21 Shooting Modes to capture every situation, including Special Scene Modes and My Colors Mode for customization while shooting.
With the PowerShot S80, you can count on exact focus no matter where your subject is in the frame. You've got Shooting Modes including the Special Scene Mode that give you breathtaking, exhilarating pictures even when shooting conditions are tough. And you can both customize color reproduction and "touch up" color while you're shooting! Lighten skin tones, make the sky a more vivid blue, emphasize a single color and much more, all in real time as you monitor results on the LCD screen.
Improved Movie Mode with an option of 30 fps VGA or XGA mode for high-quality still frame printing.
PowerShot S80 offers a movie recording capability that's new to digital cameras: XGA (Large) size, which is ideal for computer viewing. XGA mode records 1024 x 768 pixels (15 fps) - about twice the data of VGA - for extremely high quality films. Since PowerShot S80 gives you the option of taking any frame from your recorded movie and printing it on a single sheet (creating a still frame print), this high image quality for movies is a useful advantage.
