PhotographyBlog: Canon PowerShot SX740 HS Review

The PhotographyBlog has completed their review of the Canon PowerShot SX740 HS.

The review seems to be a mixed bag, as Canon has selectively removed some features and added others.

The Canon PowerShot SX740 HS falls firmly into the “modest upgrade” category of camera releases, principally adding just two new features to a design that hasn’t really changed very much during the last few years. 4K video recording is the new headline grabbing feature, and for some people this will be reason alone to consider paying the full RRP for the latest model – for everyone else, we’d advise opting for last year’s inevitably discounted SX730 model instead, which only suffers in comparison by offering slower burst shooting rates – otherwise, it’s essentially the same camera.

Horrible image quality, even at ISO 100. No details, excessive noise reduction, softness. It's pretty sad but my Powershot A630 had much better image quality in 2006.

No it did not! That camera was slow, plastic lenses and a terrible shutter lag. Also image quality was not so good. The SX740 is a compromise and not so bad. Read the review.

Yes, it might have been slow and with shutter lag but the low ISO image quality was miles better. It had tons of detail at ISO 80 to 200.
This camera is 10+ years newer and more expensive. Better image quality is expected.
