This is a wonderful camera for the beginner, i brought it 2 years ago, as my first digital camera. It has wonderful features and is very easy to use with the simple turn wheel at the top. Problems: A small lcd monitor which makes slightly hard viewing, and the 2.0 MP doesnt quite make for large photos. Chews through the batterys quickly.

I've had this camera for two years now, and it's stood the test of time very well. I've had hundreds of photos developed and they've all been fantastic. It's a great introductory camera for new photographers, or new digital photographers. It has a fair number of features. It's very sturdy and withstood a number of tumbles. Overall, an excellent camera for everyday use. Problems: Lately there's been some horizontal lines appearning on the LCD screen that sometimes appear on the pictures, ...

I bought this camera last month (sept. 2005) as a package deal with canon Cp-200 printer. I also own a Canon a-40, so I am very comfortable with Canon menus. This little gem takes great pics. and is easy to use, and I especially appreciate the many options available on such an inexpensive camera, highly recommended, and hopefully the ccd recall will not haunt me in the next few years. I also own an Olympus c-5060 and a 2100 UZi, so I basically have many different weapons in my arsenal. Problems:

I've used two Canon A60. I had the first broken in 6 months. I bought the second in march 2004 and is still here, even if it fell 3-4 times and it's scratched a lot. The image quality is good for a cheap camera like this and it's very easy to use. Amateur photographer can do a lot of things, because it has a lot of advanced features suc as Av, Tv an full manual. The flash recycling time is fast and the camera is quick to display pictures. The movie mode is sufficient. Problems: You can't ...

My first camera was a Canon Powershot A100 and I choose the A60 model to substitute it when I was looking for additional resources. Beautiful cam that takes really good photos. In my opinion, is the best 2.0 MPixel cam ever. Amazing battery life. I take more the 200 pictures with a single battery set, wih LCD and flash on. Problems: LCD viewfinder is easy to scratch as the corners of the camera.

Camera takes great photos. Problems: The camera started shutting itself down and then would not let you access the menu or review photos you took or the lense didnt retract after switching to view mode. Camera will suddenly turn itself on if the batteries are left in the camera.It may be to do with power supply.but its going back to the shop!

The Powershot A60 is quite a value for the money, and takes remarkably good pics for a 2MP camera. My post is really about the "E18" error that others in this posting area have talked about. Several have said that Canon is not acknowledging this error at all and is turning a blind eye to this particular problem. Not true. The "E18" error is posted quite clearly on Canon's Web site in their support pages. It's even listed as one of the more common error prompts. "E18" happens when there's a ...

It's the best thing going in its class. It has a thorough set of manual and scene modes that make it easy to try new techniques; it uses common AA batteries, and it's easy to hold. The optics are sharp and fast. Problems: The camera just isn't very well made. I had it less than a week before a switch failed, preventing it from going into Replay mode (thus connecting to a computer is impossible). A cursory look a web boards shows this is a relatively common problem. Canon should correct a ...

I have really enjoyed using this camera until lately. Error message E18 has appeared in the bottom left hand corner of my LCD. Did a google search and have found that I'm not alone. It is a shame that Canon is not willing to fix this bug for free. Oh well, I guess I don't have to buy Canon products in the future. Problems: See review.

The camera has many good features and when it is working properly is a good by. However, Cannon has a major problem with the A60's and could account for why this model is being discontinued. Problems: We bought the camera while on vacation and within two weeks after buying the A60, we began having problems with it. We returned the camera twice for repairs only to have the same problem as soon as it was returned to us. On the third return, the company finally replaced the camera. It was ...
