Canon PowerShot SX720 HS puts more zoom in your pocket


Canon’s pocket-sized PowerShot SX700 HS that is teeming with features is set to be available in the market next month.

Canon is ready to release its small but powerful snapper which it named as PowerShot SX700 HS. The HS boasts of a 30x, f3.2-6.9, 25-750mm lens in compact body that could easily fit in a jacket pocket. Same can be said with the SX710 HS. The SX720 HS enables you to zoom in further with its new 40x, f3.3-6.9, 24-960mm lens, and like the two aforementioned variants it could also fit in a pocket.

With no pun intended the camera comes with a dimensions of 4.3 by 2.5 by 1.41 inches (109.7 by 63.8 by 35.7mm) and weighs just 9.5 ounces (270 grams). This is indeed impressive for a camera that comes with a powerful magnification feature.

Tipped to be available in March, the camera is expected to carry a price sticker of $380. The prices of the camera in Australia and the United Kingdom were not yet disclosed but it’s roughly estimated at prices of AU$530 or £265.

The HS is small thanks to Hi-UD (ultralow-dispersion optical glass), and three aspheric lens elements for being able to sustain high picture quality while raising the zoom range to 40x. This is significant since it enables you to capture high-quality images while taking group shots, landscapes, portraits birding, and sports.

The camera also features a 3-inch high-resolution screen panel display, built-in Wi-Fi and NFC for wireless transfers of images and videos to mobile devices, 20 megapixels 1/2.3-inch type CMOS sensor, and a full HD 1080p video capture at a rate of up to 60 fps. The camera captures photos in JPEG format (no raw support) and MP4. It also flaunts various shooting modes and a number of filters and effect (full manual and semi-manual).
