No rating available.

Our rating of the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS

The Canon SX720 HS is a portable superzoom with an impressive 40x lens and a resolution of around 20 megapixel. The camera is responsive and fast at up to six photos per second. Video recording maxes out at FullHD. Disappointing battery life at 250 images per charge (manufacturer's data); a spare battery is advised.

Succeeded in 2017 by the SX730 HS. The new model now has an articulated display and adds Bluetooth connectivity to the feature set.
