Power up your images
With 4.0 megapixels, your images will resonate with rich depth and detail, and even enlargements will be clear and sharp. The PowerShot A430 is equipped with a 4x optical zoom lens to let you capture everything from landscapes to snapshots with the brightness and clarity genuine Canon optics are famous for. The camera's 1.8-inch LCD screen gives you an excellent view, both for shooting and reviewing your images.
Advanced imaging technology improves every photo
DIGIC II Image Processor
Canon's DIGIC II Image Processor is designed to improve processing speed and image quality, so DIGIC II provides markedly faster startup, autofocus, and playback, plus it assures that every image is more colorfully vibrant.
iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC II Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.
Capture every detail
Super Macro Mode puts you as close as an eye-opening 0.4 inches from your subject. Advanced engineering ensures that your extreme close-ups will maintain the same high level of sharpness, detail and color fidelity that you see in your standard shots. You also have other shooting modes to choose from, including Special Scene mode, which gives you breathtaking pictures even when shooting conditions are tough.
Shooting ModesAuto: The camera chooses all the settings so you can concentrate on your subject. Manual: The ultimate in creative control, you set ISO speed, exposure compensation and white balance.

Beach: Get clear shots of people at a sunny beach without darkened faces. Fireworks: Grab brilliant images of skyrocketing fireworks.

Color Accent: Choose to retain a single color in your image while other colors turn monochrome. Color Swap: Select a color and replace it with a color you specify for special effects.
