  • Good Camera but not what I expected
    Verified BuyerReviewed by WIFI - December 27, 2020

    I have the SX50HS and love it to pieces. I ordered this camera because it is basically the same with some enhanced features like longer telephoto, smoother moving telephoto and WIFI capabilities. I asked before I bought if the WIFI capabilities meant I'd be able to email and text photos directly from the camera and was told yes and was even told yes by another user of this camera. Well, it is not a direct sharing. First you have to download the photos from the camera to your smartphone or iphone and then you can share from there. That is not the way I understood it so I am returning it but otherwise it is a great camera.

  • easy to carry camera that takes great pictures
    Verified BuyerReviewed by mrmike36 - September 7, 2019

    This is a good camera to take a wide variety of pictures without changing lens and is relatively easy to use once you learn the basics. The pictures I have taken this far have come out realatively well and able to be blown up which indicates the focusing and lens are very good. There is no full instruction book so you have to read the start up guide to get going and then download the large instruction book online to find out specifics. I'm currently putting the camera through the beginning states of photography applications and it seems to have done well. I have high hopes this will be my primary camera in the future!

  • Better than I had expected
    Verified BuyerReviewed by DogRunnner - September 20, 2019

    I have owned a Canon SX40 HS for several years and have thoroughly enjoyed the convenience that it afforded. I also have a Canon 6D MKII which I use for serious photography. When I got the new SX70 HS, I was surprised how much the controls that are like the EOS line of cameras. I like the wireless and bluetooth capabilities but I found the wireless connection unreliable so I use a third party bluetooth shutter release instead. One big disappointment is the lack of HDR mode that I used a lot with the SX40 HS. I was able to use the camera to take some nice pictures of humming birds in my back yard and am, over all, very happy with the purchase. I plan to use the camera for wildlife photography since it is so light weight and has lots of features, especially the 65X soom.
