Excerpt: I got the Canon Powershot A630 for a bargain price of 200 dollars from my friend who intends to upgrade his camera to a Sony digital SLR camera.It is indeed a bargain price for me as the retail price stands at double of what I paid.
Great model that Canon should have never stopped making!

Summary: I have had 3 of these cameras because one was stolen and its replacement got wet on a sailing trip. I liked this model so much I bought another nice used one on Ebay since they were no longer available retail. The pictures are stunning and easy to take. Camera is easily portable but has good weight and feel in the hand - not bulky and not tiny like the newer ones you have to hold/balance with your fingers. The four standard AA batteries are a nice plus too.
Great camera, great macro lens, for the price. Old model, lots of features.

Summary: This is a great easy to use comfortable digital camera. I actually own 4 of them. The camera has a wonderful macro lens feature, much better than a lot of higher end cameras, which suits my needs perfectly for taking pictures of jewelry and makers marks. It focuses down, on small details, without any problem. The resolution for my purposes is fine, as you can see from my pictures of the jewelry. It is precise and clear.

Summary: I have a photographer friend who shot a photo with his A630 that I got and enlarged to a 16x20 print that was sharp. Knowing him and learning that the camera enabled the user to use advanced settings like shutter speed, aperture made me desire one. I found one on auction and won it. It was well kept and all functions worked. I have used it and it is just amazing in capturing sharp photos. It has functions on it that I don;'t have on my Canon Rebel XSi.
Summary: My first digital camera, finally. Took a few evenings online researching: Ease of use #1; Picture quality #2; Since it was an ebay purchase, I could shop my price, so that was #3. Very impressed with picture quality, very impressed. Took close up pix of crack in finish on a guitar: incredible detail. Download is a snap.
