The PowerShot SX70 HS not only covers super telephoto lengths as far as 1365mm (up to 2730mm with ZoomPlus*), but also boasts a 21mm wide-angle end—the widest in its class. The 0cm closest focusing distance lets you capture close-ups of subjects right in front of your lens. The 2.36-million dot high-definition electronic viewfinder (EVF) and large grip are perfect for seeing and capturing beautiful images of wild birds and other faraway moving objects. With all these features, together with up to approximately 5 stops** image stabilization (IS) and a variety of Framing Assist functions to support long distance shooting, you will be all set to nail those precious holiday photo opportunities. Record those memories as 4K/30P movies if that suits your fancy.
*In 35mm film equivalent terms
**Shutter speed-equivalent stops
Whether you are shooting telephoto or wide-angle, the 0.39-inch, 2.36-million dot high-definition OLED EVF provides a clear view of your shot—all the better for framing and composition. The large grip ensures a firm, stable hold on the camera, reducing camera shake for sharper, steadier images. Feel like a pro, shoot like a pro.
Need a speed boost when capturing fast-moving subjects? The PowerShot SX70 HS lets you shoot up to 10 frames per second (fps) with AF lock (One-Shot AF), and up to 5.7 fps while tracking moving subjects via Servo AF. Pair this with the super-telephoto capabilities for an enhanced sports and wildlife photography experience.
Dual Sensing IS uses data on camera shake from the image sensor and gyro sensors on the lens to precisely counteract camera shake by up to as much as 5 shutter speed stops. This effectively corrects image blurring caused not only by high–frequency vibrations such as hand movement, but also deeper, lower-frequency vibrations resulting from body movement during breathing, etc. A powerful feature that is immensely useful when shooting at super telephoto focal lengths.
