Features

65x Optical Zoom

Imagine having the power to capture birds flying in the distance on your walks, shoot architectural details atop a skyscraper and see the expression on an athlete's face from up in the stands – all from a compact camera with a built-in lens. Lightweight with superb controllability, the 65x Optical Zoom lens on the PowerShot SX70 HS camera is both a marvel of optical engineering and a Genuine Canon Lens, which means that the images you capture with it will be beautifully natural and true to life – whether you're shooting highly detailed and close-up macro shots, at the wide-angle end or at the extreme telephoto end.

* From the end of the lens, wide-angle end only.



Dual Sensing IS

Trust the advanced technology of Dual Sensing IS to deliver reliable image stabilization, even at the furthest reaches of the PowerShot SX70 HS camera's telephoto lens. By helping to correct unwanted shaking from accidental camera or body movement, the PowerShot SX70 HS can produce sharp and clear images.

20.3 Megapixel* CMOS Sensor

The PowerShot SX70 HS camera features a 20.3 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor for powerful imaging performance. Utilizing a sophisticated light-capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for high ISO capture with reduced noise, delivering clear, detailed results even in low light. It also enables fast continuous shooting and fast autofocus for high-speed performance that helps you capture important moments.

DIGIC 8 Image Processor

The PowerShot SX70 HS camera features the DIGIC 8 Image Processor, which helps improve autofocus performance, enables you to shoot 4K UHD 30p video and aids with many other advanced features. It comes with an improved Auto Lighting Optimizer, which helps minimize blown-out areas by maintaining color and detail in the bright parts of a photo. When set to High, it can even smooth the transitions between colors, helping you take impressively lifelike sunrise and sunset photos.

* Image processing may cause a decrease in the number of pixels.

Capture 4K videos^ at a frame rate of up to 30 fps for super-high definition, cinematic results. Recording at almost four times the resolution of Full HD, you can see your subject in stunning clarity. Beautiful time-lapse videos can also be created in 4K simply and easily with the dedicated Time-lapse Movie mode. You can also harness the power of 4K frame cropping^^ to extract still images from your video recordings. All of this is possible in-camera without the need for additional software.

Certain images and effects are simulated.



^ Shooting takes place by cropping pixels from the center of the sensor.

^^ Saving a still image from a single movie frame may not result in the same image quality as a normal still image. Still image aspect ratio is 16:9. When trimming, the images will be cropped, and the angle of view is smaller.

In certain situations, like a bright sunny day, a viewfinder is preferable to a screen. The built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder on the PowerShot SX70 HS camera features approximately 2,360,000 dots so you can see high amounts of detail in what you're capturing. Its Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology offers high-contrast, high-color images that can help properly display the scene you want to capture.

^^^ In certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted. Therefore, be sure to use GPS in accordance with the laws and regulations of your country or region. Be particularly careful when traveling outside your home country. As a signal is received from GPS satellites, take sufficient measures when using in locations where the use of electronics is regulated.

It is necessary to download and install Canon's Image Transfer Utility 2. Connect the camera and computer each to your home network, and only the camera must be paired with ITU2 the first time.

It's easy to capture clear, steady images with the PowerShot SX70 HS camera, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because the camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS, with up to 5 stops provided for incredibly stable results. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation – allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal (Still Image) IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod IS modes. New icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you're shooting still images or video.

With autofocus tracking on to help keep your shots sharp, you can maintain the speed and shoot at up to 10.0 fps – ideal for sports, wildlife, moving subjects or anything unpredictable.

The Zoom Framing Assist function makes it easy to track a moving subject when the zoom lens is fully extended. Simply press and hold the Zoom Framing Assist button and the camera will automatically zoom out to help you locate your subject. Release the button to return the lens to its original zoom position, intelligently keeping the subject in focus until you're ready to capture the perfect close-up moment. And with the Zoom Framing Assist Lock, the camera will use image stabilization techniques to lock onto and automatically track a subject, keeping them in the center of the frame until you're ready to capture the ideal close-up shot.

Canon's incredible legacy of EOS interchangeable lens cameras has been serving image-makers for decades. Equipped with various features such as a rubber-coated grip to allow easy access to controls, and a large eye-cup to make it easy to obtain a sense of engagement through the viewfinder, the camera's design allows you to handle the PowerShot SX70 HS like you would for a classic Canon DSLR camera.
