5.0 out of 5 stars Great little camera Feb. 24 2012
By ormsky
Color Name:Silver
This camera replaces my Canon A40 bought used for $40. and lasted 5 years nicely. Don't really understand what went wrong with this A40 but guess obsolete; was recycled at nearby depot! This A800 for $69. has got so much built in and has worked wonderfully since Jan. 1. Very compact, good battery life, bright screen, great Auto, zoom and many other features I have not begun to fully master. No more viewfinder but I guess they are gone forever with these cameras. Will recommend this quality at this price easily.

4.0 out of 5 stars Canon A800 Jan. 10 2012
Color Name:Red
Very good camera, light, good quality finish, quick shipment. Good price and very good brand.
It's a budget compact with a 10 Megapixel sensor, 3.3x optical zoom lens and a SMALL(2.5 inch) LCD screen
For my opinion, best value for money deal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Canon Powershot A800 - cheap, heavy, slow Dec 30 2011
By Yury
Color Name:Silver
I was looking for a cheap camera for hiking (not to be sorry in case it's lost or damaged).
Image quality is OK, however Canon A800 is noticeably heavier and bulkier than Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS etc.
Also it's slower when focusing and saving pictures.

Pros: price and AA batteries.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Aug. 27 2013
Color Name:Red|Verified Purchase
Wasn't even worth the $30 I paid for it.

Slow flash, slow zoom, slow everything. Do yourself a favour and spend a little more on a better camera.

It is small, light, easy to point and shoot and fits in your purse. The foto's are sharp and colors lifelike . The price was very good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great when it worked Jan. 26 2013
Color Name:Red|Verified Purchase
Great little camera when it worked, but mine stopped working after a few months, with the power not getting from the battery to the camera. To be fair, there's always a chance that it's something I did, but I couldn't tell you what.
