Canon PowerShot A810 First Impressions Review

Designed for absolute novice point-and-shooters, the $109 A810 holds up the bottom-end of the PowerShot lineup.



The A810 is the low-end model in Canon's 2012 PowerShot lineup. It's a AA-powered camera, marketed as an "easy and fun" model with a 5x optical zoom and a 16-megapixel sensor. It replaces last year's A800 and will sell for just $109 in black, silver, and red shades.

No, it won't attract much attention or turn any heads, but as long as these cameras are coming out, we'll be covering them. We spent a few (just a few) minutes with the A810 at CP+ 2012 in Japan to gather some initial impressions. Read on for more.
