Canon PowerShot A650 IS Reviews

PopPhoto reviews the Canon Powershot A650 IS and writes;
“shooting with the Canon A650 IS was a very pleasant experience. Its lack of RAW support and lower image quality at ISO 400 and above are redeemed by optical image stabilization which helps to keep the camera in the lower ISOs, excellent outdoor performance…”

GoodGearGuide reviews the Canon Powershot A650 IS and writes;
“It may be big, but if you’re looking for a high-end advanced camera with all the bells and whistles that captures brilliant pictures the Canon PowerShot A650 IS is a great choice.”
Rating: ★★★★☆ reviews the Canon Powershot A650 IS and writes;
“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”
Rating: ★★★★☆

ImagingResource reviews the Canon Powershot A650 IS and writes;
“The noise at ISO 200 is disturbing. That boils down to the 12.1 megapixel sensor. Still, you have to consider that this is a 12-megapixel camera, and the printed results pretty much guarantee excellence up to ISO 400 at 8×10 (the practical maximum most people can print at home, and good quality in the ISO 800 to 1,600″

DigitalCameraInfo reviews the Canon Powershot A650 IS and writes;
“In terms of image quality, the A650 IS sports Canon’s traditionally excellent color and white balance accuracy but suffers from high noise levels and poor dynamic range above ISO 100. ”
Rating: N/A

ePhotozine reviews the Canon Powershot A650 IS and writes;
“Without that in mind, the camera is a very capable one giving good results if you are willing to wait for them because of the start up time. If you are wanting a camera that can do what an SLR can do but the idea of the S5 scares you, then take a look at this.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

DCR reviews the Canon Powershot A650 IS and writes;
“The 6X Canon zoom lens was quite uniformly sharp across the frame at both wide and telephoto ends, with some slight softness in the corners… Overall, very good lens performance. ”
Rating: N/A

PhotoReview reviews the Canon Powershot A650 IS and writes;
” Photographs taken with the test camera were bright and colourful with plenty of fine detail, an above-average dynamic range and well controlled saturation. However, Imatest showed resolution to be below expectations but edge-to-edge sharpness was generally good. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET reviews the Canon Powershot A650 IS and writes;
” The bottom line: Performance issues aside, the Canon PowerShot A650 IS combines large, good-looking photos and a generous feature set into a fine midrange shooter. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆
