The Canon PowerShot A480 Digital Camera (Black) is a sleek and compact camera that is simple to use and well suited to the amateur photographer. With a resolution of 10.0 megapixels and a 3.3x Optical zoom, the A480 provides the performance and features that are perfect for photographing family events, keeping up with children at play, or recording scenes and events during a vacation or business trip. The camera has everything you need to make shooting fast, easy and fun including a large 2.5-inch LCD and a full range of performance features including enhanced Face Detection & Motion Detection technology, and a DIGIC III Image Processor to keep every image looking its best. The PowerShot A480 also features high quality construction, and stylish, pocket-size designs, making it a perfect travel companion.

10.0 Megapixel Resolution

With 10.0 megapixels of resolution, you'll be able to capture superb detail and color resulting in beautiful prints with excellent sharpness and clarity at print sizes of over 20x30"
3.3x Optical Zoom Lens

The 3.3x Optical Zoom lens is made to canon's demanding specifications, and is capable of shooting close-ups, group shots or scenery. The addition of the 4x digital zoom also provides the ability to really single out details from a distance

2.5" LCD Display

The 2.5-inch high-resolution LCD screen is crisp, clear, and bright so it is easy to frame your shots under even bright light conditions. It also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light.
DIGIC III Image Processor with iSAPS Technology

Canon's DIGIC III Image Processor improves processing speed and image quality, and assures that every image is colorfully vibrant while enabling Canon's Face Detection Technology and Red-eye Correction to give you better, more true-to-life people shots. iSAPS is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the DIGICI II Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

Face Detection Technology

The PowerShot A480 features Face Detection Technology, which finds up to 9 faces in the frame and sets the most suitable focus point. In addition, Face Detection AE adjusts exposure and flash settings to ensure proper illumination of both the faces and the overall scene, eliminating the common problem of darkened or overexposed faces, and Face Detection WB means the camera concentrates upon faces when calculating white balance for the best possible skin tones.

High Sensitivity

The PowerShot A480 features high ISO Sensitivity of up to ISO 1600 to reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpens subjects in low-light situations, providing you with greater shooting flexibility.

Motion Detection Technology

The advanced Motion Detection Technology works in the background to instantly evaluate how fast your subject is moving. Then it automatically selects and sets the optimal exposure and ISO settings to keep everything looking sharp and clear.

15 Shooting Modes

Choose from Auto, Program, Movie, or Special Scene where you can select from settings such as Night, Snow, Indoor, Beach and more to get the best possible image.

Powered By AA-size Batteries

The camera uses common AA-size batteries that can be purchased at any store so you don't need to worry about running out of batteries or recharging batteries - simply get new ones locally. You can also use economical NiMH Rechargeable AA batteries.

Easy, Flexible Direct Printing Options

The Camera supports direct printing using the Canon Direct Print system or the PictBridge system, so you can print without a computer on many different brands and models of printers. The Direct Print feature also allows for image preview and editing (including cropping) on the camera before you begin printing, so your printed pictures are exactly what you need. Also, the Print/Share button is an easy way to transfer images directly to a computer when the camera is connected via the USB cable.
