Summary: Modern digital cameras offer more pixels but this one can make pics printable at A3 size, which is good enough for me. I bought this for my wife, actually, because it is a good camera and easy to use, but you can grow into it, if you get more serious. I found one like it at an estate sale and bought it for $2.50 because it had no shutter button. No problem. I repaired it and found that I had a really nice camera for next to nothing.
Summary: I have owned this camera for several years and have been very pleased with it. Now I own a DSLR camera and am studying professional photography. As I compare both cameras I realize that my Canon Powershot is really great for its purpose. I have stretched the bounds of any point-and-shoot camera. I definitely recommend this one.
Awesome! I have a love affair with this wonderful camera :)

Summary: I purchased this camera 8 years ago, mainly I liked it for the flip screen which enables me to capture certain angles for floral photography. I was a beginner then and it was very easy to use. WOW, I now wish I had 3 of these as I dread the day this camera wears out as it has so many wonderful easy to use features. I especially like that it uses AA batteries..
Excerpt: I have a BenQ DC1500, but then I wanted a more powerful camera. I needed some requirements (SD card, 2" LCD, etc) and I asked a photographer friend of mine. The Canon Powershot A610 fulfills my needs and more! Now I have a camera that I can use in "family" situations (birthdays, etc) and take some arty pictures as well! (Which was unexpected for me). Thank you, Canon!!!
Very good camera, It's lower pixel count may not be for everyone

Summary: This product was bought to be used as a diving camera with underwater housing. I is proving to be a very capable camera. I has the typical Canon quality and more features that I will need for the intended purpose. The pictures are very sharp and clear, even underwater. I would recommend this camera to a friend.
Summary: Absolutely love everything about this camera.Can't say enough.It is exactly what i wanted.Got a great deal.Simple and fun to use.Looked new although used.Fits my big hands perfect.I suggest this camera to anyone in the market for a point and shoot camera.I have slr cameras,you can't tell the difference in pics.
Summary: Great camera. I already had used one for 4 years and liked it so much I bought this one for use at work. It really has everything I need and some features that are not offered on comparably priced new cameras.
Summary: I have two of these cameras now... best point and shoot ever!! It's an older model, I think from 2006 but has 5 megapixels and has soo many features I sometimes discover new ones by accident. Uses 4x AAs batts, easy to hold, easy to use menu, swivel lcd panel is simply practical and makes taking pics a pleasure. My older model was showing signs of wear and I had to get another one recently...
