7.1 Megapixel CCD sensor
The PowerShot A620's 7.1 Megapixel CCD sensor allows for superb quality photo prints with pin-sharp definition up to A3+. It provides more than enough detail for printing cropped images.

4x optical zoom
A bright 4x optical zoom produces high-contrast images. It combines with digital zoom for 16x magnification.

DIGIC II and iSAPS
DIGIC II is like a powerful brain inside your camera. It links all the camera functions and processes shooting information at high speed for excellent responsiveness and extended battery life. iSAPS is a built in assistant that uses scene information to optimise camera settings even before the shot is taken.

Vari-angle LCD
The 2.0" vari-angle LCD screen twists in all directions. It is great for self portraits and for framing shots with the camera held at creative angles. Selectable grid lines help with composition and levelling horizons.

Shooting modes
20 shooting modes provide for full manual control and creative flexibility. 8 special scene modes include Night Snapshot, Kids & Pets, Indoor, Foliage, Snow, Beach, Fireworks and Underwater. My Colors allows in-camera colour effects to be applied in real time.

Movies with sound
Shoot extended high quality movies with sound. Different formats include fast frame mode at 60 fps (QVGA), standard mode at 30 fps (VGA) and compact email mode (QQVGA).

Super Macro and flexible focusing
Focus as close as 1cm from your subject with Super Macro. Rely on 9-point AiAF to keep even off-centre subjects sharply in focus, or use FlexiZone AF/AE to manually select focus points.

Accessories
Optional accessories include a 40m depth waterproof case, 0.7x wide converter lens, 1.75x tele-converter lens and slave flash.

Direct printing
Connect to any PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible photo printer and push the Print/Share button for instant photolab quality prints. It can even print ID photos or Movie Prints when connected to a Canon SELPHY Compact Photo Printer.

The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
7.1 MP
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
CCD
Supported aspect ratios
The aspect ratio is the ratio of the width of an image to its height. The supported aspect ratios are the aspect ratios that can be shown by the device.

4x
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).

In an optical viewfinder, the photographer looks through a transparent window to frame and focus the image. The photographer is seeing the real image, through the window of the viewfinder. With a digital viewfinde, there is an LCD display built into a camera that gives a digital view of where the camera is pointing. It's used to compose and focus the image.

Canons A620 is the best entry into the Powershot series, and one of the most complete cameras weve seen. It combines incredible picture quality and full functionality into a great package that only has a few niggling flaws to let it down.

There is a lot to like about the Canon Powershot A620. It offers advanced controls at a very reasonable price. The images are sharp and colours are strong. All I would really like to see is a faster shutter response and reduced red eye.
