Canon PowerShot A480

People are impressed by the name and the brand; they usually go for the tried and tested rather anything new. After all, a known devil is better than an unknown angel. The Canon PowerShot A480 is a step further than the Canonís range of compact cameras, which started with the A5 and A5 Zoom in 1998 and had continued to upgrade itself, rather than just turn out as old wine in a new bottle. This 10.3 mp camera, with the zoom range of 3.3x, has had to sacrifice its viewfinder in the process, but does come up with interesting features.

Design and Functioning

The Canon PowerShot A480 shape is almost the same as that of its earlier ones, which boasted of a sleek, easy design. Perhaps its size has increased, because of the many features it comes with! One of the foremost technological advancement with this PowerShot camera is the Active Display, which is used for quickly switching between images during playback Ė it advances pictures simply with a gentle shake of the wrist, making the viewing and sharing of pictures more fun and enjoyable. This camera that comes with Face and Motion Detection technologies comes in colour like Cobalt Blue, Plum Red, Midnight Black and Metallic Silver. The device is compatible with SD, SDHC and MMC cards and comes with an internal memory of 32MB.
