Canon SX740 HS Overview

  • 1Description

Few things will be too far away for the black PowerShot SX740 HS Digital Camera from Canon. Boasting a 20.3MP CMOS sensor and 40x optical zoom, this all-in-one point-and-shoot can capture things near and far. Helping the far end of its 24-960mm zoom range (35mm equivalent) is optical image stabilization which keeps your photos sharp and in focus. Zoom Framing Assistant makes it easier to track subjects at the long end of the focal length by quickly zooming out and then back in at the press of a button once you've located your subject. Canon's DIGIC 8 Image Processor helps the camera keep up with your shooting, allowing for 10-fps continuous shooting with AF lock on.

The 20.3MP sensor is also capable of 4K video and 4K time-lapse recording. Framing for videos and photos can be done via the 3.0" LCD screen on the rear of the device, which can tilt 180° for selfies. Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth allow the camera to connect to compatible mobile devices with the Canon Camera Connect app installed and enables quick editing and sharing of photos.

  • 20.3MP CMOS sensor provides a wide ISO range for low-light shooting.
  • 40x optical zoom and a further 40x digital zoom lets you shoot far away subjects 
  • Capture incredibly detailed and vibrant video and time lapses at 30fps in cinematic 4K quality.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth pairs the camera to your mobile device for quick editing and sharing.
  • Canon's DIGIC 8 Image Processor provides reliable autofocus performance and fast 10fps continuous shooting.
  • 3.0" LCD screen tilts 180° for selfies.
  • Feature Assistant makes the learning curve easier by explaining many features of the SX740 HS.

    Canon SX740 HS Reviews

    PowerShot SX740 HS Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The good and the other. I was unhappy with some aspects of my recently purchased G7x Mark II and decided to buy this camera. I have taken several hundred images with it so far. There are some good things about it operationally that make it easier to use than the quirky, sometimes uncooperative G7x. Calling this lens "superb" is a stretch. I realize that big zooms involve trade offs so my findings are not that surprising I guess but I was hoping for better. Image quality shows less sharpness and lower contrast than the G7x by far. For internet images it's OK but for big prints it can't be that good. G7x Mark II when you can get it to behave makes super sharp images. You just can't win.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding pictures with an amazing zoom! I bought this camera to use traveling because of it compact size and amazing zoom! Canon hit a home run with the SX740 HS. High quality pictures with an amazing zoom. It's very easy to setup the WiFi and Bluetooth. It allows you to quickly send pictures directly to your phone to forward on or to your computer/printer. The camera is very easy to use and the Optical Image Stabilizer really helps produce sharp pictures. Extremely helpful for unsteady people like me. I just love the 4K movie quality from this camera!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Camera for the money! I bought this camera to upgrade from my SX710HS. It is a definite improvement. I actually have this camera for it's zoom and carry a G7X MarkII as my primary camera. So with both I have good coverage from Macro to Long Distance. Also this camera has the new Digic 8 sensor in it that makes a big difference. This camera works well in low light but is not at it's best. Well lighted or sunlight conditions is where it excels. The "Zoom" on this camera is excellent and that is what I bought it for. A plus is the macro and movie modes. I wish a software update could be had for a multi frame focus (Face + Tracking) like the G7X MarkII. But that might be asking a bit much or I need to look further into the cameras adjustments for this. Right now I have it on the exact same focus adjustment as my Canon but I only get a single point focus and it is random on the screen. Overall this is a very good point and shoot camera. All the shooting modes have their place and work well. I tried to supply as many pics as I could to cover the cameras ability (Limited to six).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great zoom and image stabilization I received the first batch of the new SX740 this week and am amazed so far. The 40x zoom and image stabilization make for incredible hand held photos. The hi-speed multi-shot mode at 10 frames per second at full resolution means you always get the best high-speed action photos.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4k video & 40x optical zoom Takes great pics & vids, Bluetooth & Wifi setup a little involved, no internal gps for location metadata unless you use a nearby cellphone bluetooth connection to provide the gps location to the camera. Canon Android app to transfer pics & vids to phone works smoothly over Wifi (not BT).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent camera, but problems with wear on some parts This is a fine travel camera, takes superb pictures, and its Digic 8 processor is noticeably faster than previous models. Silver-colored parts on the top and edges of the camera wear terribly with minimal use, with black plastic showing through. If I were to buy this again, I would buy the black model. Disappointed in this lack of quality from Canon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted I bought the Canon PowerShox SX740 a few weeks ago mainly for Vlog-related uses. The quality of picture and audio is amazing. The flip-up screen is very helpful. Highly recommend!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some Unusual Features One of the main reasons that I bought this camera was its Manual Focus feature. Unfortunately I have not yet figured-out how to effectively use the Manual Focus. With my limited experience with the camera, I usually give-up on Manual Focus and let the camera do the focusing. BUT the focal point is often not what I want. Also I also usually lock the aperture at f-8 in order to try to get best depth-of field. It is easy to lock the f-stop; this a handy feature. So far I have used a tripod all photos.
