The Canon PowerShot A610 digital camera is very useful and durable. It has many features, such as a programmable setting, a manual setting, and settings to enhance portrait, landscape, and night photography. I use it primarily for my eBay business.
This is a 5 megapixel camera with a live display which can be flipped and turned so that you can view it both from the front and the back of the camera. This Canon PowerShot camera produces vibrant pictures at high resolution. The 4x optical zoom function is not very powerful. You're not going to do a lot of wildlife photography with this camera, and it isn't the sort of camera you can attach a lens to. It is a lot of fun, though; it makes AVI movies, and has a macro mode which you can use to photograph things very close up. I actually like my camera better than the PowerShot which my mother bought which has more power and more features. Her camera lacks the live LCD display and is more difficult to use. I highly recommend the Canon PowerShot series of cameras; however be sure to look at the camera before you buy it to make sure it has the features you want and need.
