Balancing a long-reaching zoom with apt imaging capabilities, the PowerShot SX720

HS Digital Camera from Canon is a sleek point-and- shoot capable of versatile stills

shooting and Full HD 1080p movie recording. Utilizing a 20.3MP 1/2.3" High-

Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor, smooth image quality is

afforded along with enhanced low-light sensitivity and minimal noise when working

with sensitivities up to ISO 3200. In addition to the sensor and processor, the SX720

HS also sports an expansive 40x optical zoom lens, which provides a 24-960mm

equivalent focal length range, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives, and is

benefitted by an Intelligent IS image stabilization system to minimize the appearance

of camera shake. In regard to handling, the compact form factor is accented by a large

3.0" 922k-dot LCD monitor as well as built-in Wi-Fi with NFC for wireless image

sharing and remote camera control.

20.3MP CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 6 Image Processor

A 20.3MP 1/2.3" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor pairs with the DIGIC 6

image processor to realize notable image quality and speed to permit stills

shooting at up to 5.9 fps and Full HD 1080p video recording at 60 fps.

Together, the sensor and processor also produce clean image quality and

enhanced sensitivity to ISO 3200 with minimal noise for working in difficult

lighting conditions. The processor also enhances focusing speeds and subject

tracking capabilities, as well as avails 5-axis Dynamic IS to compensate for

camera movement for smoother video quality.

40x Zoom Lens and Intelligent Image Stabilization

An expansive 40x optical zoom lens offers a wide-angle to super telephoto

equivalent focal length range of 24-960mm to suit working with a wide variety

of subjects. This extensive reach is complemented by a versatile Intelligent IS

image stabilization system that minimizes the appearance of camera shake for

both stills and video shooting:


 Normal IS corrects for a wide range of common camera movements.

 Panning IS detects deliberate panning movements and does not

compensate for lateral movements to permit desired camera


 Macro (Hybrid) IS corrects for shift-type camera shake that commonly

occurs when working with close-up subject matter.

 Tripod is a dedicated setting that automatically deactivates IS when the

use of a tripod is detected since camera-based stabilization is not



 Dynamic IS is well-suited to recording at wide-angle focal lengths and

reduces unwanted shaking that typically occurs when walking while


 Powered IS compensates for hand movements that become more

visually discernible when working at the telephoto end of the zoom


 Macro (Hybrid) IS minimizes the appearance of shake when walking

as well as compensates for shift-type shake that occurs when working

with close-up subject matter.

 Active Tripod IS minimizes the slight amount of shake that can happen

when recording video while using a tripod.

Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC

Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows you to wirelessly share your photos and

movies with a linked smartphone or tablet as well as remotely control the

camera from the mobile device by using the Camera Connect app. A dedicated

Wi-Fi button is also featured on the camera body to expedite the process of

connecting with a smartphone or tablet and sharing imagery between devices.

Other Camera Features

 A large 3.0" 922k-dot LCD monitor is available for composing

imagery, navigating the menu, and reviewing photos and videos.

 Zoom Framing Assist automatically zooms in or out to keep a subject

within the frame and in focus when using longer telephoto focal


 MF Peaking is available for a clearer, more objective means to attain

sharp focus when manually focusing. Creative Shot mode utilizes

various compositional, color, and lighting elements from an original

image in order to produce a new, unique image with artistic flair.

 Story Highlights can automatically produce a highlight reel, comprised

of videos and photos from a day or an event, and then add music and

effects for playback.
