Canon PowerShot A630 8 to 10 Megapixel
PowerShot A630 not only boasts show-stopping 8.0 megapixel resolution, but is packed with a full range of high-performance features previously found only on Canon's higher-end cameras. The result is an affordable camera that produces truly superior photography. The high resolution is complemented by a 4x optical zoom that brings the world up close, and you'll see it all clearly on the big, bright 2.5-inch Vari-Angle LCD monitor. The 21 shooting modes make photography easy, fun and creative, and are joined by great functionality like expanded ISO settings that let you shoot in low light without blur.

Strengths: Looks pretty
Weaknesses: The whole camera. Would not recommend
I too bought this camera. Within months it started acting up and going blank during trying to take pictures. It works one minute and goes blank. This is one of the worst cameras I ever owned.

Weaknesses: Many including the warranty repair services!
I purchase the Canon Power Shot A630 over the internet. I liked the features specially with the ability to flip the LCD fro protection from scratches. I liked that it used regular batteriies and not the expensive kind. Problem is I was only able to take a few pictures before the camera broke. It stopped taking images and instead gave blank (black) images. I immediately shipped the camera to Canon for repair. They turned it around in ten days. One month later Iafter sitting in my closet I was again taking pictures why vacationing in the islands. While in the middle of taking pictures this camera again stopped capturing images and instead gave only blank images. Once I returned from my trip I again sent this camera back to Canon. This time they would not repair my camera unless I paid them $100.00 dollars. They calimed that there was a foreign substance on my camera that could possibly cause this failure. I know that when the camera was in my possession that is was well cared for and that nothing was ever spilled nor came into contact with my camera. I didn't pay for the service because I know in my heart this was either a design inherited flaw or I ended up with a lemon. Canon was more then happy to take the camera off my hands which I did not let them do. I will not buy from Canon again!
