Canon PowerShot A460 review

I purchased this camera for my wife, who likes to snap the family and outings. It was on sale and ease of use fitted her needs.
For what it is, a simple point and shoot, the images are just fine. It's possible to be quite creative with such a simple point and shoot.
It behaves reliably and is a simple and effective way to share photos with family and friends.
The software provides basic features and is ample for most people's needs.
For the money, it's excellent value and does all that a simple point and shoot should.


The only problem is it's hunger for batteries. Rechargables are a must.
Also, not a problem as such, it just takes a few seconds to switch into camera mode. Therefore missing some photo opportunities is part of ownership.
