Canon PowerShot SX700 HS Digital Compact Camera Features
30x Optical Zoom
No matter the situation, you can be confident that the PowerShot SX700 HS camera’s genuine Canon 30x Optical Zoom (35mm equivalent: 25-750mm) will capture images with exceptional brilliance and clarity. Canon’s innovative Intelligent IS system analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation – allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. And Zoom Framing Assist delivers automatic tracking, so you can easily reframe long-zoom shots without losing your subject. Even the camera’s easy-to-grip shape is specifically designed for a secure hold and steady shooting.
Zoom Framing Assist
The PowerShot SX700 HS camera has the telephoto reach to capture subjects a long distance away using its powerful 30x Optical Zoom. At maximum telephoto, however, it can be challenging to track a moving subject. The Zoom Framing Assist seek function makes it much easier to use the camera’s powerful zoom lens. When you press and hold the Zoom Framing Assist function button, the camera will automatically zoom out to include a wider angle of view, enabling you to more easily locate your moving subject. Once you find it, releasing the button will cause the lens to return to its original zoom position, intelligently keeping the subject in focus until you’re ready to shoot and capture the perfect close-up moment. You can even make zoom adjustments while the button is pressed, with an animated assist frame that makes viewing easy. When the button is released, the lens will return to the adjusted zoom position.
You can also use Zoom Framing Assist to keep your subject’s face the same size in your frame no matter how they move. Tap the Zoom Framing Assist function button to detect your subject’s face. As your subject retreats and advances the camera automatically zooms in and out so their face remains the same size. It’s especially useful for capturing the expressions of fast-moving children. And, for even more convenience, the Zoom Framing Assist function is also available when shooting video.
Built-in Wi-Fi makes sharing quick and easy
The PowerShot SX700 HS camera is equipped with built-in Wi-Fi technology for on-the-go convenience when you want to share your photos and videos with friends, family and the whole world. Easily post your images to social networking and media sites – Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and now Google Drive – through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# directly from your PowerShot camera, or save them to the online photo album to share anytime, anywhere. The camera can also connect directly to both iOS and Android devices, and upload images via the free Canon CameraWindow app without a computer. You can control the destination of your uploads to share with everyone or to selected groups, and even add comments. Sharing video is also easy with the PowerShot SX700 HS, which records video using the easy-to-share MP4 format. Enhanced Wi-Fi makes posting in real time possible, so you can keep everyone up to date with photos and video even as events unfold. The built-in Wi-Fi technology on the PowerShot SX700 HS also allows you to transfer images to other Wi-Fi equipped PowerShot cameras or print your photos directly to a PictBridge (Wireless LAN) certified printer.
One-touch connection to your mobile device or computer is made possible on the PowerShot SX700 HS with the camera’s dedicated Mobile Device Connect Button. You can choose to transfer images to your smartphone or tablet for immediate sharing with the CameraWindow app, or to your computer on the same network with Image Sync to make saving and organizing your images easier. When the camera finds a linked computer on the same wireless network, images are sent directly to it. Otherwise, images are temporarily stored on CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# then transferred once a connection is made, eliminating the need for cables.
With the built-in Wi-Fi on the PowerShot SX700 HS, you can use your smartphone or tablet to remotely control the camera. Simply connect wirelessly to your device and access the free Canon CameraWindow app. Your device will show a live image of the camera’s capture – perfect for a commemorative group photo, wildlife shots and all kinds of situations. The camera’s versatile 30x Optical Zoom, flash, self-timer and shutter are all under your control, with images being saved to your camera as usual.
Built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) for easier Wi-Fi connectivity
The PowerShot SX700 HS camera supports NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, eliminating the need to find and open the Canon CameraWindow app* on your mobile device. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android device, and the CameraWindow app will launch automatically for quick, easy sharing of your images. Built-in NFC technology also makes it simpler to install the app. If the app hasn’t been installed yet, once you touch the devices together for the first time, the download screen will display automatically.
