Canon PowerShot A530

This is one of those other items that I've had lying around; it wasn't purchased for the investigations.  This is a solid digital camera, takes pretty good pictures, but I'm limited to the 4x zoom.  Eventually I'll upgrade to something with a bit more zoom, but until then, I'll be happy with what I have (please look at our post Lightning Strike to see the picture quality.

One may argue that there is no need for a digital camera when we have a digital camcorder (or vice versa), but I feel that this gives us more options.  And no, the camera does not open... this is a shot of both the front and back.

This camera was free, from a friend who upgraded to something bigger.  That right there sways my opinion...  cheap is good, free is better!  With all seriousness, this camera is a good solid camera, and should prove quite useful.
