Re: Canon Powershot A480 Digital Camera

I wanted a small digital that would fit in my shirt pocket that used AA batteries and of course took good pictures.
The Canon A480 far exceed my expectation. Out of the box it was so intuitive to use that I hardly looked at the manual. I took tons of pictures and they all came out great.
however I noticed it once and that was it, and even then it was for just a couple of seconds.
If you want an easy camera that does alot (the movies were great on this little guy) then this is the ticket.

Re: Canon Powershot A480 Digital Camera

I am very happy with the picture quality produced by this camera. I've taken about 100 pictures so far and only a few have been less than perfect. I like to print 8 x 10's of my children who are 6 and 3 years old (this age group is not known for sitting still). I can easily get crystal clear quality in an 8 x 10 of almost any picture I've taken so far.
