Canon PowerShot A530 review

Very good camera with very good image quality. Canon quality with a very good canon AF.

5 MP is enough for very sharp pictures in almost every condition.

Only negative is plastic body but considering the prize it is by far one of the most valuable cameras to buy. 170€ for 4x zoom, 5MP and very good handling! Many useful features for great pictures...

After trying different higher prize cameras I was impressed by the speed of the Af and the typical Conon menu and functions. This is not the "smallest ever 3x zoom 8 MP Camera" but very good thing to work with.

Addition to my review: I tried the camera at a concert in Cologne some days ago: very nive performance cosidering the fact, that I was 20 metres or so away from the stage. Great AF even under these conditions. Seems to be a real allround camera!


ISO 400 an 800 does not look really good, but which digital camera can do good shots in these ISO modes???
