Just what I needed to use on eBay and everywhere else.
9 June 2013
Summary: The neighbor had the same camera, so I knew what I wanted when I went shopping. I bought this camera because I needed a digital camera with removable media card (SD card), a very close-up lens, and a reasonable telephoto lens.
Summary: I bought this camera because I had an older model and I read reviews about the 5 top cameras that best took close up pictures. I am going to start selling on Ebay, and wanted a camera that would take great pictures, and that's what I got with this camera. Love it! Linda Crum
Summary: Unfortunately, the battery compartment malfunctioned. Maybe my fault ? Duct tape didn't work. Tape with linear fiber did. I'm going to try plastic ties next. This is my third and last Cannon. Their repair charges equal the price of the Cannon I purchased via EBay. However, I've learned mylesson.
THIS IS THE DIGITAL CAMERA THAT CAN DO EVERYTHING, AND DOES DO EVERYTHING

Summary: This is the best camera that we have ever bought . It does everything that the manufacturer said that it would do . It is light weight , easy to carry , and , you can put it in your pocket if you want to , while at the same time , it is not so small that if you put it down you have to hunt for it .
Summary: This was my second A-720. I purchased it used. As an avid amateur photographer I appreciate the manual controls for those unique shooting situations. However, its fairly quick automatic functions make it great for family snapshots too.
Hubby's condition requires familiarity - we bought a 2nd A720

Summary: We've enjoyed the auto aspect of this camera. Photos are of decent quality, with good shots of dogs at play and even the macro feature has worked well. What we haven't enjoyed is the sticking shutter cover which can occur in some Powershot models whether carried in a case or a large pocket.
Still one of the best point and shoot cameras in terms of convenience.

Summary: If you want a great point and shoot camera, for the Canon brand, the powershot a720 is my top pick for 3 reasons. 1. I hated the newer cameras because you can't just walk into most surronding stores and find a already recharged or correct brand ion battery.
Summary: As good or better than I expected. Menu is not as straightforward as some others, but easy to learn. Great lens, stabilization works well, color quality is very good. Small enough for my hand but still easy to grip and much easier to pack than a super-zoom (which it almost is).
