Are you looking for a camera which will be appealing to the entire family, then you should consider taking a closer look at the Canon PowerShot A530. As CNET puts it, this camera will be appealing to just about anyone that is looking for a very inexpensive camera which is actually worth the value. They also claim that this camera produces pretty good quality photos in just about each and every situation, even outdoors, which is one of the main reasons that it is so appealing. It is the perfect camera for any family picnic. Another thing that CNET likes about this camera is the color quality which it has to offer. Unfortunately, one of the main downfalls of this camera is the fact that it does take quite a long time between pictures.

CNET agrees that the Canon PowerShot A530 is an ideal digital camera for anyone who is on a budget and is looking for an affordable camera. They believe that it produces good pictures in environments that are well lit. They also feel that it has some really good features which makes it a good camera for people who are on a budget. However, they do think that there are better cameras out there which can provide you with better performance. Overall, it is safe to say that if you are looking for a great outdoorsy camera, a camera which will help you save a lot of money, or if you are just looking for a camera for beginners, then chances are that the Canon PowerShot A530 is the perfect choice for you. Those who are more interested in a camera which will give them the ability to not be able to miss a shot with high-speed performance, should look elsewhere for a digital camera, as the Canon PowerShot A530 is not an ideal choice for you.
