Get close, stay steady
Engineered with Canon's sophisticated Image Stabilizer technology, the SD700 IS Digital Elph gives you the "shake-free" performance that makes your pictures sharp and clear. No matter how close you zoom in, the SD700 IS Digital Elph keeps everything stable. All you have to think about is your subject.

High performance, high style
This is a camera that could make it on looks alone. But wait until you see its performance. The 4x optical zoom brings you in for intimate close-ups. The 6.0-megapixel CCD produces images of impressive quality with resolution that lets you create big prints.

Canon innovation enhances your experience
The PowerShot SD700 IS Digital Elph features new ISO 800 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater flexibility for shooting.

Advanced imaging technology improves every photo

DIGIC II Image Processor
Canon's DIGIC II Image Processor is designed to improve processing speed and image quality, so DIGIC II provides markedly faster startup, autofocus, and playback, plus it assures that every image is more colorfully vibrant.

iSAPS Technology
iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC II Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

Shoot and view wide images
The PowerShot SD700 IS Digital Elph includes a 16:9 widescreen resolution option, producing images and film clips that are perfect for your widescreen TV or computer monitor.

Superior movie quality
Fast Frame Rate Movie Mode allows you to record extremely smooth, full-motion movie clips for up to one minute in QVGA at 60 frames per second (fps) (320 x 240 pixels). With a highly flexible movie mode, you can create the movie that's perfect for any application. Select from VGA (640 x 480 pixels) and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels) with frame rates of 30 fps and 15 fps for recording up to one hour or 1 GB. Plus, Compact Movie Mode (QQVGA; 160 x 120 pixels) records at 15 fps for up to 3 minutes.

    Canon SD700-IS Compact PowerShot Digital Elph Serial No. 2628105xxx: One of the reasons that Canon as an enterprise excels in this new world of Digital Compact Cameras, is that they have the ability to move the technology that has been refined in their flagship professional equipment, to the semi-pro or consumer gear, and on down to their "pocket cameras." This camera is an excellent example of Canon bringing over several very important Pro features. The most obvious is the large, clear, high resolution LCD display; a similar display used in Canon's $4000 pro equipment. The other important feature is the use of their effective Image Stabilization, IS. Many of the reviews I have read recently do not give full credit or understanding of this very important "candid" photographic tool. When using this camera with IS switched on, one has the ability of taking good shots at 1/15 sec or even lower, assuming that your subject is not moving. Many shots can be taken with out the Flash. Read the manual packed with the camera and experiment with this feature; you will be surprised at how powerful and easy to use this feature is.

    For those wanting a quick & dirty review plus see some unedited images:


    This camera has a WOW factor for any class of user. I have used and/or own the best Canon digitals and this camera adds to a great line-up of cameras. As a teaching Pro, I for one like the strong flash, and the IS feature. Another feature I like is the Auto ISO feature. This is like committing heresy for a supposed Pro, wanting any AUTO features.

    Stepping up from my Canon S40 to the Canon SD700 was the perfect choice for me. Since deciding that my old S40 wasn't up to pair with the versatility and compact size that I needed, I looked on Canon's website to see what new cameras were on the market. I compared three basically similarly built cameras: Canon's SD600, SD630 and SD700. Wow! I thought. List price of $499 for a camera? With the only difference being an added viewfinder, the color variations on the body and image stabilization?

    Is this camera really worth it?

    Being a VERY touchy / feeling / must test something out in person kind of gal, I went to Costco and Ritz Camera before finding a floor model at Best Buy. There, I was able to compare the SD 700 with Sony's 8.1 megapixel contenders and Nikon's family of digital cameras. I poked. I prodded. I made movies. I rationalized. I bought it.

    I haven't looked back in regret since.

    This camera is a powerhouse: It's small, quick to start, and you can use digital zoom while recording in video mode. The internal color filters while in SCN mode are a big plus: the less time I have to spend in Adobe Photoshop, the better.

    Plus, the SD700 can even fit into my smallest bag WITH my keys and my wallet. This feature alone makes me want to take it everywhere with me. You never know when opportunities to take photographs may arise. And yes, I actually DO like the fact that like the SD600, this camera has a viewfinder. Personally, I thought the size of the LCD screen in the SD630 was too large. The black contrast matting surrounding the preview LCD screen in the SD 700 is perfect and just right.

    Like Cameron below me, my zoom is quiet and I do not have a noisy video problem.

    Quiet Operation Yields Top Quality Photos and Nice Videos.

    I've used my SD700 IS for several days now. Before receiving it I was concerned about the reviews on Amazon that talked about the noisy video problem. However, the first reviews were written before the camera was released in the US. So I crossed my fingers. I got my camera from Crutchfield. (By the way, their custom service was excellent!)

    I have been unable to reproduce the noisy video problem. My videos are *not* noisy and sound good (for a camera of this size). I will say that if I turn up my computer's volume as loud as it will go...THEN there is some ambient background noise. But the volume is extremely loud at that point and I expect a tiny microphone to have some noise when played back at such a high level. For normal video shooting and playback, my SD700 sounds just great. I've tested it with an without the image stabilization activated and the videos do not have any excess noise. Also, my zoom is quiet! Anyway, my experience with the camera obviously differs from others'. Not sure if that helps you or not.

    As far as the picture quality, I am also happy. Most of my shots so far have been indoors in the evening using the flash. Color saturation is fine and flash coverage is really good. (I'll upload some examples if I get a chance.)

    Hindsight being 20/20, I'm not sure the image stabilization is something I needed. With a flash, it really isn't necessary and I've been an amateur photographer for many years so I know how to hold a camera. I'm sure the IS will be handy if I'm ever in a situation when I'm taking photos from a moving car, or letting someone else use the camera.
