Canon PowerShot SX720 HS features:
Pocket this powerful, compact travel superzoom and be ready to shoot beautiful stills and movies you’ll want to share. A 40x zoom lens and advanced features help you capture precious moments in superb detail.
40x optical zoom
The Canon Powershot SX720 HS features an amazing 24-960mm reach from its 40x optical zoom lens. The wide 24mm side of the zoom range will enable you to shoot expansive landscapes, architecture, or group shots; while the 960mm super-telephoto side will enable close-ups of distant subjects such as wildlife.
Image stabilization (IS)
The Powershot SX720 HS features image stabilization across the whole zoom range, helping you get sharp images from distant subjects and low light conditions.
Zoom Framing Assist
Zoom Framing Assist offers a seek assist function that detects when you're panning and automatically zooms out to help, and when you stop stop panning the lens will automatically return to its original position. Zoom Framing Assist keeps your subject's face the same size in your frame no matter how they move. Tap the Zoom Framing Assist function button to detect your subject's face, and as your subject retreats and advances the camera will automatically zoom in and out so their face remains the same size. The feature has been further enhanced by letting you choose the subject's size: choices include face, upper body, whole body, manual or off for superior assistance and control. And, for even more convenience, all Zoom Framing Assist functions are also available when shooting video.
20.3 Megapixel sensor
A powerful 20.3 megapixel sensor along with Canon's DIGIC 6 image processor provides images with accurate colours, while light sensitivities form ISO 100 to 3200 enables you to capture stunning images in low light conditions.
Full HD video recording with Dynamic Video IS
A dedicated movie button captures stunning 1080p Full HD videos at a smooth 60 frames per second, while Dynamic Video IS offers 5-axis image stabilization to visually reduce camera shake.

Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity allows wireless media transfers to compatible mobile devices, social networking sites and Wi-Fi enabled computers. Wi-Fi also allows remote shooting from a compatible smartphone or tablet, while built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) allows quick and simple pairing to a compatible smart device.
