just bought several days ago, 2nd hand at HK$1000, still in very good condition. the 10x zoom is great at daytime, the quality of photos is still very charming. i love it.. Problems: you've better use camera stand when the target is 10x zoom. there is lot of noise up to iso 400, especially when light is not enough.

I have had my C-700 UZ for 18 months. I love the camera. I have taken 1000's of shots on the med resolution and am overall very satisified with my pictures. I purchased a 128mb smart media card right away, and have filled it up plus some on a 64mb sm card, all using the same set of CR-V3 batteries which in my opinion last the best. After orginally trying to figure out how to get them downloaded onto my computer, I have never had another problem downloading. I purchased this camera for the ...

I've had this camera for a good while now and I can honestly say that it is one of the best cameras I have tested and own. I love the fact that I have full control of nearly all the settings and features this camera has to offer. Problems: The main issue I have with the camera is the inability of the camera to take decent quality pictures in certain dim lighting conditions where the flash will actually hurt the image rather than help at times.

I received the C700 as a gift for Christmas last year. I have shot family, graduation, friends of family in the thousands. I was able to shoot a full graduation ceremony with one set of NIMH 1800 with a mix of HQ and SHQ. I was located at the top of the grandstands and with the aide of a rest got shots with the 10X that were amazing. Original price was $600. Just recently celebrated the retirement of a co-worker, we picked up a refurbished C700 for $200 he has shot 100's of digitals. ...

i have had this camera for about 8 months now. I am not going to give this camera a 5 rating across the boards, because it is not perfect, nor is any other digi cam out there. It is a great camera packed with goodies inside it. Great for beginners to pro. I have read alot of pros and cons about this camera being overexposed with outside pictures, underexposed with inside. All i have to say is practice makes perfect. Know your aperature, shutter, DOF, etc. As far as the value for money, i ...

It is the best camera for me. I use often the 10x Zoom and take really nice pictures. I have it 7 month and found until now no other camera in this category, which I would like more. Some pictures are at http://community.webshots.com/user/sulamit_. Problems: No problems.

I have owned this camera for a year now and am still learning to use all the features. Yes, I get the "purple fringies" (chromatic aberrations) but love the small size and long zoom. I get approx 150 shots per charge of my NIMH batteries, so I only have to carry around one extra set of recharged batteries. I took the camera to Italy a few months ago and am delighted with the results. (see my photos at http://community.webshots.com/user/brooks461s Yes, you will notice the purple fringies, ...

I just purchased the camera.I was looking at the c-720 when i found the "discontinued" 700....with 10x zoom versus the 8x it was an easy choice and the price difference was substantial. I have not had it long enuff to form a full opinion but i have had none of the "hot pixel " problems and it is very customisable with the manual modes.so far i am happy. Problems: The only thing that i didnt like was that i had a 3x tele lens that i paid over 200 for and i could not use it with out buying two ...

This is an excellent camera. It was discontinued about a month ago but if you can still get one it's a great camera. The image quality is excellent. The camera takes excellent pictures in low light and rarely needs the flash. The 10x zoom is amazing. The camera is also very small for the size of the lense. There are many manual settings that can allow you to completly control your pictures. Overall a great camera. Problems: My only complaints are that the 8mb card that comes with the ...
