The Canon PowerShot SX740 HS is equipped with a powerful 40x superzoom or even up to 80x Zoom Plus, allowing you to get much closer to your subjects and still producing astonishing image quality without the need to carrying multiple lenses when travelling.
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.
Thanks to its amazing DIGIC 8 image processor and CMOS sensor, holidaymakers can now record Ultra High Definition 4K resolution, even when recording time-lapse footage with an impressive 3840 x 2160 resolution at 30/25 fps.
The lens construction utilises 13 elements in 11 groups that includes 1 Hi-UD lens, 3 UD lenses, 2 double-sided aspherical lenses and 1 single-sided aspherical lens which all contributes to the quality of the image and effectively reduces spherical aberration and other optical aberrations.
The Canon PowerShot SX740 HS utilises Wi-Fi and always-on Bluetooth connectivity that allows you to always be connected to your iOS or Android devices in order to tag photos with GPS location, transfer your files directly to your device.
Have extreme fun by taking selfies in the self portrait mode using the approx. 180° flip-up LCD screen for perfect positioning and composition.
