View Full Version : Canon Powershot A80 Japan vs. China

Is there a technical difference between the camera made in Japan vs China?
It seems that the price drop for this camera in the past few days is precipitated by the China camera being the only one available in my area(Minnesota)
The Canon rep I spoke with today in person told me point blank that he was unaware of the China camera and he was using a Japan demo model......however, only the China camera was available in the store for purchase...Best Buy also only has the China cameras.
What's up with this?

If you are interested I just bought a Japanese A80 at Wolf Camera in Nashville ,Tn. today. After my research I was surprised to get the Japanese model, several sites suggested all new A80's were Chinese.
