Amazing camera!

Superb camera, and so much lighter than my DSLR with its heavy lenses. The zoom is powerful with great results. Very impressed!

Powerful camera

Good camera with powerful zoom and plenty of other shot functions. Easy to sync to transfer photos to other devices. Only downmarked due to a problem with delivery but Onbuy's customer service to resolve the problem was excellent.

Canon PowerShot SX70 HS Camera

I'm extremely happy with my new camera. I bought it to replace a Canon SLR with 3 separate lenses which was getting a bit of a chore to carry around, and was actually putting me off from taking it when I was going out.

This is the ideal replacement for me.

First rate product, first rate service

I am absolutely delighted with the Canon SX70 camera. Haven't worked out how to use all the facilities on it but it takes amazing shots on automatic with the super powerful 65x zoom. Just brilliant.

Sophisticated but Complex Camera

I am no way a camera buff and I bought this camera as I wanted to upgrade from my point & shoot mobile phone and another Digital camera. However, I was not prepared for how complicated the various settings were and how much time I will need to spend to study the different options available. I have not found the manual (downloaded from the Canon website) that user friendly either. Hopefully over time I'll get to grips with its various features!
So if you are not very technically sophisticated like me, be prepared to spend a lot of time to get to know its various features!

Nice camera

As upgrading from the sx30is, I knew what to expect and it was definitely worth doing. Focusing is quicker and image quality improved to mention just two things.

Excellent camera!

This top of the range bridge camera is ideal for those who want ease of use, spectacular zoom capability and (relatively) great image quality. OK, it’s got the smaller sensor, but for keen amateurs it’s a great compromise between “snappy” cameras and a full-scale DSLR (I have all three types). Search around for the best price!

Great product

Really enjoying the camera, it's simple and easy to use, looks good and takes great pictures. Controls are typical Canon layout so there's minimum fuss and deep-learning required.

The camera is an updated version of the camera I already had, so it is - as expected - an excellent camera.
