Steady shots of moving moments
With Dynamic Image Stabilizer and a set of other impressive features, the metal bodied PowerShot A3200 IS captures beautiful photos and HD movies with ease.
A high resolution sensor captures every detail in your subject, giving you the freedom to produce very large prints or crop in for a perfect composition.
A 28mm wide-angle view provides greater scope for wide landscapes and indoor shots, while a 5x optical telephoto function allows the user to zoom in on details and frame more creatively.
An optical Image Stabilizer makes this camera’s performance really stand out. Compensating for camera shake in challenging conditions such as lower light or when shooting with full zoom, the Image Stabilizer helps you capture images in full detail and with less blur at all times.
A large and sharp screen makes it easy to frame and share shots with friends. Subjects appear in good detail and playback is a joy thanks to five different brightness settings, allowing you to adjust it for any lighting condition.
With Smart Auto, you can take great photos with the press of a button. The camera automatically selects the most appropriate scene from a possible 32 and applies the best settings for a perfect picture. Easy mode prevents you from accidently changing settings, while Hints & Tips provide a brief explanation of the camera’s features.
The PowerShot A3200 IS features 720p video capture, allowing you to record scenes in high definition quality. Dynamic IS uses the optical Image Stabilizer to reduce wobble on movies shot while moving such as when walking alongside to your subject.
Live View Control allows you to easily adjust various picture settings while framing the shot. 6 Creative Filters including Miniature and Toy Camera Effect produce impressive results to spark your imagination.
Face Detection Technology detects up to 35 faces in a single frame and ensures that people remain in focus and with optimum brightness. Red-eye is automatically removed immediately after the shot is taken or during playback.
Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor drives responsive operation, superb image quality and colour reproduction. Advanced Noise Reduction ensures richly detailed, cleaner images, even at high ISO speeds.
Lithium-ion batteries provide a lightweight and easily rechargeable powering solution.
