Summary: Aye, this camera is great. I suppose I might be biased, this being my first digital, but I have used cameras borrowed from pals in the recent past, and didn't particularly enjoy them (which is why I wasn't too interested in a digi before). Quick startup is a big bonus.
Summary: My previous camera was a Samsung digimax--about 4MP, no optical zoom. It just stopped turning on one day(I had not dropped it or damaged it--just stopped). It's apparently a common problem with Samsung. This camera is amazing. It takes fantastic pictures.
Summary: Let me preface this by saying I come from the "old school" of photography. I've use good-quality film SLR cameras for years, and have always hated digitals because of all the cumbersome controls and lack of good manual control of the camera (yes, even on digital SLRs).
Summary: I think I looked at every camera on the Amazon site and figured out and compared each one to decide which one to buy. I finally decided that I needed a camera that used AA batteries and used a SD card. So then I started comparing the Canons and reading the reviews.
Summary: I absolutely love this camera. It is hands down the best digital camera I have ever owned. It is extremely easy to use. There are a so many options and settings. This camera can pretty much do anything that you could think of. Great camera for the price. I highly recommend it.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot A630 is even better than I imagined. I have had it two weeks and already have 237 photos that everyone is impressed with. The quality is excellent and it is so simple to use that I am carrying it with me almost everywhere.
Summary: This is our first digital (I know, we live like cavemen) and I absolutely love it. Everyone is soooo jealous when I swivel the screen. It is perfect size FOR US but my sister said, OMG thats huge!
Summary: I previously owned a Nikon Coolpix 3.1 MP camera, so that had set my expectations before buying the Powershot A630. This camera is a HUGE upgrade in many areas, including: * Fast startup * Image quality (which is an obvious one going from 3.1 to 8 megapixels) * Ability to shoot images in low light *...
Summary: The first digicam I got (another brand) was very disappointing for my purposes, the A630 is a major improvement. Autofocus works very well in low light. The LCD continues to work in dim light also instead of going blank. Battery life is very good using 2000MAH AA rechargeables.
