The Canon Powershot A3300 IS Digital Camera (Red) is a great combination of superb image quality and easy-to-use creative features. High resolution of 16.0 megapixels, a 5x 28-140mm (35mm equivalent) wide-angle zoom lens, plus a 3.0" LCD monitor for composing and viewing photos and video put this camera in a class by itself.

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. No fuss, no muss Smart Auto mode programs the optimal settings for common shooting situations, and Creative Filters make creativity easy with Fisheye, Miniature, Toy Camera, Monochrome, Super Vivid and Poster effects for more high-impact images.

Smile Detection mode recognizes and captures your subject's smile. A Discreet Mode disables the sound, flash and AF beam to let you take photos in quiet areas without disturbing anyone. For super dramatic close-up photos, the Macro mode lets you focus as close as 1.8". And all of this is powered by a rechargeable NB-8L battery pack that gives you approximately 230 shots per charge.

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.
