I have won a Canon A800 on an auction site for 60 cents and really wasn't something planned to buy but once I started to play around with it a bit I kinda liked it. I RATE THIS CAMERA WITH 4 STARS AS THE OVERALL QUALITY AND FUNCTIONS WORTH THE MARKET PRICE. PROS: Indoors is lazy. Don't expect to get a good snapshot of your dog or guinea pig. Flesh takes a "lifetime" even with high amp batteries. Video is not impressive but I've seen worst. CONS: Fairly good outside shots, instant capture and ...

The Canon Powershot A800 is of excellent quality and in its operation as the optimal imaging quality with great details! Optimal presentation of contrast in the images! Great ease of operation and rich customization! You can buy rechargeable batteries anywhere. The only thing that makes me a little disappointed is the slow flash recharge, for that would qualify as a Very Good Product, but would be great if this item was negative! Still I would recommend to many friends and relatives, because ...

The operation is very simple and takes pictures very crisp and clear with lots of contrast. I take all the pictures to the computer and do not need to change contrast, brightness or sharpness. Print all with great quality! Problems: Screen has poor resolution. Long time to load the flash

You can't fault this camera for not having a big feature set. After all, it is Canon's lowest priced model. What it does do well is make nice images. Images are very sharp even at 100% view and noise is not intrusive from ISO 100 to 400. I have found that turning down the sharpness setting lowers the effect of noise without sacrificing sharpness much as it is so sharp to begin with. Canon claims to have significantly improved battery life over last year's model (A495). My experience is that ...
