  • Summary: I already knew and owned a camera, but unfortunately it stopped working. I found this wonderful state of preservation. Now I can get back to shooting underwater. Thank you Jimmy was a great salesman.

Within its 4.0MP limit, you can't do better than this camera! LOVE IT!

  • Summary: I bought this camera many years ago, and it has served me well. It is durable and dependable. The screen is small, 'tis true, but it rotates, which makes it possible to take pictures from all kinds of crazy angles and still see what you are shooting, as opposed to all modern point-and-shoot cameras.

Badly Outdated Technology. Don't buy.

  • Summary: This camera is a DINOSAUR. It is HEAVY and BULKY. Picture quality is low and tiny screen makes taking photos difficult. Don't buy this as a functioning camera. Maybe an antique or a paperweight. JUNK.

Great quality, small display

A. Nonymous, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera takes terrific shots and is easy to operate. The memory cards are affordable and the feature set is robust enough even for advanced photographers. The swivel screen is a nice addition and I have used it more than I thought I would. The only thing I would change would be to increase the display size to that of the competition (this kept me from giving it 5 stars).

Excellent picture quality, top of the line camera

T. Snyder "AZMom", Amazon

  • Summary: I am a mom of a toddler and also a scrapbooker so I wanted a camera that would take excellent pictures. The Canon A80 is a bit more than I needed~ I am a point-and-shoot person and didn't care to get involved in manual modes. The Canon is fairly small and easily fits in my diaper bag~ it is a bit heavier than some other cameras but this is due to the fact it takes 4 batteries, which are well worth their weight in battery life.

Quality counts - cheapest doesn't mean best

VTRocker, Amazon
5 June 2005
  • Summary: I did a lot of research prior to purchasing the Canon A80 digital camera. I read a lot of reviews, many right here at Amazon. I also looked into lens quality and the quality of electronics. I read consumer report's test results. The bottom line - as with most things in life "you get what you pay for". You can find cameras with more than 4MPs, however, my research indicated that the picture quality may not be as good as Canon's 3MP A70.

Very good camera.

Reza Jacobs, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using this camera for 10 months now. It has given me no trouble at all. Batteries last well. There is enough sophistication built in if you want to be more professional. But it is also very user-friendly for the novices. The quality of photos is exceptional. The reversable LCD is good because a) it conserves battery, b) it protects the screen, and c) it allows you to take selfportraits without the guesswork.

A fantastic buy

S. Simko, Amazon
17 October 2004
  • Summary: From an amateur who has never had a digital camera before, I LOVE the A80! I purchased the camera to simply take pictures of our new baby and easily email them to family and friends. Initially, I appreciated the auto-focus feature, swivel LCD screen and 4 mega pixels to print great large-size photos (up to 11x14" photo quality).

Marvelous Tool or Toy

E. M. Lisansky "mrnews", Amazon
22 September 2004
  • Summary: The A80 is a wonderfully simple-to-use digital camera, yet has all the manual adjustments a semi-professional (or serious amateur) photographer could ever want. I bought this about six months ago as a replacement for my Canon A40, which also produced amazingly good quality pics, but is only 2.0 megapixels. The A80 is 4.0 MP, which gives you the headroom to create slightly larger prints, at least up to 8 X 10 with excellent quality.

Amazing!

Amazon Customer "trillimer", Amazon
15 September 2004
  • Summary: I did a lot of research on the internet prior to purchasing my first digital camera and I'm glad I did. I highly recommend this camera to anyone, whether a seasoned pro who wants a nice, pocket-sized camera or a beginner who needs a little experience taking quality pictures. I highly advise anyone who hasn't owned a digital camera to take a lot of shots before using it for something important.
