Canon Digital IXUS 700 / Powershot SD500

 

The Canon Digital IXUS 700 / SD500 features a Canon 3x optical zoom lens, a 7.2 megapixel sensor, and a large 2" screen (the newer IXUS 750 features a 2.5" screen). The IXUS 700 is available from around £275 | $396, making the IXUS 700 decent value for...

Very good colour ; Very good image quality (exposure / auto white balance good) ; Custom white balance ; Good movie modes ; Quick switch on time, shutter response and shot to shot time ; My Colours' adds some fun and potentially useful creative...

The 7 megapixel Canon Digital IXUS 700 is a very good digital camera. The easy to use camera is capable of very good results, although there is some purple fringing and images are slightly soft. The camera gives you a lot of options, such as 'my...

Canon Ixus 700

 

The Ixus range of compact digital cameras by Canon, have long been the companies benchmark for style and convenience whilst still providing excellent image quality. The new Canon Ixus 700 has a lot to live up to, in this review I hope to discover...

Images are sharp and full of detail; The camera is quick and responsive; Controls are very well designed; The screen is very clear, even in bright light; Build quality; The automatic white balance is very accurate; Very simple to operate

Start-up isn’t the quickest but is still acceptable

The Canon Ixus 700 is capable of producing some stunning results. The images produced by this camera contain tons of detail, natural colour and a good tonal range. What little evidence of chromatic aberration there is is very well controlled, and will...

Canon - Digital IXUS 700

 

The Digital IXUS 700 offers a whopping 7.1 megapixels; that's a resolution of 3,072 x 2,304 pixels. If you belong to the 'more is better' brigade, you'll be slavering at this thought, but take note that ...

Canon's Digital IXUS 700 is another step forward for the company, and another good advance. Canon needs to be more generous with its bundled SD cards, though, and we'd like to see some effort put into increasing optical zoom as well as overall image...

Canon Digital IXUS 700

 

There's a lot on offer here for beginners and even for enthusiasts looking for a second snapshot camera. However, those seven megapixels don't quite make this camera a star in the all-important image quality department and there are too many quirks for fu

Optical viewfinder, very easy to use

Image quality a little lower than expected

The small and rugged Canon Digital IXUS 700 is a good companion for capturing everyday mementos, though image quality may disappoint more demanding photographers.

Canon PowerShot SD500 Digital Elph

 

Quick performer. Excellent image quality. Unique My Color feature. Good ergonomics. Sleek and attractive

Macro mode did not produce good results. Flash had some problems in backlit situations

The SD500 is a versatile, accurate, fun 7MP compact camera that performed very well on our tests and will appeal to a broad section of shooters. We like it so much, we've awarded it our Editors' Choice.

Canon Powershot SD500 Digital Elph Camera

 

The $500 Canon PowerShot SD500 Digital Elph is so small it fits easily in just about any pocket, leaving you no excuse for not having a camera handy when those once-in-a-lifetime baby/puppy/soccer shots happen. The resulting photos weren't our taste...

Small size Rugged body

Image quality isn't tops

The SD500's weakness is its image quality. The photos looked good overall, but in our taste tests they didn't score as well as some other compact point-and-shoots in the same price range. For example, the Fujifilm F10 significantly outscored the SD500...
