was a bit surprised by the capability of such an affordable camera. I imagine that there will be quite a few Canon A3100 models handed out as gifts to new digital camera users in the coming months and in the 2010 holiday season.

  • Summary: Canon's new PowerShot A3100 IS is one of the first in the "A" series line to feature a Li-Ion battery pack, instead of using standard AA-type cells. This allows the 12.1-Megapixel camera to be very thin and more compact than the other cameras in this series.
  • Pros: 12.1 Megapixel, 1/2.3-inch CCD imaging sensor, DIGIC III image processor, 4x optical zoom lens with a 35mm film equivalent: 35-140mm; f/2.7 (W) - f/5.6 (T), Optical Image Stabilization, 2.7-inch, 230,000 dot LCD screen, 15 - 1/1600 sec. total shutter range, ISO 80-1600, Smart Auto shooting mode, ...
  • Cons: 12.1 Megapixel, 1/2.3-inch CCD imaging sensor, DIGIC III image processor, 4x optical zoom lens with a 35mm film equivalent: 35-140mm; f/2.7 (W) - f/5.6 (T), Optical Image Stabilization, 2.7-inch, 230,000 dot LCD screen, 15 - 1/1600 sec. total shutter range, ISO 80-1600, Smart Auto shooting mode, ...

  • Summary: It just so happens that the Canon PowerShot A3100 IS arrived in our labs at just the same time as the Nikon Coolpix L22. Both have a similar resolution and a similar zoom range. Both also produce decent but not brilliant pictures (the L22's are actually a little better).
  • Pros: Smart metal body; clear and efficient controls.
  • Cons: Poor lens performance; unadventurous specs; too expensive.

  • Conclusion: The A3100 IS is a budget camera so unfortunately everything on it is what you would expect it to be- budget. However for the price it would be hard to find something better on the market.
