The PowerShot A495 has a 3.3x Optical Zoom lens (35mm film equivalent 37 - 122mm) that let you capture up-close and memorable images.

Smart AUTO will do the work for you by intelligently selecting the proper settings for the camera based on 18 predefined shooting situations.
Just set the Canon PowerShot A495 to Smart AUTO and you're ready for maximum enjoyment from your picture-taking every time. It's a relaxing and satisfying way to shoot because you can completely concentrate on your subject knowing that the camera has the technical details covered.

So whether you're photographing flowers, a captivating sunset, or your friends at the park, you can be confident that you're getting dramatic, memorable images.

New Scene Modes such as Super Vivid for additional bursts of color, and Poster Effect for a unique artistic look, which gives the shooter more creative freedom to capture images their way!
The Canon PowerShot A495 gives you even more creative freedom by including new modes made to get the kind of images people talk about. Super Vivid captures the colors you see with your mind's eye, saturating the scene with intense colors. Turn drab scenes into exciting compositions, when dull pinks blaze into brilliant fuchsia and off-yellows suddenly burn bright and hot. Even dark colors become richer with Super Vivid. Sunsets and floral scenes turn into bursts of color, and get your photo noticed.
