Canon PowerShot A720 IS 8Mp compact camera

 

Canon recently added two models with 6x optical zoom to the top of its vast and successful 'A' series, PowerShot A650 IS and its younger sibling, the PowerShot A720 IS. The Canon PowerShot A720 IS is priced at £179.

Except for high noise levels (which can be reduced by sticking to lower ISOs), the image quality is impressive. The features list is long and includes usable functions, so it may appear that Canon has a winner on its hands. Well, almost. The RRP of...

Great technology becomes affordable with the Canon PowerShot A720 IS. Packed with innovative features, advanced shooting options and the ability to deliver great results with ease.

Every possible shooting scenario is covered by an extensive range of shooting modes, 19 in total, giving superb results shot after shot. My Colours gives you the opportunity to perform amazing colour alterations on still images and movies.

Canon Powershot A720 IS

 

Bridge cameras are usually aimed at the keen enthusiasts that don't want to lug around a DSLR and loads of lenses. The powershot A series is a low specification version of the bridge camera. However, the Powershot A720 IS has 8Mp and a 6x zoom stuffed...

Good macro; Decent noise results; Manual focus; Lens adapters

Canon Powershot A720 IS

 

I like the Canon Powershot A720 IS a lot. Looking at its price tag I think it is a really good buy. It may not be pocket sized, but picture quality is more or less spot on and there are a number of extra features included. The extra length of the lens...

Picture quality - viewfinder - value for money - red eye correction tool

Slow flash recycle times

"If you would like a digital camera with manual controls, extra lens length, image stabilisation, a viewfinder and a fairly low price then it could be the Canon Powershot A720 IS. There is a lot built into the camera for the money and the picture...

Sticking with the age old saying 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' (and the even older trend of opening products reviews with that phrase), Canon has m...

Sharp pictures, great colour, fast operation, manual features

Some haloing and chromatic aberration, shots noisy at higher ISO levels

Another home run for Canon, while the PowerShot A720 IS isn't perfect it is pretty close and it's combination of sharp, vibrant pictures, speedy operation and manual shooting modes is sure to please a variety of consumers.
