Gear Up for Your Holidays with the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS


We all love the holidays – even if it is just a short vacation during the long weekend – as it is a time to rest and relax with family, friends, or on your own. You venture out, have new experiences, and you would want to share them with others as well. 

So what better way to capture and retain all your favourite memories than with the all-in-one Canon PowerShot SX70 HS? It is the perfect present you can gift yourself and your loved ones this holiday. With its new and improved features, you will never miss another precious photo-worthy moment. 

PowerShot SX70HS

Upgraded Image Processor

Compared to its predecessor, the SX60 HS, the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS is paired with the new DIGIC 8 image processor and an increased CMOS sensor of 20.3 megapixels.

This powerful and cutting-edge image processor allows the camera to support high ISO speeds, faster autofocus speed and continuous shooting, increased image stabilization, and 4K movie shooting. At the same time, it is able to retain a high resolution on images and videos captured, even in low-light conditions.

Improved Autofocus Speed and Continuous Shooting

Ever missed a priceless moment just because of the poor shooting capabilities on your camera? It is frustrating and really every photographer’s nightmare – to take multiple shots and realize that the images are fuzzy and the details were not well-defined. Since none of them were sharp enough to be used, they end up in the trash and you lose a photo opportunity.

Well, the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS’s improved AF speed and continuous shooting is here to help. The AF speed ensures that the subject is sharp, establishes focus quickly even in low-light conditions, and reduces the effect of camera shake. The continuous shooting is much faster than its predecessor, capturing more frames per second (fps); it is capable of up to 10 fps with the One-Shot AF and up to and 5.7 fps with the AI Servo AF mode.

Besides shooting fast-moving subjects like in sports photography, continuous shooting pairs well with the in-built super telephoto function. It allows you to zoom in on a faraway subject, capture more frames and still retain the high image quality.

Increased Image Stabilization (IS)

Got the case of shaky hands? Handheld shooting is made easier with the Dual Sensing IS system in the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS. It can accurately detect the amount of camera shake and stabilise the image up to 5 shutter speed stops’ equivalent – almost two times better than what its predecessor was capable of. This system can help to minimise the likelihood of blurry images caused by body movement.

Better Movie Shooting Capabilities

Ever felt jealous of your friend’s amazing vacation after seeing their video posts on social media? You don’t have to feel that way anymore when you can create your own!  

With the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS, you can record your vacation and relive it down the years. The camera supports 4K movie shooting, four times better than the resolution of full HD. Moreover, the ultra-high definition video captured creates a realistic expression. With such clarity, it will surely bring you back to that place of fond memories. The 4K capabilities also include creating time-lapse movies and frame grab, a function which allows you to conveniently grab a clear still scene from a video shot.
