As well as being compared against other travel zooms, the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is also often compared to mirrorless, pro digicams, super zooms and compacts. The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS's top rivals come from Canon (such as the PowerShot SX620 HS and the PowerShot S110) and Sony (such as the Alpha A6000 and the Cyber-Shot HX60)

compared toTravel zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon SX700 HS compared to other travel zoom competitors include: it records even higher-speed movies (240 fps vs none), has an external mic jack and has a significantly longer battery life (360 shots vs 250 shots).

However, on average it has a much narrower wide angle lens (25 mm vs 4 mm), doesn't have a built-in GPS, doesn't have a viewfinder (none vs digital) and doesn't support an external flash.
