The price of most digital cameras tend to trend downwards over time, and the same price drop should occur in the case of the Canon Powershot A3000 IS compact digital camera.
The Canon A3000IS was announced on Tuesday, 5 January 2010, and features a 10 MP (Megapixels), 1/2.3” CCD sensor, with a 4X, 35 — 140mm (in 35mm equivalent terms) image-stabilized zoom lens. Weight is approximately 5.47 oz. / 155g (including batteries and memory card) while dimensions (WxHxD) are 3.83 x 2.29 x 1.11 in. / 97.2 x 58.2 x 28.1.
I’m not planning for any scheduled updates, but do check back here from time to time for the latest and best prices on the Canon A3000 and related accessories.
The A3000 comes in only one color scheme — a two-toned black and silver casing.

Canon PowerShot A3000IS 10 MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7-Inch LCD: $129.00 (no change in price since the last update).
Typical accessories for the A3000
Rechargeable Canon NB-8L Li-Ion Battery Pack. A battery is already included in the box, but consider buying a second, backup battery for your A3000. This way, you can be sure your camera continues to have a power source during extended shooting sessions.
Refer to Rob Galbraith’s SD / SDHC card write speed tests (done on a Nikon D90) to get an idea on the relative write and read speeds of different brands of cards. At the time of writing (Oct 29, 2009), the SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards occupy the top two spots.
To ensure smooth recording of video and high resolution images, go for Class 6 or faster cards.
Good luck shopping for your Canon A3000 IS!
