Summary: sorry I was so happy with it I completely forgot to let everyone else know. Camera is fantastic, price was fantastic, all the materials WITH the camera was fantastic and time receiving was fantastic.
Summary: good for kids or people learning. The price is right if they drop it you are not out hundreds of dollars. On the other hand it is not near professional grade. I was not able to take close ups without them turning out blurry. The camera is light weight and easy to use.
Excerpt: I think Canon has made a niche in Digital cameras. CanonA 520 has a very good picture quality with 5x optical zoom. The LCD screen is also very good. The different picture options and function to adjust the lightning conditions are some great features. The menu is simple and its easy to transfer photos to computer for future storage. The battery life is also good compared to other digital cameras I have used before.I am also impressed with its video quality.
Excerpt: This camera was recommended to me by a friend who does amateur photography. I wanted an easy to use digital camera that gives quality pics. This camera fills the bill. Simple point and shoot use, as well as takes short videos. I've used this camera alot during our house hunting.
Excerpt: Canon PowerShot A520 is the best camera I have owned. Simple yet high quality pictures. The software is a little "querky" but does the job. Good on batteries and a great zoom feature. The only drawback is the year you have to wait when taking a picture, need to shoot a dozen to get a good action shot!
Excerpt: I have had the Canon PowerShot A520 for two years and it has been a wonderful tool for capturing my most special moments. This camera is wonderful. It takes beautiful pictures! The only problem that I've found with this camera is the fact that the lense collects dirt and grime and will often have trouble opening, causing the E18 error. Just take care of your camera and clean it often and you'll be set for any occassion.
Canon Power Shot A520 - great one to have for work and play.

Excerpt: This camera has been a great one for my work. It is easy to use, small enough to put in my pocket. Once in a while though, the button to turn it on, is hard to push - you really have to get a fingernail pushing hard. But all in all, the zoom is works great and for a smail camera has a lot to offer. The pictures are clear when they show up on the computer. I recommend it highly.
