Summary: It’s true, there are a couple of weaknesses with this camera but they can be forgiven quickly for a camera at this level, given the good overall image quality, the performance and its sub £100 price.
Pros: Image quality, Easy to use, Focusing and macro mode, For an extra £40, it’s available as a bundle with the Selphy CP520 printer.
Cons: Confusing four-way controller, Heavy on the power from AA cells, LCD prone to flaring in bright conditions, Limited sensitivity options, LCD blacks out during flash recharge.
Excerpt: Like all Canons, the PictBridge standard enables any digital camera that supports PictBridge to connect and print to any PictBridge compatible printer. This is the first time Im not going to put a good word for a Canon camera.
Excerpt: The 5 MegaPixel Canon PowerShot A460 is out to make a point that you don’t need to have an expensive digital camera to take good shots. While a bit bulky, the A460 still looks OK. You can choose from five modes for different types of photo and video shooting and previewing.
Summary: The new PowerShot A460 digital camera features 5.0-megapixels of resolution with a 4x optical zoom lens and a 2.0-inch LCD screen, up from 4.0 megapixels and a 1.8-inch LCD screen on last year's .
Conclusion: There is a lot to like about the Powershot A460, but the noise levels and also the shutter lag times when the flash unit is being used are major causes of concern. The strong points include the natural colours and small amount of extra zoom on an entry level digital camera.
