Canon PowerShot A630

Digital Photography Interface
7 September 2009
  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot A630 is a mid-sized camera which features 8 megapixels, a rotating 2.5 inch LCD and full manual controls. The A630 has great battery life, a nice grip with easy one hand operation, very good performance and even a custom option on the mode dial. I've got a few quirks about the A630 as well, though they are minor ones: the LCD has rather low resolution, there's no live histogram and unlike the entire camera which feels solid, the tripod mount is...
  • Pros: Excellent value for money, Long battery life with rechargeable batteries, Good ergonomics; custom option on mode dial, Large rotating LCD with good visibility, Full manual controls, Unlimited continuous shooting and great movie mode, Fast operation, Above average image quality with low noise
  • Cons: Low LCD resolution, No live histogram and plastic tripod mount, No movie focus or optical zoom, limited to 1 GB (about 8 minutes) per clip, Larger memory card and rechargeable batteries not included

Canon PowerShot A630 and A640 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
14 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Their design of these 2 digital cameras is user friendly and well-built, the pictures are great, and they’re easy to shoot. Comparing to A530 and A540 , A630 and A640 equips with Vari-angle 2.5 inch LCD screen that flips outward and rotates which allows users to take photos for themselves or some close up subjects much easier. At the highest size and finest mode you can see your subjects finest details and also obtain high quality A4 and A3 prints.

  • Excerpt: The PowerShot A630 and A640 are two lower priced cameras that offer the manual controls and expandability usually reserved for more expensive cameras. Both cameras feature 4X zoom lens, a rotating 2.5" LCD display, a VGA movie mode, and unlimited continuous shooting.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, noise levels stay low through ISO 200; ISO 400 still usable too, especially on the A640, A bit more zoom than your typical camera in this price range, Large 2.5" LCD can flip out and rotate; screen is visible in low light, Very good performance, Full manual controls, Custom spot on mode dial, AF-assist lamp, good low light focusing, Good movie and continuous shooting modes (though see issue below), Camera can be controlled from your computer (...
  • Cons: Redeye a problem, LCD resolution isn't great, Current zoom setting not shown on LCD, Can only record about 8 minutes of VGA video due to 1GB file size limit, Plastic tripod mount; can't swap memory cards while camera is on tripod, Included memory card is too small; bundling some rechargeable batteries would've been a nice touch

Canon PowerShot A630

  • Summary: This is probably just too big to fit in most pockets but the lack of a case is not vital as the lens is covered and the screen is capable of being rotated 180 degrees as with a lot of camcorders.

Test: Canon PowerShot A630

CHIP Online
9 November 2007
  • Conclusion: Eine A630 kauft sich niemand wegen des Designs – doch für günstige 270 Euro bietet die Kamera eine hohe Bildqualität und die volle Steuerung der Aufnahmeparameter wie bei einer Highend-Kamera. Damit eignet sie sich nicht nur, aber auch für Anfänger. Denn mit ihr können diese das Fotografieren richtig erlernen. Abstriche müssen Sie bei der A630 lediglich bei der Displayschärfe und beim Rauschverhalten machen.
  • Pros: Vielfältige Einstelloptionen, Gute Bildqualität, Drehbarer Monitor
  • Cons: Bildrauschen ab ISO 400, Niedrige Monitorauflösung
