    Wow! It is so easy to take really good photos with this camera, the big screen allows you to compose the scene and there is very little delay between pressing the button and the picture being taken - a problem I have noticed on other cameras, making it difficult to take picture of animals and kids. I'm impressed!

    Verified Purchase
    I bought this camera after reading the reviews on this site and other photography sites.
    After I got over the plastic toy-like feel of the outside I was very impressed by the camera.

    Firstly, the normal pictures on auto mode are easy to take, and look very good.
    The manual mode is easy to alter all the settings they give you. Things like ISO, white balance, and where to focus, although these all have auto modes if you just want a partially manual mode.

    Then there's the different "scenes" i think they are called, like portrait, indoor, kids and pets.
    They have some settings pre-set for shooting the type of picture the mode is designed for.
    The special modes actually have other things. I think sunset makes it look more red, I haven't tried fireworks yet.

    Normally you don't get to alter the shutter speed, it is automatic, but in long shutter speed mode, you can set it between 1second and 15 seconds. I was very impressed at the photo taken by candlelight (just 3 candles in the room and the other two far away) the whole room was well lit up, you could see better on the photo than by just looking, and my eyes had already adjusted to the dark. on 15s shutter, it needs a tripod or resting on something otherwise you get a very shaky photo and of course your subject will leave lines and blurs if it moves anywhere.

    The other mode that is particularly special is super macro mode. Normally in all the other modes you can set the focal length between infinity, normal, and macro (I haven't tested these properly to find out where each best focal range is) but on super macro mode you can literally have the camera touching the subject.

    Very happy with the quality of outdoor photographs and simplicity of operation. Less convinced so far about indoor photographs but that may be a reflection of my failure to grasp how to operate the camera rather than the quality of its flash photography. The Canon programme for transfer of photographs to the PC is both very easy to operate with clear instructions and very versatile. I'm pleased with the camera and its accessories.

    I am not into overly technical photography so this review will disappoint those who want something more detailed.
    After years fo carrying heavy cameras and accessories which I rarely used my requirements were pretty simple - light and functional.

    My review is as follows:

    If you want a light camera that you can slip into a trouser pocket that will take acceptable shots in most common situations you could do worse than to try this one. It is simple to use and downloading to a laptop/PC, editing and printing are a piece of cake. The results so far have been excellent in all conditions. Bought for around £100 I am very satisfied.

    I have been delighted with the Canon Powershot A480, which I bought a month ago. I purchased this as a 'handbag camera' - a relatively cheap, small camera, which does indeed fit easily in my handbag. I was pleased to be able to buy such a high resolution camera for this purpose.

    I've taken it on a recent holiday, and the pictures are fantastic. The different mode functions are easy to use - I've been particularly impressed with the supermacro function, which I've used for taking pics of flowers; and the aquarium mode, which I've used for taking pics of museum exhibits which are behind glass.

    My only drawback is that I'm currently struggling to register to use Canon's online photo-sharing service 'Image Gateway'; but the helpful tech guys are sorting that out for me too.

    This was bought for my son as a replacement for another Canon camera and is being sent straight back. Neither of them would accept my rechargeable NiMH batteries. I have four different makes and capacities and they either wouldn't power up at all or immediately displayed the 'low battery' message. It's a shame as the picture quality is up to Canon's usual standard and they are very straightforward to use. I must add that I have had a Canon A620 for a number of years and not only does it accept the very same batteries, but I can get around 300 shots on one charge.
    Using alkalines would work out expensive as we have found that after 30-40 shots the camera was advising that we change the batteries.
    I have had to spend considerably more on a camera which has a dedicated rechargeable pack.

    Functional little camera with a good sized viewing screen which shows icons to enable you to take many good composed pictures. Easy to use when the booklet is read. Good value for money. But like all digital cameras it 'eats' batteries so have a good supply if going on holiday.Overall I was very pleased with my purchase for the money.
