No image stabilizer

By

from Northern California  -  Casual Photographer

This camera was supposed to replace my late PowerShot A2400 IS, which, on sale from Adorama, was one of my best purchases. The A2400 IS offered a compact size, good image quality, wide-angle lens, and long battery life. The best feature was a dedicated button to start video capture, which avoided going down into menus to switch between video and still modes. The A2400 IS was also a tough little camera and took a lot of abuse (including my daughter throwing down onto a concrete driveway) until it got soaked in water from my daughter's sippy cup. The A2600 is very much the same camera as the A2400 IS, but with a larger LCD screen (the resolution appears to be the same) and no image stabilizer. I didn't realize the A2600 had no IS until I received and examined the camera. I wanted the image stabilizer because I take a lot of photos indoors, so I returned the A2600 and bought another A2400 IS refurbished from Canon. If IS is not a concern, then the A2600 should be a good camera.
