Excellent little camera for the money. For $130, you get a basic 4mp camera with 4X optical zoom, plus your basic VGA movie mode, exposure compensation, macro/landscape mode. Controls are simple and easy to use. Image quality is great for outdoors. Indoors and higher iso pictures not so good. Battery life with two 2000 mah rechargeable batteries is excellent. I can get over 800 pictures with a 1Gb SD card. The start up time is fast, but shot-shot time is a little slow. For a cheap ...

This is an easy-to-use camera that produces great pictures. I bought the camersa in the Czech Republic and as a result got a user manual in Czeck - but I found I could set up and use the camera with no problems. (There is an english language manual on the supplied CD). It powers up and down fairly quickly but can be a little slow in saving pictures to the memory card. Having a viewfinder is a must - it enables you to steady the camera against your face when taking protos and it saves on ...

Beginner will be happy with this great 4MP camera, with 4x zoom, optical viewvinder, selectable ISO, scene modes, and VGA movie mode (with sound). But novice and amateur photographer must beware of the lens since at wideangle is not so wide, and long-end is slower than others. Problems: None so far

I have been using a Canon S45 for a few years. I wanted a bit smaller camera that ran on AA batteries instead of a propriatary battery pack. The A430 has some good features. 1. Quick start up time. 2. A quality lens and Good zoom. 3. Fairly compact for a camera that runs on AA's. 4. Canon quality images. 5. Movie mode and good sound capture. 6. Good variety of picture shooting modes and settings. 7. Optical viewfinder with zoom. The camera does not have, 1. Shutter or apreature priority. You ...

Extremely fast start up and review times. DigicII really shines on a smaller pixel camera. Great movie mode. Decent zoom range. Viewfinder! Great first camera for new digital buyers who don't want to spend lot's of money. Has advanced features too when they increase their skills. With only 2AA batteries and tiny sd/mmc memory, it's small and lightweight but feels solidly built. This should be a real popular seller. Problems: Slow shot to shot times when using flash since it only has ...
