Not bad for a $90 Camera

Scott Walton, Amazon
6 August 2009
  • Summary: I was on a business trip to do a final walk-through of a large installation and forgot my camera ( , 5.1MP) so I ran out to CompUSA and got this one for $89.99 and was excited about it.

NIMBLE FINGERS

NANA, Amazon
19 December 2008
  • Summary: I PURCHASED THIS CAMERA FOR MY VACATION IN JULY AND I HAVE REALLY LIKED IT FOR THE MOST PART. MY ONLY REAL COMPLAINT IS THAT THE BATTERY & SD CARD COMPARTMENT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO OPEN. I AM 66-YRS OLD AND MY FINGERS DON'T WORK SO WELL TO OPEN THIS AREA UP.

Two years of love, then we had a Canon death ...

Heather O, Amazon

  • Summary: We purchased this camera for our business in lieu of toting our nicer camera for quick property photos. Camera takes a great picture and does video. We haven't tested the video just yet. Camera handles dim situations relatively well, not without moderate pixelation, but I am nonetheless impressed.

Canon PowerShot A470

Carmen SanDiego, Amazon

  • Summary: A really great camera,for a first time user. It is easy to use although it takes a little while to get used to how to operate and select the features. Stay away from the "Format" section - this will delete all your pictures.

its okay

Suzanna Davis, Amazon
19 August 2008
  • Summary: The picture quality is good but the lag time between pushing the button especially with the flash making a bright light while it gets ready for the shot destroys any spontaneous shots especially of my animals or child.

Good overall camera

Nichole, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this camera with my summer trips in mind. I picked it mainly because of the price - I'm not a real camera junkie. I found that on the whole it operates very well. The only problem I have is that it tends to get blurry in action shots, or if you zoom in too close.

Good Camera for Price

K. Marquart, Amazon
13 June 2008
  • Summary: This is a good camera for the price. It is simple to use and takes clear, crisp pictures. Also, the battery life is good. And the price makes it affordable to take good pictures. Just keep in mind, that this camera works well if your subject is stationary. It is not for action shots.

Nice pictures but short life

  • Excerpt: I am writing this review here because Canon A460 is not listed in the models. I own a Canon Powershot A460. My two friends had the A430 and A450 and I had the opportunity of using them before I broght one for myself. Alas!, I was a bit hasty to make that decision and now I regret it.

  • Excerpt: Am using Canon Powershot A470 camera for the past 1 year and it is amazing. The price of this 7.1megapixel camera was within my budget. It has features like a 3.4x optical zoom lens, a large 2.5-inch LCD enhanced face detection technology.
