Great Camera for the price

Strengths: 7.1 Megapixels, 3.4x optical zoom, great picture quality, feature rich, inexpensive, uses AA batteries (in terms of availability and cost effectiveness)

Weakness: no image stability, uses AA batteries (in terms of battery life), no internal memory of its own

This camera overall is an excellent performer. It is also inexpensive especially coming from a trusted brand like canon. The image quality is jaw-dropping comparing to other similar priced cameras. This camera is a great bang for the buck for people who are in a budget.

A big bang for the buck

Good Canon Powershot A470

Strengths: good quality

Weakness: battery life short

We have a Canon Camera, but it's larger and heavier than the Powershot A470. I wanted something small that I could either put in my pocket or bag. This camera fits that description and more. It's easy to set, focus and shoot! The pictures are clear and sharp. Recently though, I downloaded pictures into a digital picture frame. I was disappointed that some of the pictures had dark background and...

Canon A470 camera

Strengths: pretty, good price

Weakness: not rechargeable battery

This Canon A470 looks very pretty. It is 7.1Mp and 2.5 inch LCD, with such a good price. The weakness is that it uses AA battery, instead of rechargeable battery. overall, I like it.
