The PowerShot A480 is an entry-level point and shoot digital camera from Canon. The PowerShot A480 features a 10 megapixel DIGIC III image processor, a 3.3x optical zoom lens and is compatible with AA batteries. Users can set up their shots using the 2.5” LCD screen. This camera differs from its predecessor, the PowerShot A470 by offering 3 additional megapixels, a more compact body and a simplified button layout and user interface. Canon has implemented 15 preset scene modes, which allow the user to optimize their photos with the correct settings. The integrated face detection technology automatically adjusts focus, exposure, flash settings and white balance for optimal image quality when shooting people. The PowerShot A480 also features automatic red eye correction and motion detection, which reduces blur. Users can also record standard-definition video with sound in addition to taking photos. The PowerShot A480 is available in silver, red, blue or black.
