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.

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.
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.
This is one dynamite camera!! I've used it a bit now, and it has a lot of features that are just indispensable! Especially the auto-focus! Close up or far away, this camera takes great clear and in-focus shots!!
I'd recommend this to anyone!
Great pictures, great camera, great price and delivery was super fast. It was delivered next day and free shipping. I would recommend this camera to anyone wanting to upgrade from 35mm film to digital.

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. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Dave
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.Published on Feb. 20 2014 by Cathy Barnard
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.
