  • Excerpt: What I like most about a good compact point & shoot camera is also what I consider to be about the only thing that separates the huge assortment of mediocre ones from the good ones in the first place: image quality. Canon has consistently come up with designs and technology which continue to keep it in the forefront of compact camera design, usability and image quality.

Canon Powershot A650 IS Review

Digital Camera Review
2 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Canon’s newly-introduced Powershot A650 IS becomes their self-described "new top-of-the line" A-series camera offering, and anyone who follows Canon knows they view the A-series as providing a lot of performance at a value price. For someone who wants/needs to shoot at 12+ MP with a camera by Canon, there are only five choices in the current lineup: 1Ds-Mk. III, 5D, G9, SD950 IS or the A650 IS.

  • Conclusion: The Canon Powershot A650 IS is a very smart digital camera. It has a good selection of features and picture quality is among the best you will find from a consumer, compact digital camera. I have really struggled to come up with any negative points about the camera. You will also find the build quality of the camera a step up from most other Powershot models. Recommended.
  • Pros: Picture quality - viewfinder - flip out and twist LCD screen - red eye correction tool
  • Cons: Skies can lose colour when the lens is zoomed in.
