Canon Powershot A610 | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
The Canon PowerShot A610 is standard delivered with a 16MB flash memory card, which is a nice gesture but won't be of any good to you in practice. You can make around 5 - 6 images (5 Megapixels/highest quality). Canon have enhanced their support of the Secure Digital memory card and the entire compact camera line is now supporting this tiny memory card. Except for the digital reflex cameras from the Canon assortment that are equipped with the CompactFlash memory card slots. The storage capacity of a Secure Digital (SD) card ranges from 16MB until 2GB and larger storage capacities are expected for 2006.

SanDisk Ultra II Plus Secure Digital memory card
Testing digital cameras nowadays I am using a Secure Digital memory card with a unique feature. This card, a SanDisk Ultra II Plus SD is faster than a standard SD card but additionally features another function. The remarkable thing about this SD card is the option to 'break' it in two after which a fast USB interface is freed. This way it is possible to insert the Ultra II Plus SD memory card directly from the Canon PowerShot A610 in a free USB port without the need for any cables. When trying to achieve the highest quality possible with the Canon A610 you will need a larger card. Advisable is to use at least a 256MB or a 512MB memory card.

Considering 256MB storage capacity:

Canon Powershot A610 - 2,5 frames per second
The Canon A610 is capable of sequential shooting with a speed of 2.5 frames per second (highest resolution) until the memory card runs out of capacity. This speed is average for a camera like the PowerShot A610 and most consumers will find it sufficient. This continuous shooting mode does ask more of the memory card's speed; a standard card will not always be able to process the continuous data flow that quickly. In that case it might be wise to invest in a fast memory card.

Canon A610 digital camera - 4x AA size batteries
Canon standard delivers the PowerShot A610 with 4x AA sized batteries. It wouldn't look bad on Canon if the user would find a fast charger and a set of NiMH batteries in the box. The Canon A610 is a very economical digital camera, with or without the LCD monitor activated. When the monitor isn't used often, the energy load seems to go on forever. This is probably thanks to the integration of the DIGIC II processor among other things but you can count on many hours of recording capacity. The good thing about the AA sized battery is also that you can purchase them literally on every street corner. If you lose one or if it fails, the costs to replace it are low compared to the expensive Lithium Ion battery. The economical power consumption of the PowerShot A610 is an absolute advantage and appealing in practice.
