16 Reasons For for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

Smile Detection

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS features smile detection, and so do the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95, but the Nikon D7500 does 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.

HDMI

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has an HDMI (as do the Nikon D7500, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95), whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 does not have this feature. More ...

A HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port is an interface to transfer audio and video data between devices such as digital cameras, computer monitors, TVs and projectors.

A HDMI port on the camera allows you to connect the camera directly to a compatible TV for easy playback of your photos.

GPS

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a GPS, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, the Nikon D7500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95 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.

Wi-Fi

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS supports Wi-Fi (as do the Nikon D7500, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95), but the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 does not support this feature. More ...

WiFi connectivity allows you upload photos to your computer and the internet without connecting the camera to the computer with a cable.

WiFi connectivity makes it easier to upload your photos as you will not need a cable. Most cameras will also allow you to print photos via Wifi.

Bluetooth

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS features bluetooth (as do the Nikon D7500, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95), whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 does 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 FZ43, the Nikon D7500 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 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 89, but the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 scored 81, the Nikon D7500 scored 88, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 scored 86 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95 scored 88.

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 Customers Recommend It

71.5% of 655 customers recommend the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, however only 47.2% of 536 customers recommend the Nikon D7500.

Better Brand

Better Dkamera.de Review Score

Dkamera.de gave the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS a review score of 90%, however the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 only has a rating of 80% from the same site.

More Reasonably Priced

Our analysis of the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS was more reasonably priced.

Recorded Good Videos

27 Reasons Against for Choosing the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS

159g Heavier

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a weight of 276, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 is a 117g digital camera (159g lighter), the Nikon D7500 is a 720g digital camera (444g heavier), the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is a 658g digital camera (382g heavier) and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95 is a 217g digital camera (59g lighter). 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.

Lower Megapixels

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 20.3 digital camera, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9. That's 4.15MP higher than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (16.15MP), 0.6MP lower than the Nikon D7500 (20.9MP) and 2.1MP higher than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95 (18.2MP). 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.

10 Times Lower Still Image Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS supports a still image resolution of 1536 x 1536, however the Nikon D7500 supports a still image resolution of 2784 x 1856 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95 supports a still image resolution of 12416 x 1856. 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 is the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9), whereas 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.

Not Dustproof

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is not dustproof, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, the Nikon D7500, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95 are. More ...

A dustproof digital camera is one that is resistant to dust, and is sealed so that dust and sand can't get into the lens or the mechanics.

A dustproof camera is excellent for shooting in very dry climates or dusty areas, and will prevent accidental damage that would stop a normal camera from working properly.

Does Not Have a Shock Resistant

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS does not have a shock resistant, whereas the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, the Nikon D7500, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95 have this feature. More ...

A shock resistant digital camera is one that is protected against sudden shocks and knocks, such as from the camera being dropped or knocked out of your hand.

Having a shock resistant digital camera means that there is less chance of the camera being damaged or broken due to accidents.

Not Freezeproof

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is not freezeproof, however the Kodak Pixpro FZ43, the Nikon D7500, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95 are. More ...

Freezeproof denotes that the camera is capable of surviving extremely low temperatures before it stops working.

97% Smaller Digital Zoom

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 4 digital zoom digital camera, and so does the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9. That's 2x smaller than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (6x) and 116x smaller than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95 (120x). 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.

Lower Maximum ISO Sensitivity

Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is only 3 maximum ISO speed. That's 1,600 higher than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (1,600), 48,000 lower than the Nikon D7500 (51,200), 22,400 lower than the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 (25,600) and 9,600 lower than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95 (12,800). 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.

4 Times Lower Video Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, however the Nikon D7500, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95 have a maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K) 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.

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Pixels Pixels Video Resolution

The best video resolution supported by the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels. Whereas the best video resolution supported by the Nikon D7500, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95 is 3840 x 2160 (4K) pixels (4 times higher video resolution). 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.

7% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS has a display diagonal of 3, and so do the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX95. That's 0.3" larger than the Kodak Pixpro FZ43 (2.7") and 0.2" smaller than the Nikon D7500 (3.2"). More ...

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

118,000 Pixels Lower Display Resolution

The Canon PowerShot SX730 HS is a 922 display resolution digital camera, and so does the Nikon D7500.
