Excellent Camera for the price- 9/10

I just got the SX 720 HS on sale as an older model, the zoom is much smoother in video than the 700, the extra zoom is also a plus.  Cant really do better than this in a pocket camera at this price point, flash even works well. Well engineered package.  I own all canon gear except for 1 sigma lens, I have 4 canon L lenses, 3 bodies, always pleased and love the menu and ability to interact with others, Canon rocks !  I find for shooting wildlife video the 720 works great, although my fancier cameras will provide more resolution they are heavy and can only shoot about 30 seconds before my hand cramps or I just cant keep it still, with the little camera its easy to put on something as a base, even has slow motion, could not be happier with the product.
