  • Excerpt: I've had the Canon IXUS 800 IS for 2 weeks now and I love it. However, there is 1 thing that really disappoints me: the audio in the movies. It's simply awful. Lots of noise, very poor sensitivity. Coming from an Canon IXUS 4, I was bitterly surprised at seeing how this latter outperform the Canon IXUS 800 in this respect. A friend of mine who has also recently bought the 800 IS camera confirmed my opinion.

Good camera for the price.

  • Summary: I got this used camera recently and so far I really like it. It is compact without being fragile, takes good pictures, and has the features I wanted. It is easy to use without having to refer to the manual constantly to change settings. The price was right so all in all, I am happy with the purchase.

Sweet digital compact

Cybamuse, Amazon

  • Summary: Although not a big fan of early Canon digitals, images from friends convinced me that Canon had come a long way from its original crappy roots - and this camera doesn't disappoint although there are some cons as well as pro's (aren't there always?!): Pro's: **Very light **Sleek and stylish **Battery lasts a very long time - I've done a 4 day trip in Spain and a week in London before needing to charge the battery, and it will sit in the camera unused for up to 3 weeks...

Canon SD700IS is the Best

HiClass, Amazon

  • Summary: I took this camera to Paris the end of April '07 after only having the camera a couple of weeks. I have some of the best pictures I have ever taken on a vacation! Clear, crisp, close up or far away, they are great. I can't say I was always positioned correctly - etc., but the Image Stabilization (IS) was good to use with the zoom. I have the gargoyles on the top of Notre Dame clearly, using the zoom from the sidewalk. I didn't have to climb endless stairs up the tower.

Nice camera

  • Summary: I have been waiting for this camera. It was difficult to get sharp pictures especially the macro shots with my previous camera being small, but this camera takes sharp pictures much more easily. I do not have to rest my arms on any solid objects to get jitter free pictures. Great camera to carry around for any snap shots.

The 4x Optical Zoom makes this camera a keeper!

  • Summary: This camera beats the Casio Exilim EX-Z850 in optical zoom, and as I quickly found out, that was more than enough to make up for its inferiority in virtually every other category. I know the Casio is supposed to be the better camera, but the bottom line is that the 4x optical zoom is more valuable than the white balance settings or the best shot settings.

So far so good

  • Summary: Comments about Canon PowerShot SD700 IS: I've had this camera for a few days and I've been loving it so far! It's small enough to carry around when I go out, but it also feels more solid than some of the ultra-slim cameras being sold these days. The Image Stabilization feature seems to work pretty well, though I'm no expert on this.
  • Pros: Good zoom, Nice Features and Settings, Portable
  • Cons: No manual controls

Top-end Elph camera is solid but introduces quirks at high price

Omar Siddique, Amazon
13 August 2006
  • Summary: I've happily used Canon Elph digital cameras for years; my SD700 is the fifth model I've owned in the series. Other people have reviewed this camera in general, so I'll only compare it to the Canon SD600 which I also own (see my glowing review of that model w/comparisons to previous models). The newest Powershot Elph camera, the SD700 adds several welcome enhancements to the Elph family, notably the optical image stabilization and the 4x zoom.

It's about time!!!

  • Summary: It took me a ton of research & several camera test-drives/returns before I finally got to this diamond in the rough. I was looking for a replacement to my previous compact camera & was debating between a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7, Canon PowerShot S3 IS & the Casio Exilim EX-Z850. I know what you're thinking... The Lumix & the S3 are NOT compact...
