I have had this camera for over a year now and I love it. it is so easy to use which is a huge plus for me as I get very frustrated with technology it moves much faster than I can cope with!
The canon powers hot AS540 is such a lovely little compact camera. It is a perfect size to shove in your handbag and take out with you. The camera itself is lovely silver and looks very cool. The other thing I love about this camera is it does not look cheap but it does not look like a very expensive camera so I don't worry about it being stolen. My 6-year-old daughter often goes off with my camera and takes some photos, which shows how easy it is to use. All the photos I have taken with this camera have come out to a very good standard with good clear colours and sharp images. I have taken thousands of photos with this camera some I have had blown up to over A4 size and they are still great quality.
The other thing I will admit is that I have dropped this camera accidentally several times and it still works perfectly. I am very impressed with this lightweight compact camera.
the only disadvantage I can think of is that these cameras use a lot of batteries!
Got this cammera for a 8 months already and have to admit that it's a great value for many and a pleasure when watching all photos on pc.

Software allows you to things like downloading all new pictures only straight after connecting it to a PC. Preview photos and make some changes and enhancements. It's one of not many cameras to which you can buy seperately a waterproof case or lenses.
Overall I give it a note excelent as this camera - Cannon A540 has never failed me.

This camera is fantastic. Being 6 megapixel the quality is brilliant and it is extremely easy to use. Apart from perhaps the switch between 'play' and 'camera' mode - which I find you need nails to use.
The design looks sexy and although its chunky build is perhaps more suitable for a man, you are still are able to fit it in a (large) handbag.
Retailing at about 157 pounds this camera is a fantastic buy!
I have been using it for years. It is very easy to use. Even newbie for digi things can learn to handle it in a very short time. The picture quality is very very good. It may be the best among the similar digicamrerals. I like very much the design. It's a real human design. The only weakness is the price compared with other competitors like hp and kodak. Overall, I highly recommend it. it is the best entry level digi cameral.
