Test Pictures from my new Canon A-50. Overall I am very pleased with the results. Although this camera will not replace my Canon Elan 35mm, it will be used a lot. Judge for yourself by looking at the images on the left. The images were run through Photoshop 4 with various effects added to enhance the images for this test. (The vignette with the added drop shadow may be going too far, but this is just a test.)

Good Points:

  • The color and clarity of the images are very good.
  • The camera is easy to use with a short learning curve.
  • Print quality on a 3" x 4" print is fantastic.
  • Images for the web are as good as I can get scanning photos.
  • Total cost of system (camera, battery pack, card reader) is less than the new 2.1M pixel cameras and for 3" x 4" prints the quality is comparable. (The Canon A-50 has 1.3M pixels.)

Bad Points:

  • You must buy the optional battery pack (~$100.00)
  • Camera is so small you should use a tripod with the selftimer in medium light conditions. Low light conditions a tripod is a must.
  • The fine details are lost as compared to a 35mm photo.

The Pictures from the Christ Church down were taken at Historic Rugby Tennessee, December 4-5, 1999. Historic Rugby is one of Tennessee's hidden treasures. A Victorian Village left over from the 1880's nestled on the Cumberland Plateau and bordering the Big South Fork Park. Check out their Website for more information:
