Great tool for instant shots and macro

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 I really like the macro of this cam.

Auto setup works well in most outdoor situations when you just want to capture the moment.

Overall : Good choice as a pocket camera if instead of impressive photographs you just don't want to miss a thing, yet you'd care for something better than some "smiling teeth in the middle of the fog "

PS: This camera is not for the high-zoom fanatics. Has a decent magnification for fine adjustments in framing.
