Canon PowerShot A800 Point & Shoot Digital Camera Grey - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Canon PowerShot A800 is probably one of the most famous “low budget” Point and Shoot devices to have entered the camera world, and though the specifications of this device are not necessarily very attractive, one thing which is certain is that Canon PowerShot A800 offers more than it should, given the price tag it has been embedded with. As such Canon PowerShot A800 comes with a 10 Megapixel sensor, 3.3x optical zoom lens and a 2.5 inch LCD screen and of the time of its launch it was probably the cheapest and the most primitive Point and Shoot that can be got in exchange of currency. The device replaced Canon PowerShot A490/A495 in the array of digital cameras from Canon, and like its predecessors it features two AA batteries and shoots VGA (640 x 480) resolution video. By introducing this device Canon, the multinational camera giant has pretty much simplified it’s A-series line up of cameras, and it has done that by replacing both Canon PowerShot A495 and Canon PowerShot A490 by a single model called Canon PowerShot A800.


Though the upper end device of the two predecessors, A495 was still available in the market after A800’s launch, it hardly seemed a long duration case and eventually was discontinued. In my opinion, Yes! The camera is great for the pricing put on it, but the wise decision would be to put smart money on Canon PowerShot A1200. Now, also running on twin AA batteries, Canon PowerShot A1200 features a larger 12.1 megapixel sensor, a wider zoom range, a bigger screen, more shooting modes and 720p video which is like the most basic amenity in a Point and Shoot today. Now, the entry level compact market is really becoming more competitive every passing day, and companies are resorting to the best possible array of features in minimum possible prices to maximise the profit, so it is important as a customer to put smart money on the device that offers maximum in minimum. Nikon’s entry level COOLPIX L24 is priced almost like Powershot A800 and features 14.1 megapixel sensor, a 3-inch screen at around the same, so there you have, the smart pick.

Design and Build Quality

Yes, there have been some minor cosmetic changes in Canon PowerShot A800, but as such it doesn’t drastically change in styling from its predecessor. The trademark wedge shape of the device has been retained and its make a very good, comfortable and secure grip, now amplified by a somewhat depressed front panel which provides a crest for the fingers of your left hand. The lens does not change, but the bezel on it has been condensed a little in size and the AF illuminator has been moved from under the flash to the opposite side where, if not alert enough, you can destroy it by a mere touch.


Focus and Face Detection

Canon PowerShot embeds within it two Auto Focus modes which are the default Face AiAF mode which easily detects the faces in the pictures and tracks them perfectly which sets both focus and the exposure mode accordingly. One of the key distinctions from Canon PowerShot A495 and Canon PowerShot A490 are the number of AF ares – 9 on the first and 5 on the successor. Sadly, Canon PowerShot comes with lesser of the two with only 5 Auto Focus areas, although in practice the difference is not really visible and the device is quick to spot faces and hold onto them well, even when they're some distance to the camera and not facing front on but the grapes may be sour here.

Lens and Image Stabilization

There is no improvement in this field as Canon PowerShot A800 still retains the little 3.3x, 6.6 - 21.6mm (37 - 122mm equivalent) optical zoom lens from its precursor which is really typical of the device and zoom isn’t that bad either, you can nicely frame your shots using thing and well if you are planning on going to a safari with your family throw this thing away. One advantage of a short zoom range is that you can cover it quickly - it takes a little over a second to zoom from full wide angle to maximum telephoto and the action is smooth, if a little noisy. One positive that I draw out of here is that when the switch is pressed and the lens extends, the camera is ready to shoot in just like two seconds, yes there are faster cameras, but fill your pockets with a lot more cash for them.


Screen and Menus

Canon PowerShot A800 features a 2.5 inch LCD screen which has like 115 thousand pixels, which may be the most basic screen ever seen in a long time, this screen can generate good but highly pixellated images, unlike higher ordered ones in PowerShot A1200, COOLPIX L24 and the Sony Cyber-shot W510.



The source of power of Canon PowerShot A800 is twin AA batteries which are used as power source. There have been many critisms regarding the battery life of Canon PowerShot A495, it was a mere 150 shots and in Canon Powershot, Canon has bounced right back providing this device a 100% increase in shots giving it 300 shots.


Video Mode

Canon PowerShot A800 can shoot movies at VGA 640 x 480 pixel resolution at 30 frames per second with a long play version of the same format which compresses the video into a file half the size. There's also a 320 x 240 pixel 30 fps size. Files areound half an hour of footage on a 4GB card.



Canon  PowerShot A800 has a 10 Megapixel sensor that produces still images wi saved in a AVI wrapper using a Motion JPEG codec. VGA resolution movies are encoded at an average bit rate of around 14mbits/s which means you'll fit arth a maximum size of 3648 x 2736 pixels. ISO sensitivity ranges from 100 to 1600 ISO.
