OP­TI­CAL QUAL­ITY

While the 40x zoom is the main at­trac­tion, it’s best to stick to the wide and mid tele­photo fo­cal lengths to get bet­ter im­age qual­ity.

MACRO MODE

In Macro fo­cus­ing mode the SX740 HS can shoot sub­jects that are just 1cm from the lens at its widest point, ex­tend­ing its ver­sa­til­ity.

WI-FI

The built-in Wi-Fi and Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity works well, trans­fer­ring im­ages quite quickly and en­abling them to be shared on so­cial me­dia.

STA­BIL­I­SA­TION

Canon has given the SX740 HS five-axis im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion and it does a good job, but it’s hard to get a sta­ble view in the screen at 960mm.

NO TOUCH

Dis­ap­point­ingly, Canon hasn’t given the SX740 HS touch con­trol. This would be nice for nav­i­gat­ing the menu, or set­ting the AF point.

EX­PO­SURE

While the ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion con­trol isn’t com­pletely ob­so­lete, the Eval­u­a­tive me­ter­ing sys­tem han­dles most scenes well.
