Canon boasts one of the most impressive lineups of digital cameras in the business. It spans from affordable and compact point-and-shoot offerings, to DSLR cameras in various price points, all the way to a splurgeworthy, cutting-edge mirrorless camera with a full-frame sensor (rumor has it that a more affordable full-frame mirrorless snapper is also on the way). We’ve rounded up some of the tech giant’s best offerings for every skill level and budget.
Canon PowerShot SX620 Digital Camera
The Canon PowerShot SX620 offers users a step up in image quality and versatility from their smartphone camera. Its key features include a 20 MP image sensor sitting behind a versatile 25-magnification zoom lens, intelligent image stabilization, and 3-inch display with an intuitive user interface.
The PowerShot SX620 has Wi-Fi connectivity, so you can instantly transfer photos you have captured to your smartphone. There are three colors to pick from — black, silver, and attention-commanding red.
Canon’s beginner-friendly camera has earned it a Photography Blog recommendation. According to the review editor, the PowerShot SX620 offers better image quality than most smartphones.
Canon PowerShot SX740 HS Digital Camera
The PowerShot SX740 HS is a super compact camera with an ultra long zoom. Canon managed to pack a 40-times magnification optically stabilized zoom lens — with a 24-960-millimeter focal length — and a 20.3 MP CMOS sensor in a pocketable form factor.
The camera is the perfect traveling companion, and it’s great for recording concerts. Its 3-inch LCD (sans touch screen) flips upward 180 degrees for selfies. Not only that, but it’s chock-full of features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 4K video recording.
Canon EOS M6 Mirrorless Camera (With a Kit Lens)
The EOS M6 mirrorless camera by Canon has a large 24.2 MP APS-C sensor, a nice set of external controls, an articulating display, and the ability to capture Full HD 1080p video. There’s a fairly limited number of lenses available for the camera’s proprietary mount, but users can tap into Canon’s immense range of DSLR lenses via a fairly inexpensive adapter.
If you’re a Canon DSLR owner looking to downsize, the EOS M6 should definitely be on your list. Our only complaint is its lack of a built-in viewfinder — Canon has saved this feature for the pricier EOS M5.
Canon EOS Rebel T7i Camera (With a Kit Lens)
The Canon EOS Rebel T7i packs an advanced 24.2 MP APS-C image sensor and a seriously speedy dual-pixel autofocus. The rest of its long list of key features includes 1080p video capture at a brisk 60 fps, a fully articulating 3-inch touch screen, and an optical viewfinder.
Canon has also equipped the T7i with an improved image-processing engine and a five-axis image stabilization system for preventing shaky footage. The camera has Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth connectivity, so you can connect it to a smartphone.
Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II Digital Camera
Inside the stylish and compact body of the Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II lies a massive 1-inch, 20 MP sensor. Combined with a high-quality lens with 3-times magnification optical zoom and f/2.0 maximum aperture, it’s capable of capturing images and 1080p video with excellent quality.
Other key bits of the camera include a rich set of connectivity settings and intuitive controls. Overall, the G9 X Mark II is an excellent choice for casual users looking for a pocketable camera that packs a punch. There are two color options to choose from: silver (pictured) and black.
Canon Powershot SX70 Digital Camera
The Powershot SX70 is Canon’s most capable option for buyers looking for a point-and-shoot camera with versatile zoom range. Its 65-magnification optical zoom lens with optical image stabilization has a focal length, which ranges between 21 and 1,365 millimeters.
Canon has equipped the camera with a 20.3 MP CMOS sensor, capable of capturing still images with solid quality, as well as 4K video. Other features of the camera include a fully articulating display, a built-in electronic viewfinder, and a good set of external controls.
According to an in-depth review by TechRadar, the Powershot SX70 has a speedy performance and excellent image stabilization. However, the reviewer noted that the camera’s tilting display is not touch-sensitive.
