Canon PowerShot A620 | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
The Canon PowerShot comes with a 32MB memory card. In combination with the 7 Megapixels resolution, this gesture gives little cause to celebrate. With a bit of luck, you can make just 9 recordings (largest resolution, highest quality) and that's not much if you are on holiday. The camera supports the Secure Digital memory card and this small card is the only one Canon supports in its entire range of digital compact cameras. This little card has become more or less a standard all over the world and is supported by the vast majority of manufacturers as well as by Canon. The Secure Digital card's storage capacity ranges from 16MB to 2GB. Although it would be obvious to have larger storage capacities, the present range of cameras still only support 2GB maximum.

Canon PowerShot A620 - Secure Digital memory card
With almost 2 frames per second, the Canon PowerShot A620 is not exactly a speed devil, but it does allow the user to take a quick action shot. If you use a fast memory card it will be possible to shoot a card full at the same speed. A standard memory card cannot process that amount of information so quickly, so users wanting to use the camera's top speeds would be wise to choose a fast memory card.

Considering 512MB of storage capacity:

SanDisk Ultra II Plus SD memory card
For taking test shots and testing speed, I mostly use a SanDisk Ultra II Plus SD card, if the camera supports Secure Digital. This manufacturer has added something very remarkable to this fast memory card; a USB interface. This is handy because when you remove the card with recordings from the camera, you can bend it in two and plug it directly into a free USB port. The camera and cables are no longer necessary and that's convenient! If you want to get the most out of the Canon PowerShot A620, it is advisable to enlarge it with a fast memory card with at least 256MB or 512MB storage capacity.

Canon A620 - 4x AA format alkaline batteries
The PowerShot A620 is delivered with 4 x AA format alkaline batteries. It is a pity that Canon doesn't include a quick charger with a set of NiMH batteries. Regarding energy use, the PowerShot A620 does an excellent job. There is no doubt that this is largely thanks to the integration of the highly recommended DIGIC II processor. In any case, it gives you many more hours and you can reckon on 300 -350 shots using the LCD screen and flash. Exchange the alkaline batteries for NiMH batteries (2500mAh) and you can easily take 500 photographs. The advantage of the AA format batteries is that it doesn't cost much when you have to get new ones. In addition to this you can buy them on practically every street corner.
