Hi. I've been having A530 since XMas '06. Most of the time I used it during my week (or 2)-lasting trips into the Mountains, but it wasn't obviously the only moments I used it. I couldn't tell so far, despite opinions of many photo-sites, wheter it is a manufacturer's fault, or my fault. However, as far as I remember, the camera was taking pictures that were extremely blurry in lower left and upper right corners. And it wasn't just a small distortion, as by the corners I mean big areas of ...

Good still images. Movies appear a little jerky, and noise on zoom. Problems: Movie images are now black and white with a slight sepia tone. Contacted Canon by email, was told to send it under guarantee to one of their repairers, Did that, but company telephoned me to say it should not have been sent there. Contacted Canon - eventually - who seem to be at a loss what to do, hence my camera is still with the wrong repairer!!

I've received this camera in exchange for my broken A70, which I think is excellent service from Canon. This is an improvement in many ways: - Higher resolution - 4x zoom - Higher ISO up to 800 - Faster focus - Losts of features (Not many that I care about) It's a great snapshot cam for a very reasonable price.

I only got this camera as a gift after my brother broke my Sony's screen....and I am so sorry I accepted his offer! The image quality is so bad as to defy belief. The noise on this camera is simply amazingly bad. And the battery usage? Forget about it...simply too little out of a set of 2600mAh. I'll give this to my kids to play with. The ease of use , and of course solid construction expected from Canon is okay. Problems: Too much noise on picture. Even at 100% This is unacceptable. Batterie ...
