About - Canon A2600 (Red)

The Powershot A2600 is a 16-megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom and has a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28mm-140mm. It has a 3-inch LCD (230,000 pixels).

Because of its small size, we consider this model a subcompact.

The Powershot A2600 stores photos and video on SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. It captures images as JPG files at a top resolution of 4608 x 3456 and HD-resolution video as MOV files at a top resolution of 1280 x 720.

Like most digital cameras, this model comes with a proprietary rechargeable battery.

The image stabilization system for this camera is optical.

The Powershot A2600 measures 3.8 inches wide by 2.2 inches high by 0.8 inches deep, and weighs 5 ounces (with battery, memory card, and strap).

About This Brand

Canon is the market leader in point-and-shoots, with an extensive line of models, which are known as PowerShots. Its budget line, the A series, is made up of compacts and subcompacts.  Canon's subcompacts are known as SD ELPHs. Its SX-series are mostly super zooms and come in various sizes and include smaller or larger feature sets. Canon has the D-series compact, which it claims are waterproof and shockproof. Its high-end series, the S and G lines, include special modes and manual features, such as the ability to shoot RAW files and to focus manually. The EOS Rebel series helped to define budget SLRs. Other SLRs include a host of pro and more-advanced consumer models, including models that have very large, full-frame sensors. Canon also offers a wider selection of lenses than most brands.
