Excellent photo quality for the money; 6x zoom; simple operation.
Limited controls; slow performance.
The Canon PowerShot A2000 IS is lean on features beyond its stabilized 6x zoom lens, but it takes great photos and is easy to use.

I have a few cameras of different types and brands and wanted one just for playing around when I travel and visit the G-Kids. This is so simple to use that you don't miss what is going on aroumd you while you are shooting snapshots. The picture quality is wonderful and the camera is light and easy to stick in your pocket if need be. I have the EOS T1i and love it, and sd750 Canon which is nice but too small for my needs but does take great pics, and I use my Fujifilm S1000fd quite a lot. All in all this A2000 is as good picture wise as the others excluding the Eos but the best by far of all for simply taking great pics of anything you desire wether inside or out. I do read the reviews on all the cameras I am interested in and see the ratings. This Camera far exceeds what I have read on review sites. Canon, You have a winner here..
I was looking for an inexpensive easy to use camera for close-ups.
For my Web-site, I wanted to take close-ups of the Labels so they could be read
Also, for Ebay I sell items that have tags like motors that have small print for the specifications. I had a Kodak Easy Share 10 MP which was fine for whole item shots a foot or two away, but blurry on close-ups under say 6"-8". My brother was getting into Ebay and lucked upon a Canon Power Shot A590 8 MP. He said it was cheap and took great cl;ose-ups and all pictures. The A590 got excellent reviews for all pics and especially close-ups. I actually couldn't buy one- sold out. But, this was a predecessor and now the Canon Power Shot A2000 was the upgrade and it was the same close-up technology but with 10 MP, so a little better resolution. I bought that new on Ebay and it's great. I can do detail shots within 1 cm less than an inch and it's clear. The labels can be read Title and ingredients. Amazing. Actually, too good in some cases as every tiny flaw is seen in your item. The software is pretty good, I'm a little weak on the transfer of images anyway, but they are categorized by date. It has limited Photoshop, so you would want a separate Adobe or whatever. The battery door and cable door are flimsey, but holding up. I would highly recommend it for Ebay sellers for posting their photos in the listing. I strongly recommend it for Point and Shoot Compact Inexpensive Digital camera. Thanks Steve
I bought the A2000 as a backup for my A720 and a hand-me-down for my son. It works very well in all respects: fast acting, great picture quality, compact size and bright view screen. However, as bright as it is, the screen is hard to see when shooting outside in bright light--as are all of the screen view only cameras. That's why I'll continue to use my A720 model, it has a viewing window which allows me to frame outdoor pictures when the light is too bright to see the image on the LCD screen. The A2000 makes beautiful pictures and has fast focus and shoot performance, is easy to use and compact.
I bought a new Canon PowerShot SX10 IS about 6 months ago and I think it is the best camera I could have bought for the job I was going do. My wife thinks it to big and complicated for her. I looked at all the auctions of all the Point and Shoot cameras that was available. I wanted to get one that had the the largest display (3"),the largest Zoom (6 to one),uses AA batteries and size. The Camera that fills this requirement the best is the PowerShot AS2000 IS. This camera has the same operation programs as my SX10 IS. That made it very easy for my wife to operate. All in all I would would give the camera an excellent rating. Good purchase.
The camera is excellent, but it is beyond my skills so far. I had a Kodak which took very good pictures, but did not have the zoom capability and did not illuminate inside buildings very well. I am just learning how to use the Canon and hope with practice I will be able to do more, but so far it has much more than I will ever need. I think a more basic camera might have been better for me. Time will tell. If you are a camera savvy person, this would be good for you.
