40x Optical Zoom (24–960 mm)

With the PowerShot SX720 HS camera in hand, you'll be impressed at the zooming capabilities of this slim, compact digital camera. The amazing 40x Optical Zoom lens is newly designed, packing high zoom power into a slim design to get you down on the field, high atop a skyscraper, deep into a landscape and much more. The camera’s advanced technology helps ensure that images and videos are captured in outstanding quality, with Intelligent IS that chooses the stabilization method that matches the shooting conditions, so images are virtually shake-free in a wide variety of situations.

Intelligent IS

Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies a suitable shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make effective IS settings to help capture a steady image.

Image Sync Function

In addition to wirelessly transferring photos and videos through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY to your computer, now you can view and download them from your smartphone. Take them anywhere, anytime, and use your familiar smartphone operations to view and share them.

Remote Shooting with the Camera Connect App

Remote shooting functions of your camera through your smartphone or tablet have been vastly improved with the Canon Camera Connect app. Now a variety of the camera's expressive capabilities are available to you: use different shooting modes (P, Av, Tv, M, Custom); enjoy multi-aspect shooting and display; choose AF frame modes (single-point/face detection); shoot in continuous shooting mode; and utilize the AF button. In addition, the Camera Connect app is now universal to PowerShot and EOS cameras with built-in Wi-Fi, so if you switch between cameras, operation is easy and familiar.

20.3 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor

This camera employs a 20.3 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which delivers powerful imaging performance and is optimized for use in compact cameras. Utilizing a sophisticated light-capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for high ISO capture with reduced noise. It's also incredibly fast, capable of rapidly capturing and moving image data to the processor, as well as enabling fast continuous shooting and fast autofocus.

DIGIC 6 Image Processor

This camera is equipped with the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which helps boost image quality in both stills and video. Improved light sensitivity allows for higher resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions, and Dynamic IS detects and compensates for tilt and parallel movement (shift blur) to help create video that's virtually free of distortion. The processor also enhances the performance capabilities of this camera, enabling high-speed, high-quality continuous still image shooting at up to 5.9 frames per second. And video recording is impressive as ever, as the DIGIC 6 Image Processor enables Full HD at 60p, as well as MP4 recording. Highly compressed MP4 video not only preserves space on your memory card but also improves playback on compatible mobile devices. Plus, with MF Peaking, made possible thanks to the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, you'll have a pro-level focusing tool at your disposal.

Capture spectacular 1080p Full HD video at 60p with stereo sound

This camera is designed to make beautiful, creative video capture easy and fun. Image quality is luminous and lifelike in 1080p Full HD, with selectable frame rates of 60p, 30p and 24p to match the situation and end use. MP4 format, ideal for sharing and playing on mobile devices, is also available. Dynamic IS offers 5-axis image stabilization that can correct strong camera shake that can occur when you shoot while running or walking backward.

Large 3.0-inch LCD (approx. 922,000 dots) allows easy viewing even from a wide angle

The large, 3.0-inch high-resolution LCD screen makes it easy to both frame and review your shots. A resolution of approximately 922,000 dots helps make even small details clear, and images are viewable even from a wide angle, so showing others what you've captured is easy, too.

Zoom Framing Assist now features a lock button option for quick and accurate subject recognition

With its Optical Zoom lens capacity, this camera has the telephoto reach to capture subjects a long distance away. At maximum telephoto, however, it can be challenging to track a moving subject. The Zoom Framing Assist seek function makes it much easier to use the camera's powerful zoom lens. When you press and hold the Zoom Framing Assist button, the camera will automatically zoom out to include a wider angle of view, enabling you to easily locate your moving subject. Once you find it, releasing the button will cause the lens to return to its original zoom position, intelligently keeping the subject in focus until you're ready to shoot and capture the perfect close-up moment. You can even make zoom adjustments while the button is pressed, with an animated assist frame that makes viewing easy. When the button is released, the lens will return to the adjusted zoom position.

Zoom Framing Assist offers a seek assist function that detects when you're panning (for instance, to search for the location of a soccer player) and automatically zooms out to help; stop panning, and the zoom returns to its original position. Zoom Framing Assist keeps your subject's face the same size in your frame no matter how they move. Tap the Zoom Framing Assist function button to detect your subject's face. As your subject retreats and advances the camera automatically zooms in and out so their face remains the same size. It's especially useful for capturing the expressions of fast-moving children. The feature has been further enhanced by letting you choose the subject's size: choices include face, upper body, whole body, manual or off for superior assistance and control. And, for even more convenience, all Zoom Framing Assist functions are also available when shooting video.

Story Highlights enables the camera to automatically compile images and videos from a certain day or event into a mini highlight reel with music

View your still images and video as a fun short story with the Story Highlights feature on the PowerShot camera. Improved for convenience, you can choose to have the camera create this reel automatically by using advanced algorithms to classify your images according to date, event or people, then compiling a short video of approximately three minutes with suitable background music and color effects applied. You can also customize your Story Highlights reel for a fun, unique video. Story Highlights BGM lets you add background music (choose from three pre-loaded songs) to the clips that Story Highlights automatically generates, for a new level of emotive expression. It's all done in camera, without the need for any additional software. Easily access and enjoy your Story Highlights – simply press the Story Highlights button to start creating your highlight album. The Story Highlights album can be saved to the camera's memory card for quick replay and also shared using the PowerShot camera's built-in Wi-Fi technology.

Creative Shot mode uses composition, color and lighting from your original image to create unique images with an artistic flair

Not only is the PowerShot camera a stylish powerhouse, the camera also enables you to easily create artistic images with Creative Shot mode. In Creative Shot mode, the camera captures the original composition, automatically produces and saves five additional copies of the image and uses advanced Canon technologies to apply any of 46 filter options based on the individual scene, subject and exposure. Filter choices are grouped into Retro, Monochrome, Special and Natural categories to make exploring the world of artistic photography fun and easy, or you can simply select Auto to access the full range of effects. With Creative Shot mode, the result can lead to stunning artistic photos that are ideal for sharing.
