Excerpt: I've owned around 10 digital cameras so far (one was an slr) and the Pro70 is, without a doubt, my favourite of the lot! I purchased a new/unused example 6 months ago that had been hidden away, unopened for 6 years. When I first realized that it had a minimum (!) shutter speed of 1/180th sec...
Excerpt: The Powershot Pro 70 is an interesting camera - it's got 2 CF card slots, which can allow for an extraordinary number of pictures to be taken. The rechargeable battery seems to last sufficiently, and the optics are nice and sharp. The ability to use EX-series speedlights with E-TTL is a great bonus.
Excerpt: Having owned one for nearly a year and being very happy with it I tried out a 3-mp canon s30 for a while. Well, I'm back to the pro70, the images just look more natural and have a more accurate color balance. The lens is as good as it gets on a consumer digicam.
Excerpt: Very good quality images, sometimes a lag in taking a shot immediately after previous one. No flash incorporated, but most compact camera flash's are only just up to the job of a few metres. The camera is very robust and has a real quality feel.
Excerpt: Exellent picture quality for a 1.5 megapixel camera. Great lens and great construction. Problems: Very slow in everything. Shutter lag time, zoom lag time, image write lag time, automatic focus lag time. Burst mode only works with low res setting which produce poor picture quality.
Excerpt: I have owned two of these cameras. The first one I used for Real Estate photography, producing 6000 excellent images for the company I was working for. I sold the first one because that Real Estate company went out of business. I bought the second one hoping to use it for event photography.
Excerpt: Most of the good and bad points have been covered; I'll be brief. Those considering this camera should read Phil Askey's full review. As others have said, the image quality of this camera is excellent. Even at "only" 1536x1024, you get a very high quality image.
Excerpt: I particularly like this camera for its excellent picture quality, superbly natural colour, true 28mm wide angle lens (with no distortion anywhere in the zoom range) and 3:2 aspect ratio. The twin compact flash slots are useful too, allowing greater storage capacity and very quick card 'changes'.
Excerpt: the best camera i've seen until today (9/17/99) in my opinion the better choice, instead of 2MP cameras like the olympus c2000n the nikon 950 (no real 2mp too) or the sony, that only works with that sony typical "memory sticks " (urghhh) Problems: The "poor" macro, and i'am missing the possibility...
