Canon PowerShot SX720 HS Review

Key features

  • 40x optical zoom
  • 20.3 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor
  • Full HD movies, 60p
  • Creative Modes
  • Available in black or red

Introduction

The Canon Powershot SX720-HS is the successor to the SX710 HS by Canon. The SX720-HS includes a number of upgraded features compared to the SX710, including movement from a 30x optical zoom to a 40x. Just as in the previous model, and with additional extras; the Canon Powershot SX720-HS has several key features and modes. The ZoomPlus feature offers users an additional 80x zoom, as well as the ability to capture full HD movies up to 60p, captured in MP4. Users can also user a number of different Canon features to automatically stabilize and level the film to improve quality.

What is the design ?

The Canon Powershot SX720-HS is available in both black and red color designs. Despite having a 10x greater optical lens than the SX710, the Canon Powershot SX720 has no extra bulk or size—measuring just 35.6mm in thickness.

What is the performance ?

The Canon Powershot SX720-HS has a bright focus-assist light which is great to help focus in environments with low light levels. Exposure is generally decent and fairly standard, and the color reproduction produced is even and of acceptable quality. In terms of the Lens performance; the Canon Powershot SX720-HS allows the user to focus on subjects at extremely close range for those detailed photographs. However, in the wide-angle setting—images can tend to soften out towards the outer corners of the frame.

What is the image quality ?

Problems with purple fringing and aberration are generally minimal, excluding situations where there is an extreme level of contrast. Image quality is good. From the low ISO ranges to the ISO400 range—image detail and quality is high. Past the ISO800 range, ISO noise becomes significantly more noticeable. In terms of the performance of the digital filters in the Canon Powershot SX720-HS; it has all of the standard filters and modes—contrast, Natural, Retro, Mono, and Auto, as well as a host of other visual effects.

Conclusion: Should I buy it ?

For those looking for a compact camera with a record-breaking, high lens zoom, the Canon Powershot SX720-HS does that adequately. Despite this feature, it fails to deliver ultra-high image quality at the high-zoom range. Nevertheless—general image and video quality was excellent. The Canon Powershot SX720-HS price is also more competitive than many of its competing products.

  • The Good :
    Ultra-high zoom, Compact, Great color
  • The Bad :
    Degrading quality at high-zoom, High noise in some settings
Our score:
3.5 / 5
