      Answer

      The Canon 710 has a slightly wider aperture f/3.2 vs f/3.3; the PowerShot SX720 HS has more zoom 40x vs 30x; better wide angle 24 mm vs 25 mm and slightly longer battery life 250 shots vs 230 shots.

      • Question
        When I test this model at the store, using a lot of zoom, it can take a long time for the camera to focus. If my hands are not perfectly still and the camera moves around, the focus will keep coming and going. Does it do this in the real world?   (4 Answers)

          Answer

          Yea. I'm returning the camera because of this issue. Sometimes it will never focus, the little square will keep bouncing around and I can't get it to bracket around the subject I want to photograph. This is the Canon SX 720.

            The camera can be connected to a Windows computer. The files from the camera will show up as a drive so pictures and videos can be copied to the computer.

                  Answer

                  No. Must be used in either photo or video mode. With the right software, you should be able to produce photos from the video.

                    Answer

                    The answer by HuggyBear above is for another camera that is specified as waterproof: the Canon SX... series are not. I would treat it like a non-water-resistant cell phone or maybe a little more carefully as there are moving parts like the lens cover and zoom mechanism that could be damaged by impact or water intrusion. Check Canon's website and/or warranty for more specific info.
