Canon PowerShot A480 is 25% smaller than that its predecessor PowerShot A470
Canon recently replaced its popular PowerShot A470 with a new 10.0 Megapixel model: the extra-compact, affordable PowerShot A480. Redesigned for even more intuitive operation, the Canon PowerShot A480 offers a new build and design that is 25% smaller than that of its predecessor – in a choice of silver, red, blue or black. Flexible framing of shots is made easy by a 3.3x Canon optical zoom, while Canon’s DIGIC III processor delivers high image quality, superb colour reproduction, Face Detection Technology and Motion Detection Technology. To keep shots looking sharp, Motion Detection Technology uses changes in scene information to identify subject motion and camera-shake. ISO is then optimized for minimum blur and maximum image quality.
A range of 15 preset shooting modes allows any user to instantly get the correct settings for common scenes. Options include dedicated Kids & Pets, Sunset, and Indoor modes. It’s also equally easy to shoot spontaneous 30fps video clips, ready for upload to the internet or sharing via the bright 2.5” LCD screen. The Canon PowerShot A480 measures 92 x 62 x 31 mm, weigh 140 g and is powered by 2x AA batteries.
