Canon PowerShot SX700 HS review

 

Canon sticks to the tried-and-true formula of more megapixels and more zoom for the PowerShot SX700 HS.

Along with its 30x zoom lens, the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS has fun and useful shooting options; built-in Wi-Fi with NFC; a high-resolution LCD; and excellent shooting performance and daylight photo and video quality.

Its low-light (high-ISO) photos could be better and while its battery life is noticeably better than that of its predecessor, you'll still want to keep an extra battery handy for all-day shooting. Canon could have done more with the camera's NFC.

If you're looking for more than just a simple snapshot experience from a compact zoom camera, the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS should be on your short list, despite a couple shortcomings.

Canon PowerShot SX700 HS

 

The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS has a 30x lens and a lot of features, but image quality suffers in low light.

Sharp lens. Controls noise through ISO 800. 2.5fps image capture. Creative Shot function. 30x zoom range. Sharp rear LCD. Wi-Fi. 1080p60 video.

Pricey. Detail suffers at very high ISOs. Limited control when using Creative Shot.

Canon CameraWindow also features a GPS logger. When enabled it keeps track of your movements via your phone's GPS, and it can add location data to photos by matching the time stamps with what you've shot. Other cameras in this class, including the...

Canon PowerShot SX700 HS Review

 

The PowerShot SX700 HS is the new flagship model in Canon's travel-zoom camera range. Despite compact 112.7 x 65.8 x 34.8 mm dimensions, Canon has managed to cram in a 30x zoom lens with a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-750mm. Thankfully...

There's a lot to like about Canon's latest flagship travel-zoom compact, but it doesn't offer quite enough features or performance to beat one of its key rivals and our current favourite, the Panasonic DMC-TZ60.

Canon SX700 HS Review

 

Their model names might not imply as much, but the coat pocket-sized Canon SX700 HS is, we're told, a logical successor to 2013's SX280 HS. Like that camera, the SX700HS is based around a speedy DIGIC 6 image processor, and aims to satisfy the needs of...

Available from March 2013, the Canon SX700 HS is priced at around US$350. Two color options are available: black or red.

Canon PowerShot SX700 HS

 

The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is Canon's flagship compact super-zoom, going head to head in a competitive market with models from Panasonic and Sony - the Lumix TZ60 / ZS40 and Cyber-shot HX50V / HX60V. The Canon has a 30x zoom with a 25-750mm...

30x optical zoom., Excellent stabilisation., Built-in Wifi with NFC., Manual focus with peaking., 1080p/60 HD video

Poor Battery life., Limit remote shooting features., No HD High speed movie mode., Inaccurate zoom magnification scale

Canon PowerShot SX700 HS

 

Easily pack 30x worth of optical zoom in your pocket

30x optical zoom ; Relatively easy to make manual adjustments ; Good overall image quality

Mode dial location a little awkward ; Some noticeable chromatic aberration ; Wi-Fi feature not great

Canon's PowerShot SX700 HS is a powerful little camera that can be used in a whole heap situations, from regular landscapes to long tele-zooms. It's a fun camera to use and well worth considering, especially if you want a camera for your travels.

Canon PowerShot SX700 HS review

 

As the compact camera market continues to shrink, the outlay of new product seems to be surfing a common theme: zoom is increasing in a war waged with fixed-lens smartphone cameras. The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS - the update to the earlier SX280 HS...

Point and shoot ease or full manual control, close-up macro mode, good image stabilisation, decent image quality

Limited autofocus options, no raw capture, 30x zoom limitations at longer extension, no touchscreen, more basic than Panasonic TZ60

With a launch price of £329 the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS might not be a budget buy, but it cleverly undercuts the main competition from Panasonic and Sony by enough to make us stand up and pay attention. It not-so-cleverly also sits behind them by...
