IMAGE QUALITY & PERFORMANCE - CANON POWERSHOT SX710 HS
The PowerShot SX710 HS turns in good results in most conditions. There’s in-camera lens shift stabilization, and a Hybrid Auto mode that automatically captures a four-second movie before each shot and combines the stills and video into a montage, handy for parties or outings where you can’t quite predict the action. The autofocus isn’t the fastest of the group, but it is fairly accurate and it goes down to a focusing distance of just 1cm in macro, making it one of the more versatile cameras in the lineup. One thing we did like is how the AF Frame enlarges to show you exactly what is being focused on in center AF Frame mode, which sort of acts as confirmation before the shot. However, images tend to have a bit of a cyan bias, especially when shooting indoors.
Images from the PowerShot SX710 HS tend to have a bit too much cyan.
Detail is still held up decently well at ISO 1600.
