A well-priced entry-level cam
The 5 MegaPixel Canon PowerShot A460 is out to make a point that you don’t need to have an expensive digital camera to take good shots. While a bit bulky, the A460 still looks OK. You can choose from five modes for different types of photo and video shooting and previewing.
The custom timer lets you choose the timing and the number of the shots to be taken. The Slow Synchro synchronises the flash with slower shutter speeds to effectively prevent background blackouts while using the flash.
The quality of the photos is pretty good—not too vibrant or enhanced, but some purple fringing can be seen along bright edges.
Movie recording performance is pretty appalling with just 10 fps at 640 x 480.
One irritant is that the camera must be switched to Playback mode to transfer images. ZoomBrowser EX, a plain-looking bundled software, enables the camera to send images to a PC at a press of a button.
You get a set of batteries but no charger. The camera is well priced at Rs 9,795. It’s an easy camera and good for beginners, and will allow you to take some impressive shots as well.
