The 4x optical zoom lens lets you get close to the action without sacrificing quality. It combines with digital zoom for an impressive 16x magnification.

Cutting edge technology
Canon's advanced DIGIC II processor delivers fast, responsive camera performance and superior image processing. iSAPS technology analyses each scene to optimise key camera settings even before a shot is taken.

Shooting modes and My Colors
Choose from 12 shooting modes to get that perfect shot. Eight easy-to-use Special Scene modes help with great results in tricky lighting conditions, including Portrait, Night Snapshot and Kids & Pets. My Colors allows special in-camera colour effects to be applied in real time to images and movies.

Make VGA quality movie clips with full audio. View them on the camera's LCD screen, or connect to a TV or PC for full screen playback.

Auto focus and 1cm Super Macro mode
5-point AiAF ensures that even off-centre subjects remain sharp and in focus. With Super Macro mode, you can focus as close as 1cm from your subject - perfect for capturing the fine detail of tiny objects.

2.0" LCD screen
A 2.0" LCD brings pleasure to framing and reviewing your creations. The selectable Grid Line Display helps with composition, while Night Display aids screen visibility after dark.

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...
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...
Canon PowerShot A460 This bargain-priced camera offers a solid body, a 4X zoom, and exposure compensation; but some images looked noisy. Recommend this story? Yes No Please Wait... Canons PowerShot A460 has a sophisticated and durable look to it, yet...

Bad Lacks separate zoom control...

With a 4x optical zoom with a great macro facility and at a decent price, the Canon Powershot A460 is the perfect compact for the happy snapper. Canon Powershot A460 Specification Price: £79 Resolution: 5Mp Zoom: 4x optical, 4x digital Processor: DIGI...
Canons new PowerShot A460 is really an updated version of last years A430, which I found to be a very good cheap camera. This years model doesnt stray too far from the original and should please the average picture-taker. More discerning shooters...
Good Very good picture quality. Decent performance. No shutter lag.
Bad Terrible recycle time. Poor video quality.
Bottom line As I found with last years cheapest PowerShot, the inexpensive A460 point-and-shoot is a very nice, portable, compact digital camera that takes very good pictures...
"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...
Good Great value, easy to use, image quality is good for price range, better than average zoom lens...
Bad Beginner-only feature list, LCD should be sharper, some noise problems in low-light images, could use a little more resolution...

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...
Good Software is easy to use Manual control options Excellent white balance accuracy (auto and presets) Well-designed locking mechanism on battery/memory card cover In-camera digital effects via the My Colors mode Sturdy and well-built...
Bad Low resolution and slowly refreshing LCD monitor Poor movie mode Undersized and inaccurate viewfinder Zoom is adjusted via the up and down arrows of the four-way control Overall size limits portability for the on-the-go snapshot photographer Plastic so...
Bottom line Eschewing the current trend of downsizing bulky point-and-shoot cameras, the sizeable Canon PowerShot A460 has some attractive features for both novice and more advanced snapshoters. The camera comes with a 1/3.0-inch 5 MP CCD, a 4x optical zoom lens...
Canon A460Overview Review Date: 5/28/07 The Canon PowerShot A460 digital camera has a resolution of five megapixels and a 2.0 inch 86,000 pixel LCD display -- up from last years four megapixel A430 and its 1.8 inch LCD. The Canon A460 sports a Canon-b...

Bad Slow flash recycle Blows some highlights in bright sunlight Some chromatic aberration in the corners, especially at wide angle VGA movie mode is limited to 10 frames per second Unusual zoom control Bad pixels revealed by high contrast line patterns Sti...
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...
