Plus, Compact Movie Mode (QQVGA; 160 x 120 pixels) records at 15 fps for up to 3 minutes.

- Ability to take great low noise shots in darker situations (indoors, night ect..) with the flash turned off.
- ISO settings are right at your fingertips.
- Pictures come out exactly the way you see them on the LCD, they are perfect everytime.
- Solid construction.
- Good macro mode for its size.
- Menu is very easy.
- Changing settings is a breeze.
- Image Stabilization makes a noticable difference when taking shots indoors.
- Perfect size,.
- This is the first digital camera i have actually used the video mode on. The videos are as clear as my video camera.The videos have to be seen.
I would highly reccomend this camera, It's the best I've owned and this is my 6th digital.This one will be with me for some time to come.
The big deal with this camera is the IMAGE STABILIZATION. What this does is compensates for say, a shaky hand, and makes images sharper and clearer in the process. Now, other brands have things such as an "Anti-Shake DSP". These do serve the same basic purpose, but do so DIGITALLY, by (among other things) messing with your ISO and shutter speed! NOT COOL! Canon's method is OPTICAL, which actually adjusts the lens to achieve this, so the images are sharp and clear without any additional noise.
How well does this work in real life? I don't know about the rest of you but I'm a caffeine junkie, and my hands can be a little shaky at times. This camera helps me keep stable shots. It even improves your image quality when using a slower shutter speed. I was amazed at the images I was getting with a 1/8 shutter and no tripod!
Now, a word on megapixels: you might say that 6MP is a bit low when compared to the 10MP cameras that are out today. I'll tell you this: Any camera 5MP and up is going to be way more than enough for pretty much any type of photo printer. As the adage goes, "quality over quantity", and images will look better with a great 6MP camera than a mediocre 10MP camera.
Image quality aside, I LOVE the aesthetics of this camera. It's a *little* big for an ultracompact, but it has a solid and tactile feel, you can tell its put together well. Either way, it fits very easily into my jeans pockets (and I buy my jeans on the slim-fitting side) and I can use it one handed. The buttons are a little small, as is the dial, but such is the price to pay for a small camera. The menus are RAPID and very easy to navigate, powers on quickly, shutter lag is nearly nonexistent (though shot-to-shot times could be better).
- MANUAL FEATURES. I know, nobody buys an ultracompact point-and-shoot for manual features, but I would gladly pay an extra $100 just to be able to set my own aperture and shutter speed. However, none of their competitors are really doing this either.
- Thickness; no, 1.04 inch is not huge, but competitors' cameras are clocking in at 0.8 or 0.6 (Casio Exilim), and Canon should be keeping up with the likes of the ultra-ultra-compacts and giving us a truly slim camera-- even if it means trading in that nice 4x zoom for 3x.
- Buttons are small. Optical viewfinder is too small for anyone to use, they should have just done away with it and given us a larger screen.
- Shot-to-shot time could be improved.
Sure, the SD700 IS is not perfect, but it's the closest thing there is to "perfect" when it comes to a midrange ultra-compact. Highly recommended.
Having 35-140 lens along with Image Stabilizer for the going price is terrific! Really love the LCD, it's bright and readable. Used without glasses and could see what I was doing, mostly. Being old school, having an optical viewfinder, is a requirement. Comes in handy to save battery life, use when it's too bright or when in a place that it would be impolite to have the LCD on.
IS is a nice feature that is helpful in low light. You will see a difference with less camera shake which cause blurry pics. If you are not going to fiddle faddle around with the camera the IS will help, not always, but in certain situations. Just keep it on all the time in shoot only mode. Many professional reviews are all positive about this model.
Great battery life! I have taken 650+ shots using the LCD mostly, some flash, playing with the menus and the battery still has a charge! I have charged the battery a couple of times and it seems to go on forever, surprised about how long this small battery maintains the charge.
Nice built in feature that is helpful; My colors- can review shots and compare your pic with all the built in color options like Vivid, Neutral, Sepia, etc. If another one looks better than choose instead.
The wrist strap is adjustable, able to tighten on my wrist. Not using a wrist or neck strap is asking for trouble. Purchased the Canon accessory pack with extra battery, carrying case and neck strap. I like the fact that the straps are easy to take off. Wanted different straps because when wearing a shirt with chest pocket the neck strap will come in handy, otherwise will carry in pants pocket with wrist strap.
I would recommend this camera to anyone!

This camera can't focus. Instead it makes some funny sounds and pictures come out blurry. Now if I return the item I will lose money.
