I am looking to start taking microstock photographs but have a 2006 Canon PowerShot A620 camera. I don't want to start taking pictures until I know they will be of acceptable quality to the various agencies. I am concerned about noise and artifacts. I have Photoshop Elements 12 if needed. Is this camera capable of taking pictures that will be accepted?

If I were you I'd buy an old DSLR on Ebay for cheap

Canon has the new 50mp now just perfect for microstock shots  :)

Rather than ebay it might be better to look at BHphotovideo's used department. They've got refurbished Canon DSLRs there for less than $400. At least you'll know the camera works properly

Frankly, I doubt that you can get too many useful images shot with that camera. Actually I'd say rather use your smart phone and upload to mobile collections...

But more worrying is your statement "I don't want to start taking pictures until I know..." - if you don't start taking pictures, you will never find out.
