Canon PowerShot SX740 HS Digital Camera (Silver)
Key Features
  • 20.3MP CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • 24-960mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • 40x Optical Zoom with OIS
Few things will be too far away for the silver 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.

For those who use this for nature, landscape, and birding - is it at all water and weather resistant? How about the case - waterproof?
Asked by: Carol
I’ve owned several versions of this camera over the years. I do NOT think you should consider it water or weather resistant. It’s a great camera, and I use it every day for nature shooting. But I would never expose it to extreme weather. And about the case — what case? This camera does not come with a case.

Can I use this camera for shooting 4K video of computer builds and able to use it as a facecam for twitch/YouTube streaming? Thanks in advance.

To answer your requirements, I recommend you review the online Canon SX740 HS User Guide before your purchase. http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/1/0300031221/01/pssx740hs-cu-en.pdf The 3.0-inch tilt-type LCD may be helpful for the applications that you mentioned. Also, you might need to know that the Canon SX740 HS has a crop for 4K video. I use this camera for general photography in the field, and I keep the camera in its case attached to my belt. I have been very happy with the Canon SX740 HS.

Can the movie button be turned off?

Can the movie button be turned off?
Asked by: John
The video record/stop button is small and recessed (unlike the shutter button), so it's unlikely you'd press it by accident. Unfortunately, the button's design is a problem when you need to press it again to stop the video recording. It messes up and makes jerky the last couple seconds of video recording while you're trying to find and then press the button.
