Canon PowerShot SX710 HS Review

Written by

The PowerShot SX710 HS could probably be considered the midrange superzoom in canon’s compact lineup for 2015, coming with a 20MP BSI CMOS sensor, an impressive 25-750mm zoom range (35mm equivalent), plus Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities.

In terms of design, the PowerShot SX710 HS is virtually unchanged from the PowerShot SX700 HS, which may or may not be a good thing depending on how much you liked the previous model. Grip support comes by way of faux leather covering over a small grip area and in a certain sense the enlarged mode dial, which is knurled for better feel.

While we did have some misgivings about the dial being placed vertically, it seems like Canon has taken that into account quite well, implementing click stops that don’t shift out too easily.

The PowerShot SX710 HS camera also offers the very handy zoom framing assist mode that’s also seen on the higher-end Powershot G3 x. You simply press the button once and it zooms out temporarily, allowing you to reframe the shot while keeping the button depressed. Release the button, and it zooms back in. What’s nice though is that it also doubles as a subject tracking mode. You can have it identify face, body or just the upper body, and the camera will adjust the lens zoom to keep that in frame if you press and release rather than hold it down.

Another thing to note is that pressing either the phone button or the preview button will turn on the camera and automatically put it in the respective mode. It’s a bit of an underrated shortcut perhaps, but one that could save you some time if you just wanted to show off a picture perhaps.

Pros.

  • Easy to use (even for beginners)
  • Easy connect to your smartphone with NFC
  • Zoom framing assist mode is very useful

Cons.

  • Nothing significant
  • Fell like grip support must be better
