Canon PowerShot A470 review

 

Children love taking pictures just as much as those of us who should know better, so for many people it's important to buy a camera that works for kids as well as it does for proper grown ups. The Canon PowerShot A470 fits the bill.

All in all, the Canon PowerShot A470 is a good no-frills camera at a rock-bottom price, with an easy learning curve. A three-year-old can take good pictures with the Canon PowerShot A470, so you can, too.

Canon Powershot A470

 

The Canon Powershot A470 is one of the very best entry level digital cameras you can buy. It has 7 megapixels and a 3.4x optical zoom lens. It is available in a choice of colours and its picture quality is outstanding.

Overall picture quality - sharpness of photos - value for money

Shutter lag with flash

When you take the price into account this is an excellent camera. When it comes to picture quality it outperforms many more expensive cameras. Well worth adding to your shortlist.

Canon PowerShot A470

 

It's amazing how good even the most entry-level digital cameras can be these days. Occupying the lowest price point on Canon's latest line-up of compa...

Low price, sharp pictures, speedy operation, good colour

Chromatic aberration issues, noise perhaps a touch high, boxy design

If you're on a budget you'll be hard pressed to find a better camera for your dollar. It doesn't take the best pictures on earth and it leaves a little to be desired in terms of style, but the Canon PowerShot A470 certainly is good value for money.

Budget Camera Group Test (Q4 2008)

 

In the first of our five group tests of compact digital cameras, we're looking at what are best termed 'budget' models. We've not gone for the absolute cheapest of the cheap (you can, after all buy a digital camera/ webcam thingy for as little as $20)...

Throughout this test it has become obvious that when shooting in good light there's little to choose between most of the cameras in the group in terms of picture quality; all can take a perfectly good picture that will make a decent print. Though there...

Canon PowerShot A470 Point-and-Shoot Digital Camera

 

This bargain-priced, no-frills camera offers very good image quality.

Quality images for a rock-bottom price ; Fast shutter speed

No image stabilization ; Too thick to put in your pocket

All in all, the A470 is a good no-frills camera at a rock-bottom price, with an easy learning curve. If a three-year-old can take good pictures with the Canon PowerShot A470, you can, too

Canon PowerShot A470

 

My three-year-old son thinks he's Ansel Adams, so we need a camera that works for him as well as for me. The Canon PowerShot A470 fits the bill.

Quality images for a rock-bottom price ; Fast shutter speed

No image stabilization ; Too thick to put in your pocket

For just $130, the PowerShot A470 is a good option for your kids or as a no-frills point-and-shoot.
