Boasting a 20.3MP CMOS sensor and 40x optical zoom, this all-in-one point-and-shoot can capture things near and far.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Ok. I was really hoping this would be a quick and easy camera for me to use. And I am sure it will be eventually but it will take me lots of time. Maybe because I am in the older age group and not as tech savvy as these young whippet snappers out there today. But let me say this about the camera. I know Canon is a very trusted brand name! It is a perfect size to be able to tuck into your pocket while you are out and about. Being as it is also light weight it is easy to hold steady. I was able to set the time and date by following directions in the manual so yay for me ! It does have a three inch LCD display, can take pictures and even videos. I know you can send them this videos and pictures to your phone or computer but I think my grandson will have to help me with that part. Again, there is so much for me to learn about this camera and I do look forward to learning it bit by bit. And I need to get a "card" for it. So I will keep reading the manual and I will keep trying as thats how I will learn!

Perfect pocket cam

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I shoot landscape photography typically, but my girlfriend is adamant I need to start using my camera for our newborn, to which no matter how many ways I try to explain cameras & lenses, I'm still wrong. Got this as the perfect go to for family anything and everything to snap pics of my mini me. The picture quality is great (even good enough to print on canvas,) the zoom is amazing even though I don't use it all that frequently, but the 4k video is my favorite feature in being able to get some of these precious moments with him locked in 4k. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quality point and shoot camera or even a camera for beginners looking to break into photography, gotta start somewhere!

This camera is the BOMB!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This camera is exactly what I’ve been searching for. It takes photos extremely clearly, produces great quality photos for printing on large canvases. It also has an incredible zoom that is perfect for capturing wildlife in photos without getting too close. This is going to be the PERFECT camera for my upcoming national parks trip. I am so impressed with the value and quality, and can’t wait to keep using it.

Great camera

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great point-and-shoot camera with professional features/qualities. Nice 20.3 mp so the quality is great and BlueTooth and wifi options are a nice feature to work with as well. I've used this at my nephew's baseball games and the shots came out great. I'll be using this camera a lot.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This camera is perfect and it gives a very high quality and detailed pictures. I feel like I am a professional photographer using this camera. It’s size is perfect and easy to carry on the go . The zoom in feature is one of a kind and gives high resolution pictures.

Very Nice Camera

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Whether you're a novice or experienced photographer, this camera offers the user the simplicity of point and shoot up while allowing the functionality to customize your photo settings. Picture quality is outstanding, the menu is easy to navigate and the 40X optical zoom (160X digital) is phenomenal. I really like the ability to wirelessly transfer photos to my phone as it negates the need to remove the memory card and transfer manually. The only drawback I see with the Canon SX740 HS is it didn't come with a memory card. Including a card with even just minimal memory would have been appreciated.

Powerful little Camera!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This camera is perfect for when I need a little more power than my phone, but don't want to lug around my DSLR (which happens to also be a Canon!) The clarity of images captured is fantastic. The battery life is perfect for a day or two of fun. The camera itself is straightforward and intuitive (gotta love Canon!) If you're looking for an easy to use, everyday camera, I would put this on the top of the list!
