The faithful old Canon PowerShot A520 served me well for a lot of years and took hundreds of pictures. It still works, evidence pictures below, but it is getting a bit stubborn about reviewing shots and often one has to turn it off completely and restart in order to review. So I have been thinking for seven or eight months about new equipment.
And as I was spending money in an electronics shop the other day, this "on sale" item caught my eye. It is a bit smaller, has a bit larger viewing area, and has seriously higher resolution. I hope I am going to like it.
The upper two pictures were taken with the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS, and its "portraits" were snapped with the old camera. Can you see any difference? The objects were posed identically and the A520 defaulted to flash. The A4000 IS used available light.
