Summary: I have 5 Cannon cameras, two of which are the A540. This model has a grip type shape and is easy to hold especially for the longer type picture taking. It is light and easy to use, Much simpler than my Cannon Rebel XT which is larger, heavier, and much more complicated and difficult to learn.
This is an overall awesome camera, may be ideal for the typical Ebay busine

Summary: This is my favorite camera for use in my Ebay business. It is the right size for my rather large hands. It has a big clear screen. The focusing functions are easy to adjust for large to very small items. It is very durable, a workhorse of a camera.
Summary: This is an old camera now, but it has some advantages. The picture quality is decent. AA battery power allows incredible shooting time compared to most modern cameras. Finally, this camera works really well with CHDK. You can lock focus, blank the screen for all day timelapses without any need for external battery power, all sorts of things work great with this camera. Still worth it's weight!
Good point-and-shoot camera. Better than some newer models.

Summary: Yes, there are newer cameras on the market with some improved features, but many of them lack a viewfinder and many of them have lower picture quality. I hunted on ebay for a used A540 to replace my previous A540 because I was happy with what I had.
Tough little camera, will fight, on your side, for a good picture <:-)

Summary: I cheated on this purchase, I already had one of these cameras and loved it soooo much I used E-bay to find annother. I put 5yrs of hard, make that tortous use,on my original Canon Sure Shot A540. I used pictures taken with it, to built a couple of websites, abusively tossing it around at Vintage MX races I competed in, and then posted stories about, on my website and it never missed a beat.I took Action,close-up,group stills and even action video with my A540 and it did...
Summary: This camera has proved outstanding for our travels. It has a view finder which means less loss of battery. It uses AA batteries which are easy to find or carry with you. And it is compact so my wife and I can each carry one and record what we consider a good shot.
you want a camera that is easy to use and takes the clearest pictures buy!

Summary: this is a great camera. i bought this to replace one i had . but i was disapointed to find out that the battery door is broken i didnt notice when i first took it out of the box. it was not in the description when i bought it so please look the camera over really good... but as for the camera it is so easy to use and it is worth every penny .... i have bought other cameras in between replacing this one but i compared them all to this one.
Summary: Easy to shop on Ebay. You can look at several models and then go to the internet and do a review of what you see and then decide what items you want to purchase. Camera was a gift for my son and it seems to work okay, quality of the pics are not what as good as I thought they would be. I shop Ebay quite often.
