Summary: Pros: (1) Amazing 6x zoom lens. All other cameras have 4x or less. (2) Lots of different settings so it's good for beginners that don't know how to use a camera and just want to point and shoot all the way up to more advanced users. (3) Excellent video camera abilities.
Summary: Overall, I really like my A700. I took the camera on a trip to Italy and was extremely pleased with the performance, shooting 95% on automatic. After spending considerable time researching available cameras, it replaced my Powershot S40, as I wanted to upgrade to the 6MP and the 6x zoom.
Summary: We are very happy with the product exept that when we took it to Mexico the lenses on the inside of the camera kept fogging up. We had another canon digital camera and this did not happen. I had read a review earlier about problems with the seels on this model and ours has done the same thing.
Summary: I "loved" this camera till it broke. I take VERY good care of all of my camera and the camera was never dropped or even a small scratch. But i bought this camera brand new in June and it broke just the other day. I sent it in for warranty and i will see what they say.
Summary: I've blown 1000 + shots through the A 700 since buying in Jun. I've used from my home in Long Beach, CA to Cranbrook, British Columbia and back. I was looking for a camera with a lense greater than 3X, but not as great as 10X, as the camera had to fit easily in a ziplock sandwich bag, and into a...
Summary: I bought this camera so I that I wouldn't have to carry my Rebel XT everywhere with me. I am very happy with the quality of the pictures. They still somehow do have the look of a cheaper digital camera. I'm not sure what exactly it is, slightly higher JPG compression, or just more noise.
Summary: I'm satisfied with this camera except for three things. First, ISO 400 and 800 has too much noise. Especially ISO 800 is almost unusable. I thought my camera was defective and returned it and received replacement. But it has same problem. I have Canon XT which works beautifully even with ISO 1600.
