Reasons For

7 Reasons For
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is a 30x optical zoom digital camera. That's 12x bigger than the Canon SX610 HS (18x). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

0.6 smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is a 3.2 minimum aperture digital camera, whereas the Canon SX610 HS is a 3.8 minimum aperture digital camera (0.6 larger).
300mm longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS has a maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 750mm, however the Canon SX610 HS is only a 450mm maximum focal length digital camera (300mm shorter).
Bigger combined zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is a 120x combined zoom digital camera. That's 48x bigger than the Canon SX610 HS (72x).
GPS (satellite) Edit
The Canon PowerShot SX700 HS has a GPS (satellite), but the Canon SX610 HS does not have a GPS (satellite). Read more

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

5 Reasons For
21% higher megapixel Edit
The Canon SX610 HS is a 20.2MP digital camera. That's 4.1MP higher than the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS (20.2MP). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

20 smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit
The Canon SX610 HS is an 80 minimum ISO speed digital camera. That's 20 smaller than the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS (80).
102g lighter Edit
The Canon SX610 HS has a weight of 167g, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is a 269g digital camera (102g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

270.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The Canon SX610 HS is a digital camera that takes 270.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s, whereas the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS only takes 250.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s. Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Moderately better user reviews
The average user review score of the Canon SX610 HS is 87% based on 110 reviews, but the average rating of the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS is 86% (based on 173 reviews).
