Zoom Power to Go

Canon PowerShot SX710 HS Bringing together a high-resolution image sensor, cutting-edge image processing, with a long-reach zoom, the Canon PowerShot SX710 HS compact Digital Camera is an all-around point & shoot appropriate for day-in and day-out shooting. A High-Sensitivity 20.3 megapixel 1/2.3" CMOS image sensor combined with a DIGIC 6 imaging processor to compose this Canon HS SYSTEM which achieves distinguished image sensitivity and clarity up through ISO 3200, along with 6 frames per second continuous shooting. A zoom 30x optical lens delivers an equivalent focal length ratio of 25-750mm , which is further enhanced by IS Intelligent image stabilization to offer clear, crisp clear still images and movies in a wide array of working environments. Rounding off the Canon imaging system is included Wi-Fi connectivity, featuring NFC, for wireless remote control transference to mobile devices.

Full 1080p HDvideo capture is also available at 24p, 30p, and 60p, 30p frame rates, which is easy to access using a dedicated video button. Another benefit to working with far off moving subjects, Assisted Zoom Framing helps to keep composition and focus when shooting at increased focal lengths. Story Highlights, Hybrid Auto, Creative Shot and Smart AUTO modes are all at your fingertips to refine the appearance of your photos, while a 922k-dot 3.0" LCD monitor is built into the ergonomic layout for monitoring live view and image playback. In addition, the Canon SX710 HS is harmonious with the available CS100 Connect Station for automated wireless storing,, back-up, and sharing images.

20.3MP CMOS Image Sensor and the DIGIC 6 Imaging Processor

The High-Sensitivity 20.3MP CMOS image sensor delivers high-resolution images in conjunction with the Canon DIGIC 6 imaging processor, displays notable sensitivity and clarity through ISO 3200, along with a top continuous 6 fps shooting rate. The image sensor and image processor work hand in hand to create the HS SYSTEM, capable of producing clear, rich images in poorly-lit environments with vivid detail and minimal noise. Beyond recording of still images, the SX710 HS additionally has the capacity to acquire full 1080p HD video at24, 30, and 60 frames per second. 5-axis Dynamic IS stabilization is an asset to recording videos by compensating for forceful movement, like when walking backwards or while running beside your subject .

30x Optical Zoom Covering wide-angle thru super telephoto, the optical 30x zoom lens delivers a 25 thru 750mm equivalent focal ranges to suit shooting in just about any environment. Intelligent IS stabilization is a big help in this extensive reach, along with when shooting in difficult lighting situations, by neutralizing camera shake for crisper, clearer images. Eight unique stabilization states are available to accommodate different shooting methods:


  • Normal IS corrects for a wide range of common camera movements.
  • Panning IS detects deliberate panning movements and does not compensate for lateral movements to permit desired camera movements.
  • Macro (Hybrid) IS corrects for shift-type camera shake that commonly occurs when working with close-up subject matter.
  • Tripod is a dedicated setting that automatically deactivates IS when the use of a tripod is detected since camera-based stabilization is not needed.


  • Dynamic IS is well-suited to recording at wide-angle focal lengths and reduces unwanted shaking that typically occurs when walking while recording.
  • Powered IS compensates for hand movements that become more visually discernable when working at the telephoto end of the zoom range.
  • Macro (Hybrid) IS minimizes the appearance of shake when walking as well as compensates for shift-type shake that occurs when working with close-up subject matter.
  • Active Tripod IS minimizes the slight amount of shake that can happen when recording video while using a tripod.

Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC and CS100 Compatibility

Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables seamless and instant transferring of photos and videos to mobile devices, home computers, and to select social networking sites. Linking Android devices to the camera is aided through the incorporation of NFC (Near Field Communication), which facilitates connection simply by tapping the two devices together. Additionally, linked mobile devices can also be used to remotely control and release the camera's shutter and display a live view image on the linked device's screen when using the Canon CameraConnect app.

Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity further provide compatibility with the optional Connect Station CS100 for automated wireless transferring and sharing of files.

Other Camera Features

  • A 3.0" 922k-dot LCD monitor is available for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation.
  • High Speed AF utilizes updated algorithms and technologies to benefit subject tracking and overall focusing accuracy and speed.
  • MF Peaking is available for a more comparative and accurate style of manually focusing.
  • The Zoom Framing Assist feature helps to maintain consistent compositions and framing accuracy, as well as sharp focus, when working with distant subjects by automatically zooming in or out.
  • Short Clip Movie can be used to quickly record brief 4-6 second videos, which can then be altered during playback through the addition of fast motion, slow motion, normal speed, and replay effects.
  • Creative Shot modes help to transform your original imagery into creative and unique works using a system of 46 in-camera filters, which are grouped within Retro, Monochrome, Special, and Natural categories Once the original image has been taken, the camera will automatically produce five additional variations using this series of filters.
  • Hybrid Auto will record short video clips prior to recording a still image, and then automatically compile them into one file to produce a highlight reel of a shooting session.
  • Story Highlights automatically selects and compiles photos into a highlight reel, which can be accompanied by included music options for a producing a finished slideshow presentation in-camera. Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings based on recognized shooting situations.
