“The Canon PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH starts up and extends its lens extremely quickly in just 0.8 seconds. The SD700 IS normally takes about 1/2 second to focus at wide-angle and 2/3 to 1 second at telephoto. Low-light focusing was excellent and the camera could even lock focus with the AF-assist beam off.Overall noise levels were low and acceptable till ISO 400. Despite noise levels slightly higher than on the S3 IS I just reviewed, the Canon PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH has a one stop advantage over the SD550 in terms of noise. As for overall chromatic aberration level (not just from the shots above), it was still fairly high.”
