Canon PowerShot SX700 HS
While the Canon SX700 doesn't have any super spectacular features, it has a solid set of specs for the price point.
By Digital Admin, Last updated on: 6/5/2014

This Canon hits the right specs for the price point with a nice 30x optical zoom and a 8.5 fps burst mode that beats the Nikon S9700. With the ability to focus as close as .4 inches from the front of the lens plus the long zoom and manual modes, this compact camera is quite versatile. The HD video shoots in an excellent 60 fps frame rate, so movies from the SX700 should be quite good compared to similarly priced cameras. Overall, there's nothing super spectacular, but the SX700 offers a good feature set for the price point.

    Comparing to the SX270/280. I know they've up-graded the battery (by about 60mA - a fat lot of good it seems) Will it have the same battery issue when taking videos? This is what many people will be wondering and if the sales will be slow starting because of this? Time will tell, I won't be rushing out for sure - there are plenty more pebbles on the beech.
