Gordon Laing of CameraLabs.com reviews the Canon PowerShot A640 compact digital camera. The PowerShot A640 has 10 megapixels of resolution and a 35mm – 140mm 4x optical zoom lens. The A640 is larger than most compact digital cameras, but the good thing about this is how easy the camera is to grip. It has full manual control including aperture and shutter priority.
The PowerShot A640 has a 2.5 inch flip out and tilt LCD screen. This is very useful if you want to take shots above everyone’s head or low to the ground. You can also use the cameras optical viewfinder if you want to conserve battery power or if it is bright outside.
Some of the cons of the PowerShot A640 include the fact that the LCD screen has a low resolution and the size of the camera may not be desireable if you want a compact digital camera you can put in your pocket. The Canon PowerShot A640 currently sells for approximately $350.00.
