So nice, I bought it twice!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 May 2013
  • Summary: I loved this camera when I bought it in 2010 (and used it nearly daily). After much use, the motor began making noises, and I got the occasional lens error, so I decided it was time to replace it. Love, love, love this camera!

IS IT JUST ME?

Dragonfly, Amazon
2 May 2013
  • Summary: Is it just me, or are these digital cameras too hard to figure out? I have the get out the instructions every time I use this. The controls aren't intuitive or even mildly friendly.

Use with CHDK

Jake, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this because I needed a cheap camera that could be hacked (google CHDK--it's a software kit that gives you a lot more control over your Canon camera). This, combined with a Gorillapod tripod and a 16 GB SD card, let me take time-lapse images with manual control over focus, ISO, and shutter speed, for well under $100. The only things I'm not crazy about are the lack of an internal rechargeable battery and the mediocre quality of the images.

Good

  • Summary: My mom loves this! IT was a gift for her and she uses it all the time, small, compact, easy to use as my mother is elderly and not up to date on technology.

Used Canon Powershot A480

david ubach, Amazon
4 December 2012
  • Summary: The camera was fine as far as all the functions working properly and the picture quality is great. The only problem we had was there was some corrosion on the battery contacts and it drains batteries dead even when off. It appears someone left some AA batteries in it to corrode and it caused some damage. But it does work fine as far as the funtions. It just has a very short battery life and you cant leave batteries in it when its turned off.

Easy to use Canon A480 digital camera and inexpensive

dshoneyc, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: Did a lot of searching for a reliable, easy to use, inexpensive point & shoot digital camera.  This one doesn't break the bank, is a reliable Canon product (unlike my much more expensive Konica/Minolta that cannot be repaired) and was so easy to immediately shoot what I needed without reading a ton of information.  Easy to handle, lightweight and love the bright fun colors it comes in...  Its not fancy but adequate for what I want to capture.

The Canon A480 is a great camera for under $150.

  • Excerpt: I spent a quite a few weeks looking at digital cameras under $150.  I was looking for short shutter lag, more than 6 mp, but not a lot of bells and whistles.  I mostly take family snapshots and I have a 3 year old so I wanted it to be fast.  The Canon A480 has met and/or exceeded my expectations.  It's lightweight, acceptable shutterlag and price are what I was looking for.

The Canon PowerShot A480 is sloooooooooooooow

libraryminx, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I'm a very amateur photographer, and last year I finally got around to upgrading my several-years-old 3 megapixel Sony camera. I wanted something decent but basic, so I chose the Canon Powershot A480. The PowerShot A480 is very much an entry-level digital camera. It has a 10 megapixel sensor and 3.3x optical zoom, which are more than enough for me; I mostly print out 4x6 photos, but the occasional 5x7 or 8x10 have turned out fine.

The Canon - PowerShot A480 Camera is Awsome.

hiddengamerfilms, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera for a trip to New York. I took almost 200 pictures with it. However, after a few days there, the lenses broke. When it started up it make a loud creaking noise. Image Quality dropped and the camera stopped working all together when I got back home. It gave me an error code. I looked it up online and it ended up to be very widespread. However, I traded it in for a New one, the exact same camera and has been working perfectly.
