Canon PowerShot A3500 IS
1 November 2013
Summary: The Canon PowerShot A3500 IS is a 16 Megapixel point-and-shoot compact with a 5x stabilised optical zoom, a 3-inch 230k dot LCD screen and built-in wi-fi. It's the second from top model in Canon's PowerShot A Series, the flagship PowerShot A4000 IS is identical in most respects, but has a more powerful 8x zoom and lacks the built-in wi-fi.
Pros: 5x stabilised optical zoom., Built-in Wi-fi, and GPS via a smartphone., Optical zoom works in movie mode., Eco mode extends battery life.
Cons: Lacklustre image quality., Poor high ISO noise performance., Complicated wi-fi operation., Lengthy shooting mode menu.
Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot A3500 IS looks a little bit wider than your average digital compact camera. Arguably, this is to accommodate the wide screen that's found on the back. However, it's only a 3 inch version that's found on any camera. Looking at the back, the camera appears to have been made wider to allow for more space on the back. Not for the screen, though. It's actually for the larger-than-usual buttons that sit next to the screen.
Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot A3500 IS was announced in January 2013 and is a budget camera, with a 16 megapixel sensor and 5x optical zoom lens, as well as built-in Wi-Fi. It is available in black, silver and red and is priced at around £109.
Pros: Good value for money, Built-in Wi-Fi, Well built body, Help button, Eco mode
Cons: Short battery life, Skin tones aren't great in portrait mode, Image quality could be better
Excerpt: Fazit: Die Canon PowerShot A3500 IS ernüchtert im Test mit schwacher Bildqualität und träger Performance. Zwar klingen 16 Megapixel und eingebautes WLAN verlockend. Doch hohes Bildrauschen und langsames Tempo relativieren die Begeisterung schnell. Selbst in dieser Preisklasse können Sie mehr erwarten.
Pros: WLAN integriert, Handlich und leicht, Einfache Bedienung
Cons: Bildrauschen, Farbsäume im Tele, Autofokus langsam, Display-Auflösung gering
