Not worth retail value

Anon, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this camera when Amazon had it for $50. For $50, it got the job done. Overall, it feels very cheaply built, and the pictures are not that great quality. Even though it has the MP's, it's the sensor that counts, and that's what I feel is lacking. The batteries were also a pain.

  • Summary: This is a fine camera for a teenage girl. We purchased this as a gift for our daughters birthday and it has held up very well to the challenge.

Good as a 2nd camera for mobile purposes

  • Summary: This camera is small and neat. Although it's a 10MP it doesn't shoot that clearly. The flash has to charge which is a bit frustrating since it means long waits between shots. Convenient to carrry around because of it's size, so it's great as a 2nd (in case of emergency) camera.

Do not expect this camera to deliver DSLR-like output

  • Summary: I bought this camera with gold box deal for only $49. For that price, this is quite good camera. However, it has some weak points, you have to consider before buying. For reference, I'll be comparing this camera to my 5 year old Fujifilm Z5FD.

Pleased with camera.

  • Summary: Satisfied with purchase of this Canon camera. It's very basic, easy to use, small & light weight, and the picture quality is better than average. I was looking for something like this so I didn't always have to carry around my bigger 35mm camera.

  • Summary: I have to say this before anything else - this is a $100 camera. You get what you pay for. The good: It's 10M Pixels It's $100. Takes nice pictures (in good light). AA batteries. Fits in my hand very well. The "Auto" mode makes it easy.

  • Excerpt: Покупался он год назад, может чуть меньше, с целью просто так - пофоткать. Сто раз выдавал ошибку объектива, потом вообще отключился, и 3 дня не включался. Сейчас я сильно увлеклась фотографией, и подумала, что нужно переходить на новый уровень, и ближе к сентябрю хочу купить зеркальный Canon EOS...
  • Pros: Начнём с того, что PowerShot A490 сам по себе хорош. Автофокус, яркие цвета... Дизайн...Дизайн - ну так себе, ничего особенного. Если честно, больше достоинств не нашла.
  • Cons: 10.0 мега - пикселей. Вот, по моему мнению самый ГЛАВНЫЙ недостаток, а так - кому как. Если честно, мыльница не очень впечатлила, а так, если почитать достоинства - автофокус, яркие цвета, то для пожилых людей, которым фотик нужен что бы просто фотографировать - вполне. (Нет, нет, не подумайте, я...
