Canon A480 Price Watch and Availability

First published on: Wednesday, 18 February 2009

The price of most digital cameras tend to trend downwards over time, and the same price drop should occur in the case of the Canon Powershot A480 compact digital camera.

I’m not planning for any scheduled updates, but do check back here from time to time for the latest and best prices on the Canon A480 and related accessories.

The A480 comes in four colors, deep red, navy blue, silver and black, and the price may vary between them.

Typical accessories for the A480

AA batteries — IMEDION or Sanyo Eneloop NiMH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries are your best bet, as they retain the charge for a very long period of time. Purchase additional backup batteries so that your A480 continues to have a power source during extended shooting sessions.

For storage, the A480 uses SD or SDHC cards.

Refer to Rob Galbraith’s SD / SDHC card write speed tests (done on a Nikon D90) to get an idea on the relative write and read speeds of different brands of cards. At the time of writing (Oct 29, 2009), the SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards occupy the top two spots.

To ensure smooth recording of video and high resolution images, go for Class 6 or faster cards.

Good luck shopping for your Canon A480!
