The Canon PowerShot A2500 compact digital camera features highly advance imaging technology with loads of fun, designed for easy use. The 16 MP, ½.3” CCD sensor and Canon Digic 4 image processor delivers natural color and fortune of detail even to the enlarged version of the pictures. The 5x optical zoom and 28mm wide-angle lens paired with Digital image stabilizer captures everything from close-up shots to stunning landscapes within the range. It has about 32 predefined shooting settings to automatically choose from once the Smart AUTO recognition of the scene is done. Reminiscences can be re-lived several times by pressing dedicated movie button to view the recorded 720p HD videos in stereo sound. It also has creative scene modes like fisheye effect, Toy camera effect and Monochrome effect for dramatic videos. The ECO mode reduces the power consumption to minimal for longer duration of shooting. The camera is ideal for beginners too as it has a help button in the exteriors of the camera to bring down the help menu in the LCD whenever it is required.
It’s a neat looking one that delivers crisp images. It is user-friendly, fairly sturdy and portable. The colors and resolution are vivid and real. The menu is comprehensible and zoom is terrific. It clicks pretty good pictures both in the dark and in the bright sunlit outdoors. It has tons of artsy functions and is ultimate choice for Point and Shoot. The on/off button is not as tiny as seen in competitor cameras and comes with a rechargeable battery charger and a wrist string. All this for the given price is an exceptional deal.
The flaws are that it does not come with a USB cable or memory card. The speed of the shutter is comparatively slow and at times the display screen makes the pictures look crappy until put into a computer or any other display monitor. The focus is quiet sensitive to movement and lacks timer for group photos. For some it stopped working after a 3 weeks/month or simply never operated the way it should have. Few cameras gave out grainy pictures mostly or pictures with lines on them. The photos taken from a distance in low lighting was not as convincing for few photographers. There were also incidents where the pics would always come out blurred regardless if the target is still or moving.
Generally, it is one of the fast moving cameras and does its job pretty neatly and for the price it’s a great deal !
