Editor's Review

It's simple, it's direct, it's the Canon PowerShot A460. This exceedingly small entry-level camera from Canon features a substantial 5-megapixel sensor, 4x optical zoom, and both automatic and manual exposure modes to suit your needs. It's perfect for travel, slim enough to fit in your pocket and taking 2 AA batteries as opposed to a proprietary lithium-ion rechargeable. This camera also comes in a variety of colors so you can pick the one that best suits your personality.

Acceptable, until 10,000 photos (Gabriel — 10/01/2009)

This is a nifty little camera that takes some decent photos. There's enough manual features to keep "pro-sumer" techheads like myself happy.

Just one note, it died on the 10,095th photo. The shutter is stuck open, it's out of warranty and will cost about $70 to repair... Time for a new camera...

Awesome camera!! (Megan — 05/13/2007)

I just got a Canon A460 this morning. I have already taken a ton of pics and video. Sofar from what I can tell, it takes very clear, sharp pictures and the video is great with clear audio. A couple things I have found that I don't like, is you can't put a date stamp on the pictures unless you're in postcard mode, and the software isn't as straight forward as the one from my last camera, a Kodak C340. It seems to be well built, so I think it will be pretty durable. The LCD screen is clear and accurate. It has a guide beam to help you line up your shots, and it chimes to let you know when it is focused. The battery life is already great, I'm still on the alkaline batteries it came with, my Kodak would go through a set of batteries every 5-10 pics. The startup is very quick. Less than a second I think once you disable the logo screen, which is very easy to do. The controls are a bit more complicated than I am used to, but I'm sure I will become acustomed to it quickly. The shutter button and power buttons are in the wrong places, compared to what I'm used to. I keep hitting the power button instead of the shutter, but that too I can get used to. All in all, from what I can tell it is a very nice little camera for under $200CAD.

Best buy in the category (Caloinescu Mihai-Dan — 04/11/2007)

This is my second digital camera and I can tell you that: THE CANON A460 IT IS A GREAT CAMERA. The pictures I took look great no matter if it was inside or outdoor, brightlight or dark, moving subject or macropictures. The camera is very cheap (in Romania 130 EURO - the package included 512MB card and case) and it is suitable for beginners and holydays. The zooming works great (but not at more than 8x). The filming is fine if you set the camera at 640x480 (10 frames/sec) and in good visibility conditions. The camera has a multilingual menu and it is very user friendly.
