Product Description

With its streamlined silhouette and smoothly curved edges, the Canon PowerShot A480 has the compact sophistication and relaxed simplicity that make it a natural for beginners and everyone else who craves style and convenience. The 10.0-megapixel resolution and 3.3x optical zoom make it easy to capture the action in dazzling color and brilliant detail. The DIGIC III Image Processor keeps it all looking sharp. While a bright, bold 2.5-inch LCD makes shooting and playback a genuine pleasure.

Date Reviewed: June 30, 2010

Strengths:    Zoom, Picture quality, didnt break when droped

Weaknesses:    lense, size, only take AA batteries

Bottom Line:   
This camera was one of the worst cameras I have ever used. I bought it last summer and on the end of my one month trip I started to have a problem with the lense. I returned the camera for a new one ( the same modle) and the lense still didnt work.
