I guess Canon evolved the SX200 series cameras as far as they could take them; the SX280 was a great travel / pocket camera; albeit one you needed a spare battery for. The SX700 loses features from the SX280 - most painfully for me a reduced ISO range and for travelling around and knowing where you took your photo its disappointing to lose the GPS feature. In exchange for those features you gain 4megapixels with the SX700 having 16 megapixels and an extra 10x of zoom taking it to 30x and to try and manage that extra zoom the image stabilisation has been improved. After the new zoom the next big improvement is the new screen on the back has twice the resolution so it looks more clear; and the menus look better. The battery live is also still improved; though the SX700 still doesn't charge via USB needing a cumbersome charger to go on holiday with you.

The zoom / Lens
------------
In my first city centre based experiments with the camera I found the camera nice in the hand. The button layout is new but the movie button is better on the top than the back. There is a snap out of zoom button to help you frame your photos; press it the SX700 zooms back and shows a box where your zoom was; release it and it snaps back; excellent for tracking moving objects. That 30x zoom does come at a price though; I have steady hands but zoomed out to 30x its very difficult to hold the camera steady; and for truly sharp images you need a tripod; back at 20x its much easier to control the camera. The pictures modes are still there from the SX280; including my favourite miniature mode (which is also available in the video.)

Still Photos
----------------
The drop in ISO / raise in mega pixels has resulted in mostly noisier photos which is a step backwards.

I have had the sx220, sx280 and now the sx700. Yes im a superzoom compact junkie! The first things to strike me as standout differences between the sx280 and the sx700 is the flash lock slider switch on the left side of the camera. Im not really sure what the point of this is. When im program mode you cannot make any changes to the flash settings without sliding the switch to open the flash. Personally I don't like this, its one extra step in making your settings with no benefit that I can personally see. Then there is the on/off switch. The classic position for canon on these pocket zooms has been to place the on/off switch on the far right of the top, but now its been replaced by the video record button which used to be on the back of the camera. So the on/off switch is now to the left of the record button and the zoom slider. I kept finding myself starting a recording when I meant to switch the camera off. I guess you get used to it after a while but for now if you're a long canon user you will find yourself doing this too. The other thing that hits me is how chunky the `pocket' zoom is becoming. Noticeably wider (thicker) with a larger lens ring this no longer fits smoothly into tight jeans. The sx280 does manage that but the sx700 is no longer what I think of a true pocket camera, though of course it will fit into loose trousers or a handbag no problem. Online sample photos did seem show the new 16 megapixel sensor producing sharper and cleaner images compared to the older 12 megapixel sensor and I found this was indeed the case. The difference was actually much more than I expected, in a/b comparisons to my sx280 it was certainly a stepup, making the sx280 look a little blurry in comparison.Read more ›

Photos are great and there are many features to use. Its just one step behind the big professional cameras.
It can fit in any pocket, battery life is really good, and its a perfect camera on the go!

Really happy with it. I found it hard to work out what did what so I went on line for the manuel and since then so much easier to use. Great features that will find me wanting to take more photos. Small enough to put in a small hand bag. What can I really say I wished I had this camera a long time ago

The GOOD:
-Image quality, it has built in contrast enhancer which does a very good job. Exposures are accurate in most cases. Images taken at high ISO are noisy though.
-Pop-up flash. Does a brilliant job in harsh sunlight as a shadow fill-in (distance to subject must of course not be huge, 2-4 metres I would say) and in general I'm impressed with the capabilities of this small flash and how good the camera processes images taken with flash.
-Tv, Av, M modes!
-Starts quick
-Quick and accurate autofocus (in good lighting - in poor lighting it struggles a bit just like all its competitors)
-Good body shape, durable, reasonable weight and it also grips well.
-Zoooooom! 30x Optical, up to 60x digital zoom.
-Stabilisation works excellent, steady shot at 1/20 sec whilst heavy zooming (it won't of course freeze motion, just your handshake). It's even better when shooting video, you can walk with the camera and video looks like you used a steady-cam. In video mode I think the camera crops the frame a bit and uses built-in software to compensate the handshake.
-Bright, large and high quality LCD screen.

The BAD
- No HDR. No built-in GPS. No RAW. - not a big deal for me but some may find it important.
- No touchscreen = more buttons,
- No built-in panorama mode. I don't want to spend additional time stitching photos in post. Here's Canon's biggest fail.
-16MP, this one may be controversial :) Use 16mp if you want to fill up your HDD in a few months. No one needs 16MP unless want to print 90"x60". I shoot weddings at 8MP.
-Canon Camera Window software. Rubbish. When shooting remotely you may only zoom in/out and release shutter and nothing else. You cannot re-focus, you can change NOTHING in-camera remotely (i.e.
