The Canon PowerShot A75 is the 2004 update to Canon’s wildly popular PowerShot A70 model from 2003. Changes from the earlier PowerShot A70 are evolutionary rather than revolutionary, but there are plenty of them nonetheless. There’s a larger LCD (1.8 inches, up from 1.5), more Special modes, and a faster, more efficient DIGIC processor. The PowerShot A75 also debuts at $50 cheaper than its predecessor. Featuring a full 13 shooting modes, the Canon A75 offers not only manual and full-auto exposure control, but five preset capture modes, and six Scene modes to boot. The A75 has a maximum shutter speed of 1/2,000 second, and includes a Custom white balance setting. Best of all, the camera accommodates a wide range of users with its variable level of exposure control. Experienced shooters will appreciate the Manual, Aperture Priority, and Shutter Priority modes, while novices will find the Auto, Program AE, and Scene modes useful. Plus, the PowerShot A75 has a 9-point AF system (up from the A70’s 5-point AF), and the benefit of Canon optics with its 3x zoom lens. Advanced features continue with an orientation sensor, date imprint mode, manual focus, and the new Print/Share button that is appearing on all new Canon PowerShots. Will the A75 enjoy the same exceptional popularity as did the A70 and A40? I suspect that that honor will fall more to the PowerShot A80, but the A75 has plenty going for it, regardless.
