The A3300 IS comes equipped with a 5x optical zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent of 28(W) - 140(T)mm. The lens will retract into the camera when powered down and a lens cover will close for its protection. Canon's Optical Image Stabilization (IS) allows the user to shoot handheld images at 2-3 stops lower than without, increasing the versatility of the camera. Canon also uses a TTL contrast detection autofocus system to focus on your subjects, even when they are not centered.

Focus Range:

Normal: 3cm (1.2 in.) - infinity (W); 90cm (3 ft.) - infinity (T)
Macro:  (W) 4.5cm (1.8 in.) - (T) 50cm (1.6ft.)

canon_A3300is_back.jpgCanon has installed a 3-inch color TFT LCD screen with approximately 230K dots on the A3300 IS. This screen makes it easy to frame and view your images, as well as navigate through the function and menu screens with ease.

Here are the controls on the back of the camera. First you will see the Face Selection and Playback buttons. Underneath these two buttons is the 4-way pad, that allows you to navigate through the menus, index mode (playback) and allows you to scroll when you are zoomed in on a captured image. While in record mode, it is also offers shortcut buttons for Exposure Compensation, Flash, Self Timer and Macro shooting settings. The FUNC./SET button in the center brings up the function menu in shooting mode and also selects all of your settings or options in the menus. On the bottom are the DISPlay and MENU buttons.
