Just what I needed to use on eBay and everywhere else.

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. The LCD display is large enough with good resolution to hand the camera to others in place of a printout to view images. The size, weight and form fit comfortably in the hand, but not so large it won't fit in the pocket.
Excerpt: I purchased the A720 last winter as an upgrade to the 5mp camera I already had and am thrilled with it's capabilities. The best part is the ability to purchase both a wide angle lens and a telephoto lens, as well as a set of filters online which makes it as close to an SLR digital you can get without actually shelling out the $800+ for one. The original camera + filters + lens + 2 GB SD card + carrying case ran less than $450.
Excerpt: I bought my camera to take on an animal safari trip to Kenya. It took beautiful pictures and was easy to use. I was able to zoom sufficiently and get great animal shots. I wanted a camera that would take good pictures and be very easy to use. This camera filled the bill.
Excerpt: I bought a Canon Powershot A720 IS last may and it has performed great until now. It is having issues and I called Canon and they are going to fix it. I sincerely suggest you keep your receipts with your larger (over !00) purchases. I had to send a copy of my receipt of purchase with the camera to keep it in warranty even though I had mailed the warranty card. Seems warranty cards are worthless!!!! Still a good camera.
The Powershot A720 IS is great for an amateur as well as a pro.

Excerpt: I LOVE this camera. It is super easy to use, but also takes great pictures. By playing with it and exploring all its options, I have also found that it has made me a better photographer. It's very portable-I carry it everywhere with me and I've gotten some fantastic pictures. This is a high quality, easy-to-use camera that is worth every penny.
Excerpt: The Canon A720IS was sent as a replacement for the A520IS I reviewed previously. I love the camera and am willing to tolerate its few imperfections: (1) Hanging a single-eyelet camera around your neck means it swings around with every movement; how much could it have cost to install a second one?
Excerpt: I purchased this camera for 199 from Dell in Dec. 07, after lots of research. I definitely picked the right one. The clarity of the photos is outstanding, it's a simple camera with many features. Recently, I had need to copies of some old family photos to a relative. My scanner was broken, so I used the macro setting, laid the photo on my desktop, got the lighting over the photo just right, and moved in.
Excerpt: I was given this camera for Christmas by my husband. We had our first baby on December 27th, and I have used this camera daily since then. It is by far the best camera for the price. Other cameras we looked at for the same price didn't have half of the features ours does. I couldn't be happier and I will tell everyone.
Excerpt: I am a Nikon DSLR user but when looking for a simple but quality point-and-shoot camera, the Canon A720 IS fit the bill. This camera is small but not too compact yet offers quality features. The photo this camera produces are quite nice. At 8 megapixels, you certainly have enough to get nice size photos. However, megapixels can be overrated when optics are a real key. The optics of this Canon camera are very good.
