Cannon PowerShot A640

C. Whitehead "Chris Whitehead", Amazon
4 January 2008
  • Summary: This is the second Canon camera I have had. The older model was superb. I got this one in Summer 2007 to replace an older model which I had dropped and broken. Without hesitation I went to buy the A640. What a disaster. The redeye doesn't work. Seems to be a problem identified by others when I researched on the web. Tried phoning customer service absolutely useless. If you're going to use flash don't buy this camera.

  • Pros: it has a good weight and feel for average sized hands The use of AA batteries helps keep the cost down For those that prefer an optical viewfinder, Canon is probably the strongest supporter, and this is a better than average viewfinder, although it does not have a diopter adjustment. flex-focus system. Today''s AF cameras do a decent job, but occassionally, they just don''t hit on the right focus point. With the flex system, you can determine which point to use. This ...
  • Cons: digital zoom jumps in very discrete steps once you go beyond the 4x lens capability the camera selects spot after spot around the periphery of my item of interest without locking on to the center of the item itself Unless one wishes to use the Custom mode, one''s settings will only last so long as the camera does not go back from picture taking mode to play mode.
