The three megapixel PowerShot A70 and two megapixel PowerShotA60 were introduced thisyear just in time for the Photo Marketing Association (PMA 2003) tradeshow in Las Vegas. The PowerShot 'A-series' are Canon's entry-level digitalcameras, the A60 and...

Anyone who has followed Canon's line of PowerShot digital cameras can't help but see the similarities between the A70 and the PowerShot G1 (the original 'G'). The A70 is such an easy to use camera you can drop it into the hand of a pure beginner and...

Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera (Canon-8400A001)

 

A bargain-priced camera that tries to do it all--and mostly succeeds. It's ideal for situations where flexibility is more important than high resolution.

Canon PowerShot A70 review

 

Canon PowerShot A70

Broad feature set for the money; speedy and efficient performance; accepts accessory lenses.

Flimsy-feeling CompactFlash compartment cover; distracting reflective frame around LCD.

Even though the A70 is targeted at the snapshot crowd, enthusiasts will love the Canon's advanced features--and price.
