Canon PowerShot A620
January 6, 2006
Canon has always been a very good digital camera manufacturer and no doubt they continued that reputation when they designed the Canon PowerShot A620. This camera packs ease-of-use with lots of professional features all inside a lightweight case making it a great choice for the moderate picture taker to enthusiast photographer.
To start, the PowerShot A620 is 7-megapixels, which is a step up from the usual 5-megapixel
The case of the PowerShot A620 is a very stylish metal-gray color with a large LCD display
In terms of shooting modes, the Canon PowerShot A620 doesn't come up short. Some of the modes include snapshooting, automatic timed shooting, manual shots, as well as video capture. Many of you will probably never even use most of the advanced photo capture settings. Some of these settings include black/white level adjustment, sharpening, color tones, ISO settings, and much more.
You can of course adjust the scene modes as well. The modes include Snow, Beach, Foliage, Fireworks, and Kids and Pets. There is also a portrait and landscape orient setting so you don't
One really awesome feature of the PowerShot A620 is the Flexizone grid overlay option which overlays a subtile grid over the LCD screen to help you line up your shot alone a straight edge. You can also offset your subjects and use Flexizone to change the focal point to get certain objects in the foreground (or background) in focus for that dramatic shot. The video shooting aspect of the A620 is quite nice too. You can choose from 30 or 60fps (frames per second) and store up to 60 seconds of video on your MMC/SD chip inside the camera.
The A620 performs quite nicely too with good shutter speeds compared to other digital cameras.
In review, the Canon PowerShot A620 is an excellent choice for anyone who wants a 7-megapixel camera or anyone who has an older 5-megapixel or less digital camera. Its got loads of features, shooting options, and modes that will please anyone that wants to have some control over their images.
Pros: Great image quality, solid performance, lots of useful features, easy to use, excellent
button layout and navigation
Cons: Not as fast as other cameras, flimsy covers for MMC/SD and multimedia hookups
