Canon Intros PowerShot SX70 HS Superzoom Camera with 65x (21-1365mm) Zoom Lens

Superzoom cameras are not dead! Canon just introduced the new PowerShot SX70 HS compact digital camera, which features a whopping 65x optical zoom lens (equivalent to 21-1365mm), a 20.3MP CMOS imaging sensor and 4K video capabilities.

The new Canon PowerShot SX70 HS camera has a minimum focusing distance of 0cm and a zoom up to 2730mm with the ZoomPlus digital zoom feature. The PowerShot SX70 HS features a 0.39-inch, approximately 2.36-million dot, high-definition OLED Electronic Viewfinder (EVF).

This Canon SX70 HS camera also offers 4K video shooting and frame grabbing, and is the first Canon point-and-shoot camera compatible with the latest Raw format (.CR3). With the addition of a new eye sensor, the camera automatically switches to the EVF display by bringing the camera up to the eye. Additionally, the inclusion of built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology offers wireless sharing.

Canon’s DIGIC 8 processor enables the PowerShot SX70 HS camera to achieve five stops of IS with dual-sensing image stabilization (IS). The camera also features high-speed continuous shooting at up to 10 fps.

A Zoom Framing Assist button on the side of the lens barrel enables quick adjustments of the view angle, which can be useful during telephoto shooting. With a large grip for comfortable, stable shooting and an EOS-like user interface, the PowerShot SX70 HS looks and feels like a small DSLR but in an all-in-one, compact package.

The Canon PowerShot SX70 HS goes on sale in November 2018 for $549.99. More details here.
