What I noticed:

  • No viewfinder (bad)
  • No manual mode (bad)
  • Hi-res LCD (good)
  • AA batteries (good)
  • Macro .39" (good)
  • 30 fps video (good)

No AV mode!
No TV mode!

It's like a SD model but uses AA's!


I got stuff for taking pictures. :o When things are unclear - It's time to refocus. :rolleyes:

Do you mean 'large' LCD? Resolution-wise, it's the same old 230k pixels. As for 30fps video, it's the norm these days. I had hoped for XGA @ 30fps, but it's still VGA for the A2000. VGA LP is useful though.

I meant compared to the a1000is:

2.5-inch TFT color LCD
LCD Pixels
Approx. 115,000 pixels

Hey, I heard that since DSLRs are doing video, the new Powershots will actually take real photos!!..

:p Sorry, I could not resist.

(And seriously, when I did check out the link, I was surprised to see the design on the new camera, it looked a bit clunky, for the latest slim-slash-blocky type cameras).

What were they thinking? They replaced the A720 with something that's nothing like it's predecessor and it's not like A720's abound anymore either. No viewfinder, lacking certain modes, design is a bit bulkier IMO...Canon did odd here.

I like the idea of 2 AA's but how's the 2000 do in terms of battery life compared to say the older cams that take 4 AA's, like the old Canon A80? Also shutter lag - the old cams were pretty slow (up a second or more) on some shots.

Judging by the lack of responses Canon should realize that no one is interested in this camera. It doesn't even deserve to be called an "A" series because it lacks the trademark handgrip and manual control.
It is a pathetic replacement for the A720IS.

Well,I have one.

Some of the best images I've taken with a compact to date (and I've had a few in my time, including ones with manual control)

I also find it very easy to hold.

Yes, Its a point and shoot, but It does what it says on the tin very well.

I find Manual control on a compact is so limited anyway.

.

Having found this 3-year-old post, I have to agree even today that the A2000 has one of the sharpest lenses I've found on a Canon P&S -- better than the A720, S90 or Elph 300.

Why is Canon so hesitant to include m, av and tv? It should be standard on every single camera they sell.


Thank you. bw!
