Canon PowerShot A530 review
After researching every digital camera out there, I find that the A530 seemed to be the best value for the money with the features I wanted. There are many cool features on it inlcuding:
The option to preview a picture with the rule of thirds, 13 scene modes, 4X optical zoom, and the ability to adjust flash power in 13 brightnesses. I think it's a great beginner camera with fully manual controls available.
In manual mode, you can only choose between 2 f-stops f2.8 and f5.6.
Iso 800 produces noisy pictures, but so does almost every other digital camera I've heard of.
