      I had to go to Cambodia for a 2-week trip and I was informed that due to a lot of travelling, we would not be able to charge our electronic devices as often. Hence I was looking for a camera that uses the double A batteries instead of the lithium type so that I can change the batteries once they were dead.

      Also, I had a budget of SGD $200. So I looked around


      and trust me, it’s really difficult to find cameras using double A batteries these days. Then I saw a red Canon PowerShot A480, which was pretty small and compact. It’s said to be the cheapest of Canon’s range of compact cameras. And I got it for SGD $199. Sounds good yeah?

      • camera was spoilt. It’s still usable, but there’s a “cracking” sound when you turn on the camera. I had to live with the “cracking” sound for 2 weeks. I suggest that if you want to buy this camera, please use it delicately. I’m obviously too rough with it, on my Cambodia roadatrip!

        I had it serviced when I got back home. Luckily I bought a 4-year warranty for another $40. I recommend that you

        get the extended warranty with this camera. Otherwise it’s a good camera, you can capture closeups as well. 10 megapixels, 3.3x zoom, digic III image processor, 2.5″ screen which is just right.

        However, this camera is considered bulky compared to models like the Ixus and all. But it’s a good buy considering I got 2 + 2 GB of memory cards, a tripod stand, a casing and a rechargeable 4-battery set. What a good deal!
