Canon Digital Camera Review

While researching the Canon digital camera review, I realized Canon has reduced its number of models. Canon, a world leader in analog cameras, is also a prolific digital camera builder. While it once had 37 different models on the market, they have recently pulled back to a more manageable 13.

Canon PowerShot A300

Canon PowerShot A300

Canon PowerShot A300 3.2MPCanon offers an entry-level digital camera with a street price of around $199. Dubbed the “PowerShot AV300”, it offers many of the features found in higher-end cameras, such as full motion video which makes videos up to 3 minutes long. Its 3.2-megapixel resolution produces images that can me printed or sent via email. Although it has a 5.1x digital zoom, instead of the more desirable optical zoom, it still provides impressive performance and includes a built-in macro setting for getting up close and personal with bugs, flowers, and other close-range photography subjects. The multiple picture effects let you add your own creative touches to your photos. Then included full motion movie mode makes videos up to 3 minutes.

Canon PowerShot A70

Canon PowerShot A70 3.34MPThe PowerShot A70, selling for around $299, is the lowest priced family member to offer an optical zoom lens plus these additional features: A 3.2 digital zoom, enhanced movie mode with sound, and a handy direct print mode that hooks up directly to a Canon card photo printer or a Bubble Jet direct printer so you can print your images without downloading to a PC. This is a very nice 3.2 megapixel camera that’s perfect for all types of home photo uses.

Canon PowerShot S50

Canon PowerShot S50 5.0MPStepping up to 5.0 megapixels, with optical zoom, will cost you in the neighborhood of $499 for the Power Shot S50. Other than the enhanced resolution inherent in 5.0 megapixels, it is feature-for-feature identical to its lower priced cousins the S40 and S30 with optical zoom.

Canon Digital Rebel 6.3 SLR

Canon EOS 300D 6.3MPNo Canon digital camera review would be complete if we didn’t look at the high end. It’s going to cost you nearly $1000 to get your hands on the Canon Digital Rebel 6.3-megapixel digital SLR camera, but it sure is worth the price.

Its 6.3-megapixels of resolution provide 35mm quality without film or developing costs. A lot of users compare the look, feel, and flexibility of this Camera to Canon’s venerable AE1 analog camera. Speaking of flexibility, the Digital Rebel uses any Canon EF EOS lens on the market and also uses the new EFS lenses as well. The 7-point wide-area auto focus ensures precise images even when the subject is off-center, and its incredibly fast speed captures clear images of even the most dynamic subjects. Plus, editing and printing are a breeze with direct print capability and included software.

Canon EOS-10D

Canon EOS-10D

Canon EOS-10D 6.3MPWith an MSRP of $1,999 US, and a street price hovering around $1499 US, the Canon EOS-10D might just be one of the most expensive nonprofessional’s digital camera on the market. If you think that $1499 is a bit too much to spend on a camera, then you definitely don’t want to know about the EOS-1D.

Weighing in at a hefty MSRP of $6500 US, and a street price only slightly less, you’ve got to have a serious affair with photography going on in order to justify this puppy. Of course, everything that the EOS-10D, the EOS-1D can do better. Only you know if it’s worth the money to you.

This Canon digital camera review shows It’s obvious that Canon has the market covered from the high priced, pro models, to a really decent camera for the kids for under $200. Canon’s nationwide service centers, and their quality customer service attitude, are two more reasons why you can’t go wrong choosing a Canon.
