The Canon PowerShot SX70 HS is the ultimate photographic all-rounder. Capable of shooting landscapes, portraits, sports, macro and 4K video, it is the ideal choice for vloggers, holiday makers, families and photography enthusiasts who want DSLR image quality without the need to change lenses.
20.3 Megapixel Sensor
Bright, vivid photos are captured via its improved 20.3 megapixel sensor. With 25% more megapixels than the previous generation, the SX70 ensures even the smallest details are delivered faithfully, giving you the freedom to print your shots at larger sizes without compromising on image quality.
4K Video Recording & Time-Lapse
4K video recording and 4K time-lapse functionality delivers better than broadcast resolution footage. With four times the resolution of Full HD videos looks razor sharp on a 4K television, showing an incredible amount of detail and enhanced creative flexibility when editing your footage.
65x Optical Zoom
Complementing the sensor is an impressive 65x Optical zoom lens that delivers a 35mm focal equivalent of 21-1365mm. Making it easy to bring far away objects up close, it is at the heart of what makes this camera such a versatile creative tool.
21mm-2730mm Focal Length Equivalent
The option of a 130x zoom plus mode furthers enhances your creative potential. Delivering the equivalent of a 21-2730mm focal length, the enhanced zoom function is great for safaris and wildlife photography, ensuring you can get up close with your subject without disturbing their natural habitat.
5-Stop Image Stabilisation
Built-in Image Stabilisation is a must with a lens that offers this kind of magnification. The SX70 doesn’t disappoint in this regard. Its built-in stabilisation system offers a 5-stop advantage allowing you to take better pictures in low light and at full zoom lengths.
The IS system also works when shooting video, offering a 3 stop benefit to make it easy for vloggers and YouTube creators to shoot smooth, cinematic footage without a video tripod or steady cam.
Powerful DIGIC 8 Image Processor
The SX70 HS is driven by the advanced DIGIC 8 image processor from the flagship Canon EOS R mirrorless range. Its immense speed equips you with the ability to shoot at 10fps in burst mode, a perfect combination in conjunction with the super telephoto lens for sports and wildlife photography.
Image composition is intuitive with the choice of either a sharp 2.36-million dot high definition electronic viewfinder, or a bright 3-inch LCD screen on the back. The much loved vari-angle design of the rear screen is perfect for vloggers, allowing the screen to be flipped 180° to face you when vlogging or shooting selfies. Its practical design also takes the guess work from shooting high and low angles, enabling you to tilt the screen according to your shooting scenario.
Bluetooth & Wi-Fi Connectivity
With built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology, sharing photos and videos with the SX70 is incredibly easy, even on the go. The CANON iMAGE Gateway allows you to share content from the camera directly to social media. Connect to iOS and Android devices using the Canon Camera Connect app. Once the connection is established the Camera Connect app automatically turns on and you can immediately start sharing.
Wireless Remote Shooting
With the Camera Connect App installed on a compatible mobile device, you can see exactly what you are shooting via your smartphone. The self-timer and shutter can also be accessed remotely on your phone, allowing you to set up picture perfect selfies and compose group shots with ease.
