Overview

HD Video Comes to the A-Series!

Freshly redesigned with a sophisticated silhouette in five exciting colors, the PowerShot A3300 IS digital camera has all the power you need to capture your life your way. At heart, though, it's a true A-Series camera: incredibly easy to use whether you're an experienced photographer or a beginner. 16.0 Megapixel resolution delivers beautiful images with every detail intact. A 5x Wide-Angle (28mm) Optical Zoom gets you up close quickly and puts more picture in every frame, while the Optical Image Stabilizer ensures clear, steady shots every time. And now, for the first time in an A-Series camera, you can shoot video in stunningly realistic 720p High Definition, capturing the special times in your life just the way you remember them. Everything about this camera is easy: Smart AUTO makes every shot better without any effort on your part, by intelligently selecting proper settings based on a full 32 predefined shooting situations, while the big, clear 3-inch LCD screen shows you exactly what you're shooting. The PowerShot A3300 IS makes it fun and easy to add extra creativity to your photography with new Creative Filters mode, and new Discreet Mode lets you shoot wherever, whenever by disabling sound and flash.

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.
