  • Conclusion: Whereas virtually ever other Ixus/ELPH camera I've reviewed over the last few years has failed, in some way, to produce image quality that quite lived up to the promise of such attractive and luxurious external design and construction, the SD 700 IS really does, for the most part, deliver the goods.
  • Pros: Good resolution, excellent edge-to-edge sharpness, 4x zoom range, Very clean results at lower ISO settings, perfectly usable up to ISO 400, Reliable exposure system, Very fast and accurate focus, Very responsive, Excellent user interface, easy to use, Image stabilization, Superb build quality, De...
  • Cons: AiAF focus a bit unpredictable - turn it off, Battery life when using LCD not fantastic, Very little manual control, ISO 800 noisy (low noise reduction means there is detail, however), Finish very susceptible to marks and scratches, Still no exposure information for shutter speeds over 1/60 sec, ...

  • Excerpt: The Canon SD700 IS is a little bit larger than other Canon SD (Ixus) models. It is equipped with build-in flash and optical viewfinder (only 79% accuracy) at that top of the back; the buttons are located on the right side of the LCD.

  • Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH ($499) isn't just another ultra-compact camera: it also features a 4X zoom lens (versus the 3X models usually found on such cameras) and an optical image stabilization system (which will give you sharper photos).
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, low noise through ISO 200 (but see issues below), Optical image stabilization, More zoom power than your typical ultra-compact (4X vs 3X), Compact, super stylish metal body, Large, sharp 2.5" LCD display; good low light visibility, Has an optical viewfinder (a rarity in t...
  • Cons: Some corner softness and vignetting; redeye is a big problem, Current zoom setting not shown on LCD; no live histogram either, Flash is less powerful than on SD550, Can only record about 8 minutes of VGA video due to 1GB file size limit, More manual controls would be nice, Can't swap memory cards...
