Canon PowerShot A3200 IS Camera Review
1 May 2013
Summary: The Canon PowerShot A3200 IS Digital Camera is a compact and elegant design available in 4 fashionable colors. Among the features stand out the optical image stabilizer, face detection and scene files and video clips in HD. The rest of the specifications is average, decent optical zoom, self-sufficient and not particularly high ISO.
Pros: 28 mm wide-angle lens, DIGIC 4 processor, Face Detection, Creative Filters, Live View Control, Smart Auto mode
Excerpt: If you are looking for a camera that does not require a lot of professional experience to take good pictures, then you may want to take a look at the Canon PowerShot A3200 IS. I got to spend a little time with the device and below you will find my opinion...
Conclusion: While this camera takes great pictures from the box, it's not immediately obvious how to switch between the various scene modes. The autofocus tends to hunt around in lower light conditions and it's the HD video maxes out at 720p rather than 1080.
Conclusion: The Canon Powershot A3200 IS offers fair value for money. It takes a good quality snapshot in most situations although there were a couple of instances where I found the camera struggled. It offers you a good set of features for the price.
Pros: Macro shot - colours - sharpness at mid zoom - HD movies - Features for price
Cons: Loss of definition when lens zoomed right out - noise creeps in quickly in shady areas - shutter delay with flash
Excerpt: Looking at the svelte exterior, the small A3200 IS has little to offer but it's all in the design because there's more under the hood that isn't accessed using buttons and switches. Despite the moderate zoom, the Canon Powershot A3200 IS has an image stabiliser to steady your shots in low light where the shutter speed may have dropped.
Summary: Another tiny (in size) PowerShot - the Canon PowerShot A3200is from Canon . Since going to the solid battery offering for PowerShot s they have managed to fit everything into a body that means the whole unit slips easily into a pocket.
Excerpt: With its metal body and clean, simple lines the Canon Powershot A3200 is a joy to hold. The buttons all sit within easy reach of the thumb, too, making camera operation feel second nature. Combine this with the simple and intuitive menu system and you have a camera that couldn't be easier to use. The A3200 looks great, with a simple yet functional shape and an elegantly curved front. There are four colours to choose from - orange, blue, sliver, pink.
Conclusion: With the compact camera market static in terms of growth and lower range models being picked off by mobile phones with built-in cameras, the Canon PowerShot A3200 IS seeks to buck that trend with a fair price, a solid construction and design that stops just short of upstaging the IXUS range. It sports just enough features to stop you from getting bored, and few enough for the camera to remain easy to use.
Pros: Very reasonable asking price, good quality build, decent feature set and results
Cons: Not Full HD video, optical zoom disabled while recording, no HDMI output
