  • newegg A Smarter Camera Means Better Photos Photographers of all levels appreciate a camera – especially a go-anywhere compact digital – that takes the hassle out of capturing beautiful images. The PowerShot A810 gives you Smart AUTO – sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button. Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture when shooting still images. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away.
  • newegg Shoot brilliant 720p HD video with a dedicated movie button You can shoot high definition video anytime, anywhere right from the pocket-sized PowerShot A810 digital camera. With a simple push of the dedicated movie button, you'll be able to instantly record every moment in motion. 720p HD video is smooth, vivid, and beautifully lifelike, making it an ideal way to capture special memories. In addition to being able to shoot 720p HD video at 25 frames per second, the PowerShot A810 can also shoot 640 x 480 VGA video at 30* frames per second. (*Actual frame rate is 29.97 fps.)
  • newegg A 16.0 Megapixel Image Sensor with DIGIC 4 Image Processor for exceptional performance With the camera’s 16.0 Megapixels of resolution, your images are rich and clear, with textures and tiny details faithfully reproduced even at the long end of the big 5x Optical Zoom. This high level of resolution is ideal for creating the largest prints, and allows you the flexibility to blow up and crop any section of an image to express your creativity. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor powers the camera's advanced systems and features, ensuring fast, reliable performance with low battery consumption.
  • newegg 5X Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle lens delivers stunning images Despite its slim profile, the PowerShot A810 digital camera houses a powerful Genuine Canon 5x Optical Zoom Lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. The zoom starts at 28mm wide-angle and extends to 140mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), covering a wide and highly useful range. The telephoto reach gives you the freedom to capture subjects from afar, while the 28mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings.
  • newegg Say Goodbye to Blur Digital IS beats the blur that mars many shots by recognizing the main subject, then automatically applying the camera shake correction that best suits the situation. If the subject is a person, blur reduction processing is performed. For landscapes, cityscapes and other still scenes, the camera takes 3 quick successive shots and composes them into a single clear image. If the subject is moving, the camera takes 3 successive shots, then automatically saves the clearest image.
  • newegg Spectacular Effects Made Easy You ’ll be surprised at how easy it is to create upscale photographic effects with the PowerShot A810 digital camera's Scene Modes. No special lenses are necessary, just a one-step camera setting. Scene Modes include Fisheye Effect for the classic convex distortion; Toy Camera Effect that recreates the toy or pinhole camera look; and Monochrome that adds a distinct single-tone effect to your photos.
