digitalcamerareview.com review the Powershot A520.
This is a 4x zoom compact 4 megapixel Digital Camera from Canon and is available in the UK for about 170 pound. Conveniently it takes AA batteries.
They say ‘The Powershot A520 retains all of the best features of its predecessor and actually improves substantially on what was already a “best in class” digicam.’
but its not all good: ‘The A520’s new 4X zoom isn’t as sharp as the A85’s 3X optic. Low light focusing seems to be slower with the A520 than it was with the A85’
