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.

Easy to use

  • Excerpt: It took me a long time to finally purchase a digital camera, and I am so glad I chose the canon powershot A470 as my first one. My kids had been trying to talk me into switching from those disposable cameras to a digital forever. Now that I have my canon powershot; I regret not buying one sooner. I love it! It's simple to use even for a technically challenged person like myself. I couldn't believe how easy it was to even shoot a video of my son's play.

Good basic cam .

  • 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.

I like the detail of the high pixels

  • Excerpt: I owned a Canon PowerShot A400 and loved it. It got damaged and I upgraded to this camera. The nice thing was that the detail in megapixels increased, but the quality of the detail when zooming and taking photos at night decreased. This camera is less user-friendly than the A400. The buttons/controls on the back have to be used more. You have to push the Function Set button to switch between moving up and down and zooming in and out. It's annoying.

Canon Power Shot .. a new ay to shoot.

  • Excerpt: When shopping with my husband for a new digital camera we decided to go with Canon. Even though they didn't offer some of the frills that the other brands used to seduce you into buying their product we selected the Canon Power shot because they stand behind thier product.Having owned previous  computer related items from them before we learned first hand that if their is a problem call the manufacturer. Trust me when I say that Canon stands behind their product!

Canon PowerShot 7.1

  • Summary: I happen to own 4 digital cameras at this price point and with similar specs. They are Basic point and shoots from the makers: Sony, Nikon, HP, and the Canon. My canon has the highest mgpix, but only by 2 over the rest. I have not enlarged photos off the canon, but would expect a slightly sharper print. Pictures on my monitor from it are very nice quality. There is little shortage with menu for this price range camera.

"Canon PowerShot A470"

  • Pros: Takes nice quality pictures. As far as it being noisy, it is a bit noisy when you turn it on, and when you adjust the lens, but i didn't think it was bad at all.
  • Cons: I don't think its heavy at all, but of course it isn't a really slim camera either.

  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot A470 digital camera is probably not the best one on the market, but it’s good enough.
  • Pros: Takes good photographs, (limited) video capabilities, mine came with a free printer.
  • Cons: Bulky, fragile parts, not very intuitive.
