  • Summary: After several sessions with the instructions and considerable trial and error I got use to basic use of this camera. Its not exactly the old Brownie point and shoot but you can get basically good shots with a good deal of patience.

  • Summary: This is a very good quick and easy digital camera. I have since bought a DSLR but find when I go for walks I just grab this and the photos come out great. Fits right into a coat pocket.

  • Excerpt: I recently purchased the Canon Power Shot A480 and truley love the simplicity and size of this camera. It has all the features that most other cameras of a larger size have and is simple to use. The cababilites of downloading photographs and the ability to share and print from you personal PC make this a must have item.

  • Excerpt: Basically, the camera is great, with sharp photos, good colors and easy to use.  The only problem I see is the battery compartment because you have to tape it to keep it closed.  Out of two cameras we've used, both had the same problem at the bottom, keeping the batteries in and power on.

The Canon PowerShot A495 could do better

  • Excerpt: For the price of this camera, the picture quality is pretty amazing most of the time, but it gets really frustrating to use sometimes. To use this camera, you must hold it with a steady hand in order to take pictures that do not blur. There is also an annoying clicking noise that it constantly makes when it is focusing.This is not a camera that you can continously take pictures with.

'Easy to use'

9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I really like using this camera (Point and Shoot Digital Camera: Canon PowerShot A495 Digital Camera easy to use with good pictures taken every time.) It is light enough such that I carry it in my front shirt pocket or vest pocket. It has a processor like those in Canon's high end Digital SLR (DSLR); but this is a point and shoot camera with a large view finder easy to read; though not on bright sunny days (though the screen image is adjustable which I have not...

  • Excerpt: I use my Canon Powershot all the time. It takes great pictures and great videos. It is pretty cheap so you don't have to spend an arm and a leg buying a camera that takes great pictures. It is small and fits easily in your pockets, and it's a canon so you knw it is great quality and it is dependable when you need a camera that will work at the right time. This will make it easy to keep and share the favorite moments of your kids and family from their childhood.

  • Summary: Instead of buying the newer, much more expensive Canon Powershot, I went with this one. And I'm so happy with it. Takes great pictures, is small, and didn't cost me all that much. Yay!

a bargain

S. Iverson, Amazon

  • Summary: I took this camera out to the desert and submitted it to a week of very dusty, harsh conditions. I bought the camera because a) it was pretty cheap and well reviewed b)it uses AA batteries so I wouldn't need to charge in the wild c) the size was acceptable With a good set of rechargeables the camera easily met the factory claims for pictures. The start-up is a bit long, but that was fine. Video does produce a reasonable quality product, but the compression algo.
