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

divainhouston, Ebay
4 December 2011
  • 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.

A530 lens problems

John from Ontario, Amazon
27 August 2008
  • Summary: I have had the camera about 4 months. It is now in for repair for the second time with the e18 error. This error stops the lens from going in and out correctly. When the camera works it works fine and is easy to use, but for me the camera has been in 1/3 of the time I owned it. I had a A520 before updating and it also broke. I have had cameras for years and never had a repair until these 2. I am very nervous about the powershot series now.

Nice Little Camera

Kasey Sabin, Amazon
11 January 2007
  • Summary: First, the pros: This camera packs a lot of nice features into a small box with easy to use buttons and a small price tag. As a rule I've found that blurriness/darkness/brightness/etc. tend to be the photographer's fault much more than the cameras, and if you use the camera a lot and get familiar with the controls you can generally find a way to take care of the problem.

A bit of a disappointment

John F., Amazon
14 March 2007
  • Summary: Not sure what's going on here to be honest. I've had two of these and both have exhibited a very similar characteristic when using the flash indoors. Taking indoor pictures using the flash shows evidence of the same darkish static uneven banding on pictures which is more apparent on uniformly coloured backgrounds. The illumination using the flash unit is therefore somewhat uneven.

Cheap but not chic

Debby McGregor "Dubs", Amazon
12 June 2006
  • Summary: Tested this before handing them out in the office. Difficult to hold, my thumb strayed over the menu options to often. 7 seconds waiting for the flash to reset. Loads of settings but would you use them, video good, Zoom lens not, couldn't read a number plate in the car park outside. Personally i wouldn't buy it.

Kamerabewertung

Peter Schenk, Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: Als Besitzer einer Canon PowerShot A570 IS wollte ich meiner Mutter etwas Gutes tun und Ihr ein ähnliches Model zur Verfügung stellen. Die vom Händler als "Kamera mit leichten Kratzern auf dem Display" ausgewiesene Kamera erwies sich als vermutlich stark benutztes Teil. Es waren weder 4 Akkus dabei noch eine Tasche für die Kamera, auf der beigefügten SD Karte waren von alte Privatfotos gespeichert, Die Kratzer waren nicht leichter Natur, der Umschalter zum Foto anschauen...
