The PowerShot A3000 IS is a point and shoot digital camera from Canon. Announced at CES 2010 in Las Vegas, this camera represents an incremental upgrade to the PowerShot line. The A3000 IS features a 10 megapixel image sensor, a DIGIC III processor, 4x optical zoom and an integrated optical image stabilizer. These features enable clear, blur-free images to be taken by the average user. Those who don’t want to constantly adjust settings will likely make use of the Smart Auto with Scene Detection technology, which will apply the best settings automatically based on 18 different scene presets. To further make things easier on the novice photographer, Canon’s Easy mode will deactivate most of the buttons and remove icons from the screen. Photographs can be reviewed on the 2.7-inch LCD screen. The Canon PowerShot A3000 IS will be released in February, 2010.
