Popular Photography’s Bill Schiffner has posted a review of Canon PowerShot A430, a 4.0 megapixels (CCD sensor) point-and-shoot digital camera with 4x Optical Zoom lens (39 – 156mm equivalent), and a 1.8″ LCD screen
“The A430 is a very compact and ergonomic unit. The camera’s brushed metal construction feels very comfortable in your hand and the various control buttons are well placed throughout the body and easily accessed by your fingertips. One negative, however, the zoom button is located on the back of the camera so it takes a little getting used to when you are using the viewfinder to frame your shot and trying to zoom….
All in all, the Powershot A430 has a host of features to suit a consumer looking at making the leap to digital photography. It’s compact, easy to use and has a 4x optical zoom. In addition, Canon has added some of the latest features normally found on some of their higher end models making it one very efficient camera.”
