Canon PowerShot A3300 IS verdict
The Canon PowerShot A3300 IS is a 16 Megapixel compact with a 3 inch LCD screen and a 5x stabilised optical zoom lens. It sits at the top of Canon's A series compact range which combines point-and-shoot auto exposure modes with ease of use features like scene detection, face detection, Smart shutter and a range of scene modes.

The technology works in practice too. There may be little for manual control enthusiasts, but left to figure everything out by itself in auto, the A3300 IS handles confidently and delivers good results.

Canon has added some innovative new features like results-based Live View Control, Creative filters and discrete mode and, for the first time on A series models, there's a 720p HD video mode in addition to standard resolution recording. Annoyingly there's still no optical zoom when filming, but with a relatively noisy zoom motor, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Good points
5x stabilised optical zoom.
28mm equivalent wide angle.
Creative filters and Live View Control.
720p HD video.

Bad points
Difficult to operate control pad.
No optical zoom on video.
No HDMI port.
Poor continuous shooting performance.
