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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
