'At ISO 3,200 the grain pattern and chroma noise become quite prominent in the darker areas, and at ISO 6,400, chroma noise and the effects of heavy noise reduction obliterate much of the finer details.'
'broad, functional feature set'
'The A700's ISO 6400 setting isn't great -- there's a drop in exposure and color, and the whole image is pretty mottled.'
'The three apps are poorly integrated, and are a mishmash of the overly simple and overly complex.'
'This system takes several readings across the frame, then settles on a proper exposure based on a digital evaluation that can recognize backlighting and other problematic lighting conditions.'
'It's not the most user friendly manual out there'
'Other important new additions include the ability to adjust ISO in increments of one-third stop; an ISO readout in the viewfinder, so you don't have to consult the LCD to change the ISO; an optional slower burst speed, which permits more shots in a single burst;'
'When I shot close up with a wide lens and the pop-up flash, the lens cast a very noticeable shadow at the bottom of the frame.'
'its resolution isn't stunning.'
'The camera is PictBridge-enabled for direct printing to compatible photo printers.'
'The $1500 price tag for just the body of this 8.2-megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera puts it out of the reach of most amateurs'
