The Canon A620 is something new on the compact camera horizon: An affordable, well-featured 7.1 MP compact great for the enthusiasts watching the budget. It’s newly equipped with the amazing DIGIC II processor and a 2.0 vari-angle LCD, and has a wealth of options, including a 4x optical zoom.

The A620's 7.1 mega pixel CCD has enough detail for large prints, and you can shoot on any setting from full auto to full manual control. In addition, a sort of user guide is available by the integrated function button in the center of the four-way buttons on the back. The A620 supports video, too, up to a minute long, with the QVGA format at 60fps, or in VGA at 30fps at any length your storage will allow.

There is nothing here that looks like a 'budget' model at all; image quality is excellent, it's very well built, it handles well and it has a real wealth of photographic features that make it suitable for everyone from the absolute beginner to the more experienced photographer wanting more control over the picture taking process. Like previous Canon models, it's a great first camera for anyone wanting to learn photography, being both affordable and well-featured enough to grow with you. A fine purchase for gifts, vacation or family use!

Works great

Pros: In all but the most inhospitable lighting conditions, the camera takes fantastic pictures. When you're in a hurry, the automatic snapshot does a great job of gaugeing the lighting conditions and making the proper adjustments for a good picture. If you're not satisfied with that, you can adjust everything manually. Noise in dark shots is generally diminutive.

Cons: Only 4x zoom lens. Only supports up to ISO 400 speed. Aperture ceiling of 2.4. For the price, however, these are things you can reasonably expect.

Other Thoughts: A great starter camera for the budding photographer, great snapshot camera for knockaround picture-taking.

5/ 5

Pros: Lots of features for a camera in this price range.

Ready to take a pic in ~1 sec from power-off state! Great for moments that you would otherwise miss on cameras that take 5 seconds or so to start up.

Picture browsing on the camera is really nice you can zoom out to see a page of pics instead of 1 at a time. Can also see a histogram to check if you may need to retake the pic.

Pic/movie playback to TV

Cons: Didn't see a way to transfer files from the camera directly, It wanted to use the camera as a Twain device (like a scanner) so the 3mb pics take of 30mb... Work around was to just use a card reader instead of plugging camera into computer.

Great Camera

Pros: Fantastic camera. Excellent picture quality, movie quality is also great considering it's a still camera. I also expected the quality of sound in video mode to be much less then it is. Very easy to use, the controls are laid out very nicely. Great use of features, I can go into all the advanced features and create fantastic photography, and if my mother needs to use a camera she goes onto the auto settings and still produces a fantastic image.

Cons: None

5/ 5

Pros: Fast. Sharp. Lots of features. Reads 4GB cards. 450+ shots (and twenty 10 second video clips) later, the original 4 x AA Duracell pros are still going...

When camera is powered down, lens is covered. LCD display rotates 180 degree.

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: wish it came with a case.

Nice camera

Pros: Nice camera, quick focus compared to my old G2. I like to crop and reframe before printing so megapixles is important

Cons: a little noise when zooming

Other Thoughts: Very nice camera for the money

Great 7MP Camera!

Pros: I'm very happy with this camera for both still pictures and the movies you can make with it!
The movie mode has many settings to choose from. The 320X240 at 60fps is nice for seeing such motions as a golf swing or for checking out your tennis forehand, backhand or serve. You can play the movie from the camera directly to your TV and at the camera stop each frame if you wish... at 60 fps you see lots of detail.
With Photoshop Elements (from 2.0 to the new 5.0, Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro) and this camera the creative things to do are limited only by your imagination! The FREE 1GB card Newegg included made this purchase an easy one to decide to make. Overall I'm very pleased!

Cons: None!
