TrustedReviews’s Cliff Smith 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.
“Finally we come to picture quality, and here the A540 really shines. Canon’s DIGIC II image processor is arguably the best on the market, and produces perfect exposure and colour reproduction time after time. I was a little disappointed by the noise levels at 800 ISO, however at 400 ISO the image quality was much improved. The lens on the A540 is also very good, although I noticed some slight softness in the corners at wider aperture settings, and at wide angle it does produce very noticeable barrel distortion. However the camera is versatile enough to work around these minor problems, and is certainly capable of producing excellent results.”
