With a 5.0-megapixel CCD a 4x lens and a full range of exposure control, the Canon PowerShot A530 is another fine addition to Canon's A-series of digital cameras.
Built on the same long-tested design as many A-series predecessors, the Canon A530 offers a lot in its compact package. Its combination of automatic and manual features make the Canon A530 very approachable for novices, but still interesting for experienced users. It's a camera that will satisfy a broad range of interests and provide a good path for novice users to expand their photographic horizons as their experience grows. You can even put it in a waterproof case.
One of the more popular features of the A-series is their use of AA batteries, something we also like. Movie mode is present, but somewhat lacking in terms of frame rate. Still, the Canon A530 is a camera that will meet the needs of the average consumer very well and deliver great images. What more can you ask? See the full Canon A530 review for more.
