Canon PowerShot SD700 IS (Digital IXUS 800 IS / IXY Digital 800 IS) review

I purchased this camera a year ago based upon the excellent reviews. For the most part this camera produces excellent photos in good light mainly outdoors although the color saturation is somewhat unrealistic to my eyes. But overall very pleasing images for a pocket digicam.

However, indoor pictures are another matter entirely.

Problems:

Flash indoor pictures are always fuzzy to my eyes irregardless of focusing points. The indoor snapshots always have a warm yellow tinge to them that I don't particularly care for.
This camera is NOT worth the money spent. I've been completely spoiled by the brilliant Finepix F30 camera that I also own.

I sold this camera on ebay for a fairly good price based upon professional reviews.
