PowerShot A470 Highlights
Powered by AA batteries Conveniently, you dont need to worry about running out or recharging of batteries. Since AA-size batteries can be purchased at any store, simply get new ones locally.
DIGIC III image processor With DIGIC III, your images boast superior quality, the camera operates at top efficiency and battery life is enhanced. Whats more, DIGIC III enables Canons Face Detection Technology and Red-eye Correction to give you better, more true-to-life people shots. Simply press the Shutter Button halfway down, and the camera automatically pinpoints the faces in the scene and chooses the ideal focus point. The camera controls exposure settings and flash to keep every face looking bright and natural. Red-eye Correction can be handled in-camera, in two ways. The entirely new Red-eye Correction during shooting uses the Face Detection Technology to recognize and remove red-eye from flash images as they're taken, before the file is written to the memory card. It's also possible to correct red-eye during image playback, using simple settings in the A470's menu.
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 III Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.
Red-eye Correction Red-eye correction provides three options for removing red-eye from subjects in flash pictures.
- The new Red-eye Correction during shooting actually identifies and corrects red-eye in human subjects as pictures are taken.
- The A470 can be set to automatically detect and correct red-eye during image playback.
- The user can manually locate any red eyes in a scene during image playback on the LCD screen, and command the camera to remove them.
14 Shooting Modes including 10 Special Scene Modes With 14 shooting modes to choose from, youre ready for whatever shot comes your way.
Vertical shooting is fast and easy The PowerShot A470 lets you shoot great Vertical Images -- everything from tall buildings to fun, family photos -- more conveniently. Turn the camera, then just press the Print/Share Button. Instantly, the camera displays your scene in the proper vertical orientation. You dont have to worry about re-arranging your hand position. Youre free to concentrate on setting your scene, composing your shot or coaxing subjects to smile.
Sleek, modern design in 4 bold colors The PowerShot A470 tells the world who you are. Its refined, distinctive design is a perfect reflection of your good taste and individual style. But it's just the beginning of what makes this camera so uniquely you. The PowerShot A470 is available in a choice of four exciting and dramatic colors. Choose the one that perfectly reveals your personality, your singular style or your point of view. There's Gray, Blue, Red or Orange. No matter which color you choose, the PowerShot A470 will keep the attention focused on you.

Yes, it goes through batteries quickly, I HIGHLY recommend the powerful eneloop rechargables for this camera. Also, get a 2GB or 4GB card when purchasing this camera or just lower the mega-pixels to 3 or 5.

No Image Stabilization
I have not deciphered how to easily remove mass photos from the camera on my Macintosh. Camera seems to be one-by-one delete. I guess I could drop and dump when the camera is on my desktop downloading photos.
Still playing around with the camera with time I don't have currently to discover all the cool features. Downloading is a snap, and similar to most cameras. I also appreciated the use of a SD memory card. You can buy them anywhere. Love the orange color! Exactly what we wanted.
Fits well in our hands and pockets (a must for us). We didn't want a large camera. For the price I wouldn't be devastated to take this camera as a loss and I have been nothing but pleased to this point with this great little camera. Perfect for our needs of real estate. Clean crisp photo and not an overbearing flash. No big "blow-outs" of white to discriminate details, but again early on with the camera. Still takes a great well-sized photo and love it. I will take it also on personal trips too.
Only thing I am not crazy about are the markings of how to "hit enter or accept" on the camera. It doesn't come naturally with the icons and markings Canon chose. Just something to get used to and not second nature for me yet. Still LOVE this camera.
update 9/18/09: Camera is still working great. Lapse between photos for quick shots gets annoying after awhile, but it does the job and takes a decent photo. We use the video portion of camera still as well. This camera has been good to us overall for our quick business camera. There are many more fine tuning features we could be using as well to even further enhance the quality of our photos that I am still discovering. I love Canon cameras. Great for the price is still my feeling. (plus it's orange! LOL) ... please note I am not a professional, but I do take a decent photo. ;-)
update: 6/10: The camera has now stopped focusing and is taking horrible photos. It's done. LAME! LAME! Two years for a point shoot's survival? That's a joke. We took such kind care of this camera. Even if it were an easy fix, I wouldn't put another dime into it. Since my 9/09 review it's been downhill and shutter time was taking longer and longer to rip off shots. I grew a strong hatred of this "easy" camera. I would rather use my Digi Rebel thank you than this hunk of junk. ~ All the more reason to do review revises people. :-) Your love has to be evaluated on the long-term.
