About this item

Incomparable Luxury, Unparalleled Performance

The PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH sets a new standard. The first Digital ELPH equipped with Canon's Image Stabilizer technology, its sleek, tri-color body is loaded with high-end features that make taking great pictures more stylish and convenient than ever.

Get close, stay steady: Engineered with Canon's sophisticated Image Stabilizer technology, the SD700 IS Digital ELPH gives you the "shake-free" performance that makes your pictures sharp and clear. No matter how close you zoom in, the SD700 IS Digital ELPH keeps everything stable. All you have to think about is your subject.

High performance, high style: This is a camera that could make it on looks alone. But wait until you see its performance. The 4x optical zoom brings you in for intimate close-ups. The 6.0 megapixel CCD produces images of impressive quality with resolution that lets you create big prints.

Canon innovation enhances your experience: The PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH features new ISO 800 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater flexibility for shooting.

Canon technology maximizes quality and performance: Canon's DIGIC II Image Processor is designed to improve processing speed and image quality, so DIGIC II provides markedly faster startup, autofocus and playback, plus it assures that every image is more colorfully vibrant.

iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC II Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

Shoot and view wide images: The PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH includes a widescreen resolution option, producing images and film clips that are perfect for your widescreen TV or computer monitor.

Superior movie quality: Fast Frame Rate Movie Mode allows you to record extremely smooth, full-motion movie clips for up to 1 minute long in QVGA at 60 fps (320 x 240 pixels). With ahighly flexible movie mode, you can create the movie that's perfect for any application.

Select from VGA (640 x 480 pixels) and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels) withframe rates of 30 fps and 15 fps for recording up to 1 hour or 1GB. Plus CompactMovie Mode (QQVGA; 160 x 120 pixels) records at 15 fps for up to 3 minutes.
