Canon PowerShot A700 Review

Announced just before PMA in February, the A700 is the new flagship of the ever-growing 'A' series of affordable feature-laden PowerShot models. As well as sporting a 6x (35-210mm equiv) optical zoom and 2.5-inch screen the A700 is the first of many cameras launched this year to use the latest 1/2.5" 6MP CCD, and the first to feature an ISO 800 mode. Before we get started on the review let's have a look at the headline features:

  • 6.0 megapixel sensor
  • 35-210mm (equiv.) F2.8-4.8 6x zoom lens
  • DIGIC II image processor and iSAPS technology
  • Accurate focusing with FlexiZone AF/AE
  • ISO 800 shooting
  • Widescreen (16:9) stills recording
  • 30fps VGA movie recording
  • 1cm macro mode
  • Full photographic control
  • 2.5" LCD with Night Display and Grid Line Display
  • Optional tele, wide and close up convertors
