First published on: Tuesday, 20 April 2010

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 A3100 IS compact digital camera.

Typical accessories for the A3100

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 A3100. This way, you can be sure your camera continues to have a power source during extended shooting sessions.

For storage, the A3100 uses SD, SDHC or the latest SDXC cards.

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 A3100 IS!
