New Scene Modes Help You Get Creative the Easy Way.
Scene Modes such as Super Vivid, Poster Effect and Blur Reduction really gives the shooter more creative freedom to capture images their way!

PowerShot A800 digital camera is equipped with plenty of easy ways give your shots high quality and fun creative touches.

Super Vivid mode is just what the name implies. When you shoot in this mode, colors are automatically heightened and saturated for an intensity that’s truly eye-popping. You’ll want to try it out in a wide range of applications – nature, city life, interiors and more – to get a feel for the effects you can create.

Poster Effect turns any conventional shot into an exciting, artistic “poster.” By making the transitions between colors more abrupt, the mode creates the effect of a hand-painted poster. Portraits are a natural for this mode, but you’ll find that the effect can give any shot a visually arresting new dimension.

Blur Reduction automatically reduces camera shake, so your shots are clear and steady. The system detects surrounding brightness and controls shutter speed – all while you’re concentrating on getting the shot you want. Without any extra effort on your part, your shots are crisp and detailed.

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.

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.

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.

Bought this on sale for my young son. The sale price made it not much more that the cheapo "kids" cameras I had bought previously. This is a big step up from a kids toy. The flash sometimes takes a couple of seconds to charge. The picture quality is just worth 4/5 stars. It's pretty durable too as it gets tossed around quite a lot.

I purchased this camera for my Mom. This is her first digital camera and she loves it! Nothing fancy, but she is happy and it is very easy to use.

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.

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.
