The Canon PowerShot A650 IS is the updated version of the very successful Canon Powershot A64. This updated release was made specifically in 2007. The options that were in the previous models are still included in this one; the only difference is that it’s all updated. It features a 12.1 megapixel image sensor with a 6x optical zoom, great picture quality, manual exposure controls, a flip-out screen and increased ISO sensitivity of 1600. The camera eases a new photographer into taking good photographs, basically because of its 14 pre-programmed scene modes, full auto mode and a stitch assist option. According to a certain reviewer, the Canon PowerShot A650 IS proves that you don't need to invest in an SLR to get manual controls and large, detailed pictures. This is due to the fact that the 12-megapixel camera comes packed with manual exposure controls and other photographer-friendly features. Even though it’s a bit big, its substance makes it up. Like they say, don’t judge a camera by its size. Automatically designed for photo lovers who are perfectionists when it comes to taking photos and this versatile camera with exceptional creative control is for them. The DIGIC III image processor, advanced face detection, optical image stabilization, 21 shooting modes, and a 2.5“ Vari-Angle LCD display are all featured in this Canon PowerShot A650 IS. One of its users describes it as being a good product but not the best. Some buy it just for its 6x zoom, and Image Stabilization whereas some like it for its large LCD and the extra megapixels which come to very good use to crop the shots taken from a long distance. As quoted by CNET, the Canon PowerShot A650 IS proves that you don't need to invest in an SLR to get manual controls and large, detailed pictures.
