Canon PowerShot A2400 IS review

 

When it comes to entry-level point-and-shoots, Canon's A-series PowerShots consistently excel in picture quality. That certainly holds true for the 16-megapixel A2400 IS and A2300.

The Canon PowerShot A2400 IS and PowerShot A2300 have very good picture quality for their class and are loaded with effects and filters.

The cameras' flat buttons and cramped layout may make use difficult for some and shooting performance is slow, particularly shot-to-shot. The lenses require a lot of light or high ISOs when zoomed in. Battery life is short.

The entry-level Canon PowerShot A2400 IS and its IS-less linemate the A2300 are simple cameras with nice picture quality for casual snapshooters, but the price difference isn't worth sacrificing the image stabilization.

Canon Powershot A3200 IS81/100

Picture quality, value for money

Slow responses with flash

The Canon Powershot A2400 IS gives you a clear choice between a camera that has the edge when it comes to picture quality and ones with the latest bells and whistles. Picture quality is likely to be hard to beat at this price point.

Canon PowerShot A2400 IS

 

The Canon PowerShot A2400 IS is a well-built, inexpensive point-and-shoot camera that features an sharp, optically stabilized lens. So-so performance at higher ISOs and limited support for video capture is part of the bargain, though.

Inexpensive. Sharp, optically stabilized lens. Speedy performance.

Noisy images at high ISOs. Limited video support.

Performance and Conclusions The A2400 isn't exactly a slow poke, but it's not the fastest gun in the Wild West either. It takes 2.4 seconds to start up and take a photo, can snap a shot every 1.4 seconds in continuous drive mode, and records a 0.3...

Canon is gradually refreshing its PowerShot and IXUS series of digital cameras. Depending on the models, the updates include better optics, inclusion of image stabilization, new DIGIC V image processor, Full HD video recording, Wi-Fi connectivity,...

The Canon PowerShot A2400 IS is priced at 7,995 and its younger sibling without image stabilization, the A2300 costs 1,000 less. Unless you’re restricted by budget, it’s wiser to go in for the A2400 IS because image stabilization yields steady...

Canon A2400 IS

 

Portable point-and-shoot with limited controls but surprisingly strong performance.

Slim and portable; Excellent color accuracy

Very annoying rear control panel; Destructive noise reduction

For a little over a hundred and fifty bucks, you could do a lot worse than the Canon PowerShot A2400 IS. Whether a manufacturer is designing an entry-level point-and-shoot like this one, or a high-end professional grade DSLR, we appreciate attention to...
