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: Hello Everyone! I own this little Canon Powershot A470 digital camera and it is just wonderful! It takes the best pictures, even if you are NOT a whiz with all the new fangled digital items on the market today! I bought this camera because of the simple ease of using it! Yes, I AM one of those who do not know or keep up with the latest trends, but, I do love taking pictures. This Canon camera has all that you will need in the way of settings and even point and shoot.
Summary: For the price you would expect less than half the capabilities the Canon SuperShot A470 gives! The movies are far above what you'd expect from a camera in this price range. I've used this camera to create music video for my songs for publishing on sites to promote my music. The still images are simply awesome.
Pros: I have had this for more than a year now. I have taken more than a thousand shots with it. My favorite feature is the super macro. It lets me get right inside a flower and get a nice shot of the stamens and pistils.
Cons: Can't think of any. It is a Canon so what else can I say.
