Not everyone wants a fancy digital camera with dozens of features they'll never use. For those of us who just want to take good pictures – of family barbeques, vacations, school plays, etc. – Canon offers a very nice low-cost option. It's the Canon PowerShot A410 digital camera.
The A410 is compact, lightweight, and simple. The 3.2 MP (megapixel) image sensor provides plenty of resolution for 4” x 6” prints – and even 5” x 7” if you want an occasional enlargement. It comes with a 3x zoom, so you can move in closer on the shot. And the A410 comes with 14 pre-set shooting modes – including Super Macro for ultra-close-ups, Stitch assist for panoramas and Movie mode.
All in all, an excellent option for anyone who's more interested in the pictures than in the process of taking them.
