Product Expert compact cameras

The Canon PowerShot SX740 HS is suitable for photographers and videographers who want to make high-quality recordings. You can record detailed videos in 4K quality. In addition, you can take clear photos, thanks to the 20.3-megapixel sensor. Motion blur is reduced by the optical image stabilization, which is useful when manually taking pictures in dark locations. You can use a 40x optical zoom, which prevents you from losing image quality when zooming in. When zooming in from a distance, the Zoom Framing Assist will help you localize your subject. You can easily make vlogs or selfies with the tiltable screen. You can then send them wirelessly to your laptop or tablet via WiFi using the Canon Camera Connect app.
