New arrival: Canon PowerShot SX730HS megazoom compact camera

Friday, April 7th, 2017

The new PowerShot SX730HS has 40x optical zoom and is targeted towards selfie enthusiasts. Available in Singapore end-May (price TBA).

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

The PowerShot SX730HS has a 20.3-megapixel CMOS sensor and a Smooth Skin mode for enhancing selfies.

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”.

Event: Canon Chinese New Year Lohei media lunch in Singapore

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Canon ushers in the Lunar New Year in Singapore with an early Lohei lunch.

Canon Singapore hosted the annual Lohei lunch with media at Aura restaurant at the National Gallery Singapore.

To the left of the menu in the cover photo above, you can see the PowerShot SX430 IS.

The immediate reaction upon lifting up the camera is that it is incredibly light.

So light that I thought it was a plastic prototype with nothing inside.

But it’s a fully functional superzoom with 45x optical zoom going from 24 to 1080mm.
