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.

Will this camera take decent wildlife photos?
Asked by: Quinn
The Canon PowerShot SX740 HS Digital Camera will take decent wildlife photos because of the 40x optical zoom. For even better-quality photos, I would recommend a 1-inch sensor bridge camera.

Hello, I'm a little bit confused here. This web page claims that this camera don't have interval recording but Canon's official web page claims that the camera has time-lapse movie function. Is there any difference between those functions? Thanks.
Asked by: Daniel
I've not found that feature on my SX740. It's a good compact camera and I use it as a travel backup to my 5D Mk IV.
