No discussion for sx700 so far
Feb 13, 2014


I am not sure if anyone is interested in the sx700, that looks to be replacement for the sx280 camera. I currently have the sx220 and I am quite satisfied of the zoom range (14x) and the quality I get at iso 100 and 200.

I am finding though that the more zoom you get performance goes down (there is not enough light to keep iso downs and you need larger shutter speeds). I wonder though why the market keeps adding more and more zoom. The 14x zoom I have first became 20x in the next models and now 30x (in the sx700)..

Why they do not keep the zoom at reasonable levels, like what I have (14x), and try to improve a bit the sensor performance or build better optics (I am not a technician but I guess that better glass and faster lens would be an improvement).

Is there something wrong on my thinking?

Happy commenting
