bad camera

Michael G., Newegg
14 November 2006
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this camera, but that lag was just way too frustrating. I suggest going to a couple of stores and trying out the camera, I wish I had.
  • Pros: I want a camera that goes "click" in a reasonable period of time after I press the button. This camera was not that camera. Indoors the camera had a lag of around 2.5 seconds. This would be great if I knew the future, then I could hit the button in time to save precious moments. Also, the lag bet...
  • Cons: Everything else was good. Good feel, good controls, really good pictures, good functionality of the movie mode.

Don't buy if you have kids

  • Summary: I have a 10 month old and wanted an inexpensive camera that would hold me over until I could get an D-SLR camera. The lag when indoors between when the button is pressed and the time the picture is way way way too long. This is reduced outdoors, making it bearable.

Great for outdoors; flash is a showstopper!

  • Summary: I've had this camera since March 2006. Bought it to replace my venerable 2.1MP Oly C2040. Wife wanted a smaller camera (the Oly got left behind a lot simply because it was so bulky), and liked the feel of the A530.

Total enttäuscht...

Jacker, Amazon
27 February 2007
  • Summary: Ich hatte vorher eine Powershot A70 und war von der Kamera total begeistert. Mit 4 Batterien lange Laufzeit und superschnelle Auslösezeit.... Nach ein paar Jahren dachte ich es wird Zeit für was Neues. Die A70 der Tochter vererbt und die neue A530 gekauft.
