Capturing stunning photographs is as simple as point and shoot with the new PowerShot A800

Canon today announces the launch of the PowerShot A800, an affordable and easy to use compact digital camera that makes capturing the perfect picture as simple as point and shoot.  With Smart Auto mode the PowerShot A800 enables everyone, from first time photographers to casual snappers, to capture and enjoy Canon quality stills in seconds.  

Stylish design, smart features  


Available in a red, silver, black or blue finish, the PowerShot A800 combines a subtle, soft-edged design with a genuine Canon lens to deliver Canon image quality at an affordable price.  Compact enough to slip in a pocket, the PowerShot A800 offers 10.0 Megapixels, a 3.3x optical zoom and a bright 6.2 cm (2.5”) LCD display to make capturing and sharing images quick, easy and fun.

Fantastic photographs – wherever you are  

The PowerShot A800 features Smart Auto mode which automatically detects up to 19 different scenes and applies the best picture settings for the conditions, so whether you’re taking photos of people, landscapes, sunsets or close subjects you can rely on Canon know-how to take the best picture. When shooting indoors or capturing moving subjects, the Blur Reduction mode Blur Reduction Mode with resolution fixed at 1600 x 1200 helps to put an end to blurry images. If you’re feeling more creative you can choose Super Vivid or Poster Effect for more colourful and artistic results.
The PowerShot A800 has the added benefit of being powered by two AA batteries, making them easy to replace if you’re ever out of power on the go.
