User-friendly 10.0 Megapixel camera
With its slim, compact build and intuitive design, the PowerShot A2000 IS lets anyone take great pictures on the go. A resolution of 10 megapixels lets you experiment with creative cropping, or create stunning, poster size prints.

6x optical zoom with optical IS
A powerful 6x optical zoom lets you bring distant scenes up close. The addition of Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer counteracts the effects of camera shake – keeping your pictures sharp throughout the zoom range.

Shooting Modes & My Colors
A handy mode dial gives you fingertip access to 17 shooting modes. These include Easy mode, for extra-simple point-and-shoot operation, and a dedicated Sunset mode. My Colors filter effects, such as black and white, can be added during shooting.

A Canon DIGIC III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction for sharper, clearer images. iSAPS technology uses shooting scene data to optimise camera settings even before a shot is taken.

Great people shots
A suite of Face Detection technologies detects up to nine faces in a shot and adjusts focus, exposure, flash settings and white balance – for optimal results with natural-looking skin tones. Face Select & Track lets you choose and track your primary subject, so you never lose a special face in the crowd.

Auto Red Eye Correction
Remove the ‘red-eye’ effect caused by flash, fast and accurately. Get instant, automatic red-eye correction immediately after your shot is taken – or choose between manual or automatic correction in playback.

No more blur
A combination of Canon technologies makes great, blur-free photos easy. Activated in High ISO Auto, Motion Detection Technology uses Face Detection Technology, the optical Image Stabilizer and scene information – on both scene brightness and changes between individual frames – to identify subject motion and camera-shake. ISO is also optimised for minimum blur and maximum image quality.

3.0” LCD
A generous 3.0” LCD screen with wide viewing angle makes framing and reviewing shots a pleasure.

Movie options
Supplement your photos with smooth, 30fps VGA video. A special Long Play mode means around twice as much footage can be stored on your memory card.
