Canon PowerShot SX70 HS


The Canon PowerShot SX70 HS captures views ranging from ultra-wide to extreme telephoto. It's a solid camera for wildlife observers, families, and shutterbugs in search of a lightweight bridge model.

65x zoom lens. Vari-angle LCD. Excellent EVF. 10fps bursts. Raw image capture. 4K video with mic input. Wi-Fi. Strong ergonomics.

Not great in dim light. Omits accessory shoe and 24fps video. 4K not available in all modes. Not a good choice for fast action.

Bottom Line: The Canon PowerShot SX70 HS captures views ranging from ultra-wide to extreme telephoto. It's a solid camera for wildlife observers, families, and shutterbugs in search of a lightweight bridge model.

Canon SX70 Review


After almost four years on the market, Canon has announced the successor to the popular SX60 superzoom, in the aptly named Canon PowerShot SX70 HS. The SX70 boasts the same 21 - 1,365mm equivalent 65x optical zoom lens as its predecessor, however...

Canon Powershot SX70 HS review


A bridge camera well suited to snapping your travels

65x zoom lens ; Manual control ; Raw format shooting ; Good viewfinder

Screen not touch-sensitive ; low light shooting poor ; Detail not great at wide-angle

A well-featured and solid bridge camera that makes sense as a travel camera – just don’t rely on it for low light

Canon PowerShot SX70 HS review


Feature-filled superzoom with grand aspirations

Great zoom range with 21mm (equiv.) start ; Lovely handling ; Effective image stabilisation ; Decent 4K video results ; Lightweight body ; Competent AF system

No touchscreen ; Build quality feels cheap ; Wideangle performance isn’t great ; Lack of slow-motion video options ; Styles not possible in raw ; No USB charging

With a 1/2.3-inch sensor at its heart, only so much should be expected of the SX70 HS’s image quality. That said, pleasing results at mid-range focal lengths, together with a lovely electronic viewfinder, effective image stabilisation, good autofocus...

Great camera for wifi/Bluetooth

Great camera pity about . . . . .


I only bought the PowerShot SX70 HS camera to replace my canon Eos 1300, which I found rather complex to learn and operate. I found it really easy to use, once I'd dumped the meaningless so called ‘manual', and turned to the Cannon online support and...
