  • 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!

Capture the moments

  • 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.

It takes good pictures if you know how to use it right.

  • Excerpt: As a basic camera, for taking family photos and some scenery, it does well. But if you're into wildlife photography, but you can't get get very close to the animals in their natural habitat AND have good lighting, you need a better camera. I love it and would keep it even if I had another, better camera, but there's still things that just don't work well with it. It doesn't work with all subjects of photography.

  • Excerpt: The Powershot A520 is a 4.0 mega pixel camera with very many features for the amount I payed for it. Its a little bulky in comparison to most cameras nowadays but would I would still recommend it. Check out the entire Powershot series for some amazing cameras.

Durable digital camera.

  • Excerpt: The camera is small and light weight. Easy to use. Is durable. Worth the money spent. It does have delay in taking the picture which is not always good. But the camera itself is a good buy. The pictures normally turn out clear. Comes with software that helps you create a picture album. It is only 4.0 megapixels though. All I could afford at the time.

  • 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.

It drains batteries!

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera after I had owned an older model Power Shot camera.  I was thoroughly satisfied with my previous model.  This new and improved model was a little smaller than the last but quickly taught me "if it ain't broke - don't fix it."  I should have kept my older model.  This camera does take nice pictures but will drain your batteries.  We had brand new, fully charged rechargable lithium batteries and put them in the camera to use them.
