OK, but not impressed.

JEP, Amazon

  • Summary: Expectations were low, but this was a satisfactory point-and-shoot camera for a few years. Eventually the zoom stopped focusing, and it has become badly scratched over time. Also very hard to keep clean.

  • Summary: After waiting 25 days to reach the to CANADA I received a quite securely packed machine! The item was a bit different than what I saw in the pictures of the description. All over the surface was worn so much and look so old, quite dirty as well. I wish it would have been written in description! To my surprise IT WAS WORKING! what a relief! A little bit slower than my old one(I have the same machine which its lens shutter just broke a month ago after 4 years of usage).

Good camera for the price

R. Batista "blink56k", Amazon
21 January 2007
  • Summary: Good camera for the price I got it for. Pros: -High resolution and quality for its price -Good picture quality even at lower resolutions and extensive other features (flash-type, picture fineness, decent zoom, short video clip feature) -Cheap -Works with Windows, Linux and Mac (then again most USB cameras these days do, but I've known others which have been nightmares) Cons -You have to buy rechargeable batteries or you're not going to go too far with this camera -The...

Nice, Average Camera

Tiger Girl, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera for my boyfriend for Christmas because it was affordable and it was a Canon! It takes great pics and videos (though I still can't figure out how to add sound). It has a defect though I'm afraid. It won't turn on until we flip the batteries. I'm sure its a minor thing and it really doesn't affect anything. It runs batteries down pretty quickly, but it's small, compact, and takes amazing pics!

Bought this here at Amazon, and returned it after a week

Cowboys "Cowboys", Amazon

  • Summary: Believe it or not the Canon A430 4MP superfine mode is worse than my old Nikon Coolpix 2500 2MP... Wait at least 5 seconds for the flash between shot, and you know the little ones don't sit still. Kodak moments are gone before the camera cooperated. Color is not quite accurate either... Other than that, has lots of extra features...but that is not the reason I buy a camera. I'm going to give Canon another try with the SD600 model...
