Canon PowerShot SD500 / Digital IXUS 700 announcement clippings

Efficient and responsive, the Digital IXUS 700 is powered by a Canon DIGIC II processor. Linking all key camera functions, DIGIC II drives fast auto-focus, outstanding camera performance, quick start-up times and first-class image quality. Like a hidden photographer's assistant, iSAPS uses DIGIC II's power to analyse the scene and optimise key camera settings even before the shutter release is pressed. 14 shooting modes including 9 scene modes combine with a 9-point auto-focus system (AiAF) to deliver consistently brilliant results in every situation.
