  • SX730 review but similar to the SX740 specs
    Reviewed by TaikoDog - March 26, 2021

    Wrote this for my SX730, but the specs for the SX740 are similar for still photo. Love this thing! Most concerts don't allow cameras with removable lenses. This one is the best as it has a 40x OPTICAL zoom....(don't fall for cameras that boast digital....you will NEVER get a clear pict using digital zoom) You can be the envy of your concert going friends using their iPhones trying to capture an image like this....! Last pict at The Stones concert shows how far back I was and still got some incredible photos no phone camera would achieve. Stop relying on your phone for everything!!!!!

  • Great compact camera with solid zoom.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Itty - September 28, 2019

    Bought camera for trip to Africa. Camera gets great pictures using optical zoom and good pics using digital zoom. I got many of the best pictures in my group with others using full size DSLRs. Auto focus can be slow at times in the video mode. Using a small tripod stick helped steady the small camera on long shots.

  • What a wonderful camera. Takes great pictures.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Lucy - July 27, 2019

    I love this camera. It takes very crisp clear zoom pictures. It is so easy to just point and shoot. I love the different settings also.

  • Great for catching outdoor action.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by GamerMom - May 18, 2021

    I am extremely please at the clarity and resolution I am getting with my images. The photo of my daughter jumping is over 75 yards away. The soccer pictures have quick movement and the ball is rolling. I shoot on the action mode for soccer. My low lighting shots weren't as great, as expected, but I am still please. The pink and blue shirt images were late in the day and it was overcast. The bird's tongue was lapping up the juice concoction and it came out wonderfully clear as well.
