Summary: Amazing! One of the best cameras I've come across. There are two things that I love about this... One... the weight. It is a very light camera, convenient for trips or vacations of any kind. Two... the picture quality. Never have I EVER seen a camera shoot beautiful picturtes as good as this one. The quality is unbelievable. I would definitely recommend this.
Excerpt: My son turned 10 a week after Christmas and he wanted a camera. We didn't have a lot of time so we looked at inexpensive cameras on line and then went out to Target and Wal-mart. We set a price limit of $75.00 if possible. What we found was Canon - PowerShot A490 Digital Camera. * It was on sale under $70.00 but as we looked at the camera we realized it was much better than most of the more expensive cameras.
Excerpt: My daughter received the Power Sot A490 as a gift a few months ago. So far it has held up very well. It takes very clear pictures and is very easy to use. I like the fact that it takes regular batteries so that we don't have to remember to charge it up before using it. The batteries have really lasted and are very easy to change out. It comes with two cords so that if you don't have a card reader on your computer you can just plug it in to a USB port. I'm glad to...
Excerpt: I love that this camera has the ability to take multiple pictures at a time (particular setting). The picture quality is great with every picture taken, however, I have found that focusing on the subject is sometimes a problem. Takes amazing pictures outdoors and so so pictures at night. Battery life is outstanding, I know this is a problem for a lot of people with a lot of different cameras but this one seems to be amazing to me. Easy to load batteries too.
Excerpt: Takes good pictures. Ilike the fact that it uses aa batteries.Its compact and easy to use.The one thing I do not like about this camera is that when using the flash it takes around 10 to 15 seconds to recharge and am able to take another picture.
