Canon announced more low-end A-series point-and-shoots than we expected this year, the PowerShot A2300 among them. Like the other "entry-level" cameras this year, it's a 16-megapixel shooter with 5x optical zoom, and its defining characteristic is its rechargeable lithium-ion battery (as opposed to AA power).
On paper, it's in an awkward no-man's land in the 2012 lineup.
