Great image quality at lower ISOs; manual exposure controls; quick nonflash performance.
Long flash recycle time; highest ISO settings very noisy.
Unless you plan to shoot primarily in low light, the Canon PowerShot A720 IS makes a solid, affordable camera that produces great-looking pictures.

My wife gave me this same model of camera for a gift and it takes great pictures. I now have two and use them both quite often. It is simple to operate and quick to respond to magnification and focus. With the different lenses that you can purchase seperately, there are unlimited possibilities which you can use this camera for. The memory cards can be found almost anywhere and the camera is very easy on the 2 AA batteries which it uses. The camera is small and fits in most pockets if that is how you wanted to carry it. Very well worth the price and very convenient.
If you want a great point and shoot camera, for the Canon brand, the powershot a720 is my top pick for 3 reasons.
1. I hated the newer cameras because you can't just walk into most surronding stores and find a already recharged or correct brand ion battery. So what do you do if your ion battery fails? And if you travel, you have to worry about a outlet. You should know from your cell phone experience, it's battery life may last for days, but when the bar is short- where's that displaced charger?
2. Great pictures in most situations(remember we're not looking for a pro camera that shines in low light or shoots in the dark).
3. Convienence- it's light and not as costly as expensive pro-cameras. I won't shed too much of a tear if a friend breaks it or a thief steals it. Of course I'll miss it because It takes professional pictures and may contain my wanted pics. Other than that (as of now) you can find it off of ebay used for around at most $200. Yes, this powershot is rated better than the powershot A620 and A800. So be careful when you buy a any electronic device. Just because it is higher in model number does not mean it's better.
We've enjoyed the auto aspect of this camera. Photos are of decent quality, with good shots of dogs at play and even the macro feature has worked well.
What we haven't enjoyed is the sticking shutter cover which can occur in some Powershot models whether carried in a case or a large pocket. And we certainly hate the fact that the LCD screen is not a flip-out screen. It is harder to see the LCD in sunlight; it is more difficult to keep it scratch free when it is hanging from one's wrist - a second strap holder would have been nice in order to hang from one's neck.
What I don't understand is why Canon doesn't listen to it's users and take the best from this camera and then improve upon it. People look for this model used because it set a bar which Canon reached and topped in some areas and fell short in others.
As good or better than I expected. Menu is not as straightforward as some others, but easy to learn. Great lens, stabilization works well, color quality is very good. Small enough for my hand but still easy to grip and much easier to pack than a super-zoom (which it almost is). 150 pics so far on two batteries and are not showing low yet, so battery life is good.
easy to use, pretty good low light capability, optical viewfinder (missing on most current models) versatile controls allowing more exposure control (also missing on all but the most expensive compact digital cameras now)ISO 1600 capable, but pictures get a bit "noisy" above ISO 400
