Canon PowerShot A430 Digital Camera Review

Though it doesn’t have the manual control that some of the other A-series cameras boast, there are 14 exposure modes to get creative with, as well as Stitch-Assist mode for capturing panoramas, a Movie mode, and a Continuous mode for capturing up to 2.3 frames per second. If you’re looking to travel light on a budget and still bring home great pictures, the A430 or the above A460 (the main difference is 5MP instead of 4MP) would be a choice.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
