Canon PowerShot A3100 IS

Many who would like to make the transition from a point and shoot analogue camera to a digital one of the same kind back out when they think they would have to pay a very high price for it. What they do not know is that there is a whole range of affordable and easy to use compact cameras meant especially for them. After all, why should the average consumer pay too high a price for keeping memories which cost a zillion times more than the price of the camera? Thus, Canon gives us the PowerShot A3100 IS, which is an easy to use and affordable 12.1mp and 4x optical zoom camera.

Design and Functioning

Despite its budget price-tag, the Powershot A3100 IS is a well-made and compact digital camera with a serious matt textured plastic body and excellent overall finish. This camera is available in colours like Navy Blue, Devil’s Red and Metallic Silver. Its Smart Auto also in¬cludes i-Contrast technology, which analyses images to deliver perfect exposure, adding brightness and detail to darker sections without blowing out correctly-exposed areas. It also incorporates the new Super Vivid mode, which injects new life into subjects, adding colour to images to provide a dramatic, enriched effect. The camera also features the new Poster Effect mode, which reduces the number of colours to create retro-looking, poster-style images. Its Smart Flash Exposure improves natural and ambient lighting in every shot, intelligently adjusting flash exposure to suit the subject and the shooting conditions. It also features the smart FaceSelf-Timer feature, which allows the photographer to be included in group photos, only taking the shot when an extra face has entered the frame. This camera is compatible with a wide range of memory cards from SD, SDHC, SDXC, MMC, MMCplus and HC MMCplus cards.
