stuuf: #canon_powershot_a520 My favorite feature of this camera is the manual control modes that aren't available on most other brands of cameras below the SLR price range. I've been able to take a lot of pictures that look better than what the automatic metering gives by setting some options manually.

It doesn't perform very well in low-light situations however. The flash is powerful enough when you can use it, but the high-sensitivity modes are too noisy to get good shots in dark places. I actually shoot at ISO 50 most of the time to keep the noise down. Oct 2, 08
