Here we are comparing ZS1 and S80, two Compact cameras from Panasonic and Nikon. Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS1 is a Small Sensor Superzoom class camera and Nikon Coolpix S80 is a Ultracompact class camera.
Panasonic ZS1 was introduced to market in May 2009 and Nikon S80 was launched in September 2010. There is 16 months difference between ZS1 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 ZS1 and Nikon S80 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Panasonic ZS1 and Nikon S80 compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
