Review Summary

The Canon Powershot A460 is a small practical camera specially designed to just point and shoot. With its 4x zoom lens and optical viewfinder, the Canon Powershot A460 is known to be a single and easy to use camera by its users. It comes in handy for people who are just beginning to learn about photography. Its controls are well placed and easy to be accessed. The menu system is known to be logically organized which allows the camera setting to be changed in very fast movements. Loyal fans of Canon consider its functions to be unique in many ways. That view might be partial as many non-Canon fans feel that the Canon Powershot A460 has no important manual-control features to offer. Neither stylish nor ultra-thin, the Canon Powershot A460 is said to be weighting around 7.4 ounces and is 1.6 inches thick. This points out the fact that it won’t fit in one’s pocket. One user described the Canon Powershot A460 as an irritating design, and large thumbs will be prone to accidentally bumping the zoom in or out, or changing settings such as flash when using the zoom. Some users dislike the fact that the Canon Powershot A460 has a very noisy system function which includes while taking shots which might seem like an uncomfortable process to many. Its zoom seems awkward to many and there’s no 30fps VGA movie mode. While some think that taking Exceptional Pictures is a Snap with Canon’s New A-Series Cameras. Despite that, the Canon Powershot A460 is known to have a very strong body as according to one user, it still works fine after being dropped, stuffed in bags and being able to sustain in the heat and dust. Its battery works fine and able to sustain itself or a long time.
