canon powershot A810 digital compactcamera
on 30 March 2013
i bought this camera for my holidays this year in the leeds area. Cheap, pocketsize, quick snapshots availability without complicated settings, had to have AA batteries were my criteria. (as i never take my best camera on holiday in case it gets damaged / stolen etc..) i have had canon powershot cameras in the past and generally they're very good. the A810 produces some good pictures, but alas, no battery power indicator which is fairly important when on the move, i strongly recommend choosing a different camera as the zoom is a power drain and twice so far the batteries have given up on me. paying a little extra for a better camera is more beneficial than carrying around a pocket full of AA batteries even if you do alternatively use rechargeables. i have found that rechargeable 2900 ma/h manufactured by extreme bought from the internet last a long time.
