DCRP’s Jeff Keller has reviewed the Canon PowerShot A540, a 6.0 megapixels (CCD sensor) point-and-shoot digital camera featuring 4x Optical Zoom lens (35-140mm equivalent) and a 2.5″ LCD screen.
“Overall I was very impressed with the photos I took with the PowerShot A540. They were well-exposed with accurate color, low noise, and a nice “smooth” look. The ISO 400 cat photo in the gallery was a bit grainy when printed at 4 x 6, but after a little noise reduction (in software) it looked a lot better. While purple fringing annoyed me a bit in the night test shot, it wasn’t a major problem in any of my gallery photos. “
