Canon PowerShot A430 review

Excellent little camera for the money. For $130, you get a basic 4mp camera with 4X optical zoom, plus your basic VGA movie mode, exposure compensation, macro/landscape mode. Controls are simple and easy to use.

Image quality is great for outdoors. Indoors and higher iso pictures not so good. Battery life with two 2000 mah rechargeable batteries is excellent. I can get over 800 pictures with a 1Gb SD card. The start up time is fast, but shot-shot time is a little slow.

For a cheap camera, there isn't anything to really complain about. It's a good competent basic point and shoot camera.


No problems so far (knock on wood)
