I have had this camera for about five years now and it is still working just as well as it was when I bought it. However whilst it was a good camera when I bought it, there are now so many better cameras available that I would advise against buying it unless you just want a cheap basic camera. This camera is not fantastic at taking photos in darker conditions, and the optical zoom is only 4x. It is a 4.0 mega pixel camera, which is less than many modern camera phones; you can take perfectly good photos, but where the conditions are less than optimum, the picture quality can suffer quite a lot. However it does take decent videos (again in optimum light conditions) with ... Read the complete review

I won this in a competition a few years ago. I've been using it quite a lot lately so I thought I'd write a review about it before I pass it on to one of the godchildren. Canon Powershot A430 is a 4 megapixel digital camera with a four times optical zoom lens. When it came out, it was an entry level digital camera, this meant that it has less features and functions but as a rule made it easier for children and older people to use. This camera takes still pictures but it also does VGA quality extra long movie clips with full sound. ...The camera itself... Canon PowerShot A430 is compact and very light. I take it out with me on girls night's ... Read the complete review
