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

We bought this camera to replace/upgrade our 3.2MP Olympus Stylus. However, we have been extremely dissapointed with the qaulity of the pictures vs. the older camera. One of our biggest frustrations is the amount of Red Eye in all of our pictures taken since we bought this camera. We use the "Red Eye Reduction" setting but this doesn't really seem to help. The Olympus simply took better pictures despite being a lower MP camera.

We are now going back to Olympus. Not only was this camera a waste of money but, more importantly, we wasted those precious moments since we bought this that we did not capture with a better camera. We have shared our frustrations with others and were surprised to learn that many others have had similar complaints (especially with the amount of Red Eye in Canon cameras).

Problems:

Poor picture qaulity; significant red eye even with Red Eye Reduction feature on.
