18 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

725g Lighter

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a weight of 276, but the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652 is a 1kg digital camera (725g heavier), the Nikon D7500 is a 720g digital camera (444g heavier), the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II is a 498g digital camera (222g heavier) and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is a 453g digital camera (177g heavier). More ...

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Smile Detection

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS features smile detection, and so do the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, however the Nikon D7500 and the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II do not. More ...

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

GPS

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a GPS, and so does the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652, whereas the Nikon D7500, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and the Sony α Alpha A6500 do not. More ...

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Multi Burst Mode

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS features multi burst mode (as does the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652), but the Nikon D7500, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and the Sony α Alpha A6500 do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Multi burst mode' is a special setting on a digital camera to allow it to take multiple photos in very quick succession at a single button press.

Burst mode is very helpful for sports photography, or any time where you are trying to capture a fast-moving subject.

Bluetooth

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS features bluetooth (as do the Nikon D7500 and the Sony α Alpha A6500), but the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652 and the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II do not feature this benefit. More ...

Bluetooth is a communication standard used to wirelessly transfer data between devices. In a digital camera, it is used to send photos between the camera and mobile phones and tablets, or to control external peripherals (such as flashes).

Bluetooth is a necessity to use certain modern camera peripherals, so without this tech you will be limited with what extras you can use.

Built-in Flash

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a built-in flash, and so do the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652, the Nikon D7500 and the Sony α Alpha A6500, whereas the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II does not. More ...

Cameras with a built in flash illuminate the subject in low light conditions. A flash can also be used to place more emphasis on the foreground or lighten dark shadows.

Cameras with a built in flash can take pictures in low light conditions. Since no external flash is required, cameras with a built in flash are smaller and easier to carry.

Better Kagoo Score

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652 scored 85, the Nikon D7500 scored 86, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II scored 85 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 scored 86.

Cheaper by £41

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS costs £40.70 less than the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652, costs £349.71 less than the Nikon D7500, costs £765.71 less than the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and costs £723.25 less than the Sony α Alpha A6500.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this digital camera.

More Popular

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a more popular choice amongst buyers.

More Customers Recommend it

70.4% of 665 customers recommend the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, whereas only 21.4% of 14 customers recommend the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652, only 46.1% of 549 customers recommend the Nikon D7500 and only 50.6% of 583 customers recommend the Sony α Alpha A6500.

Better Brand

Canon digital cameras have an average rating of 95%, whereas Kodak only has an average rating of 85.8%, Nikon only has an average rating of 91.6%, Olympus only has an average rating of 82% and Sony only has an average rating of 91%.

Better Well Designed Technical Features

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS reviewers thought the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS was better well designed technical features. Over 70 people thought that it had brilliant features and three people thought that it also had a powerful motor.

More Easily Connectable to Other Devices

Our analysis of the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS was more easily connectable to other devices. Several people thought that it had wifi capacity, bluetooth support and gps.

Has a Better Lens That Was Good

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a better lens that was good. Over 100 people thought that it had a superb zoom and several people thought that it also had an excellent autofocus and had a good lens.

22 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

3.9MP Lower Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 20.3 digital camera. That's 0.099999999999998MP lower than the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652, the Nikon D7500 and the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II (20.4MP) and 3.9MP lower than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (24.2MP). More ...

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Half As Big Image Sensor Size

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a 1/2 to 1/2.5" (1/2.3)" image sensor size (as is the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652), however the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II has a 4/3" image sensor size. We do not know what type of image sensor size the Nikon D7500 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 have. More ...

Optical sensor size is one of the most important factors affecting the image quality produced by a digital camera. Compact digital cameras have smaller optical sensors due to the reduced space available in the camera body. Digital SLRs and Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILCs) have large optical sensors to achieve maximum image quality.

A larger optical sensor produces better quality photographs. A 4/3" sensor size has a 2x crop factor compared to 35mm film, while a 1/4" sensor size is significantly smaller and will result in lower quality images.

Only 2736 X 2736 Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS supports a still image resolution of 2736 x 2736, whereas the Sony α Alpha A6500 supports a still image resolution of 4240 x 2400. We do not know what type of still image resolution the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652 support. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

Only 5184 X 3888 Pixels Pixels Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a maximum image resolution of 5184 x 3888 pixels pixels (as are the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652 and the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II), but the Nikon D7500 has a maximum image resolution of 5568 x 3712 pixels. More ...

Image resolution refers to the amount of pixels that make up an photo taken on a digital camera. It is measured as the width x the height of the image - so a 1280 x 720 resolution camera can take a photo that is 1280 pixels wide and 720 pixels tall.

Higher image resolutions mean that the photos are comprised of more pixels, which translate to more detailed and higher quality photos. Also, because they are larger photos, they can be displayed on larger screens or printed out at vastly increased sizes without losing detail.

50% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652. That's 4x smaller than the Sony α Alpha A6500 (8x). More ...

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Vastly Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a maximum ISO sensitivity of 3, and so does the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652. That's 48,000 lower than the Nikon D7500 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 (51,200) and 22,400 lower than the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II (25,600). More ...

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Lower Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, whereas the Nikon D7500 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 have a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels and the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II has a maximum video resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. More ...

'Maximum video resolution' measures the largest possible video that the digital camera is able to record.

A larger video resolution means the camera can shoot videos that will be sharper, more detailed and have more clarity.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. But the best video resolution supported by the Nikon D7500 and the Sony α Alpha A6500 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution) and the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II is 4096 x 2160 pixels (4 times higher video resolution). We do not know what types of video resolution the Kodak PIXPRO AZ652 support. More ...

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS also supports 1280 x 720 pixels and 640 x 480 pixels video resolutions.

The video resolution is the size of the image that the camera can record in video mode. It is measured in pixels where the first value is the number of horizontal pixels and the second value is the number of vertical pixels.

A higher video resolution will be noticeable when playing back videos on HD televisions. The video will appear sharper and more life like. Recording video at a higher resolution will fill your memory card more quickly though.
