Summary: I need a camera to give to a first time user , a student in a third world country and I chose this decade-old Canon . Although it is bulky and has a smallish LCD screen by today's standard, it is powered by the very readily available AA batteries , has an optical viewfinder to supplement the LCD and can focus near enough to the subject for life-size close-ups.For storage, this Canon does not require exclusive and expensive memory cards such as XD and memory stick but...
Awesome starter camera! Great value for the money!

Summary: I wanted to buy something that is not only cheap but also takes great pictures. I like the limited features which makes it a great starter camera. Simply super buy. Great quality pictures 5 MP is more than enough for me.Its super light weight.I wish it came with a lithium rechargeable battery. It uses a regular AA batteries and that sucks!
Excerpt: The Canon Power A460 is awesome. It takes really good pictures and is very easy to use. One thing to get used to is that the on/off button is next to the shutter button so sometimes I hit the wrong button and miss the shot. It would be nice if this button was not so close. A lot of the pictures that I take are for mystery shopping trips and I have to resize the pictures to send them to the company but it is very easy.
Excerpt: This camera rocks.......... it has all the features i needed its 5.o mega pixels which is generaly good for a camera.... it only has 4X optical Zoom but it takes great pictures i will attach a photo with this review to show you the great pictures it takes..... it comes in about 4 colors.... Blue, Red, Silver, and Black...... I picked blue of course and it is a great color.... my family asked me if i wanted to upgrade to a *fuji *which i think those cameras suck.......
The Canon digital camera takes the best pics with ease.

Excerpt: The Canon A460 is a digital camera that is so easy to operate. I love the quality of the pictures that it produces. It also has a zoom feature that makes it nice for close ups. Also have to say that it is about the perfect size to carry. Not too small and not bulky at all. The color of the pictures I take are very important to me as well as the clarity. I take my Canon everywhere I go and then just easily download my pictures onto the computer to save.
standard batteries:good, reasonably good average camera

Excerpt: The best thing about the camera is that it uses standard AA batteries. Cameras that use special batteries are a pain in the neck. Another good thing is that the battery life is fine. I have another camera that can only shoot about 10 shots then needs to rest and then can only shoot a few more. Even if you turn off the flash, the life is short. This camera is different. The bad thing is that there is no viewfinder, just a screen. But most cameras are like this now.
One of the best inexpensive digital cameras on the market

Excerpt: This is such a great camera. Everyone in our family uses it and it's being used ALL the time! The settings are extremely easy to use and quality is fantastic! It's really a great camera for the price! One of my favorite features in the super macro mode - it takes unbelievable photos at close range. I have used this camera to photograph family events, items that I've sold online, outside photos, inside photos - the quality is outstanding. It works great even in low light.
I've found much better cameras for the same price.

Excerpt: We received this camera as a gift and have been disappointer with it so far. We didn't want anything spectacular, but this camera has problems doing even the simplest things. The delay between the time you can take pictures is too long as the camera "charges the flash." This also means it goes through batteries fast that most cameras. It also fails to focus on anything a lot of the time and the pictures turn out blurry.
Excerpt: I really like my Powershot A460. It works really well. What i like about it are the settings you can have on the camera. You have settings for scenery, portraits, a regular picture, and it also takes pretty good videos. The pictures it takes look really well, and I am always impressed. Even though I love my camera, I wish they could have fixed some things before selling it. If you were to take a video, the sound isn't very good.
Excerpt: This camera (Canon PowerShot A460) is a great camera for beginners! It is extremely easy to use and not confusing in the least! I am looking to upgrade soon, but this camera has lasted me about two years. It was my first camera and I still love it. There is a 4x digital zoom, a user friendly menu and the buttons are simple. There is a medium size view screen and the zoom works pretty well.
