PowerShot A710 IS Digital Compact Camera

Canon PowerShot A710 IS 7.1MP 1/2.5" CCD Silver:
The official marketing text of Canon PowerShot A710 IS 7.1MP 1/2.5" CCD Silver as supplied by the manufacturer
The compact PowerShot A710 IS features a 6x zoom so you can get closer to the action. Optical Image Stabilization ensures steady shots in low light, while showing off images is a joy on the 2.5" LCD.

- 7.1 Megapixels.
- 6x optical zoom with optical Image Stbilizer.
- 9-point AiAF and FlexiZone AF/AE.
- 20 shooting modes and My Colors.
- 2.5" LCD screen.
- Safety Zoom.
- High-speed ISO 800.
- 30fps VGA and 60fps QVGA movies.
- Wide range of accessories.

7.1 Megapixels
The 7.1 Megapixel sensor produces sharp high quality photos, enabling large prints and detailed crops.

6x optical zoom
The PowerShot A710 IS packs a powerful image stabilized 6x optical zoom lens into a remarkably compact space. A real-image optical viewfinder helps with quick composition and framing accuracy.

Optical Image Stabilizer
Optical Image Stabilizer (IS) technology counteracts camera shake at slower shutter speeds and full zoom. It also allows for flash-free shooting indoors and in low light.

Canon's DIGIC II image processor ensures fast, responsive camera performance and superior image processing. iSAPS technology uses scene information to optimize 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 a focus point.

Shooting modes and My Colors
A choice of 20 shooting modes include a full creative zone for manual control and 10 Special Scene modes for tricky lighting conditions, including Snow, Beach and Underwater. My Colors allows dramatic colour effects to be applied to images and movies.

Large 2.5" LCD screen
The 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 useful 3:2 ratio overlay indicates the printable area for standard photo prints.

Safety Zoom and Digital Tele-Converter
Safety Zoom offers extra zoom magnification without affecting image quality¹. Use the Digital Tele-Converter feature for extra reach on every shot - just like adding a tele-converter lens to the camera.

Great indoor and night shots
High-speed ISO 800 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.

High quality movies
Shoot extra long² 30fps VGA quality movies with full audio, or record QVGA movies at 60fps and analyze in sharp slow motion.

A complete range of optional accessories includes wide and tele converter lenses, a close-up lens and slave flash. A waterproof case allows for underwater shooting at depths of up to 40 metres.

This is an auto-generated long summary of Canon PowerShot A710 IS 7.1MP 1/2.5" CCD Silver based on the first three specs of the first five spec groups.
Picture quality
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.
7.1 MP
Image sensor size *
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Lens system
Optical zoom *
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom *
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
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′).
0.228 - 1.37" (5.8 - 34.8 mm)
Light exposure
ISO sensitivity *
A measure of a photographic film's sensitivity to light.
80, 100, 200, 400, 800, Auto
Light exposure modes *
The different lengths of time for the exposure for a camera e.g. longer exposure for low light.
Aperture priority AE, Auto, Shutter priority AE
Light metering *
Light metering mode refers to the way in which a device determines the exposure. Multi-pattern and evaluative metering: the camera measures the light intensity in several points in the scene. Centre-weighted metering: the meter concentrates between 60 to 80 percent of the sensitivity towards the central part of the viewfinder. Spot metering: the camera will only measure a very small area of the scene (between 1-5% of the viewfinder area).
Centre-weighted, Spot
Flash modes *
Different modes for a camera flash which are manually/automatically activated e.g. auto-flash mode, flash on with red eye reduction.
Red-eye reduction
Flash working distance
0.55 - 3.5 m
Video recording *
Recording moving visual images.
Maximum video resolution *
This is the maximum resolution of video images. Resolution is a measure of the degree of detail visible.
640 x 480 pixels
Motion JPEG frame rate
1.7 fps
Video formats supported
The type of video formats that can be used by this device.
Built-in microphone *
Microphone that is found inside the product.
Voice recording
Compatible memory cards *

Display *
The description of display that can includes display type, resolution, size etc.
Display diagonal *
Size of the display for this product, measured diagonally, usually in inches.
Display resolution (numeric)
Total number of pixels that display has.
115000 pixels
Viewfinder type
A viewfinder is the window in the camera through which a photographer views the picture. Used for choosing, composing, and often focusing the image. There are two types: optical and digital. In an optical viewfinder, the photographer looks through a transparent window to frame and focus the image. The photographer is seeing the real image, through the window of the viewfinder. With a digital viewfinde, there is an LCD display built into a camera that gives a digital view of where the camera is pointing. It's used to compose and focus the image.
Ports & interfaces
PictBridge *
PictBridge is an industry standard introduced in 2003 from the Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) for direct printing. It allows images to be printed directly from digital cameras to a printer, without having to connect the camera to a computer using common connectivity like USB or Bluetooth.
DC-in jack
The socket/plug where the DC electricity supply connects to the device.
I/O ports
An interface on a device to which you can connect another device.
A/V out
White balance *
Technique in photography and image processing, which involves a global adjustment of the intensities of the colors (typically red, green, and blue primary colors). An important goal of this adjustment is to render specific colors – particularly neutral colors including white – correctly.
Auto, Cloudy, Custom modes, Daylight, Fluorescent, Tungsten
Scene modes *
Scenery mode', 'Portrait mode' and other modes which are manually/automatically activated on a camera and change the settings (e.g. exposure time) accordingly.
