Canon PowerShot

It’s finally happening, the PowerShot SX70 HS is next to be announced

The long-awaited Canon Powershot SX70 HS looks to be the next camera announced by Canon. The Canon superzoom compact camera has been wanted for years from lots of shooters out there.

There are no specifications at this time, but they should start leaking out in the near future.

I had 2 SX50's, one did not work properly, the other worked fine, but was a struggle to use and most of my photos were poor. I briefly had a SX60 but returned it. That small sensor is very noisy at anything above base ISO, and a high shutter speed with the small aperture insures noise under most conditions if its not a very bright day.

Yes, that´s the compromise. You can´t have all aspects right - image quality, reach, size and weight and price.
Pick two...

there are entire websites and movies shot with iPhone. i prefer a caneraphone over one of these cludgy superzoom tiny dwarf sensor cameras. at least phones are small and serve multiple purposes. and iq is not much behind, if at all.

"long awaited" .. lol. Who still buys that sort of camera today?
A lot of people in wildlife do, its more convinient to get good video of animal behaviour(good light conditions) with a bridge camera than it is to do with a Slr with telephoto lens attached.

I have an SX50 that I've used for concerts when I need lots of reach and the venue or band won't let you in with a "pro" camera. I like it for the reach and the ability to shoot in RAW. My results with post processing have been quite good, although I don't shoot with it over 800 ISO. It will be interesting to see how much improvement the new sensor will have.

Excellent news! I'm curious to see how far they extended the reach of the lens, given the Nikon P900/1000 and others. Looking forward to the specs.

I sneaked an SX50 passed security into a lecture and got this. It's quite a useful camera but somewhat limited for birding and wildlife.

Well then, why don't you get outdoors and obtain an exquisitely detailed image of a one-inch-long damselfly with your phone and post it for us? That "cludgy" SX60 kicks your phone's ass for that purpose.

It'll be interesting to see the full specs, and detailed reviews of the results obviously - for occasional use, it could be an alternative to lugging multiple long lenses. I may have a use for it next year if I (finally) end up in Africa.

Are you really comparing a phone with a fixed 28mm ish lens with a superzoom? That's like saying: Why they manufacture buses anymore because they are cars these days which are smaller, faster and can take you anywhere just like a bus.
