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 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.
Excellent product with superior macro, and convenient AA batteries

Summary: Pros: the macro function that goes to 1 cm (0.4 inches) from the object. There is only a handful point and shoot camera that can do it. I take many close-ups, and I can say that when it comes to macro shooting, this camera can beat many other expensive cameras. Also this camera uses 2 AA batteries, which comes in handy when your rechargeable batteries run out while you are traveling. It is light weight, small, thus very easy to carry around.
