Dollar for dollar, you can't go wrong with the A630. I've had mine for a few months now and am quite satisfied. The battery issue mentioned is quickly overcome by getting rechargables. They seem to last as long as any propriety batteries I use in other cameras. I don't even carry spare AAs anymore. Image quality is superb; I hardly ever need to do post production work sharpening them. Problems: As with all built-in flashes, this one just doesn't throw enough light. Good for shots of 10' or less.

When I decided to buy a new camera, I did some research and narrowed the competition to Canon's a710 IS, a630, a640 and a used pro1. After a lot comparing and reading I decided a630 because of it's low price, rotating screen, picture quality and the fact that it is propably the best value for my money. I have owned this camera just over a month and I'm very satisfied with it. It is my first canon, but thanks to it's simplisity I didin't face any problems. It took only 10 minutes to get to ...

Over the last week I have taken many photo's in varying condition's and the performance of this camera has been very good. The bang for the buck just can't be beat. I'll save you all the technical jargon as it has been said many times already here. Just know that I'm another happy user of this camera and would recommend it to anyone looking in this class an price range. Problems: None yet.

I got the camera 3 days ago, so this will not be detailed. But putting down my 30D and picking this up and trying a few shots was not a good idea. I should have been playing with my 5 year old P&S instead of the 30D right before this camera. But still while I was getting the hang of it , A630 took some dreadful pictures in the 'auto' mode. Later I was able to take some amazing shots in Tv mode with and without flash (ISO 80). I was impressed with the detail and sharpness after viewing my ...

I bought the A710IS first, but ended up returning it in favor of this camera, the A630. You can read my full comparison between the two cameras in the A710IS review if you want, but to summarize, the A630 costs around $100 LESS than the A710IS, and in my opinion takes much BETTER pictures, especially at night. I have nothing bad to say about this camera at all, I like everything about it. I don't care that the LCD doesn't have super duper resolution - that's not what its for people! Its ...

The A630 replaces my old PowerShot A75, which I liked very much. All the good things I have read in the web about the A630 are true. I just want to mention some points, I was astonished or disappointed: Problems: - Remote capture: This is a software tool coming with Canon cameras, which allows you to take pictures direct by the pc, inlcuding the possibility to have some automatic time intervall (for example: 400 photos every 20 seconds) I liked this feature very much on my A75. Now I found ...

Shipped out from Gateway last month as a replacement for the A620 which I had waited on for two months. They switched to the newer model without consulting me first, but let me have it for $200.00 so I was happy. Seems like a swell little camera, macro is very crisp, blur in lower light conditions is quite pronounced when using auto. Struggles with indoor basketball games on any setting, with or without tripod, needs lots of light! The two nipples that poke up from the bottom of the swivel ...

I have owned briefly 2 of these cameras. There has been some changes from the previous model (A620). I do like the larger LCD BUT I do not care for the single door for both the battery and the memory card (16 mg ???). Canon was looking for ways to make the A630 cheaper. The photos were a little on the fuzzy side and not as crisp as the A620. If you can get the A620 go that route. I got mine with a canon printer for the same price as the A630 and ended up returning these units. Problems: ...

I received my A630 about two weeks ago and have taken many indoor and outdoor photos. WOW!!! That’s all I NEED to say. But I also WANT to say more. The A630 is truly an excellent camera. Here’s my review of each category: Image Quality: I have been an S45 owner for the past 4 years, and my S45 takes superbly sharp, detailed and color accurate photos, with the exposure being somewhat fair to average. The S45’s main problem was corner vignetting and slight corner softness. The S45 is also a 4 ...

Oh my! I just received my A630 for my birthday 11-03. I have been up all night reading about this wonderful camera. I can't wait to really get to know it better. That's the only reason I rate 4.5 on ease of use because I'm not there yet. My second dc. Would reccomend this camera to all who want a new dc. Problems: None yet!
