  • Conclusion: There's a couple of issues which stop it being better though – such as not being able to set the autofocus point, or the lack of raw format shooting. Overall though, a very competent camera which shouldn't leave you disappointed. It's also worth noting that, as it stands, it's reasonably cheaper than its closest competitors from Sony and Panasonic.

Canon PowerShot SX700 HS gets you closer with 30x zoom

CNET
30 May 2014
  • Summary: If you're looking for more than just a simple snapshot experience from a compact zoom camera, the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS should be on your short list, despite a couple shortcomings.
  • Pros: Along with its 30x zoom lens, the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS has fun and useful shooting options; built-in Wi-Fi with NFC; a high-resolution LCD; and excellent shooting performance and daylight photo and video quality.
  • Cons: Its low-light (high-ISO) photos could be better and while its battery life is noticeably better than that of its predecessor, you'll still want to keep an extra battery handy for all-day shooting. Canon could have done more with the camera's NFC.

Canon Powershot SX700 HS review

Digitaltrends
1 May 2014
  • Conclusion: We have been worried about Canon’s compact cameras, wondering if the company even cares about the category anymore. The PowerShot ELPH 340 HS we recently reviewed left much to be desired. But with the SX700, it shows that Canon is putting its resources not in budget models, but in more advanced offerings (as are most camera companies).
  • Pros: Terrific image quality, Very good videos, Quality 30x zoom lens
  • Cons: Not great with low light, Creative Shot effects are so-so, LCD isn’t touchscreen, doesn’t flip out

  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is Canon's flagship compact super-zoom, going head to head in a competitive market with models from Panasonic and Sony - the Lumix TZ60 / ZS40 and Cyber-shot HX50V / HX60V. The Canon has a 30x zoom with a 25-750mm equivalent range, a 3 inch 920k dot LCD screen, built-in Wifi with NFC and the usual wealth of Canon feature modes, although still no in-camera panorama stitching!
  • Pros: 30x optical zoom., Excellent stabilisation., Built-in Wifi with NFC., Manual focus with peaking., 1080p/60 HD video.
  • Cons: Poor Battery life., Limit remote shooting features., No HD High speed movie mode., Inaccurate zoom magnification scale.

  • Summary: Offering a 30x optical zoom in a pocketable package, the SX700HS might just be the perfect compact for travellers
  • Pros: 30x optical zoom Wi-Fi / NFC Manual control, The best thing about this camera, as you'd expect it to be, is the 30x optical zoom functionality. It shoots great, crisp images at either end of the telephoto zoom, and optical image stabilisation does a fantastic job of keeping shots blur free. It's also nice to see that the digital zoom is also very usable, especially if you're just sharing online. Low light shooting is also excellent, thanks to the addition of the Digic...
  • Cons: No touchscreen Can't change AF point Limited control over creative modes, Thankfully, there's not too much to dislike about the SX700HS, it's more a case of a little niggle here and there which stop it from being the perfect travel camera. I'd like to be able to shoot in raw format for a bit of added flexibility, especially while shooting with film simulation and digital filters activated. I also think it's a shame that you can't set the autofocus point to a specific ...

Canon PowerShot SX700 HS

  • Excerpt: The Canon SX700 HS is the successor to the Canon SX280 HS , one of our favourite cameras of 2013. We like cameras that pack big zooms into slim bodies, and the SX280 HS delivered the highest photo and video quality we had seen from such a camera. The SX700 HS ups the ante with a 30x zoom – a big jump from the SX280 HS's 20x zoom and the joint biggest ever to grace a compact-shaped camera.
