The PowerShot A3100 IS is a point and shoot digital camera from Canon. Announced at CES 2010 in Las Vegas, this camera is the higher-end version of Canon’s similar PowerShot A3000 IS. The A3100 IS features a 12 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. Due to the higher megapixel count, users will get higher resolution shots with this camera. 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 A3100 IS will be released in February, 2010.
