The 2. To accommodate the larger file sizes generated by its greater resolution, the A is compatible with SDHC memory cards. The A is also more energy efficient. The A can shoot at ISO , but the image quality there is barely adequate for snapshots. Still, decent-looking 5x7 inch prints at ISO are pretty surprising for a basic, affordable camera these days. Pocket Size?
I particularly mention size because the features and performance of this camera make it a great all-around, take-anywhere camera, so users are likely to want to pack it along with them wherever they go. If you really need tiny, look elsewhere, but the A is very portable, while avoiding some of the optical and performance trade-offs found in many subcompact models. Function menu: Allows you to make quick adjustments via the LCD. User Interface.
For more sweeping mode changes, the Canon A uses a conventional Mode Dial on the top of the camera body, with options for fully automatic operation, "Manual" mode, five common Scene modes, an SCN setting that offers a number of less-common Scene options, and Movie mode. The camera chooses every other setting, and generally does a very good job of it.
Top controls: Power, mode dial, zoom controls and shutter. A tried-and-true control interface. These are a great way for novice photographers to bring back good-looking photos from what otherwise would be tricky shooting situations. The only significant feature missing from earlier Canon models is a stitch-assist mode for making panoramic photos from multiple overlapping exposures. This means the camera divides the scene into 9 areas, and focuses on what it thinks are the most important parts.
Usually the subjects closest to the camera. The screen shot at right shows Face Detection in action, with the camera pointed at my computer screen with several of our standard "Marti shots" displayed on it. You can see that the camera picked the face in the upper left as the primary one. I had been moving the camera around a bit, that one was picked when it was nearer the center of the screen, and the camera continued tracking it as it moved away from center.
The other two faces show the grey secondary-face brackets around them. Very slick! All in all, the Canon A was pretty responsive in our tests, although it was just a little sluggish in continuous mode. Start-up was pretty quick, capturing the first image just 1.
In continuous mode, the A managed only 1. Not bad, but we expected more from its Digic III processor. The Canon A offers a , pixel, 2. That said though, more pixels would definitely be nice. The LCD screen did get a little washed out in bright sunlight but never became totally unusable.
Grid and mask: Turning on the grid helps you frame your shots, and the mask shows you how your shots will look printed on 4x6 paper. I very often find myself using the Grid overlay on digicams that offer this feature. Having an alignment grid displayed on-screen is a handy reminder, not to mention a useful tool for getting the alignment just right. Overlay option. This lets you see what part of the image will fit into a 4x6 inch print. The screen shot at left shows both features in play.
Shot from A, A is identical. The Canon A is powered by a pair of AA batteries, convenient if you need to find power in remote parts of the world. They have a very long shelf-life and pack lots of power, so you can just stash a couple of them in your camera bag, and always have a backup power source at hand.
One piece of good news though, is how sparingly the A sips power: Even normal alkaline batteries last a surprisingly long time in it. ISO ? The Canon A sports ISO settings as high as , and does better than many compact cameras at that setting. At ISO , color suffers somewhat, and even 4x6 inch prints show very noticeable grain.
A grainy picture is perhaps better than one blurred by too much subject or camera motion, but as a consumer, you need to take really high ISO ratings for compact digicams with a large grain of salt. This is quite an achievement compared to what was possible just a couple of years ago. You can easily make 13x19 inch prints from them, if you have a printer that can handle paper that large.
Most homes in the US use incandescent or warm-white compact fluorescent lighting, very warm-hued light sources that are very hard for many digital cameras to handle properly. The Canon PowerShot A is an excellent basic digital camera for all-around usage. While not as small as many subcompacts, it fits in most pants pockets or larger purses, and avoids some of the optical, image quality, and performance trade-offs that are often found in subcompact models. It offers a lot of capability and great looking images for the money, and a range of features that should suit beginning through intermediate photographers very well.
If you have just a little more money, you might consider the A IS, which adds a few higher-end features from the ELPH series in about the same form factor, as well as an image-stabilized lens for sharper shots under dim lighting.
