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

A sweet camera. Had this little Elph over a year now and have gotten some very
nice images from it. The 6 mp sensor produces clean low ISO results and the IS is a
real boon. I have been able to hand-hold down to about 1/4 second and gotten
sharp results. The benefits of IS will vary between users though, depending on how
big your paws are and how much your hands naturally shake!

I selected 4 for value for money because when I purchased this camera it was $499
new. This camera can now be had for around $300 US, which is a steal for such a
great camera. Of course it won't be available new much longer with the advent of the
850IS.

Problems:

No problems per se. Would be nice to have live histogram, but it is there in review
mode.
