Canon S80 - 8 Megapixels and DIGIC II|
With a sensor that includes a massive 8.0 Megapixels, the Powershot S80 camera produces images for detailed A3+ size prints, and gives photographers more freedom to crop images. Canon’s advanced image processor, DIGIC II, has been incorporated to increase the camera’s speed and responsiveness, while also improving image quality. Auto focus speeds are now up to 20% faster, and focusing performance in low light has improved by around 1 stop, offering better control in dim conditions. DIGIC II drives a 1.8 frames per second continuous shooting speed, and supports 9-point AiAF for fast, accurate focusing even when subjects are not centred. FlexiZone AF/AE allows free scrolling anywhere within the frame's auto focus area to select the desired subject, for which exposure is weighted accordingly. Manual focus selection is also possible. Hi-Speed USB 2.0 compatibility offers faster communication with computers, speeding up file transfers.
Canon S80 camera - My Colors
My Colors, located on the mode dial, allows the expansion of creativity in digital photography. Special effects, such as Color Swap or Custom Colors, which allows users to select their preferred colour balance for any given shot, can be performed in-camera and viewed on the LCD while shooting stills and movies. These effects could previously only be achieved using PC software after shooting.
