Canon PowerShot A2500 Preview

Canon's new entry-level A-series camera, the PowerShot A2500, includes a number of nice features like a 16 megapixel image sensor, the DIGIC 4 image processor, and a 5x optical zoom lens.

For newer photographers, you're going to love Smart AUTO, which automatically selects between 32 predefined shooting modes to best fit the current lighting conditions, and the Help Button, which will explain certain settings and functions. There's also a new ECO mode, which helps extend battery live, as well as some familiar favorite Scene Modes -- like Fisheye, Toy Camera, and Monochrome -- to help you stylize your latest pics.
