Ergonomically-designed for a secure grip, the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a 180-degrees tilting LCD screen for selfies. The 40x optical zoom will make it easier to zero-in to that pimple you want to examine closer. ;-P

Weighing only 300 grams, the PowerShot SX730 HS has 40x optical zoom which can be doubled to 80x zoom with Canon Zoomplus technology.
“The Powershot SX series is proven for its high zoom capabilities, enabling far-reaching sight for photographers such that fine details can be captured even from afar. Going a step further to broaden functionality, features such as the smooth skin mode and tilt-type screen on the PowerShot SX730 HS will help users to take the most flattering and high-resolution selfies,” said Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore.
The PowerShot SX730 HS is also equipped with the Zoom Framing Assist feature which helps the user keep the subject within the frame.
Should the subject move out of frame while user is shooting, the Zoom Framing Assist feature can be activated with a push of the button, to zoom out and quickly locate the subject, keeping it in the frame.
An Auto Zoom feature also allows the camera to adjust the zoom factor automatically, to maintain the optimum framing based on users’ desired setting.
For portraits, the Smooth Skin mode offers three levels of skin “enhancement”.
