About Canon A2200

The compact and newly-redesigned PowerShot A2200 digital camera (Blue) proves that you really can have it all - in a color to match your personality! Gorgeous images are possible for any level photographer thanks to Smart AUTO, a system that detects what's going on in the scene, then automatically and intelligently selects proper settings for the camera based on 32 pre-defined shooting situations. Capture memories beautifully either as still images, or videos in incredibly realistic 720p HD. PowerShot A2200 puts powerful technology at your command by making it easy.

14.1 Megapixels provide rich detail. A 4x Wide Angle (28mm) Optical Zoom gives you more room to compose your shot. The camera is loaded with fun, useful features you'll love, like Discreet Mode that lets you shoot in restrictive situations by operating noise - and flash-free and Creative Filters for an easy way to add professional-looking artistry to your photography. The powerful Lithium-ion battery charges up quickly to keep the fun going and you'll get a big, clear look at what you're shooting with a, bright 2.7-inch LCD screen.

Semi-Satisfied: OK for the money.


I just needed a little camera to carry around that is not big and bulky, like my Canon EOS is. The A2200 was inexpensive, and fit the size I was looking for. The small size is wonderfully convenient, but I'm not really impressed with the photo quality. I've seen some smartphones produce clearer pictures. Of course, I'm still learning the controls, so I may eventually find this camera's sweet spot. As always, ADORAMA had quick delivery of the merchandise. Very good company.

Not Impressed


Disappointed with the auto setting. Pictures were too bright regardless of which setting I used. Thought the quality would be much much better.


Reliable Camera


I used this product casually, for family vacations and parties. The camera is great for someone that is not a professional photographer. It is easy to use and has enough settings to cover your basic needs. The only drawback is that the camera only comes in the color red and it doesn't always photograph well in low light. Other than that, it is a good and reliable camera.

This is an amazing camera! I just received it and am already impressed! Anyone that says, "This camera takes blurry pictures", needs to actually read how to use it. Yes, the camera is a little small, but if it were any bigger someone would complain how it was too big. I cannot wait to use it more!

Very Disappinted in my Camera


My Canon Power Shot A2200 was highly recommended to me by trhe clerk telling me it was an easy camera to use and a great camera. A camera she bought for her own grandmother to use. I thought I was buying a good product but instead I have a camera that sometimes it takes good pictures and other times they are horrrible. At my Granddaughter's birthday party I have some pictures that are good and some that are so blurry that i won't be able to use them in my scrapbook.. At my granddaughter's dance recital my camera took only pictures that were blurry so I have no pictures of that either. Pictures that I have taken outdoors were great and most of them not blurry but the indoors one are horrible. I am so disappointed and frustrated in this camera since I thought I was buying a camera that would last for a long time and would be able to take good pictures but instead I have a real lemon. I have read and re-read the book on the camera and asked the store where I purchased it for assistance but nothing has improved.

Good Value for price


Purchased this a week ago and found it very easy to use. Very intuitive for the controls, (of course I have a couple other Canon cameras). Although others stated the pictures seemed grainy, once sent to my PC they seemed very sharp, and detailed. Only complaint is with my big hands this seems incredibly small in size, it may get lost in the sofa cushions.

Questions about this item:

Cheryl W  how is this different from cameras of 5 years ago? I mean other than more megapixels
THOMAS K  No comparison. There are lots of menus that enable this little camera to do everything my pro SLR's do. Even a "fisheye" lens mode. For the price, you can't beat this one!
Cheryl W  Thank you for answering me !
Peter B  does it include memory card?
LYNDA K  No it does not.
