Here we are comparing FX48 and S80, two Compact cameras from Panasonic and Nikon. Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX48 is a Small Sensor Compact class camera and Nikon Coolpix S80 is a Ultracompact class camera.
Panasonic FX48 was introduced to market in January 2009 and Nikon S80 was launched in September 2010. There is 19 months difference between FX48 and S80 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger S80, especially in sensor tech.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Panasonic FX48 and Nikon S80 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
