Canon PowerShot A800


$89.00 Released January, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Significantly cheaper than the model that it replaces at launch (A495). Powered by AA batteries - easy to charge, keep spares, or to find and replace while on-the-go. Large easy to use buttons.

The Cons:Boxy, plastic construction. Virtually identical to the model it replaces (A495). Powered by AA batteries rather than a more capacious rechargeable lithium ion battery pack.

The Canon PowerShot A800 is a simple point-and-shoot digital camera. This is a basic camera similar to the Canon PowerShot A1200, but with a smaller sensor, less optical zoom, and no creative filters. Otherwise they are the same, with AA battery power, selectable Scene Modes for various lighting situations, and a Smart AUTO system that automatically selects the best camera settings for the situation.
