The PowerShot A460's 5.0 megapixels of resolution give every shot added depth and dimension. You'll notice the fine details and ravishing colors. The sharpness and clarity of your enlargements will also astound you. Plus, the 4x optical zoom lens makes it simple to shoot close-ups, scenery and anything else with the brilliance and flawless clarity that have built Canon's reputation worldwide. To make shooting and playback convenient and easy, there's a big, clear 2.0-inch LCD screen.

Advanced imaging technology improves every photo

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.

PowerShot A460 is equipped with a 16:9 widescreen option that lets you shoot still photos and movies in a format that's specially made for viewing on widescreen television sets or your computer monitor.

It's small enough to fit into your palm and fits into the front pants pocket easily and is light enough that the camera is not really noticeable after a few minutes. It seems to me that Canon designed it to be carried without a camera case because there is a lens shield that pulls into place to cover the lens whenever it is powered off. (The lens retracts into the camera body when it is powered off, and the lens cover pulls into place automatically). The body is well rounded with no sharp edges anywhere that might catch parts of clothing. The LCD screen is exposed but I pasted one of those see-thru LCD screen plastic protectors (sticky on one side) on it to protect it from scratches. All the camera's openings are well protected by covers. The only cover that I thought had a little more play than it should was the battery cover.
The camera powers up extremely quickly. You can focus with either the viewfinder or the LCD screen. One thing that surprised me was that when using the viewfinder, there is no information shown on the viewfinder other than a green light to indicate that the camera is in focus or a blinking orange light to indicate it is not. The LCD mode shows a lot more info (eg, ISO speed, current resolution, etc). But, I guess it makes sense since this is a camera that is meant to be simple, and what could be simpler than knowing when something is in focus or not. That's pretty much all the info that's needed. (Switching to the viewfinder will conserve battery power).Read more ›
The A460 does not have the auto-rotate feature to save photos in the appropriate portrait or landscape modes. The battery and SD card are accessed through a common door, which doesn't have quite the snap and tight fit of the A520's smaller separate doors. The handshake symbol also tends to show up often when taking indoor pictures with the flash disabled - something I don't even think about with the A520. The zoom buttons were actually more intuitive to use than I expected. But I do prefer the SET button in the center of the joypad on the A520, as I tend to forget to reach down and to the left for the SET button on the A460.
But I'm nit-picking here. Otherwise, it's a great point-and-shoot camera, with a great zoom lens, and at a great price.
-it's faster - the powerup and shot to shot speed are excellent.
-it's easy to learn and use.
-it focuses better and quicker in macro mode.
-The flash works well and quickly, and creates reasonably pleasing light in a variety of circumstances.
-The images in sunlight or reasonably bright cloudy circumstances are fine.
BUT - the images at lower light, without flash, are unusably noisy - a major drawback for me as my intended use is to take a small light camera with me on my evening walks and jogs. If low-light photos aren't important to you, it's a fine choice.
It's pretty easy on batteries, as long as you don't use the flash. I put some cheaper Rayovac alkaline batteries (size AA) in it after the first set went dead and the camera has no problem with them. The flash drains the batteries quickly though - I didn't count the number of photos, but I probably only got 20 or 30 flash photos before the "low battery" warning started blinking. But the warning comes early - you can take another 15 or so photos after the low battery warning pops up. I don't know how many it'll take without the flash, but it's a lot more than when you're using the flash.
The upside is that this camera is VERY sensitive to light, so it hardly even needs a flash. Frankly, as on most compact cameras, the flash sucks. It's too bright and flattens images. But if you have decent lighting indoors, the thing is so light sensitive it takes good photos without the flash. I suppose you'd need the flash if you were taking photos inside someplace dark, like a pub or bar, but in places like houses where there are usually plenty of lights on, it does great without a flash.
It'll record up to an hour of video on a 1G SD card, which is great, because it also has a mic that works perfectly so you get good audio too.
The photos are great - crystal clear and sharp.Read more ›

Camera is very good and reliable. The AA batteries do not last very long though, which can be frustrating. Otherwise it is a solid Canon camera that takes very nice snapshots.Published on December 1, 2010 by Elise890
