Canon PowerShot A650 IS User Reviews

12 megapixels | 2.5 screen | 35 – 210 mm (6×)

I purchased this camera two years ago; previously I had a Canon S3IS, a Canon A630 and a couple of Kodaks. So far, the best point and shoot camera that I've owned. Even more, I've compared side by side with cameras of other brands like Sony and Panasonic owned by my friends and this model is the winer always. Excellent image quality, a lot of features and manual controls, the vary-angle screen is the best, excellent battery life... I made some research today because I always want an upgrade, ...

Pequena Notável com vários atrativos, dentre eles estão: Controles manuais; Foco manual; Macro de 1cm; Abertura de f/2.8; LCD vari-angle; Estabilizador de Imagem. Ps.: Utilizo um SDHC de 16GB, e funciona muito bem! =) Problems: O colorido dela não é tão bonito como o da sua irmã mais velha (A610), mas pelos prós citados acima, isso é apenas um mero detalhe.

A robust "old style" camera with a very good resolution. I like AA batteries power. Problems: None

Was a review here, with a link to samples, but it's not displaying properly! Camera is great, apart from JPEG compression artifacts above 100 ISO

I've been using this camera for almost 3 months now. Purchased from amazon for $315 and it was worth every penny of it. Its a good upgrade from a590is. The 12.1 mp is so convenient! You may think its too much, but once you get hooked on the ability to crop to this great extent, its hard to let go of. Highly recommended if you're looking for an upgrade in terms of size. PROS: * Great resolution! *Fast focusing (not as fast as some sony point-n-shoots, but still impressive) *excellent face ...

Sound quality issues on videos! 'S' words sound like you have a lisp. The flip screen is a bit of a pain in the neck, but is very handy when you want to get a different perspective from say ground level of above your head. Love the widescreen picture option as we view all our photos on a 16:9 TV. Great picture quality. Fast and accurate focus (a massive improvement on the Sony DSC100 that we have). Problems: Sound quality issues on videos! 'S' words sound like you have a lisp. We took this ...

I have used two cameras A650 four days long. I bought the first of them and found 7x20 bad pixels in the centre of the matrix. I returned it back to the seller and took another A650. At the same day, after approximately 20 on/off's scratches (abrasion spot) appeared on the front lens. These scratches were made by the lens lamellas. So the other A650 is also to return back to the seller forever… Problems: The design is excellent, but the camera is made very inaccurate, inexact. I think, ...

Purchased this for my wife to replace her old 4mp Kodak DX6490, which has been an excellent camera for her. She is strictly a P&S user, with no interest in manual settings. I did a direct comparison of this camera against the Lumix TZ4 and the Canon SD890 IS for ten days, shooting identical frames with all three cameras. Although there were features of both of the other cameras that we liked, the A650 quickly emerged as the one to beat. IQ consistently came in higher from this camera than ...

It took me a (long) long time to decide on my most recent digital camera purchase! I guess i wanted everything; great image quality, good zoom, good features, and all in a compact format that i could use easily when hiking etc. In the end, as always, it came down to a compromise and i'm really not disappointed with the decision i made. The 6x zoom is very useful, the image quality is extemely good for my purposes (RAW not needed), start times/ease of use is very good, build quality seems fine ...
