Summary: Some things just don't improve with newer models. This Powershot A40 is an example. Now we are talking here about a digital camera that was originally released in the early '00s'. It was my first digital camera and I spent alot of time researching all of the then available cameras, both by maker and...
Summary: It's outdated & unavailable new but I still think the Canon A-series line is the best balance of features, ease of use, & price. My A20 is still going strong after 2 years and 3000+ photos. It has been thousands of miles by automobile & aircraft and still takes excellent shots.
Summary: The Canon A40 is simple to operate and takes decent images with its 2 megapixel/3x zoom features. It's compatible with a Macintosh OS/X and the digital imaging edit software is easy to use. After six months, the lens jammed and the camera did not function properly.
Summary: I searched reviews information and asked tons of ?'s before making my decision to purchase this camera. And I am so happy to own it. I am not an expert at digital or computer stuff and this camera was so easy to use. I have replaced my 35mm & 110 camera with this camera.
Summary: I am a novice photographer, having switched to this camera from a point and shoot that only had wide angle and telephoto lenses. The following are my opinions of this camera after 6 months and about 750 pictures: Good: 1. Excellent outdoor picture quality.
Summary: This is my second digital camera - the first was a point and shoot Fuji 1.3MP camera. For under 200 dollars, this is the best 2 MP camera you can get. Construction: There is no plastic except on the flash card cover. It feels solid and fits perfectly in your hand.
Summary: This is not a professional level camera. It is a casual users camera, and as such, it does an outstanding job. It's nice and light, but not ridiculously small. I've had other entry level digital cameras, and the photo quality on this one is very nice.
Summary: The picture quality, ease of use and functionality make the A40 a steal when you consider the MSRP. It will soon be replaced by the A60, which I assume will be of equal or better value. The thing I love best about my A40 is the picture quality in low light situations.
Summary: Though 3 and 4 megapixel cameras are becoming more popular, this affordable 2 megapixel camera is worthwhile for people on a budget. It easily pays for itself in film and processing costs. It is best for smaller pictures. I print 5x7's and they come out wonderfully. It's the only camera I use!
Summary: I just got this camera a week ago and I love it! Wow... it takes great pictures for the point and click photographer in Automatic or Program mode (which offers simple adjustments). Yet offers great features for the more advanced photographer in Manual mode.
