I decided on the Canon A495 as I wanted an inexpensive camera to carry around in my bag for unexpected shots. For those of you who want a good basic camera from a well-known camera company, this one should fit your needs well.

Are you trying to decide between the A495 and the next model lower, the A490? Here are the differences:

· The A495 has a Face Self-Timer feature. You can focus on a group of people, and before the camera takes the shot, run over and get into the picture yourself, with your face being detected, too. Of course, you would also need a tripod or a place to set the camera down.

· The A495 has two (2) additional Scene Modes: Poster Effect and Super Vivid Color. Nice to have the additional scenes, but how often will you use them? I plan on making some art for my living room walls with the Poster Effect scene, so I opted for the A495.

· The A495 will focus on up to 9 faces (or areas); whereas the A490 will focus on up to 5 faces (or areas).

I would have given this camera 5 stars if it wasn't so darn slow on the recycling time after taking a photo. It flashes "busy" on the LCD screen and it is frustrating when you are waiting to take another shot.

NOTE #1: This camera does not come with an SD card, so pick one up when buying the camera as you will not be able to use it right out of the box otherwise. This camera will accept SDHC cards up to/including 32 GB.

NOTE #2: The PSC-500 genuine Canon case Canon PSC-500 Deluxe Soft Case fits this camera perfectly, but there is no extra room for spare batteries. It's a snug fit, but it's well padded too.

NOTE #3: For those of you looking for a camera that can put a date stamp on your pictures, this one does. You have your choice of date only or date and time - or none at all.

Simple, easy to use, feels good in the hands and it does take great pictures.
A great choice for a first digital camera.
It's the perfect camera to have if you're on a budget but want to capture great quality pictures.

A 2.5 sec delay between shots with out the flash, ( with the flash on the avg is around. 3 TO 6 secs ), and start up time is 1.6 sec.

*The camera does not have optical image stabilization.

*No memory card included with this camera*.

I use a 2gig san disk sd card ultra II(you do not get one with the camera) that gives you about 750 pictures.

I use 2 AA energizer (lithium batterys)(or 2650-2900 mAH rechargables) and that gets about 500-550 pictures . You would not be happy with just standerd AA battery life.
Walmarts, Meijers stores have a 8 pack of AA energizer lithium batterys for about $16.80,they seem to last for ever. I just use these like for vacation or a hloidays, for just every day shooting I use (good) rechargeables.

The AA batterys are probably the reason the LCD screen takes so long to recharge after the flash goes off (and to take the next picture) even with the good batterys it is recharging the flash up to 8sec on a (full flash) recharge and the times that are stated above...

I set the disp overlay to grid lines to help take a straighter picture, You may use it for the 1/3 rule also).

Cons: None for this price point.

i've had many digital point & shoots in the past and i've got to say that the A495 is simply the best. here you have a camera you can take pictures with with ease in automatic mode and then further your picture taking skills with both the program mode and the settings mode. for anyone with experience in digital cameras, the aforementioned settings are familiar territory- but one should know, never has navigating the settings been easier and faster. not only is this a handy little camera to have around for those 'just in case' moments, but it is a great camera to grow with. i really wish that this was my very first introduction to the digital camera world! put in a little effort and viola! in no time, you're taking pictures worth framing. at 10 mega pixels, these shots can be blown up to poster size, suitable for hanging!!
the camera also comes with a video mode- great for shooting small video clips, an AV cable- to attach to your TV set to watch your pics & videos on the big screen, a USB cable- to upload your pics/vids to your computer for editing, and a disk with a pdf instruction manual, and the solid Canon Zoom browser for editing your pics.
in all, a perfect pocket sized camera not only for the person that doesn't feel like lugging around something bigger & more expensive, but for someone on a tight budget that wants something with quality and the ability to learn with.
(honorable mention has to go to the 'posterize' camera setting. i included some of the pics i took in this mode- i'm absolutely addicted to shooting with this setting in widescreen!!!)
finally, nothing is without flaws: if i absolutely HAD to find fault with this camera this would be it:
1. AA battery life (definitely bring backup batteries- or better yet, rechargables)
