Cameralabs reviews the Canon PowerShot A2300 and writes;
“The newly designed control layout makes it easier than ever to switch modes and the on screen help system with its dedicated button makes this the easiest of point-and-shoot models to find your way around. Add Live view controls and creative effects and it adds up to a camera that’s not only easy to use, but a lot of fun.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET reviews the Canon PowerShot A2300 and writes;
“As with most compact cameras, the A2400 IS’ photo quality noticeably drops off at higher ISOs, so getting the best pictures really depends on how much light you have — the more, the better. Fine detail and sharpness are very good up to ISO 200 (though a little sharpening with photo-editing software improves things).”
Rating: ★★★☆☆
