DIGIC 8 Image Processor

The powerful DIGIC 8 Image Processor that’s incorporated into the Canon PowerShot SX740 HS camera is designed to actively manage many of the advanced camera settings, so that holidaymakers can achieve true 20.3MP results and rapid Hybrid autofocus throughout its zoom range.

Capture Rich 4K Ultra High Definition
