Sitting a notch below the A3100 in Canon's A Series lineup for 2010, the Powershot A3000 packs a fairly standard 10 megapixel sensor, 4x stabilized optical zoom, and a 2.7-inch LCD screen. Canon made some welcome improvements over previous A Series models, like a bigger ISO range (up to 3200) for improved low-light shots, some built-in contrast and saturation effects, and (finally) a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. It's nothing ground-breaking, just a solid budget compact camera -- and nobody does budget compacts better than Canon. It's getting old and the price is seeing a late-life surge, so we're dropping the rage a bit, as better, newer cameras have begun to appear.
