  • It features six-megapixel resolution, ISO equivalent speed settings from 80 to 800, a 4x zoom lens with true optical image stabilization, a bright and large 2.5-inch, 173,000-pixel wide viewing angle color LCD screen plus a real-image optical viewfinder.

    The SD700’s Optical Image Stabilization provides up to three stops of camera shake correction in shutter speed equivalent. When combined with the top ISO rating equivalent of 800, its new six-megapixel image sensor that further reduces image noise and the fast f/2.8 4X optical zoom lens (35-140mm equivalent), the odds of taking a shaken or blurred image are dramatically reduced. Both the Image Stabilizer and the 4X optical zoom are firsts for the Digital ELPH series.

    The new Digital ELPH cameras have many of the latest advances in Canon technology including the proprietary DIGIC II imaging processor. The processor enhances picture definition, vibrancy, and quality, while helping increase the speed of the cameras’ startup, autofocus, shutter response, playback, and image processing speed while reducing power consumption by 35 percent compared to the original DIGIC chip.

    Consumers benefit from accelerated image transfer speed of a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port.

    All of the new models offer a new widescreen 16:9 ratio resolution setting that facilitates creating panoramic-style prints. Additionally, all new PowerShot models support 23 languages (now including Thai and Arabic). The new cameras have an improved direct printing function that permits greater flexibility in print settings, including a face brightener setting for backlit photos.

    Canon also enhanced the ‘My Colors’ mode found in the new PowerShot line. Where previously, users could only enable ‘My Colors’ while shooting, the current iteration permits captured images to be retouched as well, without the need for special software applications or tools.

    Available My Color playback modes include Vivid Blue, Vivid Green, and Vivid Red; lighter and darker skin tones, as well as options for creating black & white, sepia, neutral and positive film effects.

    For those who consider the ocean depths part of the Digital Elph camera line’s “go anywhere” promise, Canon offers individual optional waterproof housing systems. With a depth rating of 40m/130 feet for the PowerShot SD600, SD630 and the SD700 Digital ELPH cameras, these models are a natural choice for underwater photo enthusiasts, SCUBA divers and even snorkelers.

    Like all PowerShot digital cameras, these new Digital ELPHs work seamlessly with Canon’s petite SELPHY Compact Photo Printers – an essential PowerShot accessory.

    The Canon PowerShot SD700 IS is stylish and easy to use, and produces very good to excellent image quality. The addition of optical image stabilizer technology makes it a perfect easy-to-use take-anywhere ultra compact digital camera.
