Summary: Love this camera. Takes great pictures. I use it a lot. The only drawback i've found, is that it has trouble focusing in low light situations, then the flash has trouble firing. But worth the money, I'd say.
Summary: This has been a super camera for my 11 year old- it is a bit slow but a great one to learn on. Last year she took disposable cameras to camp and did not have any pictures turn out- this year she came home with a bunch of great ones!
Summary: This camera works pretty well, especially for the price! I bought it for my boyfriend, and he likes it too. Of course, he never uses it as he is a minimalist, but he says it works fine. I've used it a couple times and I am happy with the purchase.
Excerpt: I have won a Canon A800 on an auction site for 60 cents and really wasn't something planned to buy but once I started to play around with it a bit I kinda liked it. I RATE THIS CAMERA WITH 4 STARS AS THE OVERALL QUALITY AND FUNCTIONS WORTH THE MARKET PRICE. PROS: Indoors is lazy.
Summary: I doubt I would pick this camera for my personal use, but I'm currently using it at work (a veterinary hospital) to capture ID photos of pets for their medical charts. As you can imagine, the less shutter delay, the better...Fido and Fluffy are not fans of holding still.
Summary: I lovvve taking pictures everywhere I go, and forgot to get one before I ventured on my vacation. I purchased this camera with the intention to make sure I have a one available, and I am actually surprised on how much I like it.
Summary: This camera is ok. It takes so-so pictures which (even though it is rated at 10 megapixels) are not as sharp as those with my Canon A540. Perhaps the poorer resolution is due to the lack of a viewfinder and certainly in part because of the lack of software to correct for shaking.
Summary: Several years ago I bought a camera for over $300. It recently pooped out and I wanted to spend as little as possible on a new one. From the reviews I read on several websites, this Canon A800 seemed to be a good choice. And it is for the most part.
