      Canon Fell Short On This One - I love Canon too

      Posted

      We upgraded from our Canon PowerShot SX720 HS 20.3 MP Compact Digital Camera - 1080p a camera our whole family truly loved. Great photos, excellent video, and very easy to operate. We still have this camera and love it. One of the reasons I upgraded was I could use the same batteries I already had with the new camera. The good is this camera looks and feels great. Comes with an upgraded processor, 4k video and timelapse and a ton of bells and whistles. That is about where the good stops and the bad starts. With the upgraded processor it seems to have some lag from when the shutter is pressed and when the image is taken. Big problem, I am trying to capture action and you really have to adjust your timing, but that is just the start. The 4k video in a bright room was grainy and almost unwatchable - i didn't even share any of the dozen or so videos I took because they are so far from the quality I am used to. The focus on the video is another huge problem. It had trouble and would keep adjusting the focus during recording also adding to make these unwatchable. The photos also leave a lot to be desired. I tried every mode and auto and the same result. Grainy, unfocused, even in good light. Low light forget it. The 4k timelapse was okay, it takes 24 minutes to make a 24 second clip and that was okay. The photos/video just did not cut it for the pricetag. I took this back. I may buy another of the camera I bought this one to replace. I returned this unit for the video/photo quality - out of focus, grainy, even in good light. Check other reviews and judge for yourself - better yet go try one in person before buying to help avoid yourself the trouble of a return.

      Extremely excellent point and shoot for the price. Takes quality shots, the zoom is amazing, the 4k video is such a plus I'm very happy with this I wanted to start my photography journey with this point and shoot then move up to Dslr, Icle or mirrorless but also wanted a quality in my pocket quick point and shoot I got that and more with this camera I'm very pleased. As a beginner I'm already taking some great shots with this point and shoot.

      Very good Camera at this price range

      I had to take back my Sony a6000 for overheating. I ended up getting this, had no idea it was a new camera. I got it more video but both video and photos are very good, and the best part this does 4k! I was not going to spend a lot of money for a 4k just yet, but when I picked it up at the store that is when I found out. If you looking for something under $500 this is the two go.

      I have the Canon SX720 and love everything about it so when I saw the 740 had a selfie pop up screen since I travel a lot by myself I thought I could not go wrong with it. It is so different. It is shakier to use and the shutter button is tricky. I have been using it a couple weeks and still have some blurry photos because it is too quick . I have not used it yet in low light.

      I am pleased with the performance. I've had several cameras of this nature and so far, I would rank this one superior! Still learning functionality but I can take pictures lol.

      I was looking for a quick, on the run, pocket sized camera and this fits my needs perfectly. Not so great in low light, but beautiful when things are properly lit.
