Better than I thought it would be!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon Powershot A2200 14.1 MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Zoom (Black) (Camera)
I have my Powershot A2200 for about two weeks now. I was a little concerned about the mixed reviews but I thought I would take a chance. I have and love my Canon G10 but did not want to carry it everywhere with me. I needed a little camera to carry with me and not worry about. I purchased my Powershot A2200 for 129. and could not complain about that. I liked how you can move through the different modes quickly and I especially liked the live mode. I am an artist and it is very important for me to control color and contrast and I can easily do that in the live mode. I understand the problems some of the other reviews complained about especially the blurriness. I too had blurry photos when I first started using it. This camera has a learning curve - it is a very sensitive camera and you have to become familiar with it and choose the mode ( program, live , auto ) that is best for you. Also there are several options to control in the focus of the camera. I suggest you become familiar with it to improve your results. This is a good camera for someone like myself that is familiar with using cameras and want options for controlling images. If you just want to point and shoot and not think about it - this may not be the best choice. I am really impressed with the photos I have taken. I mainly use the live mode - it is a very flexible mode - shooting well in low museum light and even out of a fast moving car. Given what I received for this cost I am very pleased. I love my little light canon camera.

I so agree with all your comments here. Great little camera for the price. I love that I don't get blurry shots and can move it around with the person and get a great shot. There is some lag time after a few shots but can live with that. All in all, this suits my needs perfectly as it takes great photos. We take a lot of gravestone photos at very old cemeteries and this camera far exceeds the Sony and Nikon both that I had prior. Great camera for the price..
