Fun, pocket-sized and totally intuitive.

10.0 Megapixels
With a 10 Megapixel sensor, you can capture every scene in vivid detail – ready for printing at sizes as large as A3+, or cropping to perfection without losing the detail necessary for larger prints.

Compact and colourful
Small and light enough to slip into a pocket, the PowerShot A480 has a classic, stylish design that feels great in the hand. Controlled by a simple button layout, it comes in a choice of four attractive colours.

3.3x optical zoom
Frame every picture perfectly with a Canon 3.3x optical zoom. In combination with digital zoom, magnification of up to 13x can be achieved.

DIGIC III
As well as powering Face Detection Technology, Canon’s DIGIC III processor provides fast response times, superb image quality and colour reproduction. DIGIC III also delivers advanced noise reduction – ensuring that images remain sharp and clear.

15 shooting modes
A selection of shooting modes - including dedicated Kids & Pets and Indoor modes - make it easy to get the right settings for any scene. Simply select the mode you want, and let the camera take care of everything else.

1cm Macro shooting
A special 1cm Super Macro mode allows you to capture small scale detail from as close as 1cm away.

Great people shots
A suite of Face Detection technologies detects up to nine faces in a scene and adjusts focus, exposure, flash settings and white balance – for optimal results with natural-looking skin tones.

Auto Red-Eye Correction
Available in shooting or playback mode, Automatic Red-Eye Correction accurately removes the red-eye effect caused by flash.

Motion Detection Technology
Motion Detection Technology uses changes in scene information and scene brightness to accurately identify subject motion. The optimal ISO level is then automatically set, to minimise blur and maximise image quality.

2.5” LCD
Framing, reviewing and sharing shots are equally easy with a bright 2.5” LCD. Night Display mode aids visibility in low light, while a selectable Grid Line display helps with composition.

VGA and LP movies
Supplement your photos with smooth, 30fps VGA video clips. A special Long Play mode lets you store twice the regular amount of footage on your memory card.

Picture quality
Camera type *
There are a number of common types of digital cameras: compact cameras, bridge cameras, mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) and single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Bridge cameras 'bridge the gap' between the low-end compact and high-end professional (SLR) cameras. Also MILCs populate this mid-segment by combining the larger sensors and interchangeable lenses of DSLRs with the live-preview viewing system of compact cameras.
Compact camera
Megapixel *
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.

Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.

Maximum image resolution *
Resolution is the amount of detail held by an image. The higher the resolution, the better (sharper) the image. The maximum image resolution produces the best image.

Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).

Its very hard to like the Canon PowerShot A480 digital camera, because it simply looks and feels awful. The controls are laid out awkwardly on a body that is cramped yet bulky. Its LCD screen has very poor viewing angles and brightness, which can make it hard to frame your shots properly on bright days and when you want to take angled shots from low down or high up. But there is no doubting that the Canon PowerShot A480 can produce impressively crisp and vibrant photos considering its low, low...
