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.
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.
Canon makes very good cameras and they are well worth the money you pay out for them . If you are into collecting cameras and doing photography its good to have a camera like this one around to use on the fly .
