works well under daylight, otherwise poor performance

  • Summary: This is one of those cameras you won't be excited when you move from 35mm film cameras into digital world. Noise is horrible. I mean I can see noise even at lowest 50 ISO setting while using flash. I am silent about other higher setting. Yellowish tint.

Good design yet poor production quality

  • Summary: This is my fourth digital camera. I am happy with the right amount of features packed in a small package. The quality of the pictures turned out to be reasonable for this type of camera. The real disappointment was the quality of assembly.

Canon....I'm disappointed

GadgetGuy, Amazon

  • Summary: First, let me start by saying I have owned two Canon digital cameras prior to this one, and have loved them both. I bought the A520 to replace the S200 that I've used for about 3 years. The S200 wasn't extremely fast, but it wasn't slow either.

Great Camera, but very fragile

B. Koenig, Amazon

  • Summary: I used Canon digital cameras for the last 5 years. I decided to step up from a model A60 to A520. What a mistake! The picture quality is still very good, functionality is also very good. So what is wrong with it?

A great camera with some major downfalls.

S. Halberg, Amazon

  • Summary: I was really excited to get this camera because all of the features it has, and it has a ton. I liked the feel of the camera in my hand, though the camera itself is smaller than I would have liked. Still, the controls were easy to access, and the weight of it felt good in my hand.

Hängender Objektivverschluss, Batteriefresser

  • Summary: Auf einer Urlaubsreise konnten wir gar nicht genügend Batterien heranschaffen, wie diese Digitalkamera Appetit hatte. Wahrscheinlich hat das Raus- und Reinfahren des Objektivs sehr viel Energie gekostet.

  • Summary: He comprado la A 520 y al os 12 días la he tenido que devolver porque el objetivo se ha encasquillado y tampoco cerraba bien la cortinilla, antes del desastre he efectuado 55 fotos y tengo amplia experiencia con las camaras tradicionales si biene no es así con digitales.

einmal und nie wieder....

SKAlala, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Nachdem mir die Canon im MakroMarkt Hamburg vom Verkäufer ans Herz gelegt wurde und ich hier auch nur positives gelesen hatte entschied ich mich die Canon Powershot 520 A zu kaufen, da ich meine alte Kamera die Fuji Finepix A210 für veraltet hielt (was sie ja im Grunde auch ist) Doch die Entäuschung...
  • Pros: gute Preis, handliche Größe, gute Bildqualität, viele verschiedene Programmpunkte
  • Cons: ewig lange Auslöseverzögerung, sehr langsamer Autofokus
