Effortlessly keep track
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.
Comfortable, steady shooting
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.
Excellent quality in any light
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.
Sharp results every time
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.
Always capture the moment
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.
