CanonCanon PowerShot A2000 IS digital camera review : During the last weeks of the summer of 2009, Canon introduced several cameras. The compact camera series also contained a pair of PowerShot A models; the A1000 IS and the A2000 IS. The model we tested, the Canon PowerShot A2000, successor to the A720 IS camera, differentiates itself from the A-Series when it comes to its design, which features more obvious lines. The appearance of the camera has undergone a vast change, and the same applies to the functionality of this new PowerShot A digital camera.

Canon PowerShot A2000 IS review - Camera design
The body of the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS has changed a lot compared to its predecessor, the IXUS 720 IS. The camera has become somewhat more traditional in design; a little more square with straight lines and slightly curved edges. Most striking is the fact that the grip has disappeared, and I can imagine the discussions that must have taken place during designer meetings. I highly appreciated the handgrip of the PowerShot A series and it gave the camera a tad more cachet. Instead, the design now has its bulkiest side on the right for a better hand-fit. Resulting in a fine hand-fit, yet offering less grip compared to its predecessor.

Compact and simple to use, is in short what the A2000 IS aims for, and how Canon presents the camera. Even more than before, the emphasis seems to lie on user-friendliness. There are even three auto modes working fully automatically, making manual actions superfluous, step-by-step, at which the last setting is fully automatic even deactivating the most basic buttons. And the thought behind this is not so strange at all; indeed, just press and there you go: your picture is ready.

What has remained is the 6x optical zoom combined with an image stabilization system. And like its competitors, Canon is unable to resist equipping this newcomer with a higher amount of pixels. For the PowerShot A2000 IS, it means an increase from the 8 Megapixels offered by its predecessor (A720 IS), to 10 Megapixels. Whether the revitalization of the PowerShot works as well in practice as its predecessors, can be read in the following Canon PowerShot A2000 IS review.
