Canon PowerShot SX700 HS Review

May 13, 2014 | Mark Goldstein | Rating star Rating star Rating star Rating star


The PowerShot SX700 HS is the new flagship model in Canon's travel-zoom camera range. Despite compact 112.7 x 65.8 x 34.8 mm dimensions, Canon has managed to cram in a 30x zoom lens with a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-750mm. Thankfully lens-shift Image Stabilisation is included too, which combined with the sensor's maximum ISO 3200 sensitivity should ensure sharp shots at extreme focal lengths and in low light. The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS' sensor itself is a 1/2.3” back-illuminated, high sensitivity CMOS device with 16-million effective pixels and is paired with Canon's latest DIGIC 6 image processor. There are plenty of features to play with too, like Full HD 60p movies with stereo sound and 5-axis image stabiliser, Manual, Av and Tv shooting modes, the Creative Shot mode which captures a standard image plus five stylised variations and the Hybrid Auto mode that automatically captures a 4-second movie before each shot and combines the stills and video into a montage. You also get Wi-Fi connectivity and NFC for wireless image sharing and remote camera control, available in black and red for around £329 / €399 / $349.

Ease of Use

Whilst it may be crammed with the latest technology, first impressions of the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS aren't overly inspiring, although it does at least have a metal casing and consequently feels solid and well made. A pronounced rubberised ridge on the front and the raised shooting mode dial at the rear make the camera surprisingly easy to hold for what is otherwise a relatively slim camera that'll slip easily into a pocket or small handbag.

Atop the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is a familiar zoom ring encircling the shutter release. Fortunately the zoom ring has two speed settings, so you can move it a little to make fine focal length adjustments, or give it the full twist for a quick zoom. The SX700 HS also has a clever zoom assist feature which zooms the lens out to aid framing when using the longer telephoto settings, then automatically zooms back in again, accessed by holding down the dedicated button on the left flank of the camera.

Alongside the shutter release is a one-touch movie record button, with the SX700 HS offering Full 1080p recording at 60fps or 30fps, as well as 720p at 30fps. At the opposite end sits the popup flash. You'll need to manually eject the flash using a switch on the left side of the camera, but this does eliminate any chance of the flash going off automatically when you're not expecting it.

Power up the SX700 HS and it springs into life in a fraction over a second and you're greeted by a simple – if slightly dated – on screen display, but all the information you need is still easily readable. The menu interface is also simple and quick to navigate, with the Func/Set button displaying the most common shooting options together.

When you're ready to snap a shot, the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS doesn't waste any time in autofocusing and is quicker to find its mark in low light than you'd expect. The system can get confused when shooting a macro subject which doesn't occupy much of the frame, but otherwise you can leave the camera in Auto mode safe in the knowledge it'll focus fast and accurately. On the subject of macro focusing, a 1cm-minimum focus distance is very good for this class of camera.

The SX700 HS is also a bit of a speed demon when it comes to continuous shooting. Sure, its 3.1fps capture rate isn't exactly blistering, but unlike many a compact it won't throw in the towel after a handful of shots and slow to a snail's pace. Depending on the speed of your memory card the burst rate will eventually deteriorate, but we found the camera kept on shooting at least 2fps. You can also indulge in a more rapid 8.5fps shooting speed, albeit only for 4 shots. Of course if all this still isn't fast enough to record the action, there's always Full HD video capture.

When you'd like to get creative the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS delivers a modest but useful range of effects. There's those Creative Shot and Hybrid Auto modes mentioned earlier, but if you delve into the shooting mode menu you'll also find effects like fish-eye and miniaturisation distortions, plus a ubiquitous toy camera retro look. These are mixed in with regular shooting modes which also includes a useful Smart Shutter function which will automatically snap your shot when the camera detects a smiling face. Switch to the My Colours menu and you can set all shots to be automatically recorded with enhanced colour saturation, sepia tones or in monochrome.

It's perhaps a little disappointing that you don't get a touch-sensitive screen, but the standard 3.0-inch display does the job well. It's bright with decent contrast and great viewing angles, and the 922k-dot resolution is more than respectable.

Alongside the screen is a round shooting mode dial that selects between 12 different modes. Commendably the SX700 HS offers the full range of PASM creative shooting modes, ideal for those looking to take more control, with the rather thin rear control wheel used to set the aperture and shutter speed. Switch to Creative Shot mode and the camera shoots six images in a burst. The first is an unmodified photo, but the remaining five are customised by the camera with different aspect ratios and colour effects so you can pick the funkiest version afterwards. Choose the Hybrid Auto setting and the SX700 HS operates as normal, but rather than just snapping images, it discretely captures an accompanying 4-second video too. The resulting footage and stills are then merged to form a video and photographic montage of your day. It's a neat trick that's somewhat similar to the Zoe feature on some HTC smartphones and will either be a love-it or forget-it feature.

Moving down the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS' rear panel we find decent-sized buttons to control playback and a a dedicated button to engage the camera's Wi-Fi mode. Simply install Canon's CameraWindow app on your mobile device and connect to the SX700 HS' wireless hotspot and you can wirelessly transfer photos from the camera or control it remotely if you fancy some stealth shooting. You can also tag the location of every shot using the GPS via Mobile functionality. The system is slightly laggy, but we found the connection to be stable and image transfers relatively rapid.

Less funky but no less important is the SX700 HS' battery life. It's 250-shot lifespan is merely average, so if you're set to be away from the charger for some time, activating Eco mode can eek this out to a more impressive 360 shots-per-charge. This modest thirst for power is primarily achieved by dimming the display after just a couple of second's inactivity, and turning it off altogether shortly afterwards. Pressing any button will restore life instantly though. The effect is rather like a start/stop system on a modern car and doesn't seem to have any downsides, providing you don't have to wait more than a few seconds to take your shot.

Image Quality

All of the sample images in this review were taken using the 16 megapixel SuperFine JPEG setting, which gives an average image size of around 7Mb.

The SX700 HS produces very pleasing images. Detail is crisp across the frame and isn't as susceptible to noise reduction smoothing as many cameras with equivalent sized sensors. Consequently fine details in landscape scenes are well retained and don't get smeared into a painterly mess as is all too common with cameras in this sector. Bright, punchy colour reproduction adds to the appeal, as does the flawless exposure metering and reliable white balance.

Optically there is some chromatic aberration (purple fringing) visible in high-contrast areas, but it's rarely distracting. Despite its very generous focal length range, the lens also fares well in the distortion department, with only a hint of barrel distortion at wide angle and no noticeable pincushion effect when zoomed in.

With such an impressive performance it's a shame the SX700 HS's image noise levels let the side down a little. The SX700 HSproduces noise-free images at ISO 100-400, with limited noise and colour desaturation starting to appear at ISO 800. ISO 1600 exhibits quite visible noise, smearing of fine detail and colour desaturation, and the fastest setting of ISO 3200 is even noisier, although still usable for small prints.


The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS has six sensitivity settings at full resolution. Auto mode uses a range between ISO 100 and ISO 3200, or you can switch to one of the creative shooting modes to manually select these settings.

We found that the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS images are already very sharp, but do benefit from a little touch up in post processing.

Focal Range

The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS' 30x zoom lens achieves a maximum wide-angle focal length equivalent to 25mm, and is capable of a telephoto reach of 750mm (in 35mm-camera terms).

Chromatic Aberrations

The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS handled chromatic aberrations fairly well during the review, with purple and green fringing present around the edges of objects in high-contrast situations, as shown in the examples below.

Chromatic Aberrations 1 (100% Crop)

Chromatic Aberrations 2 (100% Crop)

File Quality

Every image size option on the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is accompanied by two quality settings: Fine and Super Fine. Going for the latter will up the file size of each image from 4MB to around 6MB.

SuperFine (6.14Mb) (100% Crop)

Fine (4.01Mb) (100% Crop)

quality_superfine.jpg quality_fine.jpg


The close focusing of the Canon PowerShot SX510 HS at wide-angle is a mere 1cm. It does mean that there's little light getting in when you do that and the edge definition drops off leaving around 50% of the image in focus.


Macro (100% Crop)

macro1.jpg macro1a.jpg


The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS' flash can only manage a relatively weak 3.5m range and hence there's some fairly obvious vignetting in our wide-angle test shot taken at a distance of 1.5m. The flash has four modes: Auto, On, Off and Slow Synchro, plus a separate setting to enable or disable red-eye reduction. Whether this is active or not, the camera successfully avoids any trace of red-eye.

Flash Off - Wide Angle (25mm)

Flash On - Wide Angle (25mm)

ISO 64 ISO 64

Flash Off - Telephoto (750mm)

Flash On - Telephoto (750mm)

ISO 64 ISO 64

And here are some portrait shots. As you can see, neither the Flash On or the Red-eye-Reduction settings caused any red-eye.

Anti Shake

As you can see here, disabling IS when shooting handheld at the upper end of the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS' focal length range isn't a good idea. Keep the system on and it does a great job of counteracting the effects of camera shake.

The Canon Powershot SX700 HS's maximum shutter speed is 15 seconds, which is great news if you're seriously interested in night photography. The shot below was taken using a shutter speed of 15 seconds at ISO 100.

There's a lot to like about Canon's latest flagship travel-zoom compact, but it doesn't offer quite enough features or performance to beat one of its key rivals and our current favourite, the Panasonic DMC-TZ60.

The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is simple to operate thanks to intuitive menus and sensible controls, with the ability to take more control via the PASM mode, plus the autofocusing, exposure metering and auto white balance systems all perform admirably. We also like the clever zoom assist feature which zooms the lens out to aid framing when using the longer telephoto settings, then automatically zooms back in again. The camera's extra features are a bit of a mixed bag though. Sure, the Wi-Fi works well and the Hybrid Auto and Creative Shot modes are certainly pretty nifty, but we'd wager a panorama mode and proper multi-shot HDR capture would be more useful, not to mention RAW shooting, faster burst mode, a touchscreen interface and even a viewfinder.

Optically the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is strong thanks to its very versatile zoom range and minimal distortion. However the real performance highlight is its image quality in good lighting. Impressive detail, colour reproduction and dynamic range combine to form images which are about as clear as you'll find from a camera using a 1/2.3” sensor. If only the same could be said for shots taken in dimmer lighting though, with ISO 800 already suffering from obvious noise, smearing of fine detail and colour artifacts.

Unfortunately for the SX700 HS, the Panasonic's TZ60 is a better-specced travel-zoom option that also out-performs it too. So while the new SX700 HS matches similar cameras from Sony, Nikon, Olympus and Fujifilm, it still lags a little behind our pick of the premium travel-zoom crowd.

The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS ($349.99) is a compact camera that packs a 30x zoom lens and a 16-megapixel image sensor, but is still small enough to slide into most pockets. It's got a big, sharp rear LCD, Wi-Fi, and controls that let you take full manual control over your photography. These features are matched note for note by our Editors' Choice Nikon Coolpix S9700. The S9700 edges out the SX700 when pushed to ISO 800 and adds in-camera GPS, but aside from those differences two cameras are quite similar.
