Be Dazzled by Technology!
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.
