Canon's A2200 is an entry-level shooter without much flair. We're usually big fans of the Canon A-series; they almost always offer above-average image quality and performance for the price, but something feels like it's missing from this particular camera. Yes, it can record HD video, but it has no optical image stabilization, and the 4x zoom range is average at best. It's still an above-average budget-camera option, but we'd recommend that you take a look at the A3300 IS for a little bit more money.
