See what we think of the Canon PowerShot A3200 IS in our What Digital Camera review
|Pros:||Optical image stabilisation, nice, well-made design|
|Cons:||Zoom coverage not as wide as zoom|
The Powershot A3200 sports a 14.1MP chip and has a 5x optical zoom lens with a coverage of 28-140mm. There's also an optical lens-shift stabiliser to counteract camera shake. The well-finished orange colour of our review model works well plus other colours are available to suit all tastes.
There is a dial on the top for quick access to settings without the need to go through the menus, while the interface is simple to use, with a helpful guide to explain settings.
‘Live View Control' allows users to adjust light, saturation and colour temperature while framing the image - making it great for users looking to get more hands-on, while there are a host of filters as well.
Overall, the A3200 IS produces nice images, delivering consistent, well-exposed shots, with image noise only becoming a problem above ISO 800. There are a lot of nice features to experiment with, while menus are intuitive and easy to use.
