Summary: ***NOTE: Canon has once again upgraded its A-series of compact digital cameras for 2007. I have upgraded to the outstanding A570IS, which adds optical image stabilization, lower noise, and a better LCD.
Summary: I began, years back, with Canon's Powershot A20 2MP), then promoted myself up to the A70 (3.2MP) about two year ago. Three days ago, I received my newest self-indulgence: the new Powershot A540 (6MP).
Summary: My three year old digital (2 MP) camera's battery door broke (pretty cheap plastic) and the search was on for a more modern camera. My daughter recently got a very small slim Canon and I was impressed with the features and quality.

Summary: This little camera was my first digital. It was the quality of the on line samples that convinced me. The colors are true to life, not that pastel look. This is what I've been looking for. A digital point and shoot that renders true colors. It has a very good clear view finder.

Excerpt: I bought this camera about three years ago. It was very cheap but still has good function. It is working just fine. However, as many sophisticated digital camera are invented recently, this camera seems a little bit outdated. When you use zoom in and are ready to take a …

Excerpt: I used Canon PowerShot A540 digital camera in my photography hobby for almost three years now. I am not a professional photographer and I don’t have much budget to sustain this little hobby thing of mine. So, when I decided to change my old and traditional film camera, the …

Summary: First let me say, that this was my third Canon Powershot Digital camera in 3 years, and in general, I prefer Canon above all other brands in terms of the quality of their cameras, and the photos I've been able to take with them.
