Canon PowerShot A3000 IS review

The camera seems a bit cheap compared to cameras with the same price. But it takes good pictures, both indoor and outdoor. When ISO is low(100) they are quite sharp, with ISO of 400 or bigger they start to be blury.
It's quite fastin booting and shotting, i'm using a 4Gb class 6 SDHC and it writes to the card in no time at all.
In auto mode sometimes it takes a while focusing and chosing the rigth settings, and sometimes is out of focus, I usually shot in Program mode.
Overall is a nice camera that takes good pictures for the price it costs.

Problems:

No way at all to control the aperture size
Auto mode a bit slow and not always accurate
