I want to say this is a super camera.Great to say It comes with a low price tag, but is capable of producing better pictures than many more expensive digital cameras.Its sharpness of the photos is eye catching and I also liked the colours showing in my test shots.

Canon PowerShot A495 It is a blow for anyone more interested in photo quality on camera detects features.The the number of faces in the picture and then wait for a face be detected before the timer. This allows photographers to take his time to enter the picture.

This is a best buy camera! It’s image quality is better than some of more expensive models. The 1cm macro is a flick of Canon to the other manufacturers nose. There are models with 8-10cm macro mode! :D That’s funny. 10 cm is NOT macro, it’s just near.. But don’t expect a lot of alkaline batteries - use rechargeable NiMH batteries with a charger, or use long life lithium batteries.

This is a great little camera.
I bought it as a spare and find I use it often as I carry it with me.
The low price means I’m not so worried about having it in my bag or car.
I really enjoy using this camera for macro shots.
It has limitations- low light shooting and camera shake, but once this is understood, it is easy to work around.
I make sure the camera is stable for good macro results.
I find it also takes pleasing candid people shots with no fuss.
I like the timer functions.

Excel camera @ this kind of price tag!!!..Just amazing color and detail at daylight. :)Night/ low light shots are nice too. I am satisfied using this camera for almost 2 years,  and I have become a Canon PowerShot fanboy.. :p

I agree, this camera is really bad as far as battery consumption goes.  Half the time it doesn’t recognise I have put new batteries in. Going to try better batteries and if that doesn’t work, get a better camera. Its ok for taking pictures - terrible for videos and the sound is virtually not existing, terrible. Needs improvement in video and sound and battery life.

Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable batteries solved all my battery issues.  They don’t lose charge overnight like some rechargeables.

I tried other rechargeable batteries which didn’t solve the problem and took the camera back for a refund. Terrible battery consumption. Would not recommend this camera to anyone.
