Canon Powershot A610

 

Canon Powershot A610 Review. Impressive digital camera. Has an LCD screen that pulls out and twists round. Top quality photos. Good macro mode.

Sharpness of the photos ; Indoor photo quality ; Feature set at reasonable price ; Angle of LCD screen can be varied

Canon PowerShot A610

Manual exposure controls; excellent feature set for its class; great image quality; easy to use, with a convenient function button for quick setting changes; compatible with lens converters and other accessories.

Flimsy SD/MMC-slot and port covers; slightly stiff function button; not quite as fast as some competitors.

The Canon PowerShot A610 puts a great feature set in an affordable camera that produces above-average image quality, making it an excellent option for a wide variety of photographers.

An affordable camera with a great feature set that produces above-average image quality.

Manual exposure controls ; Excellent feature set for its class ; Great image quality ; Easy to use, with a convenient function button for quick setting changes ; Compatible with lens converters and other accessories

Flimsy SD/MMC-slot and port covers ; Slightly stiff function button ; Not quite as fast as some competitors

We saw little noise at low ISO settings and acceptable visual noise levels at higher ISOs. There was less purple fringing than we've noticed in photos from some A-series cameras in the past, which may be the result of the A610's G-series lens.

Canon Powershot A620 Digital Camera Review

 

The Canon Powershot A620 is one of the successors to the Canon A95.

Great image quality ; Quick operation ; Excellent battery life ; Many manual modes and creative modes

Slider switch for capture and playback modes can be hard to operate ; Zoom may be too slow for some (but not me) ; If you upgrade from an A95, you'll have to trade your Compact Flash for SD memory

I highly recommend this camera. Its quick operation and image quality provide a camera that will not disappoint. This camera is a great choice for someone who wants top-notch quality, wants some manual/creative controls and someone that doesn't mind a...
