Powershot A700

Canon PowerShot A700 Compact camera 6MP 1/2.5" CCD Silver:
The official marketing text of Canon PowerShot A700 Compact camera 6MP 1/2.5" CCD Silver as supplied by the manufacturer
Test the limits of your creativity with the richly featured PowerShot A700. A high performance 6x optical zoom lens and 6.0 Megapixel resolution combine for stunning shots from any distance.

6.0 Megapixels
A 6.0 Megapixel CCD allows for superb quality photo prints with razor-sharp definition. It provides more than enough detail for printing cropped images.

6x optical zoom
The PowerShot A700 packs a powerful 6x optical zoom lens into a remarkably compact space. A real-image optical viewfinder helps with quick composition and framing accuracy.

Visionary Technology
Canon's DIGIC II image processor links all camera functions and processes images at high speed for excellent responsiveness and extended battery life. iSAPS technology uses scene information to optimise camera settings before the shot is taken.

Flexible focusing
Rely on 9-point AiAF to keep even off-centre subjects sharply in focus, or use FlexiZone AF/AE to manually select focus points.

Shooting modes and My Colors
19 shooting modes include Manual mode for full creative control and 9 Special Scene modes for tricky lighting conditions. My Colors allows colour effects to be applied to images and movies.

High quality movies
Shoot extra long 30fps VGA quality movies with full audio, or record QVGA movies at 60fps and analyze in sharp slow motion.

Great indoor and night shots
A high-speed ISO 800 setting allows you to shoot correctly exposed images in low light conditions without using a flash. ISO 800 also enables shooting at higher shutter speeds, reducing the risk of image blur.

Widescreen recording
Shoot still images in Widescreen 16:9 mode for seamless playback on widescreen TV or printing on wide size paper to a SELPHY CP printer - perfect for viewing panoramas in all their glory.

Large 2.5" LCD screen
The large, bright 2.5" LCD features a wide viewing angle for easy group viewing. Night Display mode aids visibility in low light while a selectable Grid Line Display helps with composition.

A complete range of optional accessories includes wide and tele converter lenses, a close-up lens and a slave flash.

Direct printing
Connect to any PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible photo printer and push the Print/Share button for instant photolab quality prints.

CANON iMAGE GATEWAY provides 100MB of web space for your own online photo gallery. A comprehensive software suite is included for browsing, editing, downloading and organising photos, movies and slide shows.

It is difficult to go wrong with pretty much any digital camera from Canon. Canon cameras have no significant shortcomings and their A-line of compact cameras sells in huge numbers to happy customers. The A610 and A620 are a huge success with excellen...
The appearance of the A700 follows the lines of other A-series cameras and their construction. The body is mostly silvered plastic with the exception of the front, which is metal-clad. The generous grip, and the A700?s reasonably large size, combines t...

Price: about €255 (incl. VAT)When I decided to buy a new digital camera in June it wasnt an easy decision. While I am not particularly talented, I expect a good deal from a digital camera. The new camera had to beat my old Sony CyberShot DSC-P50, whi...

Canon PowerShot A700 Overview By: Mike Pasini and Dave Etchells Canon is continually expanding its PowerShot A-series cameras, even as they reduce some of their other lines. The new A700, announced just before Spring PMA 2006, is the first step in yet...

The Canon PowerShot A700 ($350) is a low cost camera offering a 6X zoom lens in place of the 3X or 4X lenses usually found on cameras this size. While its name makes it sound like the top-end camera in Canons A-series, thats up for debate. Whi...

Bottom line I enjoyed using the A700. It's a very easy camera to just carry around to pull out to grab a quick snapshot. The image quality is excellent and having the 6x optical zoom is, in my opinion, worth the extra $50 compared to the Canon Powershot A540...
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 ca...
