The A710IS has been replaced by numerous A-series models. Check out the A2100IS for a good alternative. Here's what we first wrote about the A70 when it came out:

The A710 IS is Canon's first point-and-shoot to offer image stabilization, for reducing jitters and blur in deep zoom photos. When Canon debuted the A700, the 6x optical zoom was a new frontier for point-and-shoot cameras. It was very popular, but it wasn't quite perfect. Though not as susceptible to shaking and jittering as smaller, less sturdy cameras, the A700's larger-than-average zoom still could have used some support. Well, with the A710 IS, Canon has done just that, bringing back the popular feature set and design fo the A700, while adding advanced image stabilization technology. The IS, the fantastic 7.1 megapixel sensor and ability to take 16:9, wide-aspect still photos, make the A710 IS a truly superior camera for casual users looking for some easy-to-use power.
