The PowerShot A2300 features an approximately 16-megapixel CCD sensor, the high-performance DIGIC 4 image processor, and a 5x optical zoom lens (28-140 mm* / f/2.8-f/6.9). It offers Smart AUTO, a function that automatically selects optimal settings based on shooting conditions, making it easy for anyone to achieve great-quality shots.

The A2300 newly incorporates Digital IS, which automatically determines the main subject in the frame and corrects for the effects of camera shake and subject blur. When the camera recognizes the main subject as a person, it automatically controls the shutter speed. In instances when the subject is not a person, the camera automatically captures three consecutive images and either composes a blur-free image by combining all three images, or saves the sharpest single image from the three.

The A2300 newly includes a Help Button that provides users with guidance regarding operation and settings while the ring-type operation selector includes an Auto button that, when pressed, allows users to easily return to Auto Mode from any previously selected shooting mode.
