    5.0 Megapixel CCD sensor
    A 5.0 Megapixel CCD sensor delivers photo quality prints up to A3 size, with plenty of scope for image cropping.

    4x optical zoom
    A bright 4x optical zoom gives you the flexibility to frame shots up closer or at a distance without sacrificing quality. 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 focusingFocus 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.

    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. The PowerShot A610 can even print ID photos or Movie prints when connected to a Canon SELPHY Compact Photo Printer.

    USB 2.0 Hi-SpeedUSB 2.0 Hi-Speed connects the PowerShot A610 to computers for fast uploads of stills and movies.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'm pondering whether to go a few more quid for the Canon IXUS 60. £189 at Amazon, is it much of an improvemnt on the A610?

    I've only just read an article on the Canon Ixus 60 in PCPro, it actually won the top award in their reviews. It's up to you...

    rod147 its a shame you didnt start looking a few days ago as there was a code posted for £80 off the canon ixus 60 at jessops making it £153, though it looks like they will not be re-stocking! Though I have just got this camera and its awesome!
