the first couple of camera manufacturers that they can think of, and one of them will almost certainly be Canon. In the digital arena, Canon’s continued their history of innovation with a broad line of products ranging from entry-level models all the way to no-holds-barred digital SLRs for professional photographers. In the consumer arena, their products are distinguished by superb design, sharp lenses, and excellent color.

In the past, Canon hasn’t reached too far down into the entry-level end of the market, concentrating instead on more full-featured cameras intended to sell at higher prices. With the introduction of the A100 and its higher-resolution brother the A200 though, Canon has taken aim squarely at the entry-level market, creating very affordable cameras with surprisingly strong feature sets and the trademark Canon picture quality. I’m not personally a fan of non-zoom cameras, but recognize that they have an important place in the market, and the A100 deserves a good look if you’re shopping in that category, and want genuinely good image quality at a rock-bottom price. Read on for all the details.

(NOTE: This review is almost identical to that of the 2.0 megapixel A200, as the two cameras share the same user interface. If you’ve already read the A200’s review you may want to skip down to the below or check out the  to see how the A100 did in our tests.
