Canon PowerShot SX740 HS


This compact's 40x optical zoom gives it incredible reach, making it an ideal travel camera for beginners if not more advanced photographers.

40x optical zoom makes it versatile ; Generally accurate autofocus ; Good photo quality in daytime ; Shoots 4K video at 30fps

Small sensor restricts low light performance ; No option to shoot in Raw ; Screen isn’t touch-sensitive

A fair price and super-flexible zoom range makes the SX740 one of the better compact cameras for holidays and days out.

Canon PowerShot SX740 HS Review


The Canon PowerShot SX740 HS falls firmly into the "modest upgrade" category of camera releases, principally adding just two new features to a design that hasn't really changed very much during the last few years. 4K video recording is the new headline...

Canon SX740 HS Review


The Canon PowerShot SX740 travel superzoom may look very similar to its predecessor, the SX730, however there are significant upgrades under the hood. The SX740 gets Canon's latest DIGIC 8 image processor (the SX730 had a DIGIC 6 chip), which gives it...

Canon PowerShot SX740 HS Review: Versatile Pocket Shooter


Although we'd love to see an optical viewfinder, touch screen and Raw options, the SX740 HS will meet most people's needs for a compact superzoom camera. Importantly, the lens's broad focal range opens up a whole new world to those who have been...

Image-stabilized 40x zoom ; Pocket size ; Auto and Manual exposure controls ; 180-degree tilting LCD ; 4K video

No viewfinder ; No touch screen ; Limited ISO/low-light performance ; No Raw

The compact mega-zoom Canon SX740 HS (24-960mm) offers a good balance of simplicity and ease of use, along with multiple exposure controls and an extremely versatile zoom lens that will help expand your picture-taking capabilities.

Canon Powershot SX740 HS Review


We review the 40x optical zoom Canon Powershot SX740 HS, with 4K video recording, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Find out what's new in the latest update to Canon's travel zoom.

The camera needs bright sunny conditions to get the best results, and any deviance from this results in the camera increasing the ISO speed, and detail suffers as images become soft. If you don't need 4K video and don't need 10fps continuous shooting,...

Canon PowerShot SX740 HS (Digitalkamera)


Die Canon SX740 HS präsentiert sich im Test als durchaus vielseitige Kompakt-Kamera. Mit großem Zoombereich, Videos in UHD-Auflösung und cleveren Assistenz-Features weiß die Superzoom-Kamera zu begeistern. Mit Schwächen in Sachen Bildqualität reicht es...

UHD-Video inklusive Framegrab;Großer 40-fach-Zoobereich;Flotte Serienbilder bei treffsicherem Autofokus;Kompaktes und trotzdem handliches Gehäuse

Schwache Auflösung bereits ab niedrigen ISO-Werten;Durchwachsene Detailtreue;In Tele-Stellung deutliche Farbsäume;Mäßige Offenblende, sowohl im Weitwinkel als auch im Tele
