I use this product to take pictures of my kitchen creations and general travels. It is the perfect camera for someone who wants professional looking pictures with minimal cost and effort. Prior to purchasing this Canon (which a camera-guru friend recommended, I had two Nikons which were similarly priced). Canon has exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this camera to anyone who wants a camera for general use.

    doesn't have a sports mode or continuous shooting mode. the few seconds it takes to take the picture makes you miss the shoot. zoom is a little hard to opperate quickly due to design.

        Comments about PowerShot A2300 Digital Camera (Black):

        I use this product as a general point and shoot camera, one that I can teach my sons the basics of digital photography. I intend to send my youngest son with it on his trip to the east coast this summer. The size makes it a camera that is easy to slip in a pocket, and the general functionality is easy enough to use as an entry level camera. Only set backs so far that I have seen is that the image quality on the viewing screen is pretty grainy in the preview mode. When reviewing the shot the image is substantially clearer. Also, I find that for the MPs, the images are a bit grainy, but not sure if that is the cameras fault yet, or if it is in the way it is set up. Overall I would recommend this to others as a solid point and shoot!

          Using this camera at a nature center to take photos of educational programs. Recently been taking photos of students snowshoeing, handles the cold well. Older camera would freeze up and batteries would die, not this one it does a great job. Zoom works well in photographing wildlife seen on hikes. Would recommend this camera with the package with battery and SD chip.

            I was looking for a small point and shoot, and this definitely exceeded my expectations. The pictures are crystal clear, even with my shaky hands. Couldn't be happier. The only downfall is the slow shutter, but I don't have another camera to compare it to.

                  I bought this camera for my wife who often times wanted to take a quick picture or capture video of our daughter doing something silly. I own a DSLR and she found that it was a little time consuming to change my settings and focus the camera etc and she would miss the moment too often. So I did some quick research and found this Powershot to be a perfect pocket camera to catch those second long moments. It is super easy to use and the movie button available right away makes it super easy to record. She loves the simplicity of it, as well as the various modes for different shots. With high mega pixels and the unbeatable price it fit our needs. I also liked the rechargeable battery as opposed to using AA's or AAA's. My two other camera's are Canon's so we stuck with what we feel works best. Overall great choice for a simple, diverse, and powerful point and shoot.
