The A710 IS is a imprssive A series camera with a 6x zoom lens (35mm-210mm)- fantastic for zooming close to a subject and grat image quality. What I like best about it has lot of My Color modes (including several neat ones for skin tones) plus full manual controls and FlexiZone AF for selecting a AF point- that's one feature missing from my 2008 A580 and Stitch Assist (missing from my 2008 A580 as well). Also found the IS to quite effective in reducing camera shake when the IS to "shoot ...

i BOUGHT THIS CAMERA BECAUSE I WANTED IMAGE STABILIZATION AND A BIT OF A ZOOM. This is what I got the zoom sucks unless it`s macro. Night shots are incredable especialy when i adjust the manual control all the way till i get a bright screen and take the shot in 20 seconds no flash on a tripod ! it`s crisp with no noise. Day well lit pics that are closeups are incredable clear and colourful... Image stabilization was exellent for it's first round of tech and I love the videos in my truck while ...

I bought this cam as soon as Canon released it, end 2006, for 300Eur, and took 7,000 photos so far. I had great expectations but I am somewhat disappointed as, though it has great capabilities it also suffers from real flaws. I was looking for a camera that works on 2 standard AA batteries with a powerful zoom helped by an IS system, plus an optical viewfinder. Such cameras have sadly become a rarity … only Sony and Canon continue to offer the optical viewfinder that is required to shoot on ...

Everything I expected locked in a solidly designed body - and it STILL somehow fits into pocket. Bought the A710is in September 2007, I carry it everywhere, I dropped it more often than I wanted. Size + Features + ImageQuality were the decisive factors when I was choosing. It is not very "slim" camera but you can STILL stuff it into a pocket - that's what I was after: a versatile/creative camera that I need not to rock on my neck&belly half a day. For the size it's quite comfortable to hold ...

I had a Canon S45 camera and I was definitely satisfied about that product. When it was too damaged to be repaired I choose this camera as a replacement and it was an happy choice. Good image quality, nice zoom 6x and anything you can espect from an A series + the Image Stabilization. Problems: Only two AA batteries do not give enough power and the photo-to-photo time is excessive using flash and badly charged batteries. The battery / memory compartment has an hard to open door and I am a bit ...

Excellent phots - took over 300 in washington dc including many museum painting/sculpture pix (w/o flash) and ALL came out just wonderful. Not a bad one in the bunch. Also had a panasonic FZ50 which my husband used and frankly, out of the camera w/o post processing, viewing on a new flat panel tv, the canon won hands down for LOW noise. Not sure where these other folks are having problems. Problems: none

For the money I paid (£170) I really don't think that this camera can be beaten! The lens appears to be of good quality, has a generous 6X optical zoom and is coupled to a large F2.8 maximum aperture at the wide end. The image stabilisation is incredibly useful and very effective. The high ISO noise levels on this camera are a little higher than average, but the image stabilisation means that a speed 2 stops lower can be used. This means that you can get away with iso 200 when iso 800 would ...

Bought 10 months ago. 3 months using CHDK hack. For those who are looking for a portable camera price/value is unbeaten at this condition (Camera + CHDK). Of course with its compromises as P&S camera but quite honest results. And a lot of manual controls if you wish. Good Auto Mode for those who dont care about adjustments.The only big drawback is flash recharging time due to only 2 AA batteries. Nothing is perfect...

The fine Canon underwater case sold it for me in the first instance, with excellent view of the large screen, plus all controls, at an affordable price. I have since discovered how powerful the programmable exposure and adjustable colour balance is for underwater use. Very solid camera construction, and comfortable to hold for general use, plus easily pocketable unlike mock-slr style cameras with similar features. But the most important feature of all for me is the speed of capture of the ...

I bought this camera in january 2007 and i'm quite happy with it. The 6x zoom and the image stabilizer make this camera attractive and at the price of 250€ is a good deal. Problems: Flash recharging is too slow It tends to slight overexposure in bright conditions At the wide end of the zoom barrel distortion is quite a problem, anyways it is something present in almost every compact camera
