Canon PowerShot A530

Moradian, REVIEW STREAM

  • Excerpt: The thing that immediately attracted me to the PowerShot A530 was its size. Ordinarily, small cameras are fairly expensive, usually between two and three hundred dollars, but I found this one on amazon for $170. It fits in your pocket easily, and takes surprisingly good pictures. Its 5 megapixel resolution is quite good enough for most anyone’s purposes, allowing you to blow your pictures up to the size of a small poster without much loss of quality, and its 4x zoom is...

  • Excerpt: The Cannon Powershot A530 takes beautiful photos. It is easy to use, easy to move pictures from the camera to computer, and the software takes the guess work out of how to get it where it needs to go. Even my mother was able to use it successfully which says a lot about how easy it is to use, but it still has those extra features for the more experienced user. You can set it on auto and take your shot with ease, or you can set it any way you like.

  • Excerpt: The Cannon PowerShot A530 is a preety good camera. It is easy to use. I wish it had a more powerful optical zoom. Some of the pictures look so far away. The night shot feature is terrible. Everytime I use it it looks like I moved. Pictures are blurry. I like that it has one touch to transfer pictures to you computer. And to erase a picture it is super simple. Over all I like my camera, just wish that it had a better zoom.

Confusing at first but be patient and you'll be thrilled.

  • Excerpt: There are loads of little icons on the Canon Power Shot A530 screen and menu that can be confusing and overwhelming at first if you're not savvy about cameras but once you get the hang of it...it's easy as pie!!!  I love how my pictures come out and all of the options I have once I transfer them to my computer.  I can get "artsy" and even get goofy with the cartoon option.  The kids love that too because we can print them out and they can then color them.

Canon A530 is a very longlasting camera!

  • Excerpt: I love my Canon A530. This camera has lasted me almost 5 years now. I bought it primarily for the cost, and the fact that it was one of few cameras with an actual viewfinder. I have found in outdoor light sometimes the display screens on digital cameras are hard to see, so you do not know what you are taking a picture of. This camera has an actual viewfinder to remedy that problem. It has digital and optical zoom, which I think are both very good quality.

  • Excerpt: the canon powershot A530 is a great point-and-shoot digital camera, perfect for someone with moderate to no digital camera experience. start-up is very fast as is the processing, allowing for repeated shots to be taken seconds after taking it out of your pocket or purse (either of which it should fit into without much trouble). the resolution is quite high; shots can easily be blown up to 8x11 without a loss in quality.

  • Excerpt: I love the quality of pictures with lots of details and beautiful, live colors. Camera is easy to use, you don't need the manual to figure things out just play with icons which are self-explainable. Download to the computer takes a while but it's easy too and it is compatible with many programs so the computer is able to read the device attached to it. One downside is: you will bankrupt on batteries so better but the rechargeable ones.
