"Excellent camera for work and home use."5.0 starson by bayoujeeper
Pros: Excellent battery life, awesome pictures, generous zoom capabilities, reliable!
Cons: None to mention
Summary: As a Federal Safety Inspector, I use a government owned Canon Powershot A520 offshore. For the past year, I have been so impressed with its durability and capabilities that I purchased the A540 for my personal use. These cameras are so easy to use my nine year old daughter even takes perfect pictures. The video quality is suprisingly great, as well. I purchased a 2 GB memory chip so I can take 650 or so pictures and several minutes of video between downloads to my desktop. I owned a Kodak previous to this camera and it was unreliable (but to be fair it may have just been a lemon). Anyway, I recommend this camera and the family of Canon Powershot models to anyone who wishes to take a good quality picture everytime. As for the 10 perfect rating, my job requires a tough, reliable, and capable camera to capture evidence from the cockpit of helicopters to the drilling platform of a rig and this camera has stood the test of time.
