Canon PowerShot A700 review

 

Canon PowerShot A700

Easy-to-use exposure and focus controls; 6X zoom range; solid image quality; usable ISO 800.

LCD washes out; sluggish flash recycling.

The Canon PowerShot A700's useful 6X zoom range, decent image quality, almost-acceptable ISO 800 performance, and full manual controls will catch the attention of photo enthusiasts and snapshooters.

Canon PowerShot A700 Review

 

Announced just before PMA in February, the A700 is the new flagship of the ever-growing 'A' series of affordable feature-laden PowerShot models. As well as sporting a 6x (35-210mm equiv) optical zoom and 2.5-inch screen the A700 is the first of many...

Good resolution, clean and detailed results Natural, accurate color Good edge-to-edge sharpness Useful 35-210mm equiv. 6x zoom lens Fast, reliable focus Reliable exposure and white balance Sophisticated and comprehensive range of features and controls...

Clipped highlights and occasional exposure problems in bright, contrasty conditions Occasional clipping of very bright reds and yellows in bright conditions Zoom is a bit jumpy (not enough steps between 35 and 210mm) No ISO button Slow flash recycling...

Canon's A series PowerShots have proved very popular with photographers, thanks to the winning combination of keen pricing, a full and comprehensive feature set and solid build quality. The A700 is no exception, and will no doubt prove just as popular....

Canon Powershot A700

 

Featuring a 6x optical zoom, 6.0-megapixel CCD, automatic, partial, or fully manual exposure control, and a wide range of preset shooting modes, the Canon A700 is another fine addition to Canon's A-series of digital cameras. Built on the same...

Full Manual control (PASM) ; Vibrant, appealing color ; Good skin tones ; Auto white balance handles a wide range of lighting well ; Better than average exposure accuracy ; Better than average shutter response ; Good lens, sharp corners, low chromatic...

Only average speed from shot to shot ; Contrast is a little high, tends to lose highlight and shadow detail under harsh lighting ; Zoom lens could stand having a few more steps (14 settings across 6x makes for somewhat large steps) ; No image...

Canon PowerShot A700

 

I hope that chart helps a bit. Ready to learn more about the PowerShot A700? Our review starts right now

6X optical zoom lens offers more zoom power than on other entry-level cameras ; Very good photo quality; ISO 200 and 400 settings are usable for small prints ; Large 2.5" LCD display is usable in low light (though see issues below) ; Full manual...

LCD doesn't flip-out and rotate like on A610/A620; resolution could be better ; Some redeye ; Can only record about 8 minutes of VGA video due to 1GB file size limit ; Plastic tripod mount ; No rechargeable batteries bundled; tiny memory card included

If you want a compact digital camera with more zoom power than other cameras in this class, then the PowerShot A700 is well worth a look. The 6X zoom comes in handy for occasional nature and sports shooting (though an ultra zoom will get you...

When I decided to buy a new digital camera in June it wasn't an easy decision. While I am not particularly talented, I expect a good deal from a digital camera.
