Canon PowerShot A2100 IS prices and specs
The PowerShot A2100 IS was produced on Feb 18, 2009 and is sold in USA for 219.99.
The PowerShot A2100 IS belongs to the category of point and shoot cameras. Its main advantage is a very small size: the photographer can take it anywhere with himself easily. The Canon PowerShot A2100 IS is equipped with various automatic modes but you won't get photos of the same great quality in comparison to large sensor compact cameras.
The PowerShot A2100 IS can take pictures at 12 megapixels max resolution. But for better image quality the more important thing is a sensor size. This camera has a 1/2.3' (6.17 x 4.55 mm) sensor which means that the camera will shoot pictures with not so high quality as cameras with bigger sensors but instead it is smaller. And if you want to capture pictures of the best quality check Nikon D4S.
The Canon PowerShot A2100 IS has max shutter speed of 1/1600 sec. It is not very fast shutter speed but anyway the owner of the camera will manage to capture pictures of moving people. The PowerShot A2100 IS can even shoot videos but the max resolution is not very high - 640 x 480 (30 fps).
The lens is fixed and you won't be able to change it. The lens has average 6x optical zoom.
