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.

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.

I purchased this camera for my 11 year old daughter. She wanted one for a class camping trip.. It's small, lightweight and takes quite nice pictures. The camera housing could be a little more durable, but what do you expect from a starter camera. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting a starter camera for their kid, of perhaps, a second camera that you keep in your glovebox.

It does what it needs to, though i was falsely led when buying it about the price of silver and black being 15$ different, and the fact it has no "sports" setting,and i find it very tricky to stop blurs from the slightest motion in my photos.
the flash is VERY powerful, and it's good in low lighting.
a great pocket camera.

I am pleased with the performance for small money. Surely the next camera will be a Cannon. What is missing is a decent instruction book. Bought a 8 GB memory card. Plenty of picture beyond my wildest dreams, yet should have been 16 GB for movie taking.

I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a memory card included with the camera, but other than that I'm extremely pleased with it. Not a big deal though. I really can't complain about that - the price was right.
