The SX70 HS combines DSLR looks and handling with the cutting edge tech of a fixed lens camera. Shoot in JPEG or RAW format, record 4K Ultra High Definition movies, and share your photos with the world with ease with built in Bluetoth and Wi-Fi.
Its high sensitivity CMOS sensor captures 20.3 megapixels of intricate detail, with images handled with razor sharp speed by Canon's DIGIC 8 processor. And an ISO range of 100-3200 ensures high detail in low light.
High power zoom
Zoom in on distant horizons without losing quality thanks to 65x optical zoom. Conversely, focus as close as you like to the lens with 0cm macro mode, to reveal amazing detail normally invisible to the naked eye.
Shoot movies in blisteringly detailed 4K Ultra HD, at up to 30fps.
JPEG & RAW stills
Stills can be captured in JPEG format, or RAW format for maximum editing potential.
Intelligent IS and 5-axis Advanced Dynamic IS ensure your stills and movies are sharp and stable, even when shooting handheld or at high zoom levels.
Rapid, accurate autofocus tracks moving subjects reliably, with Face & Tracking settings. Shoot at up to 10 frames per second continuous burst shooting to nail that perfect split second moment.
Wi-Fi & Bluetooth connectivity
With Wi-Fi and low energy Bluetooth you can back up your work instantly and share your work via social channels straight away by using the Canon Connect app (available on iOS and Android) on your mobile smart device.

- Vision Features
Unpackaged weight of the product
- 610g (including battery and memory card)
- Wi-Fi Enabled
- Zoom (digital)
Enlarges video captured by the optical zoom and makes it seem even closer. This involves zooming in on an existing image, so it gives slightly less detailed results than an equivalent optical zoom
- Zoom (optical)
Allows you to zoom the image closer to the subject. Optical zooms feature physically moving lens components, so it maintains the image quality as you zoom in. Digitial zooms essentially crop an existing image, so may lose image quality as they zoom in
