GREAT LITTLE CAMERA

  • Summary: I HAVE NEVER OWNED A CANON CAMERA AND NEVER OWNED A COMPACT, BUT THIS LITTLE CAMERA WORKS GREAT. WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR A SMALLER CAMERA.

This is the third one I've bought

J. Goldsmit "jgoldsmit", Amazon

  • 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

  • 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!

Couldn't be Much Better - Amazing

J. Griffin, Amazon
28 November 2007
  • Summary: I have owed many digital cameras over the past 8 years (at least 6), plus fancy Nikon SLRs before digital. I concider myself an amateur photographer. My last camera was a Canon SD500 (i carelessly dropped it hard and it died, it took other drops and was fine) I used it very often for about a year. I loved it!!! But it did not have the manual features I really like, but overall it did do most artistic type shots that I wanted.

Best point and shoot --- with precautions...

Wesley Anderson "World Cruiser", Amazon
28 November 2007
  • Summary: Everyone has already written about the features of this product. I agree with them completely. This is the best point and shoot you could ask for. I just want to warn those of you looking to purchase... I love this camera. I do not regret buying it. I travel all over the world as I currently work on a cruise ship. My old point and shoot was compact and convenient but took horrible low light pictures (low light meaning anything that was not outside).

My massive review!

L. Wilmot "FireFighter", Amazon
28 November 2007
  • Summary: When I was looking at which camera to buy I found an extreme shortage of reviews on the Canon Powershot S80. So I hope that my addition to the growing number of reviews helps. The following format for my review will start with the Pros, then the Cons, and finally a small summary blurb about the camera... PROS: -Appearance ~The Powershot S80 is surprisingly small for the power it packs, which helps make it a suitable pick for anyone who travels. ~Style...

This camera is simply amazing, packed with features, and perfect for the serious amatuer

Phoenix Rising, Amazon
28 November 2007
  • Summary: I had been extremely reluctant to forgo my beloved 35mm cameras and go digital. I own a Canon 7E SLR and an Olympus 28mm-80mm point-and-shoot. When I finally decided to go digital, I planned to replace both 35mm cameras, starting with the Olympus point-and-shoot. After much research, I decided to go with the Canon S80. I have just returned from a 3 week trip to India. The S80 blew me away!

Need repair again (second time)

A. YEATON "Tiggylu", Amazon
23 August 2007
  • Summary: I had a S45 and after loving that camera and quite frankly beating the heck out of it taking photos of two kids and needed a new one. I am now needing repair for the second time. After buying the canon camera bag, I managed to drop it after having it for all of three weeks and the lense cracked. Now 13 months later I can't get the lense cover to close. Very frustrating.

Canon Powershot S80 Digital Camera

jhunie, ReviewStream
13 July 2007
  • Excerpt: I have covered a lot of colorful high-res memories with this old digital cam of mine. For years, I’ve known this gadget like a pal. I don’t exactly have a voyeuristic eye set behind the lens who’s interested in capturing objective subjects, rather I’m indifferent to everything …
