Canon PowerShot A620

Rarely do people come across cameras that aim to come up with something for everyone; most people have to be content with what is offered to them rather than asking for more than it. Imagine a compact camera that lets the user decide when to have all the controls in his hand and when to just leave the camera to think for itself. Most consumers would just grab a camera like that, won’t they? Well, the Canon PowerShot A620 is one such compact point and shoot camera that offers controls like Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority for those who would like controls in their hands as well as various shot modes for those who are too lazy to think! This is a simple 7.1mp and 4x zoom camera.

Design and Functioning

The PowerShot A620 will easily fit into a small camera bag. The overall finish of the Canon PowerShot A620 belies its price tag - this is a camera that looks and feels a lot more expensive than it actually is. The stylish silver plastic body is very well constructed with nothing feeling flimsy or ill-thought out. Apart from Metallic Silver, this camera is also available in Electric Blue colour. The Canon PowerShot A620 offers Auto, Program, Shutter-priority, Aperture-priority and Manual exposure modes plus 11 different scene modes (Portrait, Landscape, Night Scene, Night Snapshot, Kids & Pets, Indoor, Foliage, Snow, Beach, Fireworks, Underwater). The maximum aperture is f2.8 (wide) – f4.1 (tele), and the shutter speed range is 15 seconds – 1/2500 seconds. There are 4 ISO speeds ranging from 50 to 400 and an Auto option. There are 6 different White Balance presets to choose from (Daylight, Cloudy, Tungsten, Fluorescent, Fluorescent H and Underwater), plus Auto and Custom settings. The camera offers exposure compensation in ± 2 in 1/3 EV stops. It also offers a number of different photo effects on offer - Vivid, Neutral, Low Sharpening, Sepia, Black & White, and My Colors (with 9 settings). The Super Macro setting allows the user to focus on subjects that are as close as 1cm. This camera is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.
