The new Canon PowerShot SX70 HS is a bridge camera that incorporates a 65x optical zoom, 20.3-megapixel sensor and the ability to record 4K UHD video.
Although we are in the golden age of cameras without a mirror, there are many users who do not want to enter the world of professional photography. Which does not mean that they do not look for high-end features? For these types of users, Canon has introduced a new bridge camera. It’s called Canon PowerShot SX70 HS and it equips a powerful fixed lens with 65x optical zoom.
It offers an external appearance very similar to that of a reflex camera. It has a variable angle screen and equipped with a 20.3-megapixel sensor. In addition, it is capable of recording video with 4K UHD resolution. That is, the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS is an all-in-one camera, ideal for those looking for a versatile team but does not want to be changing objectives. It will reach the market in November with a price of 580 euros. Let’s go over its characteristics.
Whats in Canon PowerShot SX70 HS
The first thing that catches the attention of the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS is its objective. It has a 65x zoom that can reach a focal length equivalent to 2.730 mm with Canon’s ZoomPlus function. Such a powerful focal length makes it ideal for capturing distant scenes from a long distance. In addition, with the function of Locking the Frame Framing with Zoom, we can keep the scene framed when images are captured with super telefocuses.
On the other hand, it has a macro mode from 0 cm. This allows users to focus on objects that are practically touching the target. This mode is perfect for capturing the smallest details.
The Canon PowerShot SX70 HS sports a design very similar to that of the manufacturer’s DSLR cameras. It has a high-resolution OLED electronic viewfinder and a 3-inch variable angle display. The handle of the style of the bigger cameras allows a firm handling and a good grip.
Inside the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS, we found an improved CMOS sensor of 20.3 megapixels, type 1 / 2.3. This provides a resolution 25 percent higher, compared to the SX60 HS 16.1 megapixel.
In addition, the camera allows capturing images RAW or compact RAW formats. That is, we will have the possibility of professional postproduction through the editing programs.
Helping this sensor we have the power of the DIGIC 8 processor. This produces high-resolution images and 4K UHD video. In addition, it has a serial shooting speed of up to 10 frames per second (fps). On the other hand, continuous autofocus is possible when shooting at up to 5.7 fps, which makes it easy to capture spontaneous moments.
Finally, this new camera offers the best possible connectivity. We can synchronize images or videos with a smart device, PC or Mac, using Auto Image Sync and Transfer mode. Also with the mobile using the Canon Camera Connect app (iOS / Android) or the Image Transfer Utility 2 program, for PC and Mac.
The camera also has Remote Live View (Remote Live View), which allows you to capture images remotely with a mobile or tablet.
In short, Canon’s new high-end bridge camera offers a photographic experience similar to that of an SLR, but with a portable and versatile system. It is a multipurpose camera that will allow users to get much closer to the action, when necessary.
