Canon Powershot A620 for sale - ideal AP camera
Hi all

I've been holding onto my A620 since I bought my G9 in 2008, but I've never really used it again in anger. As it's widely considered one of the best AP cameras for its price, I thought I should put it up for sale here first.

I'm selling the camera on its own for £50, but I'm also looking to sell the Canon wide-angle converter for £50 (approx £150 new) including a metal adaptor ring. This reduces the focal length of the camera by 0.7x (at the camera's widest setting, that takes it from 35mm to 24.5mm).

Lastly I am also looking to sell my homemade panorama head as detailed here:

for £25. The complete A620, wide-angle converter and the panorama head:

was used to take the majority of the panoramas on my website:

The camera is 'used' but is in perfect working order. I used it for a good year or so on my first aerial photography helicopter, and aside from my DSLR, it remains the most hassle-free camera I've used for aerial photography due to its full manual controls, analog video out (easy to connect to an analog video link), AA batteries for power (or external power in jack), and lack of optical image stabilisation. Being a Canon, you can also load CHDK onto the camera to enable RAW mode, and USB triggering. When I used the camera I just positioned a servo over the shutter button.

Sample below:

The wide-angle converter is also in perfect working condition with no scratches on either the front or rear elements.

Many thanks for looking, please PM me if you're interested. I'm happy to ship worldwide – postage is not included in the prices above.

Total asking price is £125, shipping not included.

Cheers

David
