Canon Powershot A410 3.2MP Digital Camera

Updated on July 29, 2013

Canon PowerShot A410 Digital Camera

NOTE: If you are looking to purchase a digital camera, especially for the first time, I would like to recommend the A410 Canon PowerShot.

I love my camera. I have had it a couple of years now. I purchased it originally because of the Super Macro feature so that I could take pictures for items I listed on eBay. It has well served its purpose. I takes excellent photos outside as well as in. The picture below, African Violet, is a closeup of a Violet in my office at work. The lighting in the office is fluorescent.

My experience with a camera, prior to my A410, was "O". I had used an old Brownie, purchased the Panorama self-develop type cameras and that is about that. But, when I got my digital.....WOW! Love at first sight!

The A410 is so easy to use. It is not often I have taken a shot that I don't keep (unless I don't have my glasses on and did not read the setting right).

I hope you enjoy all the photos I have taken with my camera.

If you are selling on-line and need close ups, Canon Power A410 is the way to go. It has an excellent macro setting for really close clear shots that you need for showing off jewelry, etc. I took this brooch with my Canon Power A410.

      I love taking pictures too. Yours are wonderful. The marina is stunning! I made a Pictolens a kind of game with my lens pictures because taking pictures is so much fun.
