Canon Powershot A85 ... from the beach to the ski slope.
Canon has combined some of the world's most advanced digital imaging technology with sixty years of optical heritage to deliver the deceptively simple PowerShot A85: a camera that could not be easier to use, yet with features you can indulge your creative urge with.
Every function on the PowerShot A85 works with you to help take great photos. The 4.0 Megapixel CCD sensor provides enough power to capture every nuance of every shot. Canon Visionary Technologies combine in the form of a superb quality lens and super fast processor to ensure accurate, high clarity image rendering. To speed up focusing and optimize exposures, the camera's iSAPs system analyzes the scene and makes setting adjustments even before the shutter release is pressed.
The PowerShot A85 has a 3x optical zoom to close in on the action, giving you greater scope to get the desired composition. From fully automatic 'point-and-shoot' to completely manual 'total creative control', 13 shooting modes cover every situation. A special 'Scene Mode' gives you access to 6 additional pre-programmed modes including 'foliage', 'beach' and 'fireworks'. The 9-point AiAF ensures beautifully crisp results - even with off-center subjects.
Take up to 3-minute movie clips, complete with sound recording, fun playback and in-camera editing on the large 1.8" LCD monitor. For very high definition playback on a TV, the camera can also record up to 30 second VGA clips.
A Print/Share button makes PC-less home printing to any PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible printer a breeze, and simplifies uploads to any Windows PC. When connected to a Canon Compact Photo Printer, the PowerShot A85 allows you to print a sequence of movie clip frames, and produce your own ID photos.
With Canon's ZoomBrowser EX (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Macintosh) you can arrange photo albums, crop photographs and adjust contrast and brightness with ease.

I purchased this camera a couple of months ago after my trusty twenty year old Nikon snapper finally spluttered its shutter. I bought it from Argos where it cost £149.99, reduced from £229.90 and I've just done a price comparison on Kelkoo, which brought up Amazon as the cheapest supplier at £143.99. It is my first digital camera and I've been having lots of fun with it. I was initially concerned about the amount of pages in the user guide as I prefer just playing about and getting the feel of things rather than reading through instructions, but I needn't have worried it's not difficult to get the hang of, although I am still very much a beginner.
