6 June 2011
Summary: The Canon PowerShot A3300 IS is a well-built camera with a decent standard of image quality, but with such a populated sensor it’s not a great surprise that dynamic range and image noise control both suffer.
Pros: Build quality, pleasing design, useful focal range with wideangle lens
Cons: Screen does not always reproduce the scene faithfully, slight noise on all sensitivities, highlight details easily lost
Summary: The Canon PowerShot A3300 IS is a 16 Megapixel compact with a 3 inch LCD screen and a 5x stabilised optical zoom lens. It sits at the top of Canon's A series compact range which combines point-and-shoot auto exposure modes with ease of use features like scene detection, face detection, Smart shutter...
Pros: 5x stabilised optical zoom., 28mm equivalent wide angle., Creative filters and Live View Control., 720p HD video.
Cons: Difficult to operate control pad., No optical zoom on video., No HDMI port., Poor continuous shooting performance.
Summary: At first glance Canon’s new PowerShot A3300 IS doesn’t look like the culmination of a century and a half of photographic progress, but it is. During the 19th century photographers captured images on large and very delicate glass plates loaded (one at a time) into very slow tripod mounted view...
Pros: Easy to use, Very good image quality, 720p HD video
Cons: Tendency to overexpose, Flat contrast typical to class, Trouble viewing LCD outside
Summary: The Canon PowerShot A3300 IS is priced (M.O.P) at Rs. 7,950. The ideal target audience for this camera is people who require a camera for casual snaps because it will be ideal to use at family functions, parties, because of its compact form factor.
Conclusion: The A3300 IS will appeal to those for whom the highest pixel count possible is a major draw. While we’re hard pressed to see the detail an extra two million pixels bring (except perhaps marginally more image noise at higher ISOs), the slightly larger 3-inch screen on this camera compared with its...
Pros: Solid feel build, decent pixel count, easy to use feature set, most of the latest must haves are here
Summary: Ok, so as a brand new camera the Canon Powershot A3300 IS doesn't break any new ground, but what it does offer is a decent build, good image quality and excellent noise control for the resolution and tiny sensor. It also offers fun features such as the miniature, fish eye and toy camera effects.
