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: 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.
Summary: This camera takes nic photos.....easy to use and carry around and I have always had Canon cameras and think they are worth the money.... This camera is very user-friendly and simple to operate.
