The A470 is Canon's entry level camera but it has been rated as very good.
Not a lot of bells and whistles, just good pictures.
It comes with AA Alkaline batteries which will only last about 30-40 pictures.
But you can buy rechargeable AA NiMH batteries/charger for a bit over $10.
They will last about 4 times longer on one charge.
Hi Everyone. First time on the forum.
I had a very bad week. My mother-in-law dropped my Canon SD1000 in the pool. We dried it out...and it still works. However it seems like the whites are awefully bright and "bleed" throught out the pictures. I think my camera is a goner.
Anyhow the next day my printer died Murphys law I guess. So I went to Radio Shack to look around for some replacements and I found a clearance bundle deal. I broungt a Canon pixma ip4600 printer and Canon power shot A470 for $100 NIB(thats all I had too lol).
I'm pretty sure my Canon SD1000 is DOA...so will the A470 be just as good? The mega pixals are the same(7.1)..and they are both Canons...Im hoping I got some luck buying this camera.
Thanks for any responses
PS I'm a typical point and shoot kind of guy. I keep all the setting on Auto.
