Here is a REAL testimonial from a REAL Canon Powershot A800 user:
A simple unpretentious camera that does what is meant for, and nothing more, May 12, 2011
I bought this camera because I wanted a simple little one to carry around all the time instead of my big DSLR. I wasn’t expecting much for this price and, effectively, the camera is plain and simple with only the standard tools: adjustable ISO 100-1600, autofocus, red-eye reduction and decent video capabilities. It has a simple 3.3x optical zoom and a digital zoom up to 13x. The menus are simple and fairly intuitive. The camera is a bit sluggish even with a class 10 card. The pictures are just OK, do not expect glorious definition or colour response. The fact that the camera uses two AA batteries is advantageous, both if you want to use rechargeable ones or you find yourself somewhere in the world where you would otherwise not find the particular replacement for special batteries.
Having said this you may wonder if it is worth. For this price, in my opinion, yes. Do not ask this little camera for things it was not designed to achieve. If you want a humble little camera to carry with you all the time or to give your children/grandparents as a present, take it. Do you want gorgeous pictures and advanced menus? Then this camera is not for you.
