Canon PowerShot A75


Canon PowerShot A75

Category: Beginner Amateur

Following hard on the steps of the hugely popular PowerShot A70 comes the Canon PowerShot A75. The PowerShot A75 improves on the A70 in subtle body design and controls arrangement, as well as added functionality. Just like the A70 was before it, the PowerShot A75 is the perfect digital camera for someone who is not sure which camera to buy. It is feature-packed, yet is easy to use. Set it on Auto and let the Canon optics and electronics do the rest. Want to make sure that the camera grows with you as you learn more about photography? The A75 has Shutter-Priority, Aperture-Priority, 12 scene modes, and full Manual mode for total creative control.

Maximum aperture is a standard F2.8 and shutter speed ranges from 15-1/2,000 sec., permitting capturing night scenes as well as freezing fast action shots. The 105mm equivalent focal length is perfect for portrait photography: the 3x optical zoom allows you to stand back and still fill the frame with a person's face. Or, come in as close as 2 in. to your subject for real close macro shots. Plus, shoot expansive panorama shots using the Stitch-Assist feature.

Improvements over the A70:

  • Canon has added six "Special Scene Modes" to its previous six Programmed Image Control Zone, bringing the total scene modes (our generic term for one-touch exposure setting) to twelve.
  • Another welcome addition is the dedicated Print/Share button that allows you to print directly to any PictBridge-compliant printer at the touch of a button.
  • The LCD monitor is now larger and has more resolution (1.8 in. at 110K vs. 1.5 in. at 78K).
  • The 5-point AiAF system has been upgraded to a 9-point AiAF system.
  • You can now display the histogram of an image.
  • Approximately 15 g have also been shaved off the camera's weight.

The Canon PowerShot A75 is our recommended entry level digital camera for someone just starting out in photography. Not only can you immediately start using it out of the box as an automatic point-and-shoot digital camera, but it is feature-packed and will grow with you as you learn more about photography.
