Our opinion:

What a zoom!
In fact, what a focal range: from better-than-normal wideangle (21mm) to the stratospheric 1365mm telephoto! This is a real contender an an SLR alternative, giving a fantastic range between the wideangle and at the telephoto settings and comes with an extreme macro mode. Actually, we can't think of another compact camera that offers such a fantastic zoom range.

The SX70 includes a RAW option. If you are unfamiliar with RAW, it stores images uncompressed and with more detail than jpg, which offers a host of post-shooting corrections; in fact, most exposure problems/mistakes become rescuable.

Canon's 'Smart Auto' feature is worth mentioning too, as an outstanding feature for recognizing a scene, and dialing in the right programme to take the photo with. Whether you're skiing, beaching, pointing the camera at a sunset or at a backlit person - fear not, your photos will be beautiful. There are also new creative filters, including Fisheye and pinhole camera effects.

The SX70 offers 4k and Full HD 1080p movies, a dedicated movie record button, full manual operation and powerful image stabilization. You can even shoot at 30 frames per second when using 4k.

Finally, this bridge camera includes Wi-Fi, making it easy to control the camera from a smart phone. This saves buying all sorts of accessories, from a cable release to memory card readers. What more could one wish for in a camera?

It's simple to keep track of distant subjects at high zoom.
