...........to those interested in the A650 IS ...... like ALL A600 series cams it's a winner and has very few Niggles - the only two serious ones are the SD card in with the AA batteries and a lack of brightness adjustment for the LCD (which is too bright) - as it happens the A640 & A630 were the same .

the 650 IS carries on the tradition of the A600s with less NR than the G versions, excellent price and amazingly good sample variation (the REAL Gs were terrible for this as are the Ixus models with lenses) - the crappola unamed 2300Ma MiMhs are still going after 400 shots with the IS on continous and Auto-Chimp switched on .

It's not perfect but is as close as you can get with a 12Mp cam in that size CCD - loet alone for the cash - throw in the G9 lens and the higher rez screen (compared to the previous A600s) and you're there ..

The Big Pics wil be up until this thread gets pushed off the front page - the Crops will be there pretty much indefinately - personal shots (such as the preacher etc) get replaced as better ones need the space ..
