Dual Sensing IS
Trust the advanced technology of Dual Sensing IS to deliver reliable image stabilization, even at the furthest reaches of the PowerShot SX70 HS camera's telephoto lens. By helping to correct unwanted shaking from accidental camera or body movement, the PowerShot SX70 HS can produce sharp and clear images.
20.3 Megapixel* CMOS Sensor
The PowerShot SX70 HS camera features a 20.3 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor for powerful imaging performance. Utilizing a sophisticated light-capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for high ISO capture with reduced noise, delivering clear, detailed results even in low light. It also enables fast continuous shooting and fast autofocus for high-speed performance that helps you capture important moments.
DIGIC 8 Image Processor
The PowerShot SX70 HS camera features the DIGIC 8 Image Processor, which helps improve autofocus performance, enables you to shoot 4K UHD 30p video and aids with many other advanced features. It comes with an improved Auto Lighting Optimizer, which helps minimize blown-out areas by maintaining color and detail in the bright parts of a photo. When set to High, it can even smooth the transitions between colors, helping you take impressively lifelike sunrise and sunset photos.
4K Video and 4K Time-lapse Movie.
Capture 4K videos^ at a frame rate of up to 30 fps for super-high definition, cinematic results. Recording at almost four times the resolution of Full HD, you can see your subject in stunning clarity. Beautiful time-lapse videos can also be created in 4K simply and easily with the dedicated Time-lapse Movie mode. You can also harness the power of 4K frame cropping^^ to extract still images from your video recordings. All of this is possible in-camera without the need for additional software.
Built-in 0.39-type OLED EVF with Approx. 2.36 Million Dots.
In certain situations, like a bright sunny day, a viewfinder is preferable to a screen. The built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder on the PowerShot SX70 HS camera features approximately 2,360,000 dots so you can see high amounts of detail in what you're capturing. Its Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology offers high-contrast, high-color images that can help properly display the scene you want to capture.

Image Stabilization of up to 5 Stops for Excellent Performance.
It's easy to capture clear, steady images with the PowerShot SX70 HS camera, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because the camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS, with up to 5 stops provided for incredibly stable results. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation – allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal (Still Image) IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod IS modes. New icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you're shooting still images or video.
