Summary: THIS IS WRITTEN FOR CLUELESS PHOTOG DUMMIES LIKE ME- IF YOU ARE NOT CLUELESS, SKIP THIS REVIEW! Got this camera last year, knowing only a few of the most basic features to look for, & having satisfied those criteria, chose based upon availability, price, comfort/convenience (lightweight, has a wrist...
Summary: I checked out the digital cameras in several stores as to which is the best at close ups (macro shots) and the A520/A530 were the best (heard the A510 is the same but didnt try it). Nothing else compared to the A520/A530 really.
Summary: I got my first digital camera in 2001: a Canon PowerShot A10, with 1.3 MP. Miraculously enough, it still works beautifully, and the image quality is still superior to many other digital cameras on the market. As an upgrade, and because I began to print my own images, I received the A520 as a gift.
Summary: Initially I wonted to buy a 6-7 mp digital camera, but I liked it, the pictures are so clear and nice, I had alot of fun with it, it is so easy to operate it, in fact I it recommend for every body.

Summary: I tell ya, every time I use this camera I am happy I bought it. I have yet to learn more about it, so in a nutshell a new-comer to the digital camera world can operate this immediately. It has become my new toy. Downloading the pictures on the computer is a snap and they are terrific.
Summary: I purchased the Canon Powershot A520 4MP Digital Camera for a family member to replace an older, Nikon 2MP unit, which was passed down. The Cannon pictures simply blew away those made from the older, Nikon unit.
Summary: I have had this camera for a month now and absolutely love it. Totally delivers! I have found it just like the other reviews describe it - very intuitive manual controls, great picture quality, light weight - great value for money. With 4MP, prints come out really great. Video mode is decent.

Summary: First of all, let me explain to you why I narrowed it down to two Canon digital Cameras. After extensive research on the net looking at prices and reviews, I really thought that their wasn't a camera for me, one that I would be happy with.
