    How good is the video feature on the Canon A70 and is the A80 likely to be
    better???

    The A-70 lets you take 30 second video clips at 640x480, and clips of
    indefinite length of lower resolutions (320x240 0r 160x120). Video has
    sound. The A-80 will not allow the hi res video, only the two lower
    resolutions, so its video is in fact a step backward.

    why does Canon do this?
    didn't they do the same thing with the Canon S230 and S400?

    Does someone know why higher level/resolution cameras from Canon can't take
    movies in 640x480? I own a S50, it makes great pictures, but I'd really like
    to know why its maximum resolution is only 320x240x15fps..

    The Canon will not let you take infinite lengths....regardless of the
    resolution, it will stop after 3 minutes of video...

    3 minutes of some videos can seem like an eternity :)
