I hope you are talking about the Canon Powershot A540.. Wel let me tell you this, I own it and i'll tell you my experience. After a lot of researching (probably for about 4 months) i bought this camera.. And i should tell that this camera is simply amazing!! As for the pice i got it for around $170.. It takes great pictures and is very highly rated by most sites.. It has everything you'll need in a camera, Aperture and shutter priority modes, program and manual modes, ISO upto 800, many screen presets.. The best thing i like about it is that it has a larger number of automatic modes and features for amateurs and more advanced manual features for more advanced photographer.. This is the best in its price range. Well if anybody can find a better camera in this price then please let me know.. But i can bet on that.. You could also see my reviews about this camera on cnet.. Also check this site out..
I highly recommend this camera..
Considering this camera as a replacememnt for my old one. Have heard good and bad. Any opinions or is there a camera that is better in this price range? Thanks,
