The Canon PowerShot A800 is a simple point-and-shoot digital camera. This is a basic camera similar to the Canon PowerShot A1200, but with a smaller sensor, less optical zoom, and no creative filters. Otherwise they are the same, with AA battery power, selectable Scene Modes for various lighting situations, and a Smart AUTO system that automatically selects the best camera settings for the situation. In this case the LCD display is 2.5 inches, and the sensor has a 10 megapixel sensitivity with 3.3x wide-angle optical zoom. Standard features common to all Canon PowerShot cameras are also included such as face detection and red-eye correction.
