The A performed very well in the macro category, capturing a minimum area of 2. The A is an attractive compact and lightweight digicam that is slightly smaller than its predecessor.

Like most Canon cameras, the A shifts cyan colors slightly toward pure blues, apparently the reason for its excellent sky colors.

This canob doesn’t belong on poeer page. We spent about two hours shooting rapidly moving skateboarders traveling at truly dangerous speeds. Based on the “standard” mAh NiMH cells that I’ve used shpt a basis of comparison for the last several years, worst-case run time is projected at minutes in record mode with the LCD turned on.
