The Canon PowerShot A620 continues Canon's
tradition of providing an entry-level digital
camera packed full with many of the features found
on more expensive models.
The Canon A620 is the top-of-the-line A series
model and is an attractive, medium compact and
affordable digital camera perfect for an aspiring
photographer. It can be used as a point-and-shoot
camera in Auto or Program AE mode, but it's attractiveness
lies in the high-end features and flexible exposure
control it provides: Shutter-Priority, Aperture-Priority,
full Manual, plus easy to use Scene Modes. Operation
is fast with no practical shutter lag and control
One of the more interesting feature is the 2.0
in. LCD that flips out and rotates. Battery life
is very good with the use of 4 AA Alkaline batteries.
With excellent image quality (better than on
some higher-end models), flexible exposure control,
ease-of-use, precise Auto Focus and fast operations,
the Canon A620 can handle any photographic situation
you throw at it.
As far as optional accessories go, the Canon
A620 has wide-angle and telephoto lenses, an external
High-Power Flash, and there is even an underwater
marine case for those who fancy underwater photography.
With its ease of use, advanced features in an
entry-level camera, Canon quality optics, DIGIC
II image processor, excellent battery life, and
affordable price, the Canon PowerShot A620
is one of the best value for money.
