DCRP has recently published a review of the new Canon PowerShot SD700 IS/IXUS 800, featuring a 6.0 megapixels (CCD sensor), 4x Optical Zoom lens (35-140mm equivalent) with Canon’s Image Stabilizer, and a 2.5″ LCD screen.
“The PowerShot SD700 did a very nice job with our standard macro test subject. The colors look good, and the subject has Canon’s trademark “smooth” look to it. The camera’s custom white balance feature handled my apparently tricky studio lamps with ease…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. “
