Canon PowerShot A530 5MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Zoom (OLD MODEL)

  • I bought this for my wife and she loves it. She\'s actually downgrading from a Nikon SLR film camera to this point-and-shoot and is perfectly satisfied with the features and ease of use of this camera.In my own evaluation of the camera, I find it remarkably well made and capable of producing surprisingly high quality images. If you\'re wondering about purchasing a more expensive model with higher megapixel numbers, I\'d say save your money. For all around use---family pics, snapshots, etc.---the 5 MP of this camera is more than adequate for 5x7 prints. In fact, it does something my Nikon D80 can\'t: you can use the display screen to frame shots as well as the viewfinder. An advantage I noticed during a family get together was that 3 of us had these Canons; so if you have trouble figuring out how to use it (unlikely), you\'ll probably find a relative who can show you how!My one criticism of this camera---and it\'s a commentary on many miniaturized electronic devices these days---is its unnecessarily small size. Sure, it makes this camera pocketable, but for large hands it is a bit of a challenge to use. More importantly, the size limits the number of batteries to 2. For a negligible increase in size Canon could have made a camera that uses 4 AA batteries and a shot-to-battery-charge ratio that would be far more practical. Watch how fast you go through a pair of batteries and see if you agree. I\'m withholding a star due to the above and also because I noticed the camera advertised locally for much less than I paid on Amazon (obviously not a criticism of the camera, but of Amazon).Highly recommended.
  • Camera was exactly as advertised, all went very well.
  • This is the fourth digital camera I\'ve purchased in the last five years (a point-shoot and DSLR for myself, and two point-shoots as gifts for others).If you were spending nearly $400 for 3 megapixel cameras in 2001, it\'s amazing to see what\'s available for half that price today.This was purchased for my mom, who is well into her 70s, and has been selling on Ebay for a few years. Her product pictures on a very low end camera she bought a few years ago really needed some help.This camera is fairly intuitive, and worked well out of the box.No strong negatives, but prepare for the following:Some of the the menus are complex and options I would consider commonly used (like photo resolution) are rather deeply buried.The memory card and batteries are located within the same access door on the bottom of the camera. This seems like a good way to end up picking up batteries.The bundled software is only OK. You can get a better organizer for free (Google\'s Picasa) and the editing software is nothing to get excited about.The flash options are limited to \"auto flash\" and \"no flash\". I was surprised not to find a \"manual flash\" to force flash operation (this may be one of the deeply buried options).It has lots of \"scenario\" presets (kids and pets, landscape, etc), but none of these seemed to offer any improvement over full auto. Inexplicably, the \"nightscape\" setting doesn\'t turn of the flash.If your needs are simple (and if you are already running an organizer like Picasa or the one in Photoshop Elements v5) then this camera should be more than adequate.
  • This is a great small, portable camera. If you are looking to do high end work, you might want to look at the SLRs. For everyday snapshots and photos this is more than suitable. For a carry in your pocket camera, this can\'t be beat. I bought one for my personal use, then two more for work. At work they get used by many people to photograph construction activities (generally not treated very gently) and have held up very well. Considerations for buying this:1. Good price.2. Uses AA batteries, so you aren\'t stuck with expensive proprietary batteries and you can always find replacements. I use rechargable NiMH and they last a long time (deplete faster if you use the screen and flash).3. Uses low-cost SD card. Sony and Fuji use higher cost Memory Stick or XD. I use 2GB Kingston cards, which cost about $40 each. Holds over 1000 photos at max resolution.4. The screen on the back is the right size. The later models have a bigger screen, but you lose the space in the button area. This model has a good combination of a readable screen and buttons that you can push wearing gloves.5. 4X optical zoom is a plus.6. Comfortable grip. One hand only works fine.All these small cameras have weak flashes. Don\'t expect more than about a twelve foot range. For low light shooting, I set to multiple shot mode at 1 second increments. Then it shoots itself with no wobbling from the finger pushing the button.5MP max resolution will get you great 10x12 prints, and decent larger prints. Anything smaller is excellent.This camera takes great outdoor pics, with good color and resolution. I don\'t have to do much (if any) photoshopping on those.The included shooting modes are useful. I use night a lot and it improves the photos.The little Canon carry case is well worth the $10. The camera fits right in and is well protected.My daughter has had the older A510 at college and it has worked great for her as well.
