First Look: Canon PowerShot A2400 IS and the A2300

1:13 /

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.

There I'm Josh Goldman senior editor with CNET and this is a look at the Canon PowerShot a 2400 IS and the -- 2300. Both are sixteen megapixel entry level point and -- with this same twenty millimeter lens with a five X zoom. And two point seven inch LCDs on back. They have the same flat buttons that can be tricky to press and the same shooting modes including Canon's effects options. And both records 720 Ph.D. movies push of a button. They both produce nice photos and have the same -- shooting performance. What is different is that little IS in the model name the PowerShot a 2400 IS has optical image stabilization. -- -- -- 300 does not. With just ten bucks separating the two I strongly recommend spending the extra money to get -- a 2400. If you're looking for a simple pocket camera for casual snapshots. I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Canon PowerShot a 2400 INS and V any. Well let's just forget about.
