5.0 out of 5 stars A good camera to own and use 1 Nov 2006
I bought a Canon Powershot A430 for my wife, who takes good photos, but does not enjoy fiddling with technology. It has proved to be an excellent choice, simple to use, good results. The large LCD, 4x optical zoom and the use of standard AA batteries are attractive features. The camera has a solid feel, is comfortable to hold, and everything works smoothly. Buy one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great photos, great value 27 Oct 2006
Verified Purchase
Great little camera for the money. Bought as a gift, it has proved easy to use, not too fiddly and has produced good photos. It has lots of features for the price but can be used as a "point and shoot" and produce fab results for those who don't want to bother.

I have to say I love this camera I have had it for a few weeks and it is so simple to use that I undertstanded all the modes and how to find them instantly. I am not very technically minded so this was great for me.

The picture quality is good and the zoom is great.

This colour wasn't my first choice as I really wanted the red one but I had my heart set on this particular camera so I am so please i comprimised and bought this colour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal starter camera 13 April 2007
By G. Drew
Verified Purchase
I have owned the Canon A430 digital camera for about six months and I use it at least once a week. So far it's been a pleasure to use and I particularly like the different shooting modes. Although a little bulky and heavy, I would still recommend this as a good starter camera for anyone considering purchasing their first digital camera. One tip: get a larger memory card (e.g. 1GB SD card) and a set of rechargeable batteries (Uniross 2500mAh Ni-MH AA are the ones I use and they last for ages) as regular batteries will fade very quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Camera 24 Jan 2007
By MR
I bought this camera as my second camera - I have a digtal SLR and needed a small pocket sized point and shoot. This camera fits the bill perfectly.

Excellent picture quality for the money - better than that of many more expensive cameras.

Simple to use - even my wife has shown an interest!

The only bad thing I have to say about the camera is that it is power hungry. The batteries that came with it didn't last very long. My advice is invest in rechargeables - lots available on Amazon.

One last thing - get a bigger memory card. All in all a great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic performance for the money 3 Jan 2007
By Mike M
We bought this camera for our 10 yr old daughter and we've all been highly impressed by the results. There are excellent features for the money (4x optical zoom, use of AA batteries, auto-rotation of portrait images, in-camera panorama stitch, very easy to use, excellent Cannon software, optical viewfinder as well as LCD screen). The camera gives very good results indoors and outdoors on it's point and shoot mode, and there are a number of manual features accessible if you want them. Superb build quality - not the most compact model in the world and it is only 4MP, but in terms of value for money it is truly outstanding.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very easy to use. 27 Feb 2007
Verified Purchase
Before I bought this camera, I owned a Powershot S20 for 5 years. Before that I had a Sureshot so I have been using Canons for many years.

The Powersot S20 was very fiddly to use and the battery usage was horrendous. What we wanted was a small, light "point and shoot" camera that we could use anywhere. That's why we bought the A430 and I have to say we are delighted with it.

The A430 uses normal AA batteries which is very convenient. It is very "intuitive " to use and it gives really good results. You can also make short video clips with sound.

I can thoroughly recommend this camera.
