Canon PowerShot A70 Review
The three megapixel PowerShot A70 and two megapixel PowerShot A60 were introduced this year just in time for the Photo Marketing Association (PMA 2003) trade show in Las Vegas. The PowerShot 'A-series' are Canon's entry-level digital cameras, the A60 and A70 replace the A30 and A40 of exactly twelve months earlier. This year however Canon has taken the amount of functionality provided in an entry level camera the next level, both cameras have manual controls including aperture and shutter priority as well as selectable sensitivity, focus modes, metering modes, white balance, photo effects and three minute movie clips. Almost everything in this review not related to image resolution can be applied to the PowerShot A60, other than the sensor the cameras are identical.
