Exceptional lens quality

The PowerShot A2400 IS benefits from Canon’s class-leading lens technology. The 28 mm wide-angle lens allows you to fit more in the frame, which is perfect for group shots, whereas the 5x optical zoom range enables you to get up close and capture all the detail, even when photographing distant subjects.

Incredibly sharp images whatever the situation

The PowerShot A2400 IS also benefits from Canon’s Intelligent IS technology. Whether you’re shooting stills or movies, Intelligent IS automatically identifies the shooting situation and then selects the most appropriate type of optical image stabilization from 6 modes. For example, when tracking a moving object the camera will automatically select Panning IS which will make adjustments for vertical movement, ensuring that your subject is sharp and blur-free. However, when filming distant subjects with the zoom the camera will switch to Powered IS which provides a higher level of compensation for hand movement. This allows you to focus on framing the image you want, safe in the knowledge that the camera is working to eliminate as much camera shake as possible, even if you need to move with your scene.

High-quality LCD screen

The PowerShot A2400 IS features a fantastic 6.8 cm (2.7") LCD. This high quality 230k dot screen makes framing and reviewing images easy, even from difficult angles or in bright light.

Effortless shooting, superb results

When you're taking photographs, the only thing you want to think about is your subject, so Canon’s Smart Auto mode removes the worry of deciding which settings to select. It enables the camera to intelligently select the appropriate settings so you can concentrate on your subject.

In Smart Auto mode, Canon’s Advanced Scene Detection Technology automatically analyses shooting conditions – detecting people, distance, brightness, colour and movement information – then selects the perfect setting from 32 specially defined scenes. So whether you're photographing flowers, a captivating sunset or friends in the park you can be confident you're getting the perfect image.

Smart Auto is also more than just scene detection. It allows the camera to identify moving subjects to ensure the focus and exposure are always correct. For sharp close-ups the camera automatically switches to Macro mode and Smart Flash Exposure optimises exposure and flash controls to ensure your subject is perfectly lit whilst dark and light areas are accurately reproduced.

Additionally, you can switch to Smart Auto mode at any time with just one press of the Auto button. This means you can explore different modes and settings, safe in the knowledge that you can always jump straight back to the safety of Smart Auto mode in an instant, so you’ll never miss that crucial moment.

Help button

The PowerShot A2400 IS extremely easy to use, but for times when you need a little extra guidance there is an instant Help button. This provides one-click access to helpful information – it will guide you through the basic controls of the camera and explain more advanced features, such as ISO speed.

In many modes, the camera will even apply the settings from the stills mode you are currently, allowing you to capture movies with stunning creative effects such as Monochrome for traditional black and white scenes or Miniature Effect to transform ordinary scenes into miniature scale models.

    For me, the purchase of the Canon PowerShot A2400 IS Digital Camera - Pink (16.0 MP, 5x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD was a real should I/shouldn't I battle. I had always owned the same make of camera previously (not Canon) and wondered if I was doing the right thing changing to a different manufacture for the upgrade I wanted. I definitely made the right choice!

    The Canon A2400is is small, light and very easy to use. The quality of the photographs it takes is exceptional, and the video option is quick and simple to access and, as with the photographs, the quality is truly outstanding.

    The large capacity SD cards that are available to purchase mean that a tremendous amount of pictures and film footage can be recorded with minimal chance or running out of space, although I personally have opted for keeping a couple of spare cards handy so I can separate events for my own personal ease.

    The battery will last through a good day out and beyond with normal use, but again the battery itself is so small it is easy and hassle free to charge a spare and keep it handy.

    Overall this camera is ideal if you want something simple to use, compact, lightweight and multifunctional, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a camera that offers great value for money.

    I already have this camera and bought it for my granddaughter for her birthday. I bought it due the great photos it takes but also value for money. My granddaughter is 8 and thought of buying a child's camera but there was not much of a difference in price just in quality.

    Bought as a Christmas present for my 12 year old daughter. It is compact and easy to carry around. It has many different settings and effects and has kept her entertained. It has a good zoom for a small camera and takes a good photo.

    Bought this camera from Amazon during its' Black Friday event last year, to replace my water damaged Casio compact.

    Having now used the camera for some time now I have to give it a thumbs down in comparison to my old Casio camera.

    Just about every aspect of this camera ( apart from flash on or off), is auto.

    So no pre sets for different scenes.

    I recently took a shot which I would normally choose a backlight setting for, and it produced a good background with a grossly underexposed foreground subject. Hopeless, as there was no way for me to adjust or select a suitable setting to produce a good shot.

    I have also found, on several occasions, If you point and shoot too quickly, you end up with blurry / out of focus pics and even worse when videoing.

    It seems that if the movie clip starts off out of focus, then it never corrects itself, resulting in a worthless outcome throughout.

    I have now adapted my shootiong technique to discipline myself to press the buttons slowly and allow it time to settle / focus before starting a shoot a pic or a video clip. Even so I still end up with an occasional blur.

    In summary an inflexible product, and If this is typical of Cannon cameras, then it will be my last.

    Managed to purchase a new one of these for £54 from a major high street retailer. Very impressed! Image quality is really good for a cheap point and shoot and the IS helps with sharpness. I bought the pink version - as thought it was the prettiest colour! Black is very boring - all serious cameras are Black! This is a really fun camera- perfect for events, nights out, festivals.

    Beware that the video mode on the camera is pretty awful. HD my a*se. Very very noisy even in bright light conditions. Worse than my iphone camera.

    Not sure whether it was necessary for the sensor to be 16MP either - as they take up so much storage space - when my old canon 12MP super zoom takes better quality images.

    Still - a good fun attractive camera.
