Canon PowerShot A2100 IS Review


The Canon PowerShot A2100 IS is a good all-rounder. With a broad zoom range, Image Stabilisation and basic feature set, it's an ideal contender for the point and shoot entry level market. Though it does come at a little bit of a raised asking price and ? as much as this is consistent with Canon's recession-based price hikes ? it's worth shopping around for a better price. The A2100's macro mode is the shiniest gem of them all meaning that, realistically, you'll be able to shoot all manner of photos quite happily. Be that quirky close-ups, posed portraits or zoomed-in 200mm shots to pick out your subject. Perhaps the image quality drags its heels a little, but for everyday use the PowerShot A2100 IS, in general, ticks the boxes.
