This is the third one I've bought

  • Summary: I've had accidents with my previous ones, not an issue with the manufacturing, but I prefer buying the same model over and over because it's so reliable and the price keeps dropping. I originally paid $500 for a new one in 2006, almost half as much two years ago and abut $100 in 2013. My favorite thing about this camera is how versatile the Manual Mode is.

User Review

Artur Nogueira - Portugal, LetsGoDigital

  • Excerpt: The Canon Powershot S80 is an excellent digital camera, despite the lack of the Raw format, which I do not understand and hope that could be available on a future firmware if possible. Good lens, good tonal balance - very natural - excellent resolution, good array of features, manual control, optical viewfinder, good ergonomics in a small compact - not as pocketable as I would like - great camera.

Great Camera!

michifur, Amazon
21 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought this camera in part because it had the widest angle (28) in a still compact camera size. I only use the automatic functions, not being a true camera buff. That given, I love it! It takes great pictures, has lots of functions, and everyone who sees it says Nice camera and Nice pictures!

Nice little pocketable

Tezza "Tezza", Amazon
28 November 2007
  • Summary: I currently own a Canon 20D so I was looking for a high quality pocketable camera as a compliment to my "big rig". The S80 is a nice size, although maybe a little heavier than expected, but still pocketable. The manual itself is not up to the usual Canon standards, in my opinion. I found it difficult to understand the manual, which is kind of strange, since I was able to easily follow the manual for the 20D which is theoretcially a much more complicated camera.

Yeah .. Its good but I expected more

Rajeev Bector, Amazon
28 November 2007
  • Summary: I got this one to replace my S110 and also to take to places where I cant take my D70. Overall, the camera takes good pictures. I will focus on the cons. For this much price, I would like to see following improvements: 1) Thinner and slightly smaller than what it is so that I can fit it into my pocket (its not a big deal but a wish list) 2) The LCD resolution is _BAD_ for a camera in this price range. I seriously seriously wish that Canon fixes it.

picture perfect

Dr. Moebius, Amazon
28 November 2007
  • Summary: I would not recommend it for your aging parents or in-laws, unless they happen to be professional photographers The Powershot S80's advanced features are more likely to appeal to folks with more photographic experience. Cons: 1. Slightly larger than the Canon Elph series, although it still fits in my pocket. 2. Shutter can stay open only 15 seconds maximum (I would of liked at least 30 seconds for nighttime exporsures). 3.

Canon s80 vs 20D & Underwater photography

Steven G., Amazon
28 November 2007
  • Summary: A week before out trip to Australia I bought the S80, so I did not have much time experimenting with the camera. Having already a Canon 20D, I bought this camera for two specific reasons: 1) Underwater Photography 2) City & familie pictures (the 20D is just too large to take inconspicious with you). First off, the pictures taken with the 20D are better then the S80 but not by much in bright light.

Canon S-80 is Amazing

P. Falle, Amazon
28 November 2007
  • Summary: I have had several different digital Camera's since 1998. I have generally stuck to the Sony Brand because I love the Carl Zeiss Lenses, but I have also had Casio and used Nikon quite a bit. as far as smaller non SLR camera's go this one is awesome! It does take a little getting used to because there are a lot of options to choose from but once you get the hang of it, its really an impressive camera.

A Compact That Tries To Be a DSLR (and Almost Succeeds)

J. Wong, Amazon
28 November 2007
  • Summary: I bought my S80 on the recommendation of those fine people at dpreview, who describe this camera as suitable for a serious photographer wanting DSLR capability in a compact. After a week of fiddling and testing in various conditions, I'm really impressed with both the camera and the accuracy of the dpreview. No, this tiny little box will not replace your DSLR. It's small sensor and lens handicap it in medium and low light.
