“It’s a camera designed to extend Canon’s superiority in areas like autofocus and high-ISO image quality, to shore up areas of competitive weakness such as the battery system and camera configuration and to incorporate emerging features like Live View and remote camera access, but do these things better than they’ve been done before in the digital SLR arena. And while they were at it, Canon opted to increase the EOS-1D Mark III’s resolution and frame rate too, relative to the EOS-1D Mark II N it replaces.”

“With the L700 Samsung has produced the very definition of an average 3x zoom digital compact camera. It has no real weak points apart from its poor low-light focusing and over-exposure in bright light, but little about it stands out either. It is well made, performs adequately, has all the features and options you really need and takes reasonably good pictures.”

“Though it’s not the flashiest or slimmest model on the market, the Casio EXILIM EX-Z700 has a lot going for it. With a 7.2 megapixel sensor, a fairly standard 3x zoom (38-114mm equivalent focal range), and a 2.7-inch LCD, the Casio EX-Z700 doesn’t break any new ground, but it is a good little camera.”
