I've had my new Sony for a week now, exploring and learning all the features, and I'm pretty happy with it so far.  Today, decided to take some telephoto test shots, compared with my Canon Powershot SX700.  My first two shots were of a neighbor's deck and at first glance, thought the Canon was a bit sharper (had both set for 300mm, ISO 100, f/6.3, HH, with IS turned on). So, tried it again in my backyard, setting up a test shot about 60 feet away, with the settings on both cameras the same. ...

Hello all, I have been using the SX700 about 2 months and have yet to figure out how to get good long exposure night shots. The main difficulty comes from the limitations on ISO (to 100) and illumnation time (to 15sec). I tried taking some shots under a full moon in snowy mountains, but with these settings it just comes out black. With the built in 'night mode' the shot also comes out black under such conditions. I imagine I would need to be able to change at least one of the ISO or...

I am looking to replace my older P&S camera and the Sony CX12 camcorder with just one device. You guys, who shoot video with SX700, have you made some comparisons with videos taken with some dedicated camcorders? Thank in advance for your reply. Peter

Hello, I just bought my wife the SX700 and every thing is fine except that she keeps getting some sort of warning. The focus box will turn yellow with a little stop sign in the lower right corner with an exclamation mark in it. I can't find out what it is in the downloaded PDF manual. I'm guessing it's some sort of exposure warning, but I'm not sure. Can someone please tell me? Thanks!

Hi, I'm looking at upgrading to this camera. I really like the look and feel of this camera. It seems to have great shooting options and has almost everything I'm looking for. My question is: how do people feel about the image quality?  I have looked at some sample pictures on Flickr but I feel one there are not very many pictures and two the image quality isn't there, I was wondering if this was the camera or possibly the people taking the pictures.  Any help would be greatly appreciated....

I've just upgraded from a 5 year old Panasonic TZ7 / ZS3 to the Canon SX700 and while I love the new Canon, I am having a little bit of difficulty trying to hold it comfortably with one hand (right hand). The problem is where to put my thumb.  The Panasonic had a dedicated grip area for a thumb on the back of the camera, but the Canon doesn't.  Without thinking, I keep putting my thumb on the SX700's blue "play" button, as that's roughly where the Panasonic's thumb grip area was, thus I end...

Hi all It's been several years since I bought a new camera. Last one was a Panasonic TZ9 which has succumbed to the 'dust inside' issue they seem to suffer from and it can't be fixed (we've tried). I don't want to go back to Panasonic as I wasn't really happy with the image quality and  I'd prefer to go back to a Canon which was what my original digital camera was (PowerShot A610). I still look at some of the pics I took with that camera and love them as they're so clear. The thing is -- I...

I think I understand the physics of cameras well enough to say that putting a large sensor in a small camera effectively limits the optical zoom that can effectively use the area on the sensor. At least this is practically true with the cameras on the market: the compact cameras with larger sensors have smaller optical zooms. I also think I understand that digitally zooming is not really different than cropping an image. The subject in the frame appears larger, but only because less of the...
