Instruction Manuals for the

PowerShot “A” Series

The “A” Series was the first of the PowerShot series aimed at the Entry Level photographer. The first model, the A5, was introduced in April of 1998 and the series continued until the PowerShot A3500 IS was introduced in 2013. This took the series from a very simple 0.81 mpx camera to a very advanced 16.0 mpx fully automatic camera.
