Strengths: Wide Anlge Zoom, Great Picture Quality, Lot of Advance features which you won't find in other cameras in this category
Very happy with this camera. 8 Megapixel combined with a Wide zoom lens make this a powerful performer. Has a sturdy body and is fairly compact for what it can do. The camera with its wide zoom lens lets you see alot more of the surroundings than the other cameras. Usually cameras that have a wide zoom lens are big and bulky and alot more expensive while this one fit a wide zoom lens in such a small package. This camera is just Awesome.

The S80, other reviews, and reality
Strengths: This is a perfect camera
Weakness: Raw mode would be nice
When reading the other reviews you should consider what you are buying... A pocketable camera with many (raw mode would be nice) professional features. In addition, you get added functions to make a less than professional seem more like one.
I've had an S30 (now passed on to my wife). This camera is a bit smaller, a tad heavier, and tons better. (Sure hope she doesn't see this.) I've also have one of those almost credit card sized cameras (the one from Minolta/Konica). It's much smaller and lighter. The pictures it takes are crap compared to either the S30 or S80.
The S80 is an interesction of quality, price, features, and size/weight. You could get a larger (and more expensive) camera and get better quality (though probably not more features except maybe raw move but, I digress). But what good is that if you never have the camera with you. You could get a smaller camera (for less money) and have a camera that fits in a smaller pocket (shirt instead of pants). But what good is that if the pictures you take aren't as good as they could be.
If you want a camera that can be carried with reasonable ease and takes great pictures then... (see strengths)

Did the research and it all lead to the SD550 ... ohh then enter the S80
Strengths: easy to shoot for my wife, and has all of the advanced feature for me, quick to shoot while chasing the little ones, New Canon interface and thumb wheel controls are easy to use
Weakness: A little heavier than I expected
We were really set on either the SD500 or SD550. After researching and play with them in the stores, we were sure we wanted a Canon. My wife likes a simple point and shoot, but I wanted options and gadget settings. We are also trying to snap those quick picks of the little ones and wanted something that turned on fast and clicked away.
We could not find this camera in the stores and took a chance online at a good price. It is a tad thicker and heaver than the SD550 but we are very happy with the screen, size, options, speed, and new Canon interface.

Stay away from Canon
Weakness: reliability - lens locks and Canon wont stand behind Customer Service
STAY AWAY FROM CANON POWERSHOT PRODUCTS - I warn anyone against considering a purchase of any Canon Camera. I purchased a Powershot S80 camera for my son last Christmas. After the first few uses, the lens became locked in the out position. When I returned it to the Canon Factory for repair, they exchanged my camera for a refurbished camera WITHOUT TELLING ME. The first time my son used the refurbished camera, the lens again became locked out. With the lens locked out, he was unable to put it in its case and the camera got sand in it. When I returned it to the factory for service, Canon refused to repair it saying the sand caused the damage. I explained that there would not have been sand damage if the lens had not locked out because it would have been safely in its case. Canon said they could not verify that the sand did not cause the damage first. Lets get real Canon – you had such an extreme problem with your lens mechanism that you had a backlog of orders for the replacement parts that during the first repair that you claim you had to send a replacement camera and the first time the replacement camera was used, the lens problem occurred in the replacement camera. I paid $500 for this piece of junk camera and the treatment by the Canon Customer Service – first substituting a refurbished camera (with a scratched cover) and not telling me that the camera was substituted and by not acknowledging that your defective design in the Power shot cameras was indeed the reason that the camera incurred additional damage. Oh yes! And Canon is so customer friendly, that instead of speaking with me and resolving the issue, they quickly left voice messages and sent the damaged camera back to me.

CanonS80 - good features, bad barrel effect
Strengths: Intuitive controls, many modes including the manual mode, fast picture taking and browsing, compact size.
Weakness: The barrel effect seriously distorting pictures. Also, grainy-looking images at ISO200 or higher.
The camera has excellent controls and menu system. I didn't have to read the manual at all to figure out how to operate all the modes and use all its features! This was my first digital camera ever (I used manual-mode film cameras before), but I felt like I have been using these controls for years. The wide angle lens plus small dimensions were the main reasons why I bought this camera. Other wide angle cameras are bulky - this camera could fit in the pocket in all my jeans, slacks, or the shirt pocket.
The main problem I found with the camera which was bad enough to return it to the store and pay the $40 restocking fee: the "barrel distortion" (fish-eye effect). It is hugely noticeable. It is sufficiently bad to consider images taken at the wide end of zoom unnatural, useless, and delete them. A straight vertical line, say, the corner or wall of a building, looks like an arch hanging from above. The door frame showed tilted to about 60 (!) degrees on the pictures, instead of the normal 90 degree-vertical. Only what's in the center of pictures looked correct. This problem is significant and makes pictures look unrealistic, even surrealistic. People who happened to be near the edges of the picture are recognizable, but look bizarre, as if their faces are stretched, or rather, flattened. So I found the camera was not practical for example to take a picture of a group of friends. True, the wide angle allows everyone to fit in the picture, but the picture taken is junk - people on the sides are so unnatural, it's embarrassing to show them these pictures. It is more practical to take two pictures with an average zoom with S80 or a cheap 36mm+ zoom camera and stitch them together in photoshop. I showed my pictures to a few friends, and they all exclaimed how weird or bad the pictures looked. My advice is to buy a non-wide angle compact camera instead of S80. I also learned not to trust sample pictures at a popular camera review site (dpreview).
The quality of pictures taken indoors was generally great, if the zoom was in the mid-range. I got some overexposure in the auto mode outdoors. The sky looked pale-white on the pictures, although it was blue in reality (the sun was setting behind my back and was blocked by a building, so it couldn't have caused this effect). I made the sky look right using the manual exposure mode, but at the cost of the objects on the ground looking little darker. The manual mode is very practical and gives the total control of the exposure of the picture. As I change ISO, aperture, or shutter speed, the brightness of the picture on LCD adjusts.
The video quality is definitely good. I recorded in a room with fluorescent lights in the Auto regime, and the quality was as good as outdoors. The parameters of the video file: PCM Audio, 11024Hz 88 kb/s (1 chnl); Motion JPEG video, 13847 kbs in the 640 x 480 mode. The video plays on any PC with Windows XP. The camera can zoom in during video recording, but this digital zoom results in an image that is very blocky and blurred. Playback volume coming from the camera's speaker is loud enough and can be changed. The sound is clear on a PC.
I'd say don't count on using the camera at 200 or 400 ISO. Pictures taken at 200ISO during the day had bad granulation of shady areas. That looked more like a jpeg compression artifact, although I took all my pictures at the highest quality settings. The same pictures taken with 50 or 100 ISO (with appropriate shutter speed adjustment) looked excellent without any artifacts.
Just a sidenote. My camera had two hot pixels (blue and pale white) in the CCD, which are visible on dark pictures even at 1/16 shutter speed at 100ISO, and a hot blue pixel on the LCD. One website recommended to replace a camera that has hotpixels at shutterspeeds less than 1 sec. BTW, the LCD is sufficiently good in terms of both size and resolution.
Card speed - I purchased a 133x SD card, and the camera worked very fast with it. It is possible that 66x (10MB/s) would have been fast enough. I could start taking pictures just a second after opening the front cover. When browsing pictures there is a very short delay between them, and it seemed faster than most cameras my friends use.

great s80 camera!
Strengths: size, style, canon picture quality, nice soft colors good value for the money.
Camera is solidly made, and pocketable. Not ultra small, but small enough to frequently carry around. The front metal cover shields the lens much better than other digital cameras. There is no sliding metal shield to cover the LCD screen, so a light case might still be appropriate. Overall, the S80 is a very good camera and takes great pictures.
By leonleo6 - Nov 18, 2005
Strengths: Wide-angle lens, super fast startup and cycle times, great battery life, large LCD display.
Weakness: LCD is low resolution, noisy zoom motor.
I bought this camera mainly for its wide-angle lens. Most consumer digicams do not have wide-angle. If you take lots of photos of groups of people and/or buildings, you really do need wide-angle. Lack of RAW mode is not an issue for me. The photo quality is just super for amateur use. It does bother me that Canon sold us this large LCD, but its resolution is too low to help much in manual focusing.

s80 digital camera
Strengths: great picture quality, simple to use and fairly small
Weakness: Flash a bit underpowered
Superb image quality, ability to shoot in full darkness, great range of shutter/aperture controls in automatic and manual modes, very convenient layout of control buttons, 28-100 mm fast lenses, and short charging time are the strongest points of this camera. Many of these features came from much more expensive digicams and are not available from another manufactures for this price and in such small size of the body.
By leoleonleo - Nov 18, 2005
Strengths: large LCD display, fast and responsive and many advanced features.
Weakness: None, this camera is awesome so far!
Overall I'd give this camera 5 stars and recommend it to anybody in the market for a compact digital camera. I talked a buddy at work into one and he just got back from Disneyworld where they took over 400 pictures. He is a Canon 20D owner and pretty picky about his photos and he loved the results.

Strengths: Picture quality, size, ease of use, advanced features
Weakness: exposed LCD screen
Was looking to upgrade from a 3.3 mp camera, so researched heavily before deciding on the S80. It was realeased in Oct, and I got it as soon as it was out. As others noted, couldn't find in the store, so I took a chance. Extremely glad that I did.
My work requires heavy travel and I needed something to travel with that had advanced featurs. Additionally, the wide angle lens makes it great for city pictures as well as pictures in doors. Don't have to back up for any. I feel the flash is a little bright, or at least everyone else does. To them it borders on blinding, but the pictures turn out great. Don't use the flash for anything but indoor / close up. I try to do outside and night with no flash (tri-pod for shake).
Having been an Olympus fan for over 20 years (still have my OM-2s and OM-10 system) it was hard to go to another manufacturer. After reviewing and using, the Olympus cameras just don't stack up. Also, the one feature I really like is the eye piece. Most other cameras in this MP range have done away with the eye piece. It came down to a Nikon or this one and the eye piece was one of the tie breakers (along with size).
Take a chance and order this camera, you won't be disappointed. One suggestion though, get a case. The 3rd week I had the camera, my computer bag fell and broke the LCD. Canon repaired (fantastic service), but just be careful. Also, get a bigger SD card. I use low ISO with High resolution and the 32 MB is no where near big enough.

Review of Powershot S80 Digital Camera
Strengths: The camera is small enough to fit into your pocket. The 8 mp gives excellent pictures. The camera can be used with wide angle and telephoto lenses. There is a large LCD monitor for viewing the picture
Weakness: I would like to have some sort of lock on lens cover. The terminal cover seems rather flimsy. When you open it you must be careful not break it.
I had a Cannon S45, which I liked. I purchased the S80 because it seemed like an upgrade of the S45. The S80, like the S45, is small enough to carry in my jacket pocket.
It has a retractable lens that is protected by a sliding door. Although the door can accidentally slide open, I like it because it protects the lens while the camera is in my pocket. The 8MP gives good pictures. I have read that many find the controls awkward to use. I do find this to be a problem.
When I purchased the camera, I was offered both the magnetic telephoto and magnetic wide-angle for the price of one. This was $199.00 for both. The magnetic lens is held to the camera by a small steel ring placed on the front of lens. The adhesive on the ring will not hold to the camera. If this would work it would be a great since there is no adapter, such as Cannon uses, needed. My advice buy the Cannon adapter and lens. To me both lens are useless.
When I purchased this camera, I received a small photocopy of one user manual. When I inquired about the manuals, I was told the cameras were imported from a foreign country and the manuals were not in English. I went to the Cannon web site to get the manuals and register the camera. I would suggest before purchasing the camera you check about the manuals. Do not always go by company ratings. This company was given 5 stars.

Compact SLR - Canon pulls through again!
Strengths: Many options, beautiful quality, strong body build, strong flash, compact advanced amature SLR, nice color scheme, amazing camera overall.
Weakness: Heavy for a compact camera, doesn't come with a case, flash can be too strong even at lowest setting.
The best way I can describe this camera is that it's a compact SLR. You definitely need to be a semi-pro in order to get this camera, otherwise you're simply not taking advantage of all it's full features at all.
By sydanyc - Jan 16, 2006
Strengths: Quality photos, features, size, construction
Weakness: None that I can find
This is the third Canon digital camera we've owned (the other two, an EOS Digital Rebel and a PowerShot S100 are still around), and confirms why we love Canon's so much. The camera is full of excellent features and takes a beautiful picture. It's a great size, considering all of its functionality, and it's a very sturdy camera. I'd highly recommend it to anybody wanting a high-quality photo from a camera that's more compact than a DSLR.
By kellerbr - Jan 3, 2006
Great Camera!! Canon did it again.
Strengths: Good resolution, Nice design and quality, Fast and responsive, Wide-angle zoom.
Weakness: Corner softness, No raw option.
This is one of the best quality camera available out there right now. If you looking for a compact camera, but also want to spend more for the manual control and wide angle features, this is the best option for you. In other hand, if you're professional photographer, you might not be happy with the lack of raw. I personally don't mind missing raw so I'm very happy with the camera.
By wenyong88 - Nov 10, 2005
Strengths: Great pictures
Weakness: Need to update memory cards to hold more pictures
The PS S80 is replacing our PS S30. We like the larger view screen and slightly smaller camera size. Picture quality is clear. Since it functions very similarly to the S30, we have had very little difficulty adjusting to using it.
By djzharvey1 - Jan 28, 2006
8.0 and counting!
Strengths: WOW! 8MP, many advanced features and Canon picture quality
Weakness: None...this camera is the bomb!
I can't praise this camera enough; it has so many features in common with Canon's EOS range that it places it at the top of the compact camera pile....
I've not used it much so far, but as a replacement for my S60, I know this one will be much much better...I am very happy with it!

Canon PowerShot S80
Strengths: Quality build, compact size to slip into a purse or pants pocket, excellent images, easy-to-use menus.
Weakness: None at this time
I upgraded from a Canon PowerShot S45, and it has been (and still is an excellent camera). But the image quality and the ease of use has greatly improved in the S80. It has all the features I wanted in a compact size, and yet even though i has a lot more features, someone coming from a previous S-model camera will find it easy to use the menus because this camera improves on the old rather than heading in a totally different direction. It improves on what went before (with the exception of no raw format which I didn’t use on my S45), and since what went before was really good, I think that’s doing it right. I highly recommend this camera.
By missou - Nov 22, 2005
Originally impressed, but cannon let me down the first time...
Strengths: Image quality, speed, functionality, could handle just about anything I could throw at it.
Weakness: My camera did not like cold weather.
Let me first start off by saying that I have been taking 35mm shots with Olympus and Nikonos cameras for decades. I had been patiently waiting for over a year to find a release that contained very specific criteria… a compact camera that could take pictures close to that of a high end 35mm camera in a digital format. I lead an active lifestyle and falling face first into an SLR is not my idea of fun. Enter the S80. I chose it because it provided me with the flexibility of a compact camera, with the resolution I required to make larger prints, and had many programmable and manual functions. It even had the option to add an underwater housing (great if you dive!). All checks marked off…
I read the manual cover to cover, customized all its settings to my liking (fantastic functionality!), and headed to Colorado for a skiing trip. This camera took great shots. The color enhancement capabilities were like having a full set of filters. The program modes were great. Even the auto mode shots were impressive. Given all this, I did not even miss the RAW setting that many are disgruntled about (Guys, it’s a compact camera). I thought I had died and gone to heaven.
Two things… If you do buy this camera you will need another battery and at least a 1GB card.
Now the bad news… Out of the box, the Auto Exposure Bracketing mode took only two of the three pictures it was supposed to take; the under and over exposed, but missed the original shot. After exposure to the temps of skiing at 11,250 ft (20 degrees), other things started to go wrong. Let me qualify by saying that this camera was kept in a lined bag, in my pocket and was never exposed to any shocks, jars, water, ice, snow, etc (ie: I did not fall). However, after day 2, the zoom stopped working on the video shot mode and the “A/V output” turned from a resilient color display to a distorted black and white display; which made it hard to view the photos nightly on the TV with my fellow travelers.
Unfortunately after 150 shots and around 30 videos I sent it back for a refund to ponder my decision. I don't know how to score this. If it worked, it would be great, so I'll give it 4 instead 5 of stars.
I hope you all have better luck with yours than I did with mine. Somebody said “Go Nikon P1”, but I’m not sure yet. I’ll have to keep searching, but very well may find myself back at the S80. Any recommendations on a replacement would be appreciated.

Canon PowerShot S80
Strengths: 8.0 Mega Pixels, 28mm wide angle lens (which zooms to 100mm) , 2.5 inch LCD monitor , retractable lens with built in lens cover
Weakness: Remembering what functions each button performs
The Canon PowerShot S80 takes fabulous pictures. I find many of my photographs need little or no color adjustment with my photo software program. I find I very seldom look through the viewfinder. I mostly use the 2.5 inch LCD monitor to take my photos. The 2.5 inch monitor makes taking photos easy. I love shooting in “MY Colors Mode.” You can make all colors more vivid. A normal blue sky can become a vivid blue sky. You can set the camera to save two images in “MY Colors Mode,” the original and the altered vivid photo. Sometimes I disliked the altered photo. Like most cameras, it takes a little time to remember all the functions of each button. You will find the Powershot S80 comes with many functions that you may seldom or never use. It is easy to operate if you are a novice (AUTO mode), and has plenty of feature for advanced users. I would recommend the Powershot S80 as a great all purpose camera. It has high resolution and a great wide angle lens.
By brubu2j - Feb 26, 2006
Weakness: No RAW option.
My research led me to this as the best possible mid-range camera. It's easy to use, but has almost all of the features, and in ratio to the price, you can't do much better. It's like having a much more expensive EOS model, at a fraction of the cost. You can start using this seconds out of the box, and the position of the side menu wheel is a wonderful touch. It's a little heavy and bulky, but will still fit in a pocket nicely. Only bad thing is that it doesn't output photos in RAW format. I have absolutely no idea why. If they did that, it'd be absolutely perfect.
By fate7 - Jan 6, 2006
Strengths: Wide angle lens. Image quality. Speed.
I loved this camera, and had nothing negative to say about it. Until, it up and failed, with an e18 error. The lens is neither fully in or out, and it no longer wants to play.
Now we get to see what their warrany support is like.
By jb747 - Mar 10, 2006
Goes Underwater is the only Plus for me
Strengths: Underwater mode & you can video underwater
Weakness: Zoom - The many modes you have to go through and then the picture that you wanted captured is gone.
I have a 5 year old Olympus camera that is slow but takes great pictures. I upgraded to this one b/c of the underwater mode and my husband & I started diving and wanted to take pictures so we found that Canon is one of the few that they make housings for so it can go underwater. The zoom is terrible. My husband's 4.0 mp Kodak has a lot better zoom and almost the same quality in pictures, if not better colors. You spend so much time flipping through the modes you can choose from, and it will switch out of that mode in an instant. Sometimes pictures look better on the underwater mode than the mode it's for or even the landscape mode. I found it to be very off balance for all the modes with the perspectives of the colors it brought out. Again, the zoom is terrible. It will take a great picture if you are up close and in the correct mode for exactly what you are taking.
By DanielleS327 - May 31, 2007
Thumb Wheel is a design flaw
Strengths: Excellent Picture Quality
Weakness: Thumb wheel is too easy to inadvertantly spin
The photo quality is excellent. The image speed and functions are great. However, if not shooting in auto mode, the thumb wheel spins too easily. My wife was trying to shoot in "kids and pets" mode, and the pictures were horrible. It turned out that she inadvertantly rolled the scroll wheel to nighttime shooting, which must have a slower shutter speed.
There should be some form of lock on the scroll wheel to prevent this.

Weakness: Poor quality and poor workmanship
Save your money and your piece of mind - do not buy Canon. The product failed after four weeks and poor customer service from Canon; found the customer service representatives to be arrogant. Would not purchase a Canon product in the future.

Canon PowerShot S80: Outstanding results in a compact take anywhere camera.
Strengths: 28mm wide angle, 2-1/2" LCD, Outstanding pictures, outstanding color rendition, ease of use, Rugged and good looking.
Weakness: Large hands can easily cover flash window or move the front lens cover shutting camera down. Rear controls are small and a bit crowded.
8.0 megapixel will give superior results only when coupled with superior optics.
The S80 has both and rivals the results of bulky digital SLRs. It is a take anywhere camera. The large 2-1/2" LCD is a pleasure to use and the small viewfinder is adequate. 8-1/2" x 11" enlargements are tack sharp with excellent
contrast and color fidelity. I installed a 1GB memory card which translates to
290 photos at the highest resolution. Care has to be given as to how to hold this
compact without obstructing the flash or moving a setting and it is very easy to nudge the front lens cover and thereby shut the camera down. The price is a bit
high but I bought mine for $400.00 which when compared with other high end
compacts is not much of a premium. Indoor flash illumination is good to about 15 feet. Focusing is fast and the shutter lag time is short. I am quite satisfied
with the S80.

Excellent photos when it 's in focus
Strengths: This camera takes incredible photos. They are as good or better than may EOS (film) Rebel II
Weakness: This camera has trouble focusing on objects that lack strong contrast.
In general this camera is perfect for what I bought if for - traveling and taking landscape photos. It's small and it takes incredibly sharp and wide (28mm equivalent) pictures. On the down side, it's ridiculously complicated to use and it has trouble focusing on objects that lack strong contrast. At first I though it was the particular unit I purchased, but the manual includes a half page on focusing problems, so I assume it’s just a characteristic of this model. Regardless, I’d still buy it for the picture quality and the size.

best digital compact on the market
Strengths: all around performance. easy to use. ability to customize. boot up time is the best i've experienced (on to first shot)
Weakness: none. i've seen people gripe about it's size, but you can't find any other compact digital on the market that performs as well in all aspects. so in this case, a little bigger is better.
my wife loves using it because its so simple and quick. i love using it because i can customize it for what i'm doing. awesome camera. i recomend it to anyone who wants the best.

Canon PowerShot S80: Outstanding results in a compact take anywhere camera.
Strengths: Superior quality photographs, 8 megapixels, 28mm wide angle to 100mm telephoto, 2" x 1-1/2" LCD, long battery life, quick recycle time, pocketable size.
Weakness: None worth mentioning.
The Canon PowerShot S80 gives results that equal or exceed a digital SLR in a
small compact camera that can be taken anywhere. A true wide angle 28mm
to a moderate 100mm telephoto. The camera is easy to use and the big 2" LCD
works well outdoors. I bought a 1 GB memory card that will give me 290 pictures in the camera's highest resolution. For photographers with large hands and shooting indoors be careful not to block or interfere with the flash window with your left hand! The compact size is a great plus as this is a camera to be taken anywhere--no more missed photo opportunities. It wasn't long ago that
eight megapixels were found only in SLRs costing around $1000.00 now for less than half you can get the S80.

Outstanding results and easy to use.
Strengths: 8 megapixel resolution, 28mm to 100mm zoom. Large LCD display, long battery life, quick recycle time, will fit in a shirt pocket, take anywhere camera.
Weakness: Nothing worth mentioning!
The Canon PowerShot S80 is an outstanding serious compact camera that is small enough to be taken anywhere and will give results that will equal or exceed
a digital SLR. The big LCD (2" x 1-1/2") is a pleasure to use. The 28mm wide
angle to 100mm telephoto will handle most photographic situations. Long battery
life and quick recycling between shots make this camera tops. I bought a 1 GB
memory card that will take 290 pictures when the camera is set to it's highest
resolution. Canon has done it's homework with the S80 and it's compact size lets you take it anywhere as opposed to larger and bulkier cameras.

Canon's PowerShot line of digital cameras have been perennial favorites with our readers, and the Canon S80 seems destined for similar status. This is an exceptionally full-featured digital camera, with all the bells and whistles apart from a flash hot shoe, a tilt/swivel LCD, and perhaps an internal neutral density filter.
