Canon A410 - DIGIC II processor|
The size of the Canon PowerShot A410 is far from compact. The emphasis thus lies more on the camera's advantageous price/quality ratio. The drive behind the camera is without a doubt the DIGIC II processor. The DIGIC II processor integrates all image processing algorithms onto a single chip to deliver fast write times, minimal shutter lag, optimal image definition and consistently precise and natural colour reproduction. Camera start up and response times for image review are significantly improved.
Canon A410 digital camera - Camera modes
The Powershot A410 has 14 shooting modes to select from, including 8 pre-set Special Scene modes to help achieve great results in tricky lighting conditions. These modes include Portrait, Night Snapshot, Kids and Pets, Indoor, Foliage, Beach, Snow and Fireworks. To assist photographers with composition, a gridline display can be selected, which helps with framing shots and keeping horizons level. The addition of My Colors allows the operator to use enhanced, in-camera digital effects, such as Color Swap, while shooting. Previously, this level of image enhancement was only possible after downloading to a PC, and using specialised software.
Canon A410 camera - 3,2 Megapixels
The resolution of 3.2 Megapixels does however look somewhat bleak when compared to its rivals. Many manufacturers simply leave the 5 Megapixels and lower resolutions to the B-brands or the mobile cameraphones market. Nevertheless, Canon still sees considerable market possibilities for a camera such as the Canon Powershot A410, perhaps not without reason. The resolution does suffice to print a good quality postcard size and the 3.2x optical zoom enables you to capture a considerable array of subjects, from landscape to portrait.
