£60 Canon Powershot A480 10.0 Megapixel Camera

Every aspect of the PowerShot A480 has been redesigned with one thing in mind: ease of use.

Thanks to a new, simplified button layout - with dedicated buttons for zoom, mode and playback and an improved User Interface, it's as easy to operate as it is to carry. Compact proportions make the PowerShot A480 an ideal 'take-anywhere' camera, perfect for capturing spontaneous snapshots.

Small and light enough to slip into a pocket, the PowerShot A480 has a classic, stylish design that feels great in the hand. With Canon's market leading optical Image Stabilizer you can keep images sharp by reducing the effects of camera shake throughout the zoom range.

15 shooting modes - including dedicated Kids & Pets and Indoor modes - make it easy to get the right settings for any scene. Select the mode you want and let the camera take care of everything else. Supplement your photos with smooth, 30fps VGA video clips.

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.
