Camera Review: Canon PowerShot A710 IS

8 February 2008
  • Excerpt: It's funny how time flies. It seems like only yesterday we were reviewing the Canon PowerShot A700, which Canon announced at the PMA 2006 trade show this past March. Here it is October and Canon already has a new model in their popular A series to replace it, the PowerShot A710 IS.

22 January 2008
  • Conclusion: Canon's A series PowerShots get better with each generation, and - thanks to the inclusion of extensive photographic control and technologies such as DIGIC II and image stabilization has lifted cameras like the A710 IS firmly out of the 'entry level' bracket they originally occupied.
  • Pros: Good resolution, Clean and detailed results across the frame and zoom range, Useful 35-210mm equiv. 6x zoom lens, Effective image stabilization, Fairly light noise reduction means less fine detail is lost at higher ISO settings (though see below), Fast, reliable focus, Reliable exposure and white...
  • Cons: Highlight clipping and occasional over-exposure in bright, contrasty conditions, Combined card / battery compartment can make changing cards without losing the batteries fiddly, Zoom is a bit jumpy (not enough steps between 35 and 210mm), No dedicated button for ISO and no custom modes / shortcut...

  • Excerpt: The PowerShot A710 IS ($399) has landed at the top of Canon's A-series lineup. The A710 is based on the A700 (surprise surprise), with its two big new features being optical image stabilization and a higher resolution sensor.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, low noise through ISO 200, Optical image stabilization, More zoom than on most cameras in this class, Large 2.5" LCD, visible in low light (though see issue below), Very good performance, Full manual controls, AF-assist lamp, good low light focusing, Good movie and contin...
  • Cons: Redeye, LCD resolution isn't great, Can only record about 8 minutes of VGA video due to 1GB file size limit, Plastic tripod mount, Included 16MB memory card is too small; bundling some rechargeable batteries would've been a nice touch
