The Canon PowerShot A80 is a compact digital camera released by Canon in 2003.
The most notable characteristic of this camera is the low-noise sensor, with 4 megapixels on a generous 1/1.8". Image quality was high for its time. Its main failings were its tiny 1.8" LCD display and slow operation. It uses CompactFlash and is powered by 4x AA batteries.
