You notice the lack of optical viewfinder. The 2.5" LCD will serve the primary duty. We will go through all the settings next.
The S700 has typical lens relative to aperture f/stop comparing to others in this price range. However, you really have two f/stop settings. In wide angle mode- 2.8 or 7.1f; Tele mode- 4.9 or 12.4 f. While shutter speeds can be adjusted from 8s, 6, 4, 3, 2, 1.5 1, 0.7, 0.5, 1/3, 1/4, 1/6, 1/8, 1/10 to 1/15, 1/20, 1/30, 1/60, 1/90 to 1/1500s. In a nutshell, this is better than none, at least it provides some of your creative settings other than the pre-programmed modes. These settings are available only in manual mode.
White balance features can only be accessed using Manual Mode, surprisingly I could not locate this from the manual. Here you can select Auto, Sun, Cloud, Fluorescent, Tungsten and "Measure". In addition, the over/under exposure bar is displayed on the LCD screen; center being dead on, left side is under and right side is over exposed according to the sensor. Since, there is no mentioned in the manual, I could only assume the bar indicator is in 1/3 f/stop increment.
Samsung guarantees up to 2GB SD memory storage; when I installed/inserted a 4GB SD card, "memory full" warning flashes telling me it is a "no go".
