Awsomeness!!!!! With a Li'l Bit Of cons..
by PRALAY Chakraborty on 2012-10-31
I dint buy it from flipkart, as i had an urgent requirement. moreover the price is still at par with the shop where from i bought it. About the cam, i feel its a very good camera in this range. it gives original color, which lacks in the similar budget Nikon(yellowish) or Sony(redish) models. Macro is very very good comparing to other cam in this range. If you have passion in photography, you can start experimenting with "depth of field" with the macro option. here are some pros & cons:
1) 5x optical zoom.
2) Small and slim, light and sleek.
3) 16 Megapixel Sensor.
4) Very good macro in this range.
5) good quality picture, comparing to other models in this range.(dnt go for the quality reflected in the camera LCD, see in any laptop then you can feel the difference.
6) Good battery performance
1) No optical image stabilisation.(in a bit low light and with 3-5X zoom the images comes blur. but dnt worry it happened only where the light is low. in day light or using flash this will not pinch you)
2) Digital IS is not full resolution.
3) No optical zoom while in movie mode.
4) No pause button in movie mode(its very common.)
5) No Panorama mode
6) Poor High ISO noise performance.
Overall: if ur budget is limited to 6-6.5/7 K, then its an awesome camera in this range. Highly recommended for the begginers. there will be a number of pros & cons in each models. But as you are picking up a camera your primary requirement should be whether it is giving a good quality pic or not? in this area its marvellous, even the video quality is in HD. Lacking of panorama mode is a serious drawback. but no model is perfect. Go for it.
The best Point & Shoot Camera at this price
by Abhishek Prakash on 2013-03-27
My first choice:1 Canon A2300
I was willing to have any impressive and ton of featured solid camera under 7k.
I reviewed and visit sony ,samsung,Nikon and canon's site & showroom. I also visits youtube for video quality and found Canon as a winner!
I'm Using it since December 12 & totally satisfied with this camera and it's awesome features . However this is my very first Camera but it's totally friendly, it's preset settings are very helpful i never needed any manual corrections .
Panasonic is my second choice coz its features and video quality also awesome like Canon. And it also comes with 3 yrs warranty
no Sony, no Nikon, only CANON

But only if your price range is around 6500! This camera is better than Nikon Coolpix S2600 Point & Shoot, Sony Cybershot W 610 Point & Shoot, Nikon Coolpix L26 Point & Shoot, Canon PowerShot A2400 Point & Shoot. One difference is that this one doesn't have a panaroma feature n Sony W610 does. But the clarity's better than the cameras mentioned above, plus the miniature feature is kind of cool. Good for capturing family parties, college events, etc. Amateurs need not worry about the different modes available coz the AUTO mode does it all. Video quality is good too. Overall if u got 6500 in your hand, this is where you should stop browsing and click "Buy This Now".

It's one of the very good product from canon and working as expected. As I'm already using canon ixus, but I'm very impressed with PowerShoot A2300. HD video recording is very nice and it provides rich clarity. As everyone knows and experienced, Flipkart is amazing in all ways to deliver the goods. Thanks FlipKart.
Canon A2300-Best Camera Ever
by suhan munaf on 2012-11-09
It is the best model in Canon-Powershot series. It does have the said pro's and the said con's as well. I too experienced it immediately after buying this from a retail store. Initially,I was looking forward to buy Canon A2400 IS which has got the built in image stability which can convert a moving image to a still image. I went to buy this model with the notion of built IS feature. Before going ahead, I went through the bad reviews. Even after I went further to buy it with risk. But my decision got changed because of the sales person. She showed me features and also she clicked the pictures from both the models. I got surprised. The Canon A2400 IS model doesn't work with the said feature as compared to Canon A2300 model, it does have a digital image stabilizer and works well with it. Only a display setup is required.The A2400 Model built-in IS feature didnt work with it. The sales person recommended to buy Canon A2300 instead of Canon A2400 IS which has similar feature but not an expected performance. Finally, I bought Canon A2300 and gave the best performance which I expected. It's worth buying among all canon powershot models.
This is one heck of a camera
by Shruthi on 2012-09-14
I recently purchased this and this is one heck of a camera. This is the best u can get at this price range. Canon always beats Nikon. I would definitely recommend this camera.
It's a Canon
Comparably good CCD sensor (Usually I recommend CMOS Sensors over CCDs)
Very user friendly
The Build quality
A good video camera
and performs well in low light areas compared to others
As of now didn't find anything add in this :)

Outstanding and Awesome Camera
by Piyush Shirodkar on 2012-10-13
The Canon PowerShot 2300 Point & Shoot is superb, outstanding and awesome.
Excellent pics indoors as well as outdoors with 5X digital zoom and also the canon software is amazing.
With the 16.0 megapixel the resolution is excellent.
Very light in weight and small in size so very easy to handle.
And very satisfied with the free extra accessories which includes 4 GB memory card and pouch which can save and additional cost of Rs. 500-700.
Digital Camera for Rs.6300 is actually a paisa vassol.
I should suggest people to buy this camera.
