If you are a first-time user, the camera has basics such as Auto Focus and Auto Mode so you can start simply and view your results immediately. If you already have some digital knowledge, the PowerShot A80’s extensive array of advanced features and accessories are there to challenge you.
4.0 Megapixel CCD
With its 4.0 Megapixels, the PowerShot A80 can create high-resolution images. Every image you take will be reproduced as clearly as when you shot it, whether you are printing postcard or A3 size.
High-resolution 3x Optical Zoom
To achieve a sharp and clear image, the PowerShot A80 has a 3x optical zoom, ideal for shooting everything from landscapes to portraits. Its approximately 11x combined digital and optical zoom then allows you to get even closer.
12 shooting modes plus 2 custom settings
For increased creativity and photographic control, the PowerShot A80 has an easy-to-use Mode Dial with 12 shooting modes such as Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Movie and full manual modes. Two custom settings allow a combination of your preferred modes to be saved.
9-Point Artificial Intelligent Auto Focus (AiAF)
The PowerShot A80 can automatically detect your subject, even if it’s off-centre in the frame. It chooses the best focus point from nine fixed focusing areas across your shooting scene so the final image will be accurate and sharp.
Unique in its class, the PowerShot A80 has a vari-angle LCD that can be twisted in different directions to free you from shooting constraints. It’s ideal for shots that require tricky positioning.

Canon Card Photo Printers CP-200 or CP-300 are ideal for postcard size photos, or for A4 direct prints Canon Bubble Jet Direct printers are perfect.
