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.
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.

For moments that are best caught on video, the PowerShot A2400 IS offers the capability to record high-quality HD movies at 720p. Plus, a dedicated Movie Record button allows you to start filming instantly so you never miss a moment of the action. 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.
The PowerShot A2400 IS compatible with a range of accessories including a stylish soft case (DCC-510), a high-power external flash unit (HF-DC2), an AC adapter kit (ACK-DC90) and a spare battery (NB-11L).
Top customer reviews
The 28mm wide angle and 5x optical zoom lens gives a good range of field, the 16 mega pixel sensor gives it a great resolution and the Intelligent Sensor looks after the settings for a wide range of situations. It functions in full Auto mode or you can adjust various setting yourself. Although it's not a top of the range camera and I suspect it may be an outgoing model (which is why the price has dropped to £69), all in all it is a very good camera for everyday use.
Great choic of camera for pulling out and snapping the memorable moment.
I had see this camera and done some research and it appeared on Amazon's 'Black Friday' deals so snapped it up.
The camera is lovely and compact, I was wondering how they managed to get a 5x zoom in because of the slimness of the unit! The image quality is very good, and unlike previous point and shoots I have owned I have left the digital zoom on as with 16 million pixels I'm not fussed if I use the extra zoom. The video recording is very good - 720p HD video gives a decent quality video.
Some other reviewers have highlighted issues over the perceived lack of functions on the camera - though I would have to disagree because if you want full control you would surely buy a more expensive camera?
Overall, I am impressed with the camera, and finally my old olympus can go to the camera graveyard!
I researched for a long time budget compact digital cameras so either I got a dud, or you have to take most of the reviews on here with an even greater pinch of salt than I already do.
What I'm disappointed with is the quality of the shots which this camera takes - I have had Canons before and like the brand but using mine as a "point and click" camera results in very average quality images, even at the highest resolution settings.
With tweaking and not using "auto" mode I get better results. I have found it takes macro shots better than general landscape pictures of fields, houses etc.
There are some quick function modes for taking fisheye lens effect shots, blurred edges etc which are surprisingly good.
For this price range I do realise you can't expect a Leica.
I have given this 3 stars as I am still toying with sending it back but need to counter all the other wonderful reviews except 1 (I think) which say it takes excellent photos. However for the price I will most likely keep it as it is very compact so good for travelling - certainly not a worry to carry around in the pub or leave in a hotel room. It will easily fit in a shirt or jeans pocket, it's that small.
Overall I would advise paying a bit more for something better if you like to view high detail and crisp digital photos.
For anyone looking to get a case fro this camera I got - Case4Life Small Hard digital Camera carry case for Canon Powershot ...
It is a hard case which will protect the camera but it is by no means a snug fit so rattles around a fair bit.
The SDHC card I got which works fine is the SANDISK 8 GB Secure Digital SDHC Card - Frustration Free Packaging. But that looks out of stock as I type.
