Luv the camera, hate waiting for it to charge flash and actually shoot the pic. It does not take very good quality pictures. The resolution is horrible and no matter how many times you run through the setup, there is no obvious place or entry in the manual to set resolution. You just have to live with the grainy pics or do like us, stick the think in a drawer and forget you have it.

When looking at any product it is important to remember the price, and the market it was designed for.
It would be unrealistic to expect this camera (or any P&S model) to produce the same results as a DSLR, and it doesn't. However, it takes better photos and video than any other P&S camera I have ever tried.

The Canon A810 is compact and lightweight, making easy to carry.
It uses 2 AA rechargeable batteries, instead of a proprietary cell, so it's easy to carry a spare set.of batteries. It also uses conventional SD-HC memory cards.
The screen is big and bright - perfect for aiming or reviewing.
The menu is easy to navigate, and the controls are simply to understand and use.
The included USB cable allows image and video downloading to any Windows-based PC without installing any additional software. The set-up is automatic and take only minutes.

The photo quality is excellent, with good color matching, contrast and sharpness. The flash is small but powerful, and does a good job of illuminating indoor scenes.
The video quality is also excellent, with good image stabilization and continuous focus. The sound quality is also good.

I am not a fan of "Digital Zoom" which is basically cropping. However, the 16 MP image has a high enough resolution to get away with it.
As noted, the camera body is small and the finish might make it feel slippery. Use the included wrist strap to avoid dropping it.

All in all, I think this camera is an excellent value, with an attractive price-point.

Very speedy delivery from Amazon. I gave this camera to my husband to take on trips in the mountains. He likes it - is small and easy to use.
