Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent quality photos. Takes well in low lighting. Automatic mode very easy and pleasing to use. Attractive.
Bad points:
As it is an older model, it could be better value for money, but I'm very impressed by the quality of photos so would say it is worth purchasing.

Good points:
Excellent photographs in a very small package at a low price.
Bad points:
I accidentally dropped my first one and it stopped working - so not very robust. But I liked it so much I immediately bought another..

Gordon, Bloxworth, Wareham Nothing

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Have no idea, as Tesco advertised the camera on their site, took the order along with extra storage card, gave me a delivery date then contacted me later to say they don't have the goods. So no camera.
Bad points:
Who knows, just tell Tesco not to sell things they haven't got.

Distinctively IXUS.

Colours of IXUS
Available in four colours – Classic Silver, Candy Pink, Caramel and Chocolate – the Digital IXUS 80 IS is a must-have camera. The colours and curves are enhanced by pure aluminium bodywork.

8.0 Megapixels
An 8.0 Megapixel sensor captures images in plenty of detail for creative trimming and large size prints.

3x optical Image Stabilizer lens
Advanced Ultra-High Refractive Index Aspherical (UA) lens technology from Canon fits a 3x optical zoom lens into the compact form of the Digital IXUS 80 IS. An optical Image Stabilizer (IS), helps you capture blur-free images in low-light and when shooting with the zoom.

Motion Detection Technology
There’s no need to worry about blur with Motion Detection Technology. This clever feature detects camera shake and subject movement, and then adjusts ISO to combat blur while maximising image quality.

Face Detection Technology
Face Detection Technology ensures superb people shots by automatically setting optimum focus, exposure, flash and white balance. Face Select and Track lets you choose and track your primary subject, so you never lose a special face in the crowd.

Red-Eye Correction
Set to automatically remove red-eye as you shoot or during playback mode, Red-Eye Correction quickly and easily removes red-eye in camera, making natural-looking eyes easy to achieve.

DIGIC III and iSAPS
Canon’s DIGIC III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction for sharper, clearer images. iSAPS technology uses shooting scene data to optimise camera settings even before a shot is taken.

2.5" PureColor LCD II
A high resolution 2.5" PureColor LCD II screen gives an exceptionally wide viewing angle, perfect for sharing your photos with a group, plus impressive colour contrast, keeping the screen visible under bright light. An optical viewfinder (OVF) gives you additional flexibility.

Shooting Modes and My Colors
18 shooting modes include Sunset, Beach and Fireworks Special Scene modes, which optimise camera settings for the easy capture of popular subjects. My Colors in-camera photo effects can be applied during or after shooting.

Movie Options
Movie modes include Long Play (LP) for VGA (30fps) clips that use half the normal memory card space. Capture a gradual scene like a sunrise or blooming flowers, for accelerated playback with Time Lapse movie.
