Summary: I bought it because I have grandbabies and I was looking for a good camera. I went out on the internet and searched for a good camera, so many said that this kind was a great starter. I love it, it was well kept up and I'm taking lots and lots of pictures of my 2 grandbabies.
Fine for a lower end Canon point and shoot - poor image quality
21 June 2011
Summary: Pros: - 2 AA powers this - Inexpensive - Runs CHDK well Cons - Image quality not up to what I am looking for - Manual control not sufficient (CHDK can improve this a little) This is a fine lower end Canon point and shoot camera.
Summary: I love this camera for its ease of use and for its ability to take photos and video in less than ideal lighting conditions. It gives excellent quality for both sound and video, but the video clips are only for a few minutes, which is the only negative.
Summary: Bought this to replace an A450 for a friend. Slightly higher megapixel (7.1) and takes pretty good video. No image stablization tho' which is probably the handiest thing invented for cameras in the last century.
Summary: I'd rate this camera Excellent for the price -- But I give it a good overall. I bought this cameera for my daughter who is in High School and she loves it. The quality of the picture is outstanding and the camera is very easy to use.
Summary: Great compact dependable camera which is capable of taking both high quality photos and videos. I use my Cannonn A550 from every day photography to taking still shots on filming locations. Trusty handy camera!
