Once the photography passion is in your veins, you can’t leave the house without a camera. Your professional or semi-professional camera equipment is just too heavy and bulky to carry around with you at all time. At the same time, the mobile phone isn’t just satisfying your photography needs, so you suddenly realise that the time of getting yourself a more portable camera has come. For this reason, I’ve tested a few compact cameras and in this blog post we give a closer look at the Canon Sx 720 Hs.

This camera’s caught my attention for quite a few aspects:

The 40x Zoom which is the equivalent of a 24-960mm zoom of a 35mm sensor camera – The very interesting medium-low price range, so it’s a lot of camera for the money – A good image quality regardless of  the small 1/2.3 inch sensor – The great advantages of having a camera always with you and that it can easily fit in your jeans pocket. Of course you can’t expect to have the same low light performance you have with a DSLR full frame or APS-c sensors, but that’s not the main reason you would have purchased this camera. As an outdoor sport’s professional, I need a small portable camera to shoot skiing, cycling, landscapes and travel, so mostly daylight photography. In this test it was actually a misty day with great sky and haze in the mountains, but the images captured are still of a pretty good quality.
