With versatile creative control and compact design, the PowerShot SX730 is the ideal camera to keep with you at all times, making it perfect for travel. Superb image quality, high power zoom, a wide range of creative effects and easy wireless sharing make this a pocket-friendly but impressively powerful photography companion.
Despite the camera's easy portability, it features a powerful zoom to get you up close to the action. 40x optical wide-angle ultra-zoom zeroes in on far subjects. Enhanced 80x ZoomPlus gets you even closer, while keeping image quality high.
Stable Shots Every Time
Even when you're shooting at full zoom or handheld in low lighting conditions, you'll be able to capture sharp, high quality, detailed photos and videos. 5-axis Advanced Dynamic Image Stabiliser plus Intelligent IS adapts to any shooting conditions to ensure your images are not affected by camera shake.
You can share your images quickly and easily with friends and family thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC which lets you transfer images and videos to your smartphone, tablet or to the Canon Connect Station. You can even upload your photos to social networks directly from the camera, so you can share your work instantly.
A 20.3 megapixel HS system ensures beautifully crisp and clear image quality, day or night. Fast continuous shooting allows you to capture that perfect spontaneous one-off moment. Digic 6 with iSAPS processing technology drives the camera speedily and effortlessly, delivering pictures of gorgeously natural colour and low noise, without the need for a flash, thanks to a high 3200 ISO level.
Full HD Movies
Full HD 1080p resolution allows you to shoot footage that is sharp and delightfully detailed. Running at 60fps, even the fastest action is rendered with exceptional smoothness. One Touch Movie Record button gets you rolling in an instant, while the camera's advanced image stabilisation features keep everything steady and blur-free.
With 11 shooting modes and a wide range of 'My Colours' photo effects, the creative possibilities are endless. Use full manual control to show off your creativity, or let the camera do the hard work for you by using Creative Shot mode. This automatically takes six of the same picture and applies a range of effects and filters to five of them so that you can select the best. Meanwhile, Hybrid Auto mode records four second clips before each shot to create a fun and interesting movie which takes viewers on a journey through your day.
The 3" rear LCD monitor accurately and clearly relays the camera viewpoint, with 100% coverage of the frame. Plus it's fully tiltable up to 180°, so you can shoot from tough angles. Fully-flipped, it makes the SX730 ideal for taking superb quality selfies!
With a compact body, weighing just 300g, the SX730 is designed for supreme portability. It's perfect for keeping with you every day, taking on holiday, or long travel assignments.
