Canon SD700 IS Review at DCResource

Canon Digital IXUS 800 ISDCResource have published their review of the SD700 IS (also known as the Canon Digital IXUS 800 IS), a 6 megapixel camera with an image stabilized 4x zoom lens (first time on an IXUS camera).

“The PowerShot SD700 is a compact and very stylish camera. It’s made almost entirely of metal, and it feels nice and solid. The camera is easy to hold and operate, though some of the buttons on the back of the camera could be larger. The SD700 gives you a little more zoom than your typical ultra-compact, with a 4X lens instead of the usual 3X. This is Canon’s first ultra-compact with optical image stabilization, and it works well during my time with the camera. While it won’t work miracles, the OIS system will make your photos sharper and movies steadier. The SD700 also features a large and sharp 2.5” LCD display that’s easily visible in low light. Thankfully Canon didn’t dump the optical viewfinder on this camera—that feature seems to be going the way of the dinosaur in the ultra-compact class.”
