  • Excerpt: Note ratings are for its day. I bought it in 1999, about 6 mo after it was introduced, used it quite a bit for a couple of years, but image quality just wasn't good enough for many purposes. It then spent several years in a lab used as a microscope camera, image quality was good enough for that.

  • Excerpt: I just realized that I have not learned how to use this camera properly during the five years of ownership, that is, not until now. I have been taking pictures in fine JPEG mode (which is reflected in my 4.0 rating), but the only way to exploit this camera's full power is by taking pictures in RAW...

  • Excerpt: Sold this camera a while back - it was my first digicam - I wish I never sold it. Built like a tank - battery lasts FOREVER it seems like. Nice images considering the small number of pixels. 4x6 prints look great.

  • Excerpt: Excellent all metal body, very tough, looking good. I post this opinion after a long period of ownership. During the last three years I had a lot of different Cams, but I won't ever sell this PowerShot A50. It's something to keep. If you are looking for one and find a goof offer - take it.

  • Excerpt: Excellent and rugged camera for point-and-shoot use. Extremely reliable, with generally clear focus and color rendition. I used one of these for a couple of years, and I was sad to part with it when I upgraded to a Canon G2. Problems: Focus can be fooled by light backgrounds. No external flash sync.

  • Excerpt: I've owned this camera for 2 years now and been very happy with it. The construction is superb, although this makes it a little heavy for a compact digicam. The features are good but this is still a point and shoot camera. The image quality is also very good for this generation of 1.3MP cameras.

  • Excerpt: I won this camera in a photo contest. It is my first and only digicam. I probably would have given it higher ratings when it first came out, but in comparision with the latest technology improvements it is showing its gray hairs. Construction is actually fairly robust, with a classy metal case.

  • Excerpt: I've had this camera for over 2 years. For a 1.2 mega pixel camera the picture quality was very high. However, if you are thinking of buying a used one, read "problems". In summary, it was a great introduction to the advantages of digital photography.

  • Excerpt: I have used my A50 for more than two years now and I consider to by a new one but I can't find a better camera for the same money. Eaven if i pay 50% more I got the same quality exept that the pixels are more. Do I really need more pixel? Is it worth $800 to have 3 Mpixel?

  • Excerpt: Compact, simple and fairly robust. Image quality is good. Pocketable. The styling, size and construction appealed to me. They are discontinued now. Took a lot of good pics with mine, it taught me about digital photography.
