Canon PowerShot A80 review

 

Canon PowerShot A80

Broad feature set for the money; speedy and efficient performance; accepts accessory lenses.

Relatively small LCD; CompactFlash compartment has a flimsy-feeling cover.

A great mainstream camera for snapshooters who want room to grow creatively.

Canon PowerShot A80

 

The Canon PowerShot A80 offers most of what you want from a 4-megapixel camera: reliable automatic settings, a fairly wide range of manual controls, and good ease of use.
