Canon PowerShot A430

 

A fuss free, easy to use option that takes sharp colourful images, the Canon PowerShot A430 offers excellent value for the beginner - or the smallest member of the family.

Large buttons, easy to use operation, excellent value

Plastic build, 1.8-inch screen is small and underwhelming by today's standards

Canon Powershot A430

 

Although the Canon Powershot A430 is an entry level digital camera picture quality is still at a very high level. At the time of writing my review this camera is the best inexpensive model you can buy.

Value for money ; Picture quality ; Viewfinder

LCD screen could be clearer in bright light

Considering the Canon Powershot A430 is available for around 100 pounds it has a lot to offer. Picture quality puts to shame many much more expensive digital cameras. In terms of value for money I cannot see where you would find a digital camera much...

Canon PowerShot A430

 

There's no reason to spend hundreds on a digital point-and-shoot when the Canon PowerShot A430 does the job for less than $200.

Very good picture quality. Solid performance. No shutter lag.

Poor video quality. Mediocre recycle time.

Canon PowerShot A430 review

 

Canon PowerShot A430

Solid features and performance; inexpensive; decent optical viewfinder for a point-and-shoot.

Disappointing photo quality; tiny screen.

The Canon PowerShot A430 is a decent, dirt-cheap camera with nice features, but the photos could look better.

For a very low entry fee, the Canon PowerShot A430 lets novice users enjoy the benefits of Canon imaging technology. The A430 has a surprisingly solid build, with image quality to match. The 4.0-megapixel CCD captures excellent images, able to make...

Though it doesn't have the manual control that some of the other A-series cameras boast, there are 14 exposure modes to get creative with, as well as Stitch-Assist mode for capturing panoramas, a Movie mode, and a Continuous mode for capturing up to...

Canon PowerShot A430

 

Another entry-level camera of interest is the Canon PowerShot A430 which has 4 megapixels, 4x optical zoom, a 1.8 inch LCD and simple operation. Ready for more about this entry-level camera which has more zoom power than anyone else? Very well, let's go.

4x zoom lens; more telephoto power ; Good battery life ; Good LCD visibility ; Unlimited, fast continuous shooting ; Fast performance ; Great 1 cm macro mode with optional digital zoom ; Very good image quality with low noise until ISO 200; extremely...

Small, low resolution LCD ; Weaker flash; red-eye ; Autofocus could be faster; AF is lagging behind competition ; Lame" movie mode in 2006; VGA at a choppy 10 FPS, limited to 1 GB

The affordable Canon PowerShot A430 is the successor to last year's A410. Featuring 4 megapixels, a bigger 4x zoom lens, 1.8 inch LCD and great performance, this camera is a competitive one.
