Canon A620

Consumer Reports rates the Canon A620 #1. Wouls you agree? I currently have the Nikon Coolpix 4300 and it takes great pictures but the lag time is slow and I want more megapuxels. I am also worried that the A620 may be too large for carrying around all the time since I always have my camera with me.

Is there a better camera for me or will the A620 be my best choice?

The A620 is certainly a winner.
You get a lot for your money.
Including manual controls, a very sharp lens and low shutter lag (0.2 second).

Take a look at what owners say about the A620:

A very nice smaller camera can be found but it will not measure up to the features and performance of the A620.

I don't know of any small camera with a lens as sharp as the one on the A620.

Your Nikon 4300 is just about the same size and weight as the Canon A620.

I'd agree

I'd agree with snapshot. I think if you can cary your Nikon then you can carry that.

Important to remember what consumer reports considers and what you consider. CR usually comes to a good conclusion considering price. People who come to these sort of forums typically have more money to spend but the A620 is an exceltent choice

Thank you snapshot and eeadams

Thank you snapshot and eeadams. I am glad to hear you both think the A620 is an excellent choice. I'm not on a tight budget but do like that you get a lot for the price with the A620. Thanks again for your input.
