The Canon PowerShot SX70 HS Bridge Camera is Canon’s most powerful SuperZoom in the bridge range, also inheriting the looks and feel of an all-in-one DSLR. Boasting a powerful 20.3 MP 1/2.3 type Back-Illuminated CMOS sensor combined with a DIGIC 8 Image Processor to create astonishing image quality, as well as 4K UHD video. The Canon SX70 HS allows you to frame and capture your subject from a distance with its huge 65x Optical Zoom, or an extended ZoomPlus of 130x - offering a reliable, and fast autofocus even in low light conditions.
Other powerful features and specs of this beauty include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi compatibility between the camera and phone/pc – allowing you to transfer your files within seconds; a lens construction that utilises 15 elements in 11 groups, that includes 3 UD lenses and 1 double-sided aspherical lens; a maximum of approx. 10 fps continuous shooting in One Shot AF; a shutter speed from 15 – 1/2000s; built-in Intelligent Image Stabilisation with Dual Sensing IS plus 5-axis Advanced Dynamic IS and a large 3” Vari-Angle LCD monitor.
Zoom into the exquisite detail of distant wildlife. Capture stunning ultra-wide landscapes with this hugely versatile and gifted 65x Wi-Fi bridge camera, which combines fun with expert control.
Capture a huge range of beautiful shots. With an incredible 65x zoom and 21mm ultra-wide angle you can shoot everything from exceptionally detailed long range close ups of wildlife to impressive landscapes with the innovative Canon SX70 HS.
It’s simple to keep track of distant subjects at high zoom. Simply press a button and Zoom Framing Assist quickly zooms the camera out of the scene - so you can relocate your subject - zooming back the moment it’s released. Improved Auto Mode automatically zooms out when the subject starts to leave the frame and helps you keep your subject at a preset size.
Designed with your comfort in mind, you can enjoy steadier shots even at full zoom and shoot comfortably for longer periods thanks to a refined ergonomic grip. An Electronic Viewfinder offers SLR-like handling and lets you see clearly in very bright conditions. Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) ensures fast, silent focus and zooming.
Day or night your images will be just as you remember them. Canon’s HS System – with DIGIC 8 and a 20.3 MP CMOS sensor - gives you stunning image quality and excels in low light. So it’s easy to capture the real atmosphere of the moment without using flash or a tripod.
There’s no need to worry about camera shake ruining your results thanks to an intelligent optical Image Stabilizer. This Canon SX70 HS automatically adapts and ensures sharp, detailed photos even if you’re shooting at full zoom or handheld in low light. Plus your movies will be spectacularly steady thanks to 5-axis Enhanced Dynamic IS.
Life is fleeting. Don’t miss a single precious moment and capture stunning split second action with super-responsive operation and sustained high-speed continuous shooting - now at 10 fps in One Shot AF.
