Gorgeous 720p HD video is built-in and easy to use. Sensitivity up to 6400 ISO, built-in image stabilization and a Low Light mode will make blurry pictures a thing of the past.

Toy Camera Effect
Simulates photos taken with "toy" or pinhole cameras, darkening the image at the edges to create a vignette effect.

Super Vivid
Super Vivid intensifies existing hues, saturating the scene with bright colors.
Poster Effect
Poster Effect combines several similar shades into one color, turning subtle gradations into eye-catching, scene-popping contrasts.
Easy
Keep the image quality as high as possible for fail-proof images.
Blur Reduction
Boosts sensitivity to enable faster shutter speeds, reducing the effects of camera shake and subject movement.
Portrait
The camera sets a large aperture, focusing the subject and artistically blurring the background to make your subject "pop."

Charge Up and Go
The Canon PowerShot A3300 IS digital camera uses a lithium-ion battery. This compact, powerful battery helps make it a lightweight and slim camera. Charge-up is quick and easy, so the PowerShot A3300 IS will be ready and waiting for those special moments.
Shoot without Distractions
How many times have you found yourself in a situation where you wanted to take a picture, but were reluctant (or simply not allowed) to disrupt the setting with noise or flash? New Discreet Mode makes picture-taking possible in museums, at performances, anywhere light and sound would not be welcome. Simply turn the mode dial to Discreet, and the camera's sound, flash and AF assist beam will be disabled - without changing any other settings. If the camera senses low light, ISO speed will be automatically raised to get the best possible shot. You can even switch to playback mode to review still images or video, and the camera will remain muted.
Photographic Artistry That's Easy for Anyone.
Creative Filters Mode gives you lots of fun, easy ways to make your photography more creative. The camera does all the work - you simply choose an effect and shoot! Fisheye Effect imparts a fun, familiar curvilinear distortion to your image that's ideal for kids and pets. Miniature Effect plays with perspective, giving any shot the look of a world created in much smaller proportions - great for landscapes and city shots. When you shoot in Toy Camera Effect, you get the vintage effect of a first-generation camera, ideal for giving portraits a slightly distorted, unevenly saturated look of a picture you'd come across in your attic. Monochrome lends a moody beauty to your photography, producing shots in Black & White, Sepia or Blue. Super Vivid saturates colors to heighten the intensity and impact of any shot. Poster Effect takes away transitions between objects in the frame to give your image the high-impact look of a hand-painted poster.
See the Image on a Big Screen
The PowerShot A3300 IS's large 3.0" LCD screen gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear and bright picture. It also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light.

    I bought this camera because I feel that I am missing some photo opportunities due to the fact that my Canon 5D Mark II is cumbersome and not so fast to get out of the case.

    I have not shot much with it as of yet but the little that I have, I am satisfied with the image quality. I was delighted to find out that I can actually set the ISO where I want it instead of it giving me just an auto ISO. Just for the record; don't go higher than ISO 200 if you want noise-free images when viewing at 100%.

    The only thing so far that I am not so crazy about is that I would like to look through the lens, not the screen, but yes, the camera is compact and I guess you just can't fit everything in it.

    All in all, if you are looking for a compact camera that does it all, this seems like a pretty good pick.

    Comments about Powershot A3300 IS Digital Camera (Black):

    I use the camera for casual picture taking mostly, although I do also like to have high quality pictures when taking pictures. I got this camera on sale for [$] and for the money, it seems to be worth it. The lag time between photos is an issue. I purchased a higher quality SD card to avoid this, but it didn't seem to help much. And maybe I have to learn how to use it better, but I find that sometimes I will push and push and push on the shutter and for whatever reason it doesn't want to take the picture. This has been frustrating, but again, I may have more to learn about the camera. The movies are HD, provided you are out in full daylight. Otherwise, you can expect indoor videos to be as grainy as any other. I like a lot of features that it has and have yet to tap into them all. Macro setting takes beautiful close ups. I like that the settings wheel is external, not something in the menu as with my last point and shoot Olympus.

      I didn't want to bring my big camera to New York so I stopped by B&H when I got there and got this point and shoot for a surprising price. I've been using it for a couple weeks and I think it's a great little camera. I did get a hard-case for it, which i regret. Get yourself a smaller case so you can stick this in your pocket.

              Picked this camera for a combination of (1) wide aperture (2) long zoom (3) price (4) better brand. We are used to and would have preferred a camera with optical viewfinder, but can probably get used to display only. Camera seems a little finicky about taking pictures at long zoom - won't take picture if it thinks there's too much camera shake. Haven't yet figured out how to select image resolution of captured image. Hope it's there! For some reason I had the impression camera comes with a soft case - it doesn't.

                    I owned a Canon Power shot before, but lost it in a pool of pinot grigio. I cannot be without a camera for more than 1 week. So when I went on a search for a new one, I browsed for hours but always came back to a Canon, and I'm glad I did. This camera is easy to use and consistently takes great photos in any setting. I took pictures in a bright restaurant and later at a dark restaurant - each one came out perfect. For someone that does not have time to learn about different settings - this camera is for you. It is fool proof and provides a great photo each time. Plus, the pink makes it fun and it's size fits perfectly in any bag for a fun night on the town.

                                My Girlfriends' old Point and shoot died on our trip to NYC jan 1,2012. So I hopped on the Metro and went to B&H to get her a suprise replacement.

                                I was in and out in less than an hour with this camera and as part of a kit and she has been thrilled with it. I scored major points!

                                It's a good P&S. 16mp is a lot but you can reduce the file sizes. It's not the best low light camera but I thought it was slick that it will reduce the to 5mp to give better low light performance.

                                For the price it was perfect as a general purpose point and shoot. The controls are easy and the on screen help has cut down on the "Honey what's this?" barrage you get with introducing someone to a new camera.

                                This very small camera with a very small price is the best bang for the buck that I have seen so far.
                                Great for informal shooting great images and very unobtrusive .
                                Highly recommended.

                                    I bought this camera for my 79 year old father in law. I wanted a camera that was very easy and intuitive to use. This camera fits the bill. Within two minutes of showing him the major buttons,where the memory card and battery goes he was taking his first pictures. It is small enough to fit in your shirt pocket but still feels very solid.
