Canon PowerShot A2000 IS Reviews

CNET reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“The good: Excellent photo quality for the money; 6x zoom; simple operation. The bad: Limited controls; slow performance. The bottom line: The Canon PowerShot A2000 IS is lean on features beyond its stabilized 6x zoom lens, but it takes great photos and is easy to use. ”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

LetsGoDigital reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“Despite the comments on the image quality of higher ISO values and the patience you need for flash photography, the road Canon is taking with the new Canon PowerShot A2000 IS is mainly successful. Some more focus on the image quality and Canon holds yet another camera that stands out. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET.UK reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“A2000 IS is sensible, practical and produces above-average pictures, but it’s not perfect and it’s a long way from exciting. ”
Rating: ★★★½☆

ImagingResource reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“A2000 IS is a very good performer. It captures good exposures with sharp details and accurate color under most average shooting conditions..A2000 IS is a very capable camera that’s a snap to use.”
Rating: N/A

DCI reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“A2000 IS has a couple of significant factors in its favor. It’s inexpensive ($230), has a good zoom ratio for a small point-and-shoot, and did well in our color scoring. On the other hand, there’s no manual control to speak of, it struggled in most of our other tests, and the lens is slow, particularly for handheld telephoto shooting in less-than-ideal light.”

DPInterface reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“The Canon PowerShot A2000 IS is definitely worth considering if you’re looking for a really capable, all rounder point-and-shoot camera”

DCRP reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“In conclusion, I like the PowerShot A2000 IS — it’s a good choice in the entry-level, midzoom category, and I can recommend it, as long as you’re not a big low light shooter.”
Rating: N/A

CameraLabs reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“Canon’s PowerShot A2000 IS is a good value compact with a surprisingly long zoom and effective stabilisation for the money. It’s easy to use, captures sharp, consumer-friendly images and powered by readily-available AA batteries, so you’ll rarely get caught short. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

DCR reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“The A2000 IS handled all outdoor image-making chores with aplomb and amazingly good results. Indoors and in low/dim lighting, the A2000 IS starts to show a few warts like blocked up shadow areas, burnt out highlight areas, and muddy loking images due to increased noise levels at ISO 400 and higher.”
Rating: N/A

DigicamReview reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
” Image quality is generally very good, and although noise is quite high compared to the competition, images are useable up to ISO400 and tend to maintain good detail. The camera’s screen is not up to the standard of other Canons though battery life is excellent. Overall this is an appealing camera offering value for money, and a number of features that should suit beginners and more advanced users. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“Video quality is good and runs smoothly, while the subject is kept in focus very well. While panning and using the full telephoto end of the zoom it is hard to keep the camera steady enough to avoid jerking when handheld, even with the O.I.S. turned on. ”

Cameras.uk reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“I like the colours the Powershot A2000 IS gives to its photographs. The colours are quite powerful, but they interact very well with the brightness in the photos. .. Overall I am very pleased with the photos I have taken. I would describe this camera as some way above average. ”
Rating: ★★★★½

PhotoReview reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“Video quality was good for the resolution range supported – as long as the lens remained at the wide setting. However, the sensor’s restricted dynamic range was also clearly evident in video clips, where highlights were frequently blown-out.”
Rating: ★★★★½

GoodGearGuide reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“The Canon PowerShot A2000 departs a bit from some of its predecessors in terms of features and design. It is nonetheless an attractive option for entry-level users looking for a no-fuss unit that takes high quality snaps and has a larger than normal zoom.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“the overall build quality and low-angle monitor may cause some disappointment. However the camera is extremely easy to use, the wide zoom range is very versatile and the performance and picture quality are well up to the high standard we’ve come to expect from Canon”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PhotographyBlog reviews the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS and writes;
“A2000 IS produced images of good quality during the review period. The A2000 IS dealt extremely well with chromatic aberrations, with limited purple fringing effects appearing only in high contrast situations. The pop-up flash worked well indoors, with no red-eye and adequate exposure.”
Rating: ★★★★☆
