Canon PowerShot A520 Review

Announced just before PMA in February 2005, the PowerShot A520 is the replacement for the PowerShot A85, and continues the line of best-selling budget models that goes right back to early 2001 with the A10 and A20. The changes are evolutionary rather than revolutionary; a reduction in size and weight (it's 13% smaller and 20% lighter), the inclusion of a new four times optical zoom lens (the A85 had a three times), zoom-linked flash, a shift from CompactFlash to SD card for storage and a drop to two AA batteries from four.

  • 4.0 megapixel CCD
  • 4x (35-140mm equiv.) zoom lens
  • Manual, semi automatic and fully automatic exposure
  • 20 exposure modes
  • New 'hold' function
  • Zoom flash
  • 9-point AiAF focus
  • Optional underwater housing, external flashgun and add-on lenses
  • AA battery power
