65x Optical Zoom
Imagine having the power to capture birds flying in the distance on your walks, shoot architectural details atop a skyscraper and see the expression on an athlete's face from up in the stands - all from a compact camera with a built-in lens. Lightweight with superb controllability, the 65x Optical Zoom lens on the PowerShot SX70 HS camera is both a marvel of optical engineering and a Genuine Canon Lens, which means that the images you capture with it will be beautifully natural and true to life - whether you're shooting highly detailed and close-up macro shots, at the wide-angle end or at the extreme telephoto end.

Dual Sensing IS
Trust the advanced technology of Dual Sensing IS to deliver reliable image stabilization, even at the furthest reaches of the PowerShot SX70 HS camera's telephoto lens. By helping to correct unwanted shaking from accidental camera or body movement, the PowerShot SX70 HS can produce sharp and clear images.

20.3 Megapixel** CMOS Sensor
The PowerShot SX70 HS camera features a 20.3 Megapixel** High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor for powerful imaging performance. Utilizing a sophisticated light-capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for high ISO capture with reduced noise, delivering clear, detailed results even in low light. It also enables fast continuous shooting and fast autofocus for high-speed performance that helps you capture important moments.

DIGIC 8 Image Processor
The PowerShot SX70 HS camera features the DIGIC 8 Image Processor, which helps improve autofocus performance, enables you to shoot 4K UHD 30p video and aids with many other advanced features. It comes with an improved Auto Lighting Optimizer, which helps minimize blown-out areas by maintaining color and detail in the bright parts of a photo. When set to High, it can even smooth the transitions between colors, helping you take impressively lifelike sunrise and sunset photos.

4K Video and 4K Time-lapse Movie.
Capture 4K videos^ at a frame rate of up to 30 fps for super-high definition, cinematic results. Recording at almost four times the resolution of Full HD, you can see your subject in stunning clarity. Beautiful time-lapse videos can also be created in 4K simply and easily with the dedicated Time-lapse Movie mode. You can also harness the power of 4K frame cropping^^ to extract still images from your video recordings. All of this is possible in-camera without the need for additional software. An optional external microphone (Ø3.5mm) is also provided for serious audio recording to match the high-quality video you'll capture.

Built-in 0.39-type OLED EVF with Approx. 2.36 Million Dots.
In certain situations, like a bright sunny day, a viewfinder is preferable to a screen. The built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder on the PowerShot SX70 HS camera features approximately 2,360,000 dots so you can see high amounts of detail in what you're capturing.
