CanonCanon PowerShot A3200 IS digital camera : Canon unveils the PowerShot A3200 IS, a new digital camera model that combines high-quality imaging and a range of creative features in a bright, colourful body; making it easier to have more fun with your photography. Capturing high-resolution, still images and optically stabilised 720p HD video, the Canon A3200 IS offers an exceptionally easy-to-use, flexible and great value option for those who want to relive their best moments in amazing detail. Succeeding the A3100 IS at the top of the PowerShot A-series, the Canon PowerShot A3200 IS is slim and stylish, with a solid metal chassis that reflects the enduring, robust performance assured by all Canon products.

The 14.2 megapixel Canon PowerShot A3200IS digital camera offers the flexibility of a high-resolution image sensor. This resolution allows users to print at A2 size without compromising on quality, or to crop tightly to create interesting compositions. Canon’s latest DIGIC 4 image processing provides swift operation and excellent quality shots. Allowing users to inject colour into their photography before they even take their first image, the PowerShot A3200 IS is available in pink, orange, silver and aqua.

A genuine Canon 28mm wide-angle lens with 5x optical zoom provides great flexibility in all situations, whether recording family gatherings, holidays or evening events. The versatile zoom range will ensure everyone fits in the frame, or can get closer to subjects for intimate portraits. The integrated lens-shift optical Image Stabilizer - an unrivalled advantage of Canon cameras - reduces the effects of camera shake, which can add blur to images shot in low light or at the telephoto end of the zoom. This allows users to capture sharp results in full resolution with up to 1/8th of the light than would otherwise be possible from a model without image stabilization.

Smart Auto mode on the Canon PowerShot A3200 IS
The Canon PowerShot A3200 IS makes it easier for everyone to capture fantastic still images to mark an event, a special moment or an exciting adventure. The Canon A3200 IS offers the latest version of Canon’s Smart Auto mode, which instantly evaluates each shooting situation against multiple factors, grouped in 32 detectable scenes, and then automatically adjusts the camera settings to capture the scene as intended, without requiring any input from the photographer. Perfect for capturing the action, Smart Auto combines Face Detection Technology with the latest Advanced Subject Detection technology, allowing it to identify and lock onto both human and non-human moving subjects within the scene. Once identified, Servo AF/AE ensures the subject remains in focus and well-exposed, right up until the shutter release is fully pressed and the image is recorded.

Thanks to enhanced integrated i-Contrast and Smart Flash Exposure functions, Smart Auto captures subjects in the best possible detail, reducing the occurrence of harsh shadows and over-exposed highlights. Motion Detection Technology also senses camera or subject movement, automatically selecting the optimum combination of shutter speed and ISO sensitivity for sharp, low noise results. Even challenging situations, such as subjects illuminated with strong spotlights or backlit subjects, can be automatically detected and optimally captured using Smart Auto mode.

Canon PowerShot A3200 IS LCD screen
For those who prefer straightforward point and shoot photography, Easy mode deactivates most of the buttons and removes icons from the screen, making it simple for even the most inexperienced user to take great photos. Favourite images can easily and immediately be shared on the large, 230,000-dot screen. The Canon PowerShot A3200 IS boasts a 6.7 cm (2.7”) LCD, with five brightness settings. A Quick Bright function instantly sets the screen to full brightness at the touch of a button, which can be particularly useful when viewing the screen under very bright lighting conditions. Furthermore, on-screen Hints & Tips provide a brief overview of each function, helping users to quickly familiarise themselves with the camera menu.

Video capture with the Canon PowerShot A3200 IS
720p high-definition video provides an additional avenue for users to record special moments in rich quality - recording in H.264 format, which allows for more video to be stored on a single card compared to the standard MJPEG format. In a first for the PowerShot A-series, the Canon A3200IS also features Canon’s Dynamic optical Image Stabilizer which counteracts picture shake commonly recorded when the user is moving and recording at the same time, helping to produce smoother, sharper footage.

Canon A3200 IS incorporates creative filters
The Canon PowerShot A3200 IS features six Creative Filters which add a different perspective to images. In addition to Miniature Effect, Fish-eye Effect, Super Vivid and Poster Effect, two new filters have been added to enable users to experiment with a greater range of effects. New Toy Camera Effect gives images the retro feel of pinhole camera photos, while Monochrome creates atmospheric shots with sepia, black and white or other monochromatic tones. Canon’s popular Miniature Effect can be applied to movies as well as still images, recording 1.5, 3 or 6 frames per second in movie mode to create the impression of a time-lapse video of a small-scale model.

Canon PowerShot A3200 IS offers Live View Control
For users who like the freedom to make image adjustments without having extensive knowledge of manual settings, Live View Control allows basic image controls such as brightness, colour or tone to be changed manually to match a desired result. Each adjustment is displayed live on the LCD screen, allowing the different effects to be previewed while framing the subject, prior to image capture. The Canon PowerShot A3200 IS offers a range of innovative ways to take self-portraits, or ensures the photographer can be part of the picture. Smart Shutter with Face Detection Technology allows users to trigger the shutter release with a smile, a wink or simply after the camera detects an extra face entering the frame. A new Discreet mode is also ideal for shooting in quiet locations where flash photography is not permitted, such as during ceremonies or inside museums, allowing users to carry on shooting by disabling all camera sounds, the focus assist lamp and the flash. Owners of the Canon PowerShot A3200 IS will also receive automatic membership to the Canon iMAGE Gateway, with 2GB of free, secure, online space to upload and share favourite images and video.
