Great camera for beginners and also to take pictures "on the go"

By 

from Topeka, KS

Comments about Canon - PowerShot A430 Digital Camera:

It is a great product for a very reasonable price. It does what it promises and beyond. I take great macro pictures with this camera. All what you need is just closely read the instruction. I would recommend mostly for beginners, but also it is great in pocket camera to take pictures "on the go".

It is great camera for beginners

Canon Pwershot A430 Digital Camera takes good pictures

By 

from Sherwood, AR

Comments about Canon - PowerShot A430 Digital Camera:

This camera takes really good pictures that are clear. But I get a bit comfused when trying to access the different features on the camera. It takes to long for the picture to take and go to the next shot. It may be fine for someone with better a understanding of all of the features.

Great camera that is easy to use!

By 

from Fairfax, VA

Comments about Canon - PowerShot A430 Digital Camera:

This camera is great!  It is easy to use and very lightweight.  Most of the weight of the camera is from the batteries.  It takes two AA batteries which is convenient because you can use regular batteries or rechargable ones.  LOTS better than the last camera I had which took a special battery that was hard to find and the rechargable one didn't keep a charge long!  The camera uses a media card that is very easy to get in and out and can be put directly into a laptop and the pictures download.  I like that I don't have to worry about the cables and cords to connect the camera for downloading.  I tried the video feature and was able to use it without reading the book!  I had never used a video on a camera (or cell phone), so I was completely in the dark.  It took just a few minutes to figure out and the video turned out great!  The thing that I would change about the camera is that there is no way to delete one individual picture from the camera. there is only an option for delete all.  You can delete individual pictures from the media card on the computer very easily, so the problem goes away but is just a little inconvenient when you are not near a computer.  I would recommend this camera!

Camera with many options!

By 

from Hallsville, TX

Comments about Canon - PowerShot A430 Digital Camera:

I bought this camera when digital cameras first came out.  I thought it was a great camera, but I did not know much about the digital cameras.  I have used other digital cameras since then and have found a lot of them you have to carry the owner's manual with you because you never know which button does what.  With this Canon camera,  it is so easy to use, even my two daughters use it!  I enjoy the high quality of the photos I take with this camera.  I seldomly see any redeye in any of my photos.  I even take pictures at like ceremonies, etc., and they are usually where the audience is in the dark.  The pictures still turn out clear and very detailed.  I recommend that anyone who's looking for a camera, to check out the Canon brand.  They are made with high quality and are built to last.  This specific camera also records videos.  The videos are always excellent and clear.  They have always turned very nicely.  In a whole, this is a high quality camera with a lot of great tools that come in handy!

The canon digitial is small but powerful.

By 

from Racine, WI

Comments about Canon - PowerShot A430 Digital Camera:

The canon digital I own is small,but powerful.  I think it is one of the best digital camers I have ever owned.  If fact this is one of the four that I have owned over a bried time, and I find it easy to use.  Downloading pictures to the computer is a breeze with the included software and cables.  Instructions are easy to follow and simple, even if done while watching a movie in the MGM cable channel lat in the early morning hours of the midwest.

Particularly useful with this camera is the power zoom feature which expamds the enlargment and telescoping capabilities that I find valuable, and necessary, in my photo work.  Also helpful and essential is the speed of this camera which is necessary in capturing movign people and animals in candid shot of family and friends.  I can't tell you how many shots of the grandkids have been made possible because of this feature.  Overall, the camera is a joy to have, easy to use, and well worth the value.

You should never buy this kind of CAMERA

By 

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about Canon - PowerShot A430 Digital Camera:

We'll let me tell you about this camera,you should never buy a canon camera because they don't function very well.I've been having my camera for about 4 to 5 years and it started to disfunctioning about a year ago now the camera that I owned doesn't work anymore so I have to buy a new one but this time I'am gonna make a very good selection and I'am going to try them out before I purchase them,the CANON was a gift to me on my birthday.So you should not buy these kind of cameras because they don't function.

Canons Make Great Cameras

By 

from Cedar Falls, IA

Comments about Canon - PowerShot A430 Digital Camera:

I love my canon camera! It is very durable. It takes great photos. It is pretty easy to use even for those that are not tech savy. It is easy to zoom in and out of and the picture is very clear. I have had many Canon cameras but this is the latest one I have. The only thing I dont like about it is it is kind of bulky. I wish it was a little lighter and more flat so it would fit into my pocket. Instead thought I just bought a cheap camera case and it fits in there fine. I like that is uses double (AA) batteries. I just buy the rechargable ones and then just reuse and reuse and reuse the same ones over and over. This saves me a lot of money on batteries. It is also very easy to download these photos onto your computer. I just plug int the cord and turn it on. I have never had a problem with the photos. i would highly recommend this camera or any Canon to anyone! They are all my family buys now.
