ePhotozine reviewed the Canon Powershot SX70 HS, and they are not very fond of it. From the conclusion:
The Canon Powershot SX70 HS is an update to the SX60, adding 4K video, and increasing the price. This makes it competitive with other cameras, such as the Panasonic Lumix FZ82, or Nikon Coolpix B700, in terms of features, but for some reason, the Canon is almost double the price. Due to this, you’ve got to be a big Canon fan to justify the purchase of this camera. We found the camera frustrating at times due to focusing issues to do with the shutter release button, and we also missed shots at times due to focus.
With 4K UHD video recording and a microphone socket, the camera may be appealing to those who want video recording with a lot of zoom. For everyone else, we’d probably just get the FZ82, it’s practically half the price. If the price of the SX70 HS drops substantially then it could be an option to look at. Read the review…
The price for the Canon Powershot SX70 HS will most likely drop within the next 6 months.
