Canon PowerShot A470

Digital Photography Interface
13 July 2009
  • 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. The camera is simple, being an entry-level one, there’s no suite of manual controls here but you still can find long shutter speed control and custom white balance, plus a handful of scene modes.
  • 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 playback, Image quality is good at ISO 400 and below, ISO 800 for small prints
  • 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: 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. The PowerShot A470 is a stylish and compact model, that is available in four different color accents - blue, red, orange and gray - over a contoured metallic finish body that highlights the camera's new design and reflects the camera user's individuality, personality and taste.

  • 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
  • Cons: Chromatic aberration issues, noise perhaps a touch high, boxy design
