We will start with the new PowerShot A720IS the successor of the well known A710IS. The A710IS was quite popular cause it was offering premium image quality (even with optical stabilization) and by the fair price. Actually there was no too much room for improvements on this camera, optical sensor now has 8.0 Megapixels, software of the camera suffers few additions like totally hip technology of Face Detection. Also the manufacturer added his latest imaging processor to this camera. As the result of using latest generation DIGIC III image processor, new camera is a bit faster a bit quicker on controls and have increased ISO sensitivity – resulted by better color noise reduction in DIGIC III.
