Excerpt: I hate spending a lot of digital cameras only for the simple fact that they go out of date so fast. I bought this one less than a year ago with the 7.1 mega pixels and now they have 10 mega pixels out. I loved that it took pictures really fast. There wasn't a delay and you got the picture you actually wanted. Now it is very slow and I most often than not miss my intended picture. It also eats batteries like crazy.
Excerpt: I have owned the Canon Powershot A470 camera for a little over a year now. I like that it is small and pretty compact. I actually carry it constantly in my diaper bag or purse. I especially like the large screen so that I can see the pictures better than on my previous smaller camera. It is easy to delete pictures, go back and view pictures, and zoom in. It did not take me long to learn how to use this camera.
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. I have tried to take pictures of my kids playing in the yard and pictures usually come out blurry. Also, there is a bit of a lag time for the picture to be taken.
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. OTHERWISE I REALLY DON'T SEE ANY OTHER REASON TO COMPLAIN.
Summary: this camera eats batteries, i found the controls/settings a bit confusing and i'm reasonablied experianced with cameras,it's fairly bulky for a compact camera.it takes fairly good pics,but theres better cameras out there around the same money.
Summary: Ja, die Canon macht qualitativ anständige Fotos. Die Bedienung ist einfach und viel Spaß mach der SuperMacro-Modus. Allerdings löst die Kamera viel zu langsam aus. Das Motiv ist lange weg, bevor die Kamera sich rührt. Das macht sie als Kamera für schnelle Partyfotos eher ungeeignet. Außerdem frisst sie Batterien. Ich glaube auch, dass das mit dem Batterienfraß eine kleine Altersschwäche der Kamera ist. Ich habe sie mittlerweile 5 Jahre und fotografiere oft damit.
