Canon PowerShot A490 Overview
Replacement for the A480, the A490 was launched at CES 2010 along with sister model the A495 (which is available in extra colors and has minor spec differences - most usefully a 9 point AF system). Offering a relatively slim plastic body, 2.5" LCD, Smart Auto mode, 3.3x zoom and lots of automatic shooting modes, the A490 is typical entry-level stuff.
