    I use this mostly to take pictures of my four year old. It is almost identical to the model from eight years ago just lighter and better resolution. The macro is remarkably good.

        Comments about PowerShot A810 Digital Camera (Black):

        I am ashamed to admit that the internal mic on this point and shoot sounded better than my 5D Mark II.

        This is a nice little camera you can put in your pocket and quickly shoot JPEG or Video with.

            Perfect size to carry along to get that quick picture. Only problem was that the User's Guide was written in Spanish. Was not asked what language I desired.

              small, lightweight, easy to use. takes HD video. i'm not a big fan of taking video with point and shoots, but this one is pretty good.

              SImple interface with the buttons, although i felt like the scene mode selector could be a little more intuitive.

              Love the simplicity of this camera, a good overall camera at a nice price. It could have some more additional creative features to allow for some effects but an all around good camera for all types of different shooting situations.

                  This a great camera for the price and is very portable. It is great in low light and this was experienced by me when I turned off all the lights in my house and took a picture. It came out as if the lights were on in the area that I took the picture in. It also is very easy to use and to learn the features and effects that you can apply to the camera when taking pictures

                  Comments about PowerShot A810 Digital Camera (Black):

                  I bought this camera to use for afocal astrophotography. I use it with two different telescopes. It's main advantages include small size, light weight, 16mp resolution, self timer and AA battery power. I mostly operate it in Program mode. It would be nice if it had full manual mode, but that's not commonly available with cameras in this price range.

                          I have been experimenting with the various functions on this camera.I'm having fun with the different effects-like fisheye and miniature.

                          Perfect for having around wherever--shopping, hiking, vacationing. The perfect all around camera. Takes up as much room as a medium/small size cell phone so is easy to tuck in pocket. Have not had long enough to see about length of battery usage, but love, love the use of AA batteries which are available just about anywhere.

                              We bought this for my father-in-law for Father's Day. He loves it! Large buttons, very user friendly, strong durability.
