Summary: The Canon PowerShot A470 is a camera affordable and suitable for those who are not expert in photography. Aside from the ergonomic design, has various functions, including image stabilizer, face detection and various scene modes.
Pros: Correction tbsp red; Ease of Use; Face detection.
Conclusion: The 7 megapixel PowerShot A470 is a budget entry-level camera which is easy to use. It has a decent and usable (but not exceptional) 2.5 inch LCD, large buttons and good battery life.
Pros: Very low selling price, Good battery life (but some cameras are still better), Decent LCD visibility (though see below), Fast performance in all areas, Long exposure mode and custom white balance; both rare on budget cameras, 1 cm super macro mode, Redeye correction, comprehensive info display in...
Cons: Low LCD resolution, No dedicated zoom controller, Lens isn’t too wide, not stabilized either, No optical image stabilization, Choppy 20 FPS VGA movie mode
Summary: Ok, I’ll admit it. The Canon PowerShot A470 is far from the smallest camera on the market, and it’s certainly not the sexiest. What, then, are we to make of Canon’s latest, lightly updated but clearly aging super-budget offering?
Pros: Sharp lens – even at the corners, Fast AF and imperceptible shutter lag, No nasty image quality surprises, Is there a more user friendly camera?
Cons: Awkward/odd zoom control, Weak battery life numbers, Flash recycle times still an issue, Sadly, no IS
Summary: The successor to last year's successful entry-level , the new 7.1 megapixel A470 model has undergone a striking external makeover, matched dramatically by a number of key internal enhancements.
Summary: If you're on a budget you'll be hard pressed to find a better camera for your dollar. It doesn't take the best pictures on earth and it leaves a little to be desired in terms of style, but the Canon PowerShot A470 certainly is good value for money.
Pros: Low price, sharp pictures, speedy operation, good colour
