I sold an SD500 to buy the SD700. I also own a 20D.

But for it's "not great" audio quaity, one thing that gets overlooked with the SD700 is it's movie taking abilities. The IS is a welcomI still think the camera is about $75 e addition here.

I also have a Sony hif def HC3, which is what I would use if I wanted truly good video. But, I must admint, the SD700 bridges the gap as much as anything in the pocket camera class.

I've been very pleased with the quality of the images I'm getting from the SD700. And the video (apart from the audio) is nice, also. Sometimes, I think "good enough" is really "good enough."

I still think the camera is about $75 overpriced But, for someone looking for decent photo and video ability, it seems unmatched for pocket cameras.
