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 Iâ€™m not going to put a good word for a Canon camera. If youâ€™re an expert photographer with enough skill to shoot well enough to pick apart technical image quality, youâ€™re not likely to own this camera.
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. And, when you realise for another £40 you can buy this camera with the Selphy CP520 printer (see its complimentary test via the link above) as a bundle, it looks even better.
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.

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.
