  • Picking up the chunky A640 is like travelling back to a simpler era - it's unashamedly heavy, has an optical viewfinder and uses good old AA batteries. And while the PowerShot's charcoal grey casing might not be much to look at, it's made (mostly) from...

  • Produces crisp, sharp images, Excellent Macro mode
  • Quite bulky for a compact, Occasionally inaccurate AF
  • Remember the days when digital cameras looked like digital cameras, instead of slivers of sculpted metal or retro SLRs? Picking up the chunky A640 is like travelling back to a simpler era - its unashamedly heavy, has an optical viewfinder and uses goo...

  • Excellent image quality, Very lowdistortion lens with no chromatic aberration, Low noise from 80 to 200 ISO, 25inch pivoting LCD monitor, Fully useable ISO range, Fast to operate, Wellpriced
  • 25inch monitors resolution a bit low for its size, Optical viewfinder shows only part of the frame being captured, Redeye reduction flash mode requires accessing the menu
  • From the PowerShot A620 springs the Canon PowerShot A640 and A630, both of which retain the same body design and 4X optical zoom as the A620, but with the addition of a 2.5-inch LCD monitor and an increase in resolution: the A630 to 8 megapixels, and t...

  • Flip out LCD monitor with wide view Flash exposure compensation Only 10 MP compact cam with manual controls 4x optical zoom lens Manual controls Great movie mode
  • High noise levels Slow start-up and operation Inaccurate viewfinder Only 115k on LCD Barrel distortion Heavy and clumsy camera body Expensive $399 price
  • The PowerShot A640 has more pros than cons. It has a lot of resolution at 10 megapixels, but that won’t be necessary for most users of this camera. Point-and-shooters won’t need to create life-size prints since most will make small prints with...

  • 10Mp resolution 2.5” LCD Good controls Lots of colour modes 4x optical zoom 1cm macro mode
  • Only sRGB Not great range of exposure compensation Not a fast shooter Images noisy
  • For a budget range camera to have a selection of full-feature camera modes, a flip-out LCD and a 10Mp resolution is something of a surprise. The A640 is a willing, lightweight and convenient little camera that can taken anywhere and used without drawin...
