Canon PowerShot SD700 IS Digital Camera Review

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. Like the other models from this series, it does not have shutter and aperture priority modes (but 16 other shooting modes).

It features useful optical image stabilization system (with three modes, Continuous, Shoot Only, and Panning) and 4x optical zoom instead of 3x, as well as customizable “My Camera” settings. The SD700 IS reproduces the colors very well; images are sharp, free from noise (surprisingly low up to ISO 800) and artefacts, and it is also very responsive.

This is everything you could want in a compact camera that makes not just decent photo, but excellent ones – maybe therefore its price is not the most competitive. DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) and PictBridge compatibility are ensured.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
