Canon PowerShot A430

Editor's Review

Canon's A430 aims for the novice crowd with a simple point-and-shoot philosophy. The A430 is a 4 megapixel camera for entry-level users and aside from the ease of use, there's not a lot to go crazy over. The sensor is pretty small for today's standards, and the body, while sleek, isn't as flashy as Canon's exciting SD line. Even for novice or casual users, the A430 is a camera you'll probably outgrow fairly quickly, and soon enough you'll be itching to take those training wheels off and graduate to a better model. Skip the middleman and choose a camera you can grow with.

Very good camera to buy with limited budget, If it's not the best ;) (Ashraf Hamdy Sello — 12/19/2006)

It's really the value for the money, Very good picture quality, Clear and Accurate colors, New fancy options like auto rotate image on the LCD by only rotating the camera in your hand and also the ability to change the camera shutter sound and other sounds and also the start up image, the flash sensor is very sensitive even for the reflection (Exp: If you try to shoot a white target the flash may not light at all if the room light is enough, But If you shoot a dark item the flash must light in order to gain each details of the shooted item with no fear of producing an image with flash reflection), So easy to connect to the computer with Win XP OS (The computer deal with camera through the standard USB cable as a storage device to write on or read from it's memory card even without installing the camera SW), I see also see a WIDE PIC mode in camera menu but I didn't test it yet.
My advice to any one is to buy this camera, It's a very good one for your budget too. (I Bought it for only $190) at 12 Dec 2006 to be my great camera for the new year 2007 :)

Not bad for the price. (IAN HAMILTON — 11/02/2006)

A good digital camera and easy to use software quite impressive in fact,but I was expecting a better quality from Canon.I was using a 2 meg pix
Fugifilm camera 2800Z and have put one against the other and frankly,Fuji is clearer than Canon in my opinion .

Takes a great picture (RickM — 10/30/2006)

I really enjoy my Canon A430. It takes a great picture both indoors and outside. Inside pictures come out clear without using the flash. Has many mode setting which help the shooter get a good picture. I think it's a great camera.

Difficult camera control system (Dick Pritchard — 09/23/2006)

The camera takes good 4 mg pictures and the equivalent zoom of about 140 mm is good. However, canon has a long way to go before it will be as good as a $100.00 point and shoot film camera. Maybe if you buy the high end $800.00 digital things would get better. However, the ease of putting pictures on the computer and viewing them instantly is really nice. Again, canon needs to go back to the drawing board if it wants to match the ease of use of a film point and shoot. For sure the quality of the 4 mp cannot match today's film.

Compact Pocket size camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I took the camara out of the box bought re chargable batteries and a 512 MB card. I have not stopped taking shots. Great quality. EASY to use. I finally read the manual. Great camera for carrying around or the main camera. LCD view is great WYSIWYG.

Versatile & Easy to Use (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Excellent point and shoot for a novice that requires few features. Good picture quality. Average shooting at night w/good flash range. Long flash recycle time. Highly recommended.
