Excerpt: I would not recommend the Canon A470 powershot point and shoot camera. I was looking for a point and shoot camera when I was pregnant with my daughter and wanted something small and easy to use that I could throw in the diaper bag. Even though this camera was under $100 I was hoping it would take half way decent pictures because it was a canon and had decent reviews.
Summary: After put the battery i get warnings about bad batteries (brand new batteries fully charge, i test then with a voltimeter) then the lens came out but it never come back to the original posicion, then i get lens error all time, after read about this kind of problem i found is pretty normal, i try everything i saw on the net to fix the problem but nothing, the mechanism is not working. Bad camera, i dont recomend it.
Summary: My camera just stopped working -- on Christmas Eve nonetheless! I have had it exactly 4 months. I have not used it very often -- I liked it while I was using it. The only drawback was not being able to see what I was taking a picture of if I was outside in bright sunlight. Up until today, I would have given this a great review. However, I was just taking a picture when it froze and will not turn back on again.
Summary: After less than a month and about 400 pictures took it, I got a "Lens error, restart camera" (not the first one with this problem Canon should know about it so far). Without any drop or hitting the camera. I was on trip mad to not viable to take more pictures. There is no international warranty.
Summary: i usually love canon cameras, but this camera i was not very happy with. i have no problem with the pictures coming out good. the color comes out very nice. the problem i have with it is the time that it takes to take one picture and then take another. if your batteries are not fully charged, the wait time to take another pic could be up to 10 seconds. the zoom can be blurry at times too. it's a good basic camera for someone who takes photos every now and then.
Summary: The camera lasted two minutes then froze. Wasn't on my Amazon account under recent purchases so by the time I contacted the seller it was just over their two week return limit.Have to go through the hassle of returning to manufacturer. Just a very un-needed hassle really.
Summary: Vor etwa vier Jahren gab meine Kamera den Geist auf. Ich benötigte also neues Gerät, und zwar möglichst günstig. Die Canon Power Shot A470 glänzte mit großartigen Rezensionen. Nun nutze ich sie seit vier Jahren - und ärgere mich ständig über diese Kamera! Die Qualität der Bilder ist sehr schlecht: unscharf, viel zu hell oder zu dunkel, pixelig. Detailaufnahmen funktionieren überhaupt nicht, auch nicht im Detail-Modus. Eine Kamera für die Mülltonne!

Summary: Hiç kimseye tavsiye etmeyeceğim bir cihaz. Görüntü kalitesi çok iyi ama pil süresi çok düşük. Bir çift pil ile en fazla 50 resim çekebiliyorsunuz. Pilde sorun vardır diye beş çift pil denedim aynı. Forumlaradan araştırdım ve sorunun cihazların tümünde olduğunu gördüm. Servis bu konuda hiç yardımcı olmuyor. Üç kere servise yolllamama rağmen hiç bir sonuç alamadım. Ayrıca servisi sadece istanbul ankara ve izmirde var.
Pros: Görüntü kalitesi çok iyi
Cons: Pili çabuk tüketiyor. Yetkili servisi hel ilde yok.
