Cost Performace

This camera is the advanced replacement to S70 Canon. The new S80 has eight megapixel compact camera with the ample range of manual controls and prosumer appeal. S80 is more compact and lighter in weight than S70; still it packs much wider viewing angle LCD monitor, control wheel, XGA video capture(15fps). Its a fantastic camera and enjoys by the people of almost all the ages. I use this camera in all the family occasions.
