Canon Powershot S70 Review - DigitalCameraReview

Canon Powershot S70The Canon Powershot S70 basically looks like a black version of Canon’s S60… black standing for the higher end camera in the series. The S70 camera is significantly lighter than the S50 and just a tad smaller… the loss of an ounce of weight makes it feel a little less solid than the S50. The camera has dimensions of 4.49 x 2.22 x 1.5 inches with a weight of 10.1 oz. with the Compact Flash (CF) card and battery installed. Compare this to the S50’s dimensions of 4.41 x 2.28 x 1.65 inches and a weight of 11.2 oz. That ounce really is the biggest difference between S50 and the S70. Although the S70 is a bit longer and thinner than the older S50, it fits rather nicely into Canon’s S50 leather case. On the flip side, the S50 has a more solid and metalic feel versus the S70. To me, the S70 feels a bit more plastic than the S50. In reality, the S70 follows the use of a rigid polycarbonate body with overlying metal plating (aluminum for the S70).
