Great Camera at a Great Price

By

Under $100, easy to use, wide angle, low light, bright LCD, HD video, fits in pocket, and uses AA batteries. With 16MP and 5x zoom this is a great all around camera. Sharp clear pictures, and great resolution. I did notice it set off the flash too often and was slow to recycle. There is an off button which helps, but you have to remember to turn it back on. The A810 is identical, but without a viewfinder. Use Nihm batteries for best results, but Alkaline will work in a pinch. Lighter than other Canons, but feels and looks plastic.

This one HAS a VIEWFINDER!

By

This is a great purse camera to have with you all the time. It is one of the last small inexpensive cameras to have a view finder which is absolutely necessary if you want to compose shots well outside on a sunny day. The only downside is the battery life was horrible until I switched to Lithium rechargables. Now much better.

Great little camera

By

This is a great little camera. The menu hierarchy is intuitive, very easy to use. Don't need to carry the manual around with you. The choice of buttons on the back is perfect. Want to shoot a movie? Just push the red button. Also easy on batteries. I use Eneloop technology batteries and they last for a very long time before they need recharging.

Questions about this item:

Sandra L  I lost my operating manual on my Cannon Power Shot A3100 IS, can I have some simple directions?
DANIEL H  I have an A3300 IS. Never had time to read manual. (typical Male) Play with the controls, Play with the menu, each setting gives another set of icons. My 3300 gives a brief description of what each does. WB select the light most prevalent snap a pix and if it looks OK push menu to lock in the selection. Flash always on always off or when the camera thinks it needs to fire. Timer, set off or of if on, set time as to how fast you can run back to the group to get in the picture. Special settings fish eye, near, far, macro set for what you will be doing and don't forget to go back to your favorite default. Taking close up pix of flowers with a fish eye may be artsy if that is what you want but doesn't always look like a flower. All in all, the camera is pretty intuitive. If you just want to do Face Book pix leave it on auto for stills and on the camera icon for movies. If you want a lot of email’able pictures use a lower pixel setting. Twenty 16 Mp files will clog up many a server and takes a long time to upload. A good fundamental “Understanding photography”, book to reference terms would be something to invest in if you are not that familiar with the technical aspects of photography. My main gun is a 7D but this little guy, in the right setting, can really give it a run for it's money and fits in the pocket a lot better!
