I have had this camera for a couple weeks now and really like it. I have a digital rebel XT and some L lenses as well for when I want to take "serious" shots, but this camera has been great to take family photos and videos on various outings. I love having the video feature, especially for kids it's great to caputure quick cllips of them talking and moving. That's the one thing that I wish were better for this camera.... the frame rate on the video is not as high as I would like (20fps on ...

Very good camera with very good image quality. Canon quality with a very good canon AF. 5 MP is enough for very sharp pictures in almost every condition. Only negative is plastic body but considering the prize it is by far one of the most valuable cameras to buy. 170€ for 4x zoom, 5MP and very good handling! Many useful features for great pictures... After trying different higher prize cameras I was impressed by the speed of the Af and the typical Conon menu and functions. This is not the ...

I FOUND THE A530 AT THE SHOP FOR ONLY AU$289. FIRST CAMERA. A GREAT BARGAIN. THE IMAGE QUALITY IS BETTER THAN IT COULD BE. IT PRINTS CLEAR SHOTS WHEN YOU ADJUST THE PRINT SETTINGS.

PUT IT ON DRIVE MODE TO GET THE BEST RESULT. IT WAS A GREAT BARGAIN, IT WAS BETTER THAN I HOPED IT WOULD EVER BE. Problems: YOU NEED TO BUY A ...

Found the A530 at a store for only ¥19800 so took the plunge (impulse buy.) This is my first Canon; I've always been a FujiFilm user. Construction: The construction is good. All plastic body, and it feels light but not cheap. No metal it seems, but consider the low price. Features: Lots of features, ISO settings, vivid color, B&W, etc. Lots of pre-sets for the novice and experienced user alike. Image quality: Image quality is quite good for such a cheap camera. I was skeptical at first, but ...

The camera is well worth the money. It takes great pictures and is easy to use. Lots of shoot modes that are easy to figure out if you spend a few minutes with the manual. Problems: The only problems I have had are with the batteries. Keep extras on hand because it eats them up pretty fast.
