The Powershot S70 is the "big brother" of the 6.0 megapixel PowerShot S60 and is aimed at the advanced user who wants full photographic control in a compact digital camera with very high resolution. The S70 combines a 7.1-megapixel imager with the same Canon 3.6x wide angle zoom lens used on the S60, it covers a 35mm equivalent of 28-100mm. This is a very high quality aspherical glass lens that produces image quality the equal of that found in the much larger professional cameras. And all of this state of the art imaging power is housed in a very compact, stylish and durable, two-toned dark metallic and black body.

The 3.6x lens features Canon’s exclusive Ultra High Refractive Index Aspherical technology, called UA Lens technology for short, which produces outstanding sharpness and clarity while at the same time allowing the camera body to be even thinner and more compact than previous models with smaller zoom ratios. The 28mm zoom setting makes real estate photography, group photos and travel photography much easier, while the UA technology produces crystal clear image quality at all focal lengths.
