Summary: The pictures it takes are excellent for the money spent, but uploading them to the laptop is more of a pain than I'd like. I had to resort to the use of a USB memory card reader to upload them conveniently.
Summary: I generally liked the camera and found it easy to use. However, I was surprised to learn that you absolutely needed a memory card. Most cameras will have enough space to put a handful of pictures on, like 6 or 12, before needing to put in a memory card.
A simple unpretentious camera that does what is meant for, and nothing more

Summary: I bought this camera because I wanted a simple little one to carry around all the time instead of my big DSLR. I wasn't expecting much for this price and, effectively, the camera is plain and simple with only the standard tools: adjustable ISO 100-1600, autofocus, red-eye reduction and decent video...
Summary: I was looking for a cheap camera for hiking (not to be sorry in case it's lost or damaged). Image quality is OK, however Canon A800 is noticeably heavier and bulkier than Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS etc. Also it's slower when focusing and saving pictures. Pros: price and AA batteries.
Summary: I bought this camera because it looked really fancy on the pic. I should have noticed that there was only one pic and it is really not enough to fully evaluate the product. They also did not mention that this camera is an old-facioned in terms of battery.
Camera fine but it arrived without any instructions

Summary: Camera fine but it arrived without any instructions, no memory card or USB connection, so it took me quite awhile to get it set up. When I rang the company they were very helpful and sent a memory stick and card by post, and some instructions on line.
