Canon PowerShot A495
Released February, 2010
The Pros:Extreme close-ups (macro) look very good. Easy to use right out of the box, no need for a manual. Durable enough to handle moderate amount of bumps and scrapes.
The Cons:Takes a long time to save pictures after they're taken. A little too bulky to fit into a shirt pocket.

More sophisticated face detection capabilities, a face timer feature and additional color options separate the A495 from the A490. This camera’s automated nature enables blur-free images when used by the average user. Those who don’t want to constantly adjust settings will likely make use of the Smart Auto with Scene Detection technology, which will apply the best settings automatically based on 13 different scene presets. In terms of memory card compatibility, both SDHC and SDXC are compatible. Photographs can be reviewed on the 2.5-inch LCD screen. The Canon PowerShot A495 will be released in February, 2010.
