With versatile creativity and compact design, the PowerShot SX740 is the ideal superzoom travel camera. Superb image quality, high power zoom, 4K quality movies, a wide range of creative effects, and easy wireless sharing make it pocket-friendly but powerful.
Despite the camera's 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, photos and videos are sharp and crisp. 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 and Bluetooth, which lets you transfer images and videos to your smart device. So you can share your photos instantly on social media, and safeguard your work with Auto Transfer which automatically backs up the files.
A 20.3 megapixel HS system ensures crisp and clear image quality, day or night. 10 frames per second continuous shooting allows you to capture that split-second moment. Canon's super-fast Digic 8 processor delivers pictures of natural colour and low noise, without the need for a flash, thanks to a high 3200 ISO level.
The SX740 features movie capture in stunningly detailed 4K UHD. Create 4K time-lapse footage, or select the perfect 8MP still from your 4K movie.
With 9 shooting modes, choose the best set-up for you. Use full manual control, or let the camera do the hard work with Creative Shot mode. This automatically takes six of the same picture and applies a range of effects. Meanwhile, Hybrid Auto records four second clips before each shot to create a mini movie. And Zoom Framing Assist automatically adjusts zoom for optimal composition.
180° Tiltable Screen
The 3" rear LCD monitor is fully tiltable up to 180°, so you can shoot from tough angles ...right up to high quality selfies with Self Portrait mode.
With a compact body of 39.9mm wide, and weighing just 300g, the SX740 is designed for portability.
