BenQ DC-T700


Let's hope this isn't the last good BenQ digital camera

At least it doesn’t have buck teeth and a banjo. From the front at least the T700 is virtually identical to the X725, with a stylish and extremely slim stainless-steel case, available in black, red, white or the silver model shown here. The camera’s...

BenQ DC-T700 7Mp compact camera


The 7Mp BenQ DC-T700 has a 3in touchscreen that handles all the conventional menu navigation and control.

The BenQ DC-T700 doesn't produce the best pictures, but it can't be faulted for style or ease of use. And the touchscreen will be reason enough for inexperienced camera users to buy. More confident photographers may prefer the Canon IXUS 75.

BenQ DC-T700 review


The BenQ DC-T700 ticks plenty of the compact camera boxes: supremely pocket-friendly, easy to navigate (thanks to the cool touchscreen) and pretty as a picture. If you think that a choice of colours is more important than a choice of features, then the...

Large touchscreen ; Clear images ; Thin build

Slow ; Struggles in low light ; Poor battery life

Nonetheless, the DC-T700 is stylishly made and the touchscreen is both fun and user-friendly

Review: BenQ DC T700


It's slim and pretty. But is the T700 only about form and none of function?

Large touchscreen; clear images; thin build

Slow; struggles in low light; poor battery life

The Pentax-made lens means that picture quality from the DC T700 isn't bad at all, at least until the light starts to go. We've come to expect small-sized cameras like this to struggle in the dark, but not to the point that it's so slow or that it has...

BenQ T700


The 7MP BenQ T700 compact digital camera sports a 3in LCD rear panel with touch-screen control functionality. BenQ claim that it's the world's slimmest touch-screen model, but what did the WDC test team make of it?

Image quality, Design, Large touch-screen LCD

Operational speed

While the T700 is aimed at more style-conscious photographers, ease of use and great image control and would make it a fine choice as a first compact.

BenQ - T700


Gone are the days when a camera was purchased simply for the range of its functions and the sharpness of its images. In a very crowded and competitive digital camera market, what makes your model stand ...

The BenQ T700 has been specifically designed to appeal to style conscious people who don't want lots of fussy controls or anything too bulky but want high grade images with the minimum amount of effort. It achieves this aim pretty well.

BenQ DC T700


BenQ's latest pocket snapper combines a pleasing design with an innovative large touchscreen that speeds up settings selection.

Large touchscreen provides quick access to settings.

Noisy output. Slow autofocus. No spot focus or exposure.

The T700 is fine as a party snapper, but it's not up to anything strenuous

Keep sticky fingers away from the touch screen

A great feature set and very good image quality, but this camera has fuzzy tenancies on more detailed shots.

BenQ DC T700


The BenQ DC T700 has a touchscreen and men have to touch everything, but it is also slim and stylish so appears to be designed for women. Is the T700 the most ironic camera ever made?

Touchscreen is responsive; Good Pentax SMC lens fitted; Colour reproduction is good

Macro doesn't work properly
