I am considering getteing a canon SD 700 camera but noticed in the reviews that they do not include a scene mode for Sunsets. I have used this many times in my old Nikon 880 with great results. Does anyone know why they would not include this poplular type of scene mode or am I missing something.?

I generally don't use very many of the dedicated scene modes. That mode may well be on this camera but simply called something else. Basically, all this mode does is attempt to compensate your overall exposure for the framing of a brightly lit setting sun, which would otherwise result in a very dark image. You can pretty much duplicate this mode via a quick and simple adjustment of your "+/-" exposure metering. Sunsets are always tricking even with such a dedicated "Sunset" mode, that it is a good idea to bracket anyway with a few shotsvia the "+/-" compensation dial. You will often get several varying shots that are mood different but quite nice.

I always liked the Nikon susnset mode. It always produced nice photos. Thanks for the alternate way of doing it
