  • Summary: The Canon Powershot A495 isn’t going to turn you into the next David Bailey. But if you're on a limited budget but want pictures that don’t look like they’ve been taken with a Fisher Price toy shooter, then this is ideal. It has Canon’s sturdy build quality and plenty of decent shooting skills to recommend it. The number of shooting modes makes it every bit as good as some much pricier rivals.

Canon PowerShot A495 - Review

  • Excerpt: Available in three colors (blue, red and silver), Canon PowerShot A495 takes the place of A480 in the very populated world of entry-level cameras. In this type of cameras are requested three things: resistance, ease of use and decent photos for publication on the web. These are the 3 points that we considered in our tests to investigate this A495 for which the price is around € 100 approx. Specifications: official website .

  • Summary: My PowerShot A495 review reveals a camera that Canon is aiming at beginning photographers, as shown by the A495's feature set and MSRP ($129.99). For the most part, Canon has succeeded, as it has created a camera that's pretty easy for beginners to use with good entry-level photography features. It works especially well for shooting photos in outdoor lighting.
  • Pros: PowerShot A495 has nice, clean look, Startup is fast, Macro mode results are very good ... as long as flash is off, Results in outdoor lighting are outstanding, Low price is good for beginners
  • Cons: LCD is small and not as sharp as I'd like to see, LCD can be tough to see in bright sunlight, Movie mode could be better, A built-in "help" mode would be good for beginners, Shutter lag can be a problem in low light

  • Excerpt: The Canon A495 is a new budget compact, following in the footsteps of the mighty A480. But does it live up to the prestige of its previous model?

  • Excerpt: Canon's Powershot A495 is a compact, entry-level model that has been designed to be as easy to use as possible.  This simple camera comes packed with features like a 10-Megapixel imaging sensor, Digic III processor, Smart Auto shooting mode and Canon's Face Detect Self-Timer; just in case you thought simple meant less. All of your framing and viewing of your images is done on the camera's 2.5-inch LCD screen.

  • Summary: A small, easy to use and reasonably priced camera from a maker who does lots of more expensive units both pocket and DSLR unit. Every maker has to have something at the lower end of the market both in price and functionality.

  • Excerpt: Announced in tandem with the A490 model - an exclusive with the Argos retail chain in the UK - is the more widely available PowerShot A495, likewise an affordable snapshot option at a manufacturer's suggested £119.99. The budget price means that there's always the sense of 'bridesmaid but never the bride' about the lower end of the PowerShot range compared with the shinier, more stylish and inevitably pricier IXUS series, among which a similar feature set can be found...

Canon PowerShot A495 camera review

Pocket Lint
23 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Compacts at the lower end of the PowerShot range's pricing scale have always been the poor relations of those from the flashier IXUS brand. That said the gap seems to be narrowing. At a manufacturer's suggested price of £139.99 just £50 separates this 10-megapixel, 3.3x optical zoom model and the simultaneously announced 12-megapixel, 4x zoom IXUS 105 . That said the A495 doesn't feature built-in image stabilisation like its pricier sibling.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, easy to use point and shoot operation with image quality comparable to pricier IXUS models, sharing sensors of the same dimensions
  • Cons: AA batteries provided don't last as long as a fully charged rechargeable lithium ion pack, plastic-y build
