  • Summary: The product is good but the timing between every shot is very slow and sometimes disgusting.

A disappointment; has some +'s, but doesn't take great pics, and doesn't hold up either.

  • Summary: The 6x digital zoom is nice, and the zoom is fast and easy to use with precision. The camera has a very quick startup speed, which makes it easy to capture things like birds which won't sit still for you. The menu and user-interface are very easy to use, and it is very easy to view pictures. The screen is huge and very clear. This camera loses, though, when it comes to the quality of photos.

Great camera, but bad zoom seals are a major flaw

Jim S, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this camera for over 3 weeks, but have only used it for about half that time, as it's been in the shop for repair. I got it to use when I don't want to (or can't) use my big camera (a 20D), and I have enjoyed almost every aspect of it. I say "almost" because I can't recommend it, despite its great pictures, its ease of use, and its excellent controls.

great zoom and nice features spoiled by slow flash

D. Frane, Amazon

  • Summary: The fellow who said the flash recycling on the A700 is "horrible" was correct. I bought this camera to replace a Canon S500 because it focused too slowly. The A700 focuses and shoots quickly- but only if you are NOT using the flash. If you use the flash you have to wait a very long time between shots- and that's with brand new batteries. It was unbelievably slow- slower than the camera I bought it to replace. I ended up returning the A700 and buying an A620.

Wenn das Blitz - Problem nicht wäre ....

K. Bolte, Amazon
13 August 2006
  • Summary: ... ja dann wäre das wohl die fast perfekte Kamera in diesem Preis-Segment. Aber leider braucht die Kamera geschlagene 7 (sieben!) Sekunden nach einem Bild mit Blitz, bis man das nächste Photo machen kann (vergleiche auch Daten auf [...] Das ist absolut nicht akzeptabel und hat uns zur Rückgabe der Kamera bewogen. Das hat unsere 3 Jahre alte Powershot A70 schneller hinbekommen und ist deshalb noch unverständlicher.
