Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I bought this camera as an update to my Canon SX700HS which has always been a great performer. The advantages of the SX740HS are the 40X zoom and the fold up screen which helps with taking selfies on holidays. The high resolution movies are really super on my TV. The ability to take time lapse looks great although I haven't tried it yet. My one and only gripe is that the menu doesn't provide for the ability to set the new time zone when you travel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Carryanne Good camera, very powerful zoom. Picture quality is also very good! I also found out I can take a selfie with the Canon App from my phone not just flicking the LCD 180 degree!! There is only one thing I am not so happy that is the LCD is not a touch screen, if it is this will be perfect!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok but not more I upgraded from a Canon PowerShot SX720, a camera i really enjoyed. For a p/s cam i was able to take good photos with all settings and it was easy to operate. As i had earlier versions and the sx720 stopped working i upgraded in the same production line as i could reuse equipment and batteries from the old one. The cam is a little bigger then the pre models but the make and look is still nice. Took me a while to get used to the mode dial on top instead of the back is harder to change when only using 1 hand with a big hand. With a new/upgraded processor it has some delay from when the shutter button is pressed and when the image is showed/taken and if you are not holding the cam still in this time or using a tripod you are not getting a clear shoot. Not happy with the quality of the photos at all. Used different modes and auto and the same results. A lot of grain, unfocused - doesn't matter what light conditions and if zoomed in or not. A downgrade for me from the SX720 and for the moment my phone, the LG V40, is doing better in all cases.
