Summary: Ordered it thru Amazon. I had purchased the Nikon P1 and was unhappy with it so I ordered this one and Whew, I'm glad I did. I love it. It's a little larger than the P1 but I love the fact I can change the batteries just by adding some AA's.
Summary: I LOVE this camera. It's very portable, and takes wonderful photos. I have even had some of the images from this camera published in magazines! I use a Canon SLR for professional photography, and this little portable Canon digital is a great camera for sight-seeing and for those times I don't want...
Summary: Worth the money, I would recommend it to any photographer who undersatnds the basics of photography to get the most out of it. Buy the auxiliary lenses up front.
Pros: The 10M storage allowed me to take photos to my hearts content. Viewfinder and bright gimbal mounted display screen made grabbing the shot easy. The camera was small but did not feel flimsy - I come from working with film SLR's Nikon and Hasselblad so this counts for me. Face recognition worked ...
Cons: If you don't by the optional extension lense, the telephoto is very limited
Summary: I used to use a 35mm Canon camera and a very early model Canon digital (1 MP). Taking photos was never much fun with those cameras, it always seemed like more of a chore, so I just didn't see the need to go out and grab a new camera - until this one came out.
Summary: While ISO 400 and above produce more noise than I can comfortably live with in this camera, the ISO 80 to 200 range produces excellent images in any mode. I use the A640 for eBay listings, and the macro shots have made all the difference in sales.
Summary: I am a purist in the photography realm. I still use 35mm film. This was a birthday gift. But Canon did a brilliant job here. Starting with the large swivel screen, one can view the subject from any position or angle relative to the camera.
Summary: I have had this camera for about 6 months and I think I made the right choice. I was either going to buy this camera, or the A710 IS. I tested both of them at a camera store, then decided to buy the A640 based on battery life, features, and flash.
Summary: After much research, I settled on the Canon A640 as my first digital camera after many years using Nikon SLRs. Taking the advise of techy friends, I took the camera out of the box, put the manuals aside for later and began taking pictures. LOVE THIS CAMERA!
Summary: I bought this camera because it fit my needs perfectly. I was looking for: A high megapixel camera A large rotatable LCD A full range of manual features A Canon - my previous experience with them has been great Decent Zoom Ability to use standard AA batteries in a pinch When I saw this camera, I...
