Canon PowerShot A700

Easy-to-use exposure and focus controls; 6X zoom range; solid image quality; usable ISO 800.

LCD washes out; sluggish flash recycling.

The Canon PowerShot A700's useful 6X zoom range, decent image quality, almost-acceptable ISO 800 performance, and full manual controls will catch the attention of photo enthusiasts and snapshooters.
