Canon Powershot A530 is HORRIBLE for indoor shots

  • Excerpt: This camera takes nice pictures outside, but that is pretty much all you can say for it. It takes okay snapshots if you are standing a ways away from your subject. However, if you are taking a photo of someone's face it rarely focuses well. The auto focus confuses itself and spazzes out, or it selects the wrong thing to focus on.

Canon a530 not as solid as a cannon

  • Excerpt: I heard a lot about Cannon Powershots from my brother and his friends. I owned one earlier than this model and was looking forward to an upgrade. When I purchased this one, I enjoyed its simplicity and easy-to-use interface. It was ok on the actual pictures and could not zoom in from very far but I intially overlooked those problems in th early years.

  • Summary: Spend alittle more for a better model of this camera. Canon releases at least 3 - 5 newer versions almost every 3 months.
  • Pros: Great picture quality and lightweight.
  • Cons: Low battery life and camera has a glitch.

  • Summary: En este dia voy a tener que hablar sobre esta tremenda maquina la cual es muy bonita pero en mi eeriencia tuve varios problemas con ella, quizas es porque yo tuve la malasuerte de coger las mismas de als tiendas estando ya con una falla! En primera medida el zoom no me andaba esta la habia comprado a un precio de 650 pesos argentino pero la verdad es que me senti muy friustrado! La maquina en si (funcionando como deberia) es mas que util y practica!!
  • Pros: esteticamente bonita
  • Cons: no andaba nada cuando la compre !  que mal comienzo !  y cuando la cambie tampooco andaba
