Hi Shiva, you're right, $700 is a ridiculous price for this camera. For some reason there are a number of sellers on amazon.com selling old used cameras at high prices, we'll look into it and see if there is some way we can ignore this prices.

Hi,

I have been a user of A620 from the year 2006. It was 1st digital camera, I started to use as a just point and shoot rather should say everything in auto mode. Recently (last1-2yrs) have used it manual functions and kinda happy with the performance.

I came across the price of A620 and it says 700$, I fail to understand why would something as old as A620 cost so much ? My buy price was 300$.
your answer will help me understand the market.

Thanks
