Canon PowerShot A530 review

I only got this camera as a gift after my brother broke my Sony's screen....and I am so sorry I accepted his offer!

The image quality is so bad as to defy belief. The noise on this camera is simply amazingly bad.

And the battery usage? Forget about it...simply too little out of a set of 2600mAh.

I'll give this to my kids to play with. The ease of use , and of course solid construction expected from Canon is okay.


Too much noise on picture. Even at 100% This is unacceptable.

Batteries are eaten up at an alarming rate.

These days video is an important factor even in digital stills. And 10 frames per second on VGA is , frankly , a poor joke on us.
