    Powerful 40x Optical Zoom

The amazing 40x Optical Zoom lens is newly designed, packing high zoom power into a slim design to get you down on the field, high atop a skyscraper, deep into a landscape and much more. The camera's advanced technology helps ensure that images and videos are captured in outstanding quality, with Intelligent IS that chooses the stabilization method that matches the shooting conditions, so images are virtually shake–free in a wide variety of situations.

    Built–in Wi–Fi® Technology Makes Sharing Quick and Easy

    Built–in Wi–Fi® technology allows for on–the–go convenience when you want to share your photos and videos with friends and family. Easily post your images to select social networking and media sites – Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube™, Flickr®, and Google Drive™ – through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY directly from your PowerShot SX720 HS camera, or save them to the online photo album to share anytime, anywhere. The camera can also connect directly to both compatible iOS® and Android™ devices, and upload images via the free Canon Camera Connect app without a computer. You can control the destination of your uploads to share with everyone or to select groups, and even add comments. Sharing video is also easy with Wi–Fi® equipped PowerShot cameras, which record video using the easy–to–share MP4 format.

    Built–in NFC (Near Field Communication) Technology

    PowerShot digital cameras with built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) technology provide fast connectivity with a single tap. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android™ device, and the Camera Connect app will launch automatically for quick, easy sharing of your images. Built–in NFC technology also makes it simpler to install the app. If the app hasn't been installed yet, once you touch the devices together for the first time, the download screen will display automatically. Simply touch the camera against an NFC–equipped device with the Canon Camera Connect app installed, and a Wi–Fi® connection is established – no camera operations required. Even if your camera is off, NFC turns the camera on and establishes the connection (confirming the camera's nickname and privacy settings before the first connection is required).
