[ REVIEW — CANON POWERSHOT A450 ]

  • Excerpt: This is Canon’s cheapest digital camera. It has a 5 megapixel sensor and a 38–122mm (film equivalent) zoom lens. It has a small (50mm) LCD screen and, surprisingly at this price, a useful optical viewfinder. The camera is chunky, a little larger than a credit card and 40mm thick so it is only for a bulky jacket pocket. The camera is well made and doesn’t look cheap.
  • Pros: This may be Canon’s least expensive camera but it comes with comprehensive, printed user manuals, one basic and the other detailed. We wish that all makers would follow the lead here instead of saving a few cents by providing the manual on disc.
  • Cons: The A450 images are noisy. At ISO 200 it is bordering on unusable. ISO 80 and 100 are acceptable but we reckon that 200 ought to be usable on any camera. The images cleaned up well in a noise reduction program but we don’t think that anyone buying an entry camera is going to know about that sort of esoteric software.

  • Summary: A rare misstep for Canon, the PowerShot A450 captures exceptionally accurate colours, but falls down in several other areas, resulting in less than crisp pictures.
  • Pros: Excellent colour reproduction
  • Cons: Extremely high levels of chromatic aberration, some noise issues
