"High Price ? Yes / Great Pics ? Defintely"4.5 starson by skhortonjr
Pros: Image stabilization !
Cons: Wonder how long until the 8mp model comes out ?
Summary: I have loved Canon cameras all my life both film and digital. Today I went out to Red Rock Canyon with the Powershot SD700 IS and with zero fuss took some of the best pictures I have ever taken before. The images were crisp and clear...probably with some help from the image stabilization. This camera truly makes you humble. I love the size...definitely small enough for your pants pocket or jacket. Plenty of priority modes for just about any occasion, and I really like the view finder for bright condtions when the LCD tends to be washed out by the sun. Very well built and feels solid in the hand thanks to its "compound curve" construction. When shopping I thought about the Canon Powershot S80 for the mega pixel advantage, however its somewhat "apples and oranges" when compared with the SD700 IS. If you want a camera thats small, unobtrusive, packed with advanced features and by the way...takes incredible pictures, there is only one choice: The SD700 IS.
