I want a Canon Powershot A720IS

I’ve been reading over the specs on the Canon PowerShot A720IS .

I have a Powershot A700 and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. The pictures are sharp. The A700 does a fantastic job in dim light where I can’t use a flash, like museums and churches. The videos are super. So why get a new camera?

Image Stabilization! Right after I bought my A700, Canon came out with an upgraded version that had image stabilization. Isn’t that always the way??

Well, I have a pretty steady hand so no problem, right? Wrong!

We have done a lot of traveling since I got my camera and I can’t tell you how many of the places we visited have been WINDY. It is HARD holding a camera steady in wind so strong it could knock me over if I weighed a few pounds less.

The Canon PowerShot A720IS has a lot of the same features as my A700. Two that are very important to me are a viewfinder and 6X optical zoom. An additional bonus is that the A720IS will work with the new 4 GB memory cards which means carrying around less memory cards and swapping them less often.

With my daughter already laying claim to my A700, I guess it’s time to go out and buy that new Canon PowerShot A720IS .
