I saw that when I bought my S400. If I remember, it was very nice. I would consider that camera. Canon'* produce a nice picture.

Good resoution too.

I have one, it was hard to get it to hook to my pc (prolly cause i didn't want to read the directions) but look at the cardomain for my 87, the ones of the rims and interior are done with the A70, and my shaky hand.... that was a day when it stopped raining for .02 seconds for me to snap those pics..... i love mine. you need one. get rechargable batteries.

I have been doing some research the past few weeks on the Canon A70, A80 and the G5. Here is a good link.

ya my family has a powershot digital elph s100. i believe it was one of the smallest ones to come out back in the day. canon OWNS cameras in my opinon and others. i was told by more than one person that the a70 was the best bang for your buck in the 3 megapixel range.

I would have liked to get the s400, but that was a little out of budget and i like the feel of the a70 better. our s100 is like the s400 and its kinda akward to handle in my opinion.

When a nice day comes around i might be a pic ***** again
