Disappointingly noisy images

J. Hansell, Amazon

  • Summary: I've used a Canon G3 for about 4 years, and have always been pleased with the image quality. I've tested the A460 against it in several situations and can report that: -it's faster - the powerup and shot to shot speed are excellent. -it's easy to learn and use. -it focuses better and quicker in macro mode. -The flash works well and quickly, and creates reasonably pleasing light in a variety of circumstances.

A Perfect First Timer's Compact Canon Camera!

  • Excerpt: As graduation presents go, many people gave me many things, most of which were either money or vouchers. My parents gave me vouchers for John Lewis knowing that I like going to this store for quality even though I do moan often about the prices of their goods compared to products online which can be purchased for a cheaper price.
  • Pros: Great features, excellent quality of photo, good zoom, easy to use, not too heavy
  • Cons: Battery life and old 16MB memory card too small; newer version has bigger 1GB card, no carry case .

Good...but not in Africa

tunnag, Ciao
8 August 2008
  • Excerpt: I owned this camera for roughly 6 months and bought it due to the reviews saying that it was pretty much indestructable and i was off to africa for a month. At first i found this a great camera. It has a fairly large screen and easy to use buttons. The picture was very clear and excelent for anyone wanting a sharp picture without the expensive price tag. Although it worked fine in Scotland , a week into my trip the camera stopped workin due to a lens error.
  • Pros: Clear photos
  • Cons: Not dust - proof

what you see is not always what you get!

cheeky Monkey, Amazon

  • Summary: It's an okay camera, especially for kids (age 10+). Downside, slow recharging between taking photos, not ideal if wanting to take several shots in a hurry. What you see through the eye piece is not what appears on the shot/lcd screen. i.e. the screen seems to zoom in so what you've framed through eye piece gets chopped off round the edges. Mind you, kids seem to prefer just using the screen instead of viewer to take photos.

I STILL love this camera

lizzieloc..., Ciao
20 February 2008
  • Excerpt: I still love this camera after several months of ownership. There are five settings on the wheel on the back: "For Still photos" 1. Auto, within which you can change flash, drive mode and picture size but nothing else; 2. Manual, within which you can swap between manual or super macro mode. The manual option allows you change the exposure, film speed (ISO 80 - 400), white balance, drive mode and colour effects (sepia, b&w, vivid, etc).
  • Pros: Super Macro function, price
  • Cons: Battery life

Great camera for low price, with 4 x optical zoom.

  • Summary: We chose this camera over the Canon IXUS range for a number of reasons: 1. Firstly, although the IXUS range is slightly smaller and in particular slimmer, we didn't consider the size issue to be worth spending double the money on the equivalent IXUS. This camera, the A460, is perfectly small enough to fit on your pocket or handbag. 2. The optical 4x zoom is great, and you generally only get 3x zoom on the thinner style cameras.
