  • Excerpt: I've had this camera for a while. It's sturdy and the screen is large. It's easy to hook up to the computer to save your phoos. I have been a loyal canon camera customer since 2003. They make a good product and keep the camera functions consistant from model to model.

  • Excerpt: We have had this camera for about 3 years and have gotten lots of great use out of it and am so glad that we have it.  I will continue to use it until it dies or until we have the money to buy a newer more advanced camera. As we all know technology changes so quickly and advances so quickly that what we paid $200 for 3 years ago is now old/obsolete. This camera is very easy to use.  Just point and shoot.

Decent camera since the price is right.

  • Excerpt: I chose the Canon Power Shot A530 for my first digital camera, primarily because I trusted the Canon brand and the price was affordable for an amatuer first-time camera. So far, I have been pleased with its performance (for 5 years). It is easy to use, intuitive, and has all the basic needs for simple, day-to-day photography. There are a few cons, however, that I will definitely take into account if I ever purchase another point-and-shoot camera.

Not as good as I'd hoped it would be...But OK to start off with.

  • Summary: When I first bought this, I really thought that being a Canon I couldn't go wrong...Wrong! It's a bit bigger than expected, hard to figure out, the flash is not your friend, the screen is tiny, and EVERY time you try to look at a picture you took all kinds of picture options (I'm assuming) hang on the screen, making the picture even smaller, and harder to see than it already was. I paid roughly $40 for it w/shipping.

"It's alright I suppose."

  • Pros: Takes pretty good photo quality. Quite a few options to tinker around with your photos. Has a raised edge that proves a nice grip when you're taking pictures. Upload speed is very fast. Takes AA's.
  • Cons: Provided memory card does not allow for many pictures. Uses up battery juice VERY quickly. Zoom's jog dial is frustrating if you're trying to get the picture juuust right. Screen is pretty small and it and the lens are prone to smudges.
