Canon PowerShot A2400 IS Reviews

Digitalcamerainfo reviews the Canon PowerShot A2400 IS and writes;
“This little camera’s performance is quite excellent in some ways. Color accuracy is particularly impressive, and easily exceeds the results of some cameras at many times the price point. Resolution, while marred by some pretty obvious chromatic aberration, is above average, and resulted in some very detailed, lifelike sample photos.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

PCMAG reviews the Canon PowerShot A2400 IS and writes;
“I used Imatest to measure the sharpness of the A2400’s photos and found the results to be good, but not off the charts. It scored 1,907 lines per picture height on the sharpness test, which is higher than the 1,800 line mark that we used to classify an image as acceptably sharp.”

Canon PowerShot A2400 IS User Reviews

Not too shabby
“My favorite part of this camera is that when working with difficult “subjects”, which in my case happened to be my rambunctious boxer/pit 2 2/12 year old dog, the moment you close on the shutter release, it captures exactly what you were intending. So, no more blurry head moves and smiles that you did not catch in time. BRILLIANT.” – By MeredithNCSU girl

Good camera for those that just want to take basic photos
“The A2400 has satisfied my needs. It is great for taking photographs indoors as well as outside. My photography mainly focuses on taking shots of my son and the products I review (I am a blogger), and the many different settings allow my photos to be more fun and unique than before.” – By Southern Girl

Love it
“I usually use my Canon EOS 60D, but I wanted a small camera to just take along to have a quality camera with me, that’s not too heavy and bulky. The image quality is great. I love all the gimmicky features, some of which I used to create with Photoshop later, thus it saves me time.. Overall I love it and the images and videos are excellent!” – By Shiala

Best Camera in This Price Range
“This camera has all the features I was looking for at a great price. I purchased it for my 89 year old father so was looking for a camera easy to use that had image stabilization. Dad loves it — He can use it in auto mode and not have to deal with the more complicated features that are available. The image stabilization is a real boon, he doesn’t have to worry about holding the camera still.” – By lksj

Awesome camera
“It’s great at taking pictures that come out crisp and clear. There are also a couple different effects which are really fun and cool. Plus some of the effects (like “vivid”) make some pictures come out better.” – By D. Veith
