Canon PowerShot A480

Digital Photography Interface
23 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot A480 is a 10 megapixel entry-level camera which I can recommend. There’s a 3.3X optical zoom lens, very good battery life, a 2.5 inch LCD with good visibility and point-and-shoot operation with a good amount of scene modes. The camera comes with a decent “starterâ€� memory card which is useful for beginners (but not huge or sufficient for everyone).
  • Pros: Good image quality till ISO 400; effective redeye removal and low distortion, Good LCD visibility in low and bright light, Decent sized “starterâ€� memory card, Above average battery life, Fast performance (except continuous shooting), Very good macro mode and decent VGA 30 FPS movie mode, Long shutter mode and custom white balance
  • Cons: No manual controls, No optical image stabilization, Slow continuous shooting mode, Low LCD resolution, Some visible color fringing

Machines that Go Bing!

  • Conclusion: Canon’s DIGIC III has already proved itself capable of delivering images of good quality with low noise levels and good colour reproduction.  It also drives the face-detection technology built into the camera and capable of detecting up to nine faces and adjust focus, exposure and flash settings accordingly to get those skin tones just right.

What Digital Camera
23 December 2009
  • Excerpt: For around £100 we don't expect cameras to provide miracles, and the Canon A480 makes no such claim. But for those looking at no-frills simplicity, there are many reasons why the model may just be...

Canon PowerShot A480 Review

Digital Camera Review
25 August 2009
  • Summary: When veteran photographers think of entry-level cameras, they often tend to dismiss such cameras because they are cheaply made and generally designed for amateurs. That's too bad, because inexpensive doesn't necessarily mean inadequate. The cameras many famous photographers carried during the first half of the twentieth century were actually pretty basic image making tools -especially when compared to today's digitals with auto exposure and auto focus.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Compact, Easy to use
  • Cons: Grainy LCD, Poor low light performance, No optical viewfinder

Canon PowerShot A480 Blue Digital Camera Review

13 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Yummy: The power shot is a cheaper instrument with relatively small size and with AA battery powered. It’s a better instrument to have with. Oops: It’s a bit chunky with plastic design that makes the tool dull and also if seen performance wise, it is having a leisurely performance. Specialty: It’s a digital camera type and also it has a massive resolution of 10 mega pixels with 3.3x optical zoom.

Canon PowerShot A480 review

11 June 2009
  • Summary: If you're a tripod-shooter, a steady-handed photographer, or just want a bargain-bin camera with good image quality, the Canon PowerShot A480 is worth a look. Its lack of image stabilisation and some modes, however, may cause action photographers to pass it up.

From the Lab Canon PowerShot A480

9 June 2009
  • Excerpt: (1 items) Canon’s PowerShot A480 is designed for people who want to shoot pictures without fussing over camera settings. It’s a dead-simple, reasonably stylish point-and-shoot camera to have on hand when you’re hanging out with friends and family. Available in black, blue, red, and silver, the boxy PowerShot A480 measures 3.6 by 2.4 by 1.2 inches and weighs 7 ounces.
  • Pros: Easy to use. Very good overall image quality
  • Cons: Not many features. No image stabilization. Switching camera modes is slow

Canon PowerShot A480

18 December 2009
  • Excerpt: The Canon Powershot A480 certainly won't win any design awards, with a slightly boxy design and "toy-camera" styling. While it won't impress your friends with its looks, the A480 is undeniably a well-made, quite compact digital camera, with an understated metallic blue, silver and black plastic body and excellent overall finish, impressive considering its budget price-tag.
