Canon has announced a powerful new high zoom point-and-shoot camera, the PowerShot SX700 HS. HS stands for High Sensitivity, brought to you by Canon's newer DIGIC 6 image processor and the 16.1-megapixel HS CMOS image sensor, which really allows the camera to perform more tasks quickly and in low-lighting scenarios. The SX700 also boasts Full 1080p HD video recording, a 3.0-inch LCD display, and a long 30x optical zoom lens (25-750mm 35mm-equivalent) kept shake-free by Canon's Intelligent IS (image stabilization).

Like many 2014 models, the SX700 includes Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communication) technologies. Using the Canon iMAGE GATEWAY, the Mobile Device Connect Button, or Canon Camera Window app, owners can use Wi-Fi or NFC to connect the SX700 to compatible smartphones and tablets. From there, you'll have the chance to back up files to the cloud, transfer files to PCs or the aforementioned smart devices, or use said smart devices to remotely control the camera (settings, shutter button, etc.).

Hybrid AUTO mode is another interesting feature. It automatically takes up to four seconds of video each time a still is captured, and then combines all the clips into a highlight reel (in 720p HD) of the event or vacation. There is also Creative Shot Mode, which is 46 creative "filters" within four categories (Retro, Monochrome, Special, Natural). Users choose one of the four filter categories, and then Creative Shot automatically renders five alternate variations of your initial shot.
