cameras are 'shooting' down in price, tesco had some good ones at similar prices. this was on offer back end of last year at argos and jessops
#2
What if you are taking a picture of a football team?

Would 2 of the faces not be in focus?
#3
You gotta include the manager as well that makes 3 lol

After reading bitterwallet, I was interested to see this line near the bottom of the page;

* Please note item 5591349 has previously been on sale at £58.71.

So not 'half price' at all!!!

But having said that I have had a powershot now for 4 years and its never let me down,giving very good results in varying conditions. When I finally have to buy a replacement, I will be going for another powershot, and £50 sounds very good to me for what I consider to be a good camera.

As I keep mentioning the CHDK addon firmware for Canon PowerShots I should probably point out that it's currently not ported to the PowerShot A470, although it is being worked on. As such this isn't a good choice for anyone wanting to experiment with CHDK, at least at this time.

Good price for a Canon - I think these models are a bit clunky but if you don't mind that, the specs look good.
#7
Expect this to be cheap everywhere as the A480 has just been announced.

I bought 3 of these when they were £50 at Argos last time (Approx Nov). 2 as pressies and 1 for myself. Not the most attractive camera but very good results from it

It detects up to 9 faces. I guess it then focus at some average point and tries to set the f stop to get everyone in focus. Clever little b*****d.
