hey guys

i'm in the market for digital camera and like the look of the
Powershot range from Canon.

i've played with the A70 and was impressed, and believe the A75 is
even better.
but with prices coming down i'm now considering the 4MP range and have
been looking at teh A80 and A85

firstly, whats the difference between the A80 or A85? the A85 doesn't
appear to have the detachable LCD screen which i would value

secondly, would ppl recommend the A80 or A85? (or even the A75)

any advice would be very helpful

TIA

From what we have heard the A85 is the succesor to the A75, so no articulated LCD. I haven't heard of a replacement for the A80. Any of the A series will serve you well.

If you can, try them out at your local camera store to see which catches your fancy and budget. Or you might discover something else that you like even better.

The A85 is NOT an A80 evolution but an A75 evolution..
The A80 is better than the A85..
The A80 has a bigger CCD sensor that means less noise and better quality pictures..
Also the A75 have less noise than the A85 because they have the same ccd..
If you want an advice, choose the A75 or the A80..
The A80 have 0,8 more MPx and a detachable lcd, the A75 have some new shooting programs and a bigger and better quality lcd..
I have the A75 and I'm very satisfied, look at www.zoodany.it to see (and vote, if you want) some of my pics and have an idea of its quality..
