Picture quality
Megapixel *
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
5 MP
Image sensor size *
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Still image resolution(s) *
List of image resolutions that supported by device.
640 x 480,1600 x 1200,1600 x 1200,2048 x 1536,2592 x 1456,2592 x 1944
Lens system
Optical zoom *
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom *
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
0.213 - 0.85" (5.4 - 21.6 mm)
Light exposure
ISO sensitivity *
A measure of a photographic film's sensitivity to light.

Viewfinder type
A viewfinder is the window in the camera through which a photographer views the picture. Used for choosing, composing, and often focusing the image. There are two types: optical and digital. In an optical viewfinder, the photographer looks through a transparent window to frame and focus the image. The photographer is seeing the real image, through the window of the viewfinder. With a digital viewfinde, there is an LCD display built into a camera that gives a digital view of where the camera is pointing. It's used to compose and focus the image.

Good Image quality, Easy to use, Focusing and macro mode, For an extra £40, it’s available as a bundle with the Selphy CP520 printer.
Bad Confusing four-way controller, Heavy on the power from AA cells, LCD prone to flaring in bright conditions, Limited sensitivity options, LCD blacks out during flash recharge.
Bottom line It’s true, there are a couple of weaknesses with this camera but they can be forgiven quickly for a camera at this level, given the good overall image quality, the performance and its sub £100 price. And, when you realise for another £40 you can buy...
If you are looking for a no-nonsense camera that’s easy to use, then Canon’s A460 may well be the camera for you. It’s a 5MP camera, which is comparatively low these days. Image quality, however, is just as good, confirming the assertio...

Bottom line This bargain-priced camera offers a solid body, a 4X zoom, and exposure compensation; but some images looked noisy.

"Simple" and "basic" are the key words used to describe Canons PowerShot A460 point-and-shoot digital camera, as it offers no significant manual-control features and is only going to appeal to novice photographers. Unfortunately, the PowerShot A460 is...

Decent snaps and a solid optical zoom help this digicam stand out from the budget crowd.
Bottom line The chunky, 5-MP PowerShot A460 wont fit in your pocket and feels heavy in your hand, but its 4X optical zoom and optical viewfinder help it stand out from the budget crowd. Canon also includes a manual setting for tweaking the white balance, ISO, and...
This is Canons least expensive digital camera, at least in the USA. It sells for about $140 in February 2007 and it works fine. It replaces the 2006 A430. An A460 is better than more expensive digital cameras were several years ago. If you think you...
The new PowerShot A460 digital camera features 5.0-megapixels of resolution with a 4x optical zoom lens and a 2.0-inch LCD screen, up from 4.0 megapixels and a 1.8-inch LCD screen on last year’s PowerShot A430. This new model also incorporates Canon...
The 5-megapixel Canon PowerShot A460 succeeds the A430 with a marginally larger LCD screen and CCD size. Its 2.0-inch LCD screen has a paltry 86,000 pixels, an in-camera flash, and a 4x optical zoom lens. It comes equipped with a full auto mode, a manu...

Bottom line The digital camera market is jam packed with dirt-cheap digicams, but there are only a few in this under-$150 range that I would recommend to just about anyone. The Canon PowerShot A460 is just such a camera. Its 5-megapixel sensor is more than enough...
