I've been very happy with this camera since my Nikon 5700 died about a year and a half ago. However, it's very slow in use due to focus times, flash cycle times and so many functions being down in a menu somewhere. It's also pretty much impossible to get the zoom exactly where you want it. Problems: Poor zoom control, occasional sticking of zoom control.

This replacement for my lost Powershot A95 is very good. The only things missing here, compared to A95 is the swiveling display and fast flash recharge. Otherwise, a very GOOD upgrade from A95 and very VERSATILE point and shoot camera. It can even produce very professional-looking images if you can master the manual controls :) Just check http://zenstrive.deviantart.com and see some cool photographies :) Problems: Flash recharging is SO SLOW !! No Image Stabilizers, forcing me to find flat ...

This camera was a great disappointment, especially given the price. I have been very happy with only a few aspects of it--it is easy to use (although transferring pics to the computer was a nightmare--zero support for linux, and I had to buy a card reader). The zoom works very well--6x is great, the interpolation on the digital zoom is not bad can actually get you a bit above there without too much loss of quality. The zoom is also very easy to control. The settings are also easy to ...

I’ve bought the camera 3 months ago and I’m very pleased by it. Still works great even after taking over 4000 pictures. Pro: Very good picture quality Reliable and fast focus Very little lens distortion in macro, normal, and telephoto Fast operation especially when using a fast card (I’m using Kingston Elite Pro 50x. My experience says that more faster cards don’t get much more out of the camera.) Very impressive macro performance (much better than I expected!) Full (!) manual controls Additi ...

Purchased this as a replacement for the SD400-- was looking for something with more features and power, but not as expensive and bulky as a dSLR (that will be the next step). Used it during a recent vacation in Europe. Camera was fantastic. Easy to use, long battery life, nice 6x zoom, good size, great images, rich feature set, etc. Problems: None

As a compromise between a 'fashion accessory' and an SLR, this camera is probably an ideal choice. In addition to offering full control of settings, it also offers an excellent movie mode, and the extra zoom is a huge bonus. Problems: None

This camera is a worthy portable and compact successor to my Canon EOS 20D. I have used and owned 8 digital cameras, and have had this camera for about 3 months now. I thought I'd give it some good use before I posted here. Some of the A700s strong points: - little lens distortion in macro, normal, and telephoto - excellent battery life (high above average) - layout and ease of use (as for most Axxx series) - fast start-up time - excellent macro mode (much better than expected) A700 shortfalls: ...
