Excerpt: I bought this cam as soon as Canon released it, end 2006, for 300Eur, and took 7,000 photos so far. I had great expectations but I am somewhat disappointed as, though it has great capabilities it also suffers from real flaws.
Summary: I really, really wanted to like this camera. In many ways, it's wonderful - a great, long zoom lens, manual controls, and a nice form factor. My main issue is with the LCD display - it's very difficult to see when you're outdoors. Indoors, it's plenty bright.
Summary: I ordered this camera the first of December but didn't have a chance to really work with it until around the 15th. As a amatuer photographer I wanted the A710 as a companion to my DSLR and to carry in my purse for all occasions.
Summary: After seeing 2 reviews about the Canon 710 gobbling batteries, I had to set the record straight. With a pair of inexpensive X1 rechargeable batteries, my 710 took about 400 shots without recharging, which amazed me. (Regular batteries die quickly with a digital camera.
Summary: Nicht nur, daß die Kamera lange zum Speichern der Bilder benötigt, sie kann auch währenddessen nichts weiter tun. Genauso beim Nachladen des Blitzkondensators: Die Kamera ist für Sekunden blockiert. Da muß man Geduld mitbringen. Fernsteuern vom PC läßt sie sich auch nicht.
Conclusion: Se vc quer uma câmera para fotografar algo que não está em movimento como prédios, flores, paisagens, etc, a A710 vale a pena. Já eventos como danças, festas, esportes... esqueça esta câmera !
