Product information
Compact, intuitive and full of fantastic features, the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS Superzoom Compact Digital Camera puts image quality, zoom capabilities, connectivity and much more in a pocket-friendly body.

Capture your favourite moments

This travel-friendly compact camera brings your pictures to life, with the high resolution pixel count and back-illuminated CMOS image sensor capturing more image detail. Canon's HD system gives you outstanding low-light shooting, capturing the real atmosphere of the moment without the need of a flash. A powerful DIGIC 6 processor renders the images to ensure rich clarity, natural colour tones and true-to-life results.

Intelligent IS

Intelligent image stabilisation technology keeps your compositions sharp and vivid. The IS system automatically selects the best IS mode from eight options to ensure your photos and movies are free from blur. The enhanced Dynamic IS compensates camera shake in 5 axis, providing a steadier shooting experience.

Incredible 30x optical zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS lets you get closer to the subject thanks to a 30x optical zoom range. This impressive zoom range does not compromise on the camera's compact and pocket-friendly form. A ZoomPlus feature combines both optical and digital zooming to achieve 60x zooming without loss of quality. You can fit more in the frame, capture stunning landscapes and distant subjects, all through the remarkable 25 mm ultra wide-angle optics.

Creative photography

The SX700 gives you control over the shutter speed and aperture using Manual modes (Tv, Av and M). There's also a Creative Shot mode which shoots the image with various artistic effects. You can select from a number of creative filters like Monochrome, Retro, Special and Natural.

A Smart Auto function allows you to shoot the moment without worrying about settings. This mode automatically selects the optimal settings from 58 variables (21 in movies). All you need to do it point the camera and fire the shutter.

Full HD movies

A dedicated movie button instantly records smooth, fluid and incredibly sharp Full HD movies at 60 fps with high quality stereo sound. There's also manual focus peaking and support for MP4 that allows you to edit and share your movie moments in the highest quality.

The Hybrid Auto function captures a 4-second movie clip before each image and combines the clips into one entertaining movie.

Capture, connect and share

With built-in WiFi and NFC support, the Canon Superzoom camera enables you to connect to other smart devices. This gives you easy and instant sharing of your photos and videos - upload them to your favourite social network site or send them to your devices. Use the Mobile Device Connect Button and NFC to instantly connect to a compatible smartphone or to backup your moments on Flickr, Google Drive, CANON iMAGE GATEWAY or PC.

You can add GPS location information to your snaps through your smartphone. What's more, you can control your camera remotely from your smartphone, great for capturing selfies, wildlife shots or big group shots with friends.

Be ready for that perfect photo and instantly share the moment on the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS Superzoom Compact Digital Camera in stylish red.

Good camera!
It's a rip off!!!!!! NO accessories! NO case, NO instructions, NO mini tri pod basically nothing but the camera, 1 battery, charger that's it. A very basic start up instruction and that's it!!! All of these have to be bought!!! RIP OFF!!!

grantham GB Point & shoot
Bought it for the zoom and the overall size. Have had many canon cameras in the past, really like them.
For a confirmed techno phobic, I would have prefered an idiots guide to come with the camera.

Could not find a RED version anywhere so had to buy second choice, black.

Ease of use
Nothing really, though you do need a tripod or steady surface for pictures with high magnification
