Canon Powershot A80

The A80 is a lovely camera, but must be watched outside since it tends to overexpose on bright sunny days. A good rule of thumb is to use a minus ev setting of 2/3 when you have lots of bright highlights. Flash performance indoors is excellent, rendering great skin tones. One note of interest: The ISO ratings are very conservative with ISO 50 being much more like 100 and 400, more like 800. Noise is very low (let me rephrase that now that I have the 20D: "reasonable") at higher ISOs.
I've put together a slide program "My Little Friend" as a tribute to my beloved "stealthcam". You can download the zipped file here: http://isabelcutler.com/MyLittleFriend.zip



Update: I've just recently started using the "Sound Memo" feature of the camera to put backgrounds behind some of my images. I find the sound quality quite good. Sadly, the quality of the same feature in my new A610 isn't as good as that of the A80. Much more hiss. Here's an example of taking one of the Sound Memo recordings and putting it (with html) in the captions area of a picture: http://www.pbase.com/isabel95/image/48811137
