Canon’s PowerShot S80, the new flagship of Canon’s S-series, incorporates 8 megapixels for shooting still images and a movie mode that records an impressive 1024 x 768 pixels. It replaces the S70 with more resolution, a bigger LCD screen, revamped menus, a different body design and of course, those XGA movie capabilities. The XGA video size captures about 2.5x more data per frame than the regular VGA movie modes. The Canon PowerShot S80 has a 3.6x optical zoom lens and a 2.5-inch LCD screen. The hybrid S80 was announced in August 2005 and was available for the holiday shopping season with an original retail price at $549, but it’s been spotted for just $399 already..
