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 is intuitive.

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.
