Canon IXUS 80IS reviews

For so long time waiting for this opportunity to buy my own digiCam (^_^) or a CyberShot mobile... thinking for so many months... then finally I decided to buy a digicam since picture taking are one of my hobbies...
I went to three malls here in Davao namely Victoria Plaza, Gaisano Mall, and Shoe Mart (SM)
...having a hard time deciding between Cybershot Sony or Canon... hmmm san nga bah sa dalawa ang maganda? grrr I wouldn't buy if I can't decide... until one time I heard from so many person I go along with "maganda gyud canon noh!..." etc... all I can hear was Canon.. even my officemate Eric told me "Canon is the best"... eto ang specs...

    I would consider this a birthday gift for myself (^_^)
    tagal ko maka decide noh! well better late than never.

    If you look into my eyes
    will you see my love for you?
    If you look at my lips
    will you know it's meant for you?

    Everything happens for reasons...
    Every moment has its own seasons...

    The right time will come,
    we will be together for eternity,
    The right moment will come
    our bond shall be filled with God's Blessings and Security.
