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.

Here's my opinion of the top-selling "A" series cameras:
7TH PLACE: Featuring Canon's acclaimed Digic III processor, the 2007-model A560 includes the company's face-detection metering system and a decent red-eye removal. It's a nice camera, but a better value is the new A470 (see below). $150 list.
6TH PLACE: The A570IS is the same camera as the A560 but with optical image stabilization and the ability to shoot manually. $200 list.
5TH PLACE: You can do a lot with the sweet little A630. It's a 2006 model, but has a flip-out LCD panel and lots of manual controls. The shots I've seen from this model look great. Keep your ISO under 800 and you won't get any noise. $350 list. (Canon offers a 2007 version of this camera that I haven't had much experience with yet, the A650 IS. It also lists for $350.Read more ›
The bottom line is he had one day to learn how to use the camera and then spent a week in Boston with his class. His photos were great and his camera experience was excellent...and I didn't break the bank for to purchase it either :)
Just keep in mind, that this camera works well if your subject is stationary. It is not for action shots. I have tried to take pictures of my kids playing in the yard and pictures usually come out blurry. Also, there is a bit of a lag time for the picture to be taken. Therefore, I have a tendency to miss the shot.
