Canon PowerShot A530 review

I have had this camera for a couple weeks now and really like it. I have a digital rebel XT and some L lenses as well for when I want to take "serious" shots, but this camera has been great to take family photos and videos on various outings. I love having the video feature, especially for kids it's great to caputure quick cllips of them talking and moving. That's the one thing that I wish were better for this camera.... the frame rate on the video is not as high as I would like (20fps on 320px and 15fps on the 640px). The video quality is good though. All and all, it's a great camera, with great battery life (I use NiMh batteries and have shot multiple gigibytes of video on one set of batteries) great image quality and is super compact.
