Canon has announced the September availability of the PowerShot SX740 HS, which its calling one of the most compact travel zoom cameras to offer 40x optical zoom (24-960mm) currently available.
Something called ZoomPlus technology allows the 40x optical zoom to ‘digitally extend’ by 80x. (Perhaps fancy terminology for simply zooming in on an area?)
The camera has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth smartphone connectivity, along with a range of auto settings for a point-and-shoot. The Canon Camera Connect iOS and Android app can be used to transfer photo and video.
The camera has 5-axis stabilisation, 10 fps continuous shooting, and fast autofocus.
Oh, and ‘for the fashionably discerning traveller’, the SX740 HS comes in sleek black or stylish silver!
There’s also a 180 degrees flip-up LCD screen that allows people to take flawless selfies.
