Canon PowerShot SX730 HS - digital camera is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Great Best SX I’ve ever had (hmmm...sorry that sounds Xrated). Has a 40X zoom and what I like is that because of the small pocket size, it’s easier to find your subject fast way up in the tree than with a larger camera. In good light you can get some great bokeh considering the small sensor. I have a Canon G7X that I used to love and I prefer this one because it turns out to be more versatile because surprisingly, I can get some great macro shots too...and I have a Sony A6000 with a fabulous 90mm macro lens, and I’m quite happy with the SX730 in a lot of ways. Granted you have to get right on top of the bug, but I don’t mind personally, and the auto focus does the job for those close ups...easy. I don’t even mind that it has no eyepiece, though it might be nice, but I guess it keeps the price and size down, but with the swivel screen, you’re ok.I love it. It’s worth it. But get to know it so you can maximize its potential. Also it’s great that when transferring photos via WiFi to your can erase them off the camera from the tablet. Saves me time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, easy to use, and a flip screen! I haven’t used an actual camera in years, relying on the ever-improving image quality of smartphones for snapshots and vacation photos and videos.That said, as my wife and I planned our first foreign vacation in five years, I found I wanted an actual camera as my primary tool for recording the memories. I have grown increasingly frustrated with phones from both of the top two. The cameras in smartphones record sharp images and with two lenses and optical image stabilization, can zoom well. The problem isn’t image quality. The problem is no smartphone can do what a camera can do because phones all have a critical limitation: just a single button- either physical or software. All of the other modifications and adjustments that a camera can do to provide creative results or compensate for unique lighting or other circumstances, a smartphone just cannot do as easily or intuitively because it must all be controlled via software and a UI that involves cascading menus or some gestures or some other method. A camera, even a simple point and shoot style, has one or more physical levers, knobs, and/or dials that can carry out some of these functions. Sure, the best cameras have on screen menus too, but those are generally for system level adjustments. Given the desire to go back to a real camera, my first thought was to look at what I had used before. I’ve owned several Canon products from the EOS and Powershot lines. So I started there. Checking out the Powershot line-up for the first time in 5 years, I quickly focused on the SX 730. It was big enough to hold easily but still pocketable. The zoom was impressive and there was optical image stabilization. And I found a pleasant surprise in one of my favorite features from my old Canon G series cameras: the movable view screen. It had been 5 years since I bought a Canon, so I did look at what else was on the market, including a Nikon model and even one from Panasonic. The Nikon was similar to the Canon in every way but also was able to record video in 4K, while the Powershot tops out at full HD. That seems important at first glance. Scratching the surface a bit more, I learned that the Nikon and the Panasonic both record 4K at 30 frames per second. The Canon SX 730 records full HD at 60 frames per second. It isn’t hard to find videos on You Tube to show the frame rate is the significant difference here. My hands on time with the camera at a local retailer confirmed the Canon was the device for me. It felt immediately familiar: easier to hold than a thin smartphone, all the dials and knobs were where I expected them to be, the shutter button had the familiar stiffness I appreciate. And then there was that flippable view screen. The screen just moves in one direction unlike the clever two-direction screens of the old G series cameras, but it allows for easy viewing of low angle shots as well as accommodating the all-important selfies and video blogging needs of modern camera users. Unboxing the camera at home, I was immediately impressed with the optical image stabilization when using the camera for video. The zoom is immediately impressive. I loved putting my 128GB SD card into the camera and seeing that Canon still has just a four-digit shot counter. I was pleased the SX 730 clearly shows on screen when the user crosses the line from optical to digital zoom, but I was even happier that I can simply turn off digital zoom altogether. After an initial bit of experimenting, I went back on line to buy the camera a protective case, an extra battery and a cord to connect the camera mini USB to a PC so I could use a physical connection when wireless isn’t available or reliable. Video looks great on the SX 730 and my pictures have been pleasing with sharpness and bright colors. The camera has NFC, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi as ways to move pictures to smartphones or to the web. It also allows physical connections via USB or playback to a PC or TV via HDMI. My use of the camera thus far has been a pleasant experience without disappointments or unexpected behaviors. As for portability, the camera won’t fit in a shirt pocket like a smartphone but it fits easily into jacket pockets and the wrist strap keeps it safely handy for quick access. And I like that I can adjust exposure compensation with a simple press of a button and that shifting into special modes requires a turn of a physical dial rather than an accidental brush against a phone screen. I will still take quick shots and photos of the unexpected with a smartphone because it is always with me, but I am delighted to have a real camera again for travel, family events and special occasions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Viewing screen polarization is incorrect! All Canon cameras I've purchased to date can be used with polarized sunglasses in landscape mode, but NOT the SX730. Which renders it useless for me in bright sunshine. I'll try one more Canon camera, but if the polarization is incorrect, I'll return it and switch brands. Polarization should be listed among the specs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This is perfect. I have been looking for a portable, well-built camera with advanced features and a great zoom. My iPhone has been my primary camera for several years. The sx730 adds the zoom I need and takes great, clear pics. Well done!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not satisfied I lost my PowerShot SX610 HS while on a trip to Spain. I’ve decided to replace it with this one. Seeing some features exited me especially for the 180° tilt-type screen. Unfortunately as soon as I took it off the box, I was disappointed by the size. It’s huge and bulky. I used to take all my PowerShot anywhere I go by sliding it in my jeans pocket. This one can hardly fit in some of my jackets. If it fits in one, people would wonder what is in there. My second big disappointment is the placement where I can screw my tripod. IT IS NOT CENTERED. This is on the side and it is really hard to manage and most of the time impossible. The camera would tilt and fall. I should’ve just bought back the SX610.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small camera!! I bought this camera while on a trip to Europe. Amazing considering the size. The zoom is amazing and the optical stabilizer is great also (even without a tripod). The size is small enough to fit almost anywhere (jeans included). Great for good pictures without having to carry a big camera. the WIFI and Bluetooth is also a great feature and works great for transfering to IPAD or cellphone. Keep in mind it is a great point and shoot camera, not an SLR substitute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great point and shoot camera Bought this to replace my previous Power Shot 710 HS because I dropped and the lens jammed. Use for personal photos. Love the burn date to image feature that is the main reason for purchasing. Also use to make a movie with my Grandson - he is the creative guy, I just run the camera. We used the Power Shot 710 HS the last two summers and we are really please with this model, love that sound is played back when review scenes.
