Canon PowerShot SX700 HS Digital Camera
This travel zoom camera offers excellent performance all-around, with plenty of features and shooting modes to play with. The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is small enough to put in a loose pocket, as well as for taking shots one-handed; when using the zoom lens, however, you’ll likely find yourself needing to use both hands. The PowerShot SX700 HS uses a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor (up four megapixels from the SX280) and a 30x zoom lens.
This camera has relatively fast performance and includes lots of features, as well as a lot of shooting modes, options, and filters to choose from. Photo and video quality is very good in the daytime, but suffers somewhat in low light. The built-in flash has to be manually released before you can use it; while this was done in an effort to save space, it can result in missed shots if you don’t have it released on time.
The SX700 HS is simple to use, with buttons that are easy to use - if somewhat crowded to make room for the high-resolution LCD screen. Battery life is better than that of its predecessor, but you’ll want to bring along an extra battery if you’re planning on all-day shooting. Overall, the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS offers a lot of features and performance, making it (despite some shortcomings) one of the top travel zoom cameras currently available.
