Excerpt: Good looks married with a high-resolution sensor and a capable focal range makes the Canon PowerShot A3300 IS appear as one of the better budget options. Read our Canon PowerShot A3300 IS review...
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 and a range of scene modes.
The technology works in practice too.
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: The Canon PowerShot A3300 IS is a typical Canon point-and-shoot. It's very similar to its PowerShot siblings so there really isn't anything new here, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Canon's P&S digital cameras share more than a "look" and operating system similarities - they have earned an amazing level of customer loyalty because of their dependably excellent image quality, reliable performance, durability and ease of use.
Excerpt: On the look out for an entry level snapshot, and have a bit over £100 to spend? The A3300 IS has a suggested asking price exactly £20 more than its PowerShot “A” family doppelganger in the A3200 IS , give or take a couple of body colour options.
Pros: Solid feel build, decent pixel count, easy to use feature set, most of the latest must haves are here
Conclusion: The Canon Powershot A3300 IS will not be the most stylish digital camera I review this year or have the most exciting features, but it does what it sets out to do well. In a nutshell it takes a good photo and is available at a very reasonable price. If you are looking for a no fuss digital camera and you do not want to spend a fortune this one is well worth considering.
