FEA­TURES

The lack of a viewfinder, touch con­trol and RAW file shoot­ing lim­its the score, but other as­pects im­press

BUILD QUAL­ITY

It’s a nice-feel­ing cam­era small enough to fit in your jacket pocket, yet doesn’t seem un­bal­anced when the lens is ex­tended

HAN­DLING

It doesn’t take long to find your way around the con­trol sys­tem, the menu isn’t too long and the but­tons and di­als are re­spon­sive

QUAL­ITY OF RE­SULTS

Best re­sults are achieved in bright light at the wide-an­gle end of the lens, but it can be frus­trat­ing to use the long­est point of the lens

VALUE FOR MONEY

With the Pana­sonic TZ90 cost­ing less yet in­clud­ing a touch­screen, viewfinder and RAW shoot­ing, the SX740 isn’t es­pe­cially good value

OVER­ALL

The up­rated pro­cess­ing en­gine gives the SX740 HS ad­van­tages over the SX730 HS, but the 40x zoom fails to de­liver hand­held, so other mod­els are more at­trac­tive.
