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 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.
Advanced presets for the best possible photos under certain conditions
Vivid: Yield vibrant shots with dramatic high-contrast.
Vivid Blue: Emphasize the sea, sky, and other blue areas.
Vivid Green: Add vivid dimension to greens for extraordinary nature shots.

If we have any complaint, it's not from my wife, but from me. The camera is just too small for my hands (holding, shooting, changing modes, etc. are all a nuisance for me). I'm 6-3 and my hands are not large, fingers are probably average length for my size. Nonetheless, I find I need to use mostly fingertips when handling the camera. Maybe this is in part because I usually use a Canon 30D SLR. My wife (5-5 and average hands) thinks the SD700 is perfect, large enough for convenient use and fits in her purse easily. It's a bit better than the SD300 in that the body is slightly thicker.
As for other features, all are great. Like any very powerful camera, there is a lot to learn if you want to move off of the fully automatic mode into the many creative options allowed by the manual controls or even the scene modes. Even if you are experienced digital photographer, you will want to practice for some hours before heading for a kid's birthday party as the official photographer. The camera has all the quality for such an outing, but needs considerable expertise if you go beyond the automatic mode. With my SLR I like to drop back to automatic to take a backup picture in case I've screwed up the manual setting (left some adjustment on the wrong setting ... such as ISO which can cause noise that is not visible in a quick check of the image on the LCD). This is a simple one click turn of a knob on the SLR but on the SD700 you need to open up the menu and do a couple of clicks. This takes time you may not have, so you want to be an expert with the camera or you want to leave it on auto or just choose a scene mode (portrait, landscape, moving object, etc.). You'll be very happy with this camera if you never take it off of auto.
This camera is no exception. Small and nicely engineered with a very fast startup time, this is definitely a camera that you can carry around anywhere. I've even been able to put it in the back pocket of my jeans without any problem.
Before buying it I read extensive reviews and found that the quality of the images on this camera are exceptional. I've used it to take high resolution macro shots and long distance photos and it always works well.
The layout of the controls is very slightly different to older Canon cameras, but you should be able to adjust quickly.
The camera doesn't come with a carrying case, but I was able to purchase a silicone skin in blue (Canon PowerShot SD700 Silicone Skin Case - (Frosty Blue)). This has worked wonderfully to protect the camera and make it easier to get a firm grip on it.
With a 2 Gb memory card, we were able to take this camera for a week's tour of Washington DC without filling it up. The viewing mode for existing photos worked well here, because it can display the photos the right way up whether you took them in landscape or portrait mode. The battery also held up well to a lot of use, and only needed recharging about every third day. We mostly used the display to focus and shoot, though there is a useable viewfinder.
While this camera doesn't allow you to take RAW mode photos, I think that it's an ideal camera for any photo enthusiast who wants something that's portable and takes really great shots.
The camera takes fantastic photos and the indoor shots that were grainy on the Pentax came out clean on the Casio. I much prefer a lower mega pixel camera that can take clean photos at the highest resolution than a higher mega pixel camera that has noise at its highest setting.
I took the camera to the Tulip festival and took lots of terrific photos. The camera did a great job on close ups and distance shots and this camera is really good at taking quick photos that are not blurry.
I only wished I had this camera for use earlier.
Although not part of this review, I thought I would like to mention that Amazon went out of their way to get this camera to me in time for the Tulip festival including getting a last minute change to their shipping department to change the address and delivery method. I ordered 2-day shipping Wednesday night but changed the method and address Thursday morning, after Amazon started the fulfillment process. The Amazon representative was able to cancel the fulfillment at the last moment and re-order it with the updated information. Amazon got me the camera Friday at the correct address. Although not part of the review, I thought I should give Amazon credit where credit is due.

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.
