Canon PowerShot A70
The A70's display shows a lot of information you rarely see on inexpensive cameras.
Alkaline batteries last a surprisingly long time in the A70, but we still recommend buying nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) rechargeables for the longest life.
Though displaying a good dynamic range and nicely saturated colors, the A70 tends to render reds slightly off-hue.
The A70's close-ups come out crisp, detailed, and evenly exposed.
Noise becomes apparent in the A70's photos starting with the ISO 100 setting.
