Excerpt: The Canon Powershot A470 is a budget camera for casual photographers and non-professionals, like me. It has a 7 megapixels sensor and comes at a really affordable, and reasonable price. The price was of course the first impressions of this digital camera.
Excerpt: I regularly use the Canon Power Shot point and shoot digital camera at work. Part of my job is to maintain the company’s intranet. One of the main regular features on the intranet are pictures of company events and employees.
Summary: I really do love this camera. It is simple to operate, it takes pictures that are clear and easily edited as well as upload. I've gotten some good photos, I think, certainly not professional but obtained what my goal had been in taking them. It uses regular AA batteries that don't go flat quickly. It's hardy, I've had it in sand, bumped on sidewalks, dropped while walking and it continues to shine. I'd get this camera again in a heartbeat.
Summary: The Cannon Powershot A470 7.1 MP digital camera was just what I needed when I needed it. It takes excellent photos and takes video images. It is compact and easy to operate. Just point and shoot!
Summary: While mobile phones now do much of what this camera can do, you may find it hard to carry this as an additional point & shoot, it's still great as a stand-alone product and I would recommend it for this kind of everyday purpose. It takes reasonably well-lit, focused pictures in regular and macro mode, and does so with colors that feel natural.
Summary: I bought this camera in March 2009 as a gift for my daughter because she wanted to start taking videos of my seven year-old granddaughter. I spent hours researching and I was so grateful for the excellent customer reviews here at Amazon. They told me everything I needed to know and more.
Summary: I wanted a second camera that i could leave in the car or have as a spare when the phone is low on battery. This Camera was a perfect choice-and ive even used it to take close up shots of stuff i sold on ebay. For what i paid for it, its awesome.
Excerpt: I bought this for my sister who is in high school. Basic camera for straters. My sis does like to take pics everywhere. She said tht the cam takes nice pics. I got it for around 90 bucks and it's worth it i think,,, The bad thing is the use of AA batteries. It's quiet annoying to see ur battery go down often. I bought a rechargable from amazon which costed around 15 with the charger.
Awesome for starters and compact, but ready for more.

Excerpt: I've had this particular camera for at least three years. It is very compact and easy to transport. This camera was bought for me to carry around all the time for snapshots of my four children. It was inexpensive, yet still takes great photos. I did purchase a larger storage disc for it. As with any electronics, the daily toting in my purse has caused it to show wear. The one major part that needs improvement is the "wait time" between pictures.
