Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
18 May 2007
  • Excerpt: Unlike most og the compact digital cameras on the market (which usually feature 3x optical zoom), this Canon A530 comes with 4x optical zoom . The LCD is smaller than the newer cameras, it lacks the Shutter and Aperture Priority, but, it does have a Manual Mode and other manual controls (like white balance, exposure, metering).

  • Conclusion: I'll make this short and simple, the A530 is a watered down A540 which sells at a lower price. Things like battery life and image quality are still good and the full manual mode is a plus. Performance was snappy too. Despite that, the A530 has no priority modes, a small LCD and mediocre movie mode. As an added insult, the A530 is incompatible with conversion lenses and the A540 is a better deal. My point here is, if you're looking at the A530, then go for the A540.
  • Pros: Nice 4x zoom lens, Good (not excellent) battery life, Full manual mode, Unlimited, fast continuous shooting, Fast performance, Produces good photos, low noise till ISO 400; ISO 800 useable for small prints, Affordable
  • Cons: Small LCD with low resolution, No priority modes; incompatible with conversion lenses, Overall performance could be faster and better; especially autofocus, Mediocre movie mode

Canon Powershot A530 Digital Camera Review

Digital Camera Review
24 July 2006
  • Excerpt: The Canon Powershot A530 is what I would call a compact digital camera. It will just fit into a shirt or pants pocket at 3.56 x 2.52 x 1.70 in (90.4 x 64.0 x 43.2 mm) and 6.00 oz (170 g). Add about an ounce and a half to this for the batteries. It captures images at several resolutions, up to 5MP, has the familiar Canon PIC-mode selection wheel, and a 1.8 in TFT color LCD. It sports a 5.8 - 23.2 mm lens with a variable aperture range of f/2.6 - f/5.5.

  • Conclusion: Considering the price of the Canon Powershot A530 I think it offers very good value for money. The camera is not perfect, but the picture quality is much better than most cameras in this price range are capable of producing. Throw in the manual exposure mode and the camera is well worth the money.
  • Pros: Picture quality, Value for money
  • Cons: Shutter lag, Red eye

  • Summary: Este modelo de cámara digital producido por la casa Canon ha despertado muchas expectativas, al principio las primeras cámaras salieron con un problema ya que no «arrastraba» de manera rápida la foto, no obstante a las pocas semanas se corrigió este problema y en la actualidad se encuentra funcionando muy bien.
