It has a good resolution but it would be better if it had more zoom.

Focusing problems...and manual focus is of little use.

It's a delight to use, small enough to fit in a pocket but not too small to be fiddly. It has lots of scope for manual controls if you feel you need them. I was so impressed that I bought a Canon S2 IS - which is not at all as endearing as the A510.

My camera has a excellent zoom for its size and fits easily in my hand. The flash is a little slow but i'm happy with this camera.
