  • Conclusion: Canon PowerShot A640 Conclusion I think that Canon's success with its digital camera range is set to continue thanks to the excellent quality of the Canon PowerShot A640.

Canon PowerShot A640

  • Summary: Canon PowerShot A640 verdict Like many new compacts this year, the PowerShot A640 is basically an enhanced version of an earlier model. Since its predecessor was the award-winning A620 though, this is no bad thing. Essentially Canon’s taken the A620, enlarged its screen to 2.5in, popped in a 10 Megapixel sensor and increased the maximum sensitivity to 800 ISO. Taking each enhancement in turn, the bigger screen is welcome and puts it in line with other compacts.
  • Pros: Very high resolution images at low sensitivities, 4x optical zoom slightly longer than rivals, Large flip-out screen and optical viewfinder, Full manual controls and decent grip
  • Cons: Relatively large and heavy for a compact, Screen is low resolution for its size, No live histogram facility, Rechargeable batteries not included

  • Summary: As compact cameras chase ever-higher resolutions and gimmicky features, it's great to find one that concentrates on the basics instead: image quality, creative features and ease of use. Perfect for anyone who wants people to ooh and ahh over their images, rather than their camera.

Canon PowerShot A640 Review

24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Je zou nog kunnen discussiëren over het ontbreken van bepaalde sneltoetsen voor bijvoorbeeld ISO, maar daarmee komt het concept wel heel dicht bij zijn grote broer; de Canon PowerShot G7. Er moet een verschil merkbaar blijven en wat mij betreft stelt Canon dan ook terecht een grens. De Canon PowerShot A640 is een uitstekende digitale compactcamera waarmee de beginner prima uit de voeten kan, maar waarmee ook een handvat wordt geboden om door te leren en wellicht ooit de...

  • Conclusion: Deze PowerShot A640 schaart zich moeiteloos bij de betere camera�s voor de hobby- en semi-professionele fotograaf, zoals de grafisch vormgever en internetpublicist, de veeleisende fotohobbyist of de makelaar, die echt alle details van een huis wil vastleggen. Zij kunnen allemaal hun voordeel doen met deze Canon, zonder roestvrijstaal en luxe gimmicks. Niet lullen, maar fotograferen, lijkt zijn motto.
  • Pros: beeldkwaliteit, 10 megapixel, 4x zoom
  • Cons: geheugen, gewicht
