The A610 has a lot of technology behind it, but how do the results match up? A 6MP sensor and 3x optical zoom are fairly standard for this entry-level class of compacts and its limited ISO range of 100-400 results in the flash beng used more often in low-light conditions. That said, the flash settings offer a slow-sync mode, which will improve the balance between the available light and the flash in night time photography. There are 14 scene modes including a manual option, which affords you some control. Dual card slots allow you to use an xD or SD memory card, should you have a preference. The results do show noticeably high noise levels and on high-contrast subjects there is purple fringing, which reduces the overall image quality.

Verdict

When buying one of the cameras you need to bear in mind that they are the manufacturers’ entry-level models and they will lack certain features available on cameras with a higher price. Having said that, it offers a good range of options for the price.
