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.

Picture quality
Camera type *
There are a number of common types of digital cameras: compact cameras, bridge cameras, mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) and single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Bridge cameras 'bridge the gap' between the low-end compact and high-end professional (SLR) cameras. Also MILCs populate this mid-segment by combining the larger sensors and interchangeable lenses of DSLRs with the live-preview viewing system of compact cameras.
Compact camera
Megapixel *
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.

Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
