Imaging Resource rating

5.0 out of 5.0

The Canon PowerShot A2100 IS replaces the previous A2000 model in the company's lineup, and is based around a 1/2.3" 12.1 megapixel CCD image sensor, DIGIC 4 image processor, and a Canon-branded 6x optical zoom lens. The A2100 IS's lens offers focal lengths ranging from 36 to 216mm equivalents, and features true optical image stabilization. Maximum aperture varies from f/3.2 to f/5.9 across the zoom range, and macro focusing is possible to just one centimeter.

There's no true optical viewfinder, with the Canon A2100 IS instead offering only a 3.0" LCD display with 230,000 dots of resolution. The maximum image dimensions are 4,000 x 3,000 pixels, and 30 frames-per-second VGA (640 x 480) movie recording is also possible with the Canon A2100. Sensitivity ordinarily ranges from ISO 80 to ISO 1,600 equivalents, and can be extended to ISO 3,200 equivalent in a high sensitivity scene mode. A built-in flash strobe is rated as good to 11.5 feet (3.5 meters) at wide angle, and 6.6 feet (2 meters) at telephoto. Images and movies are stored on SD cards, and the Canon PowerShot A2100 draws power from two AA batteries.

Available in a black body color only, the Canon A2100IS ships from early April with pricing of $250.
