I've been dreaming and planning to buy my own camera especially now that I have a baby. And whenever the four of us goes out (daddy, me, Sofi and Isha), there's no one to take picture of us and we resort to taking the selfie camera. I think I've found the perfect camera in capturing our stunning selfies. It's time to up our selfie game with the latest camera from Canon that features a tilt-type screen, high zoom capabilities, and Smooth Skin mode that makes every selfie photo profile picture-worthy!
Canon recently announced the launch of the new PowerShot SX730 HS high-zoom compact camera. This pocket-sized addition provides high quality imaging and encompasses a high-sensitivity 20.3 megapixels CMOS sensor, up to 40x optical zoom, 180-degrees tilting LCD screen and advanced features such as Smooth Skin mode for enhancing self-portraits.
“We all know that Filipinos love taking selfies (or even groufies) as a form of self-expression. We are taking this experience a notch higher as the new Canon PowerShot SX730 HS presents easy to use capabilities and produces higher quality images that one can be more than proud to share with the world,” shared Benny Yu, Consumer Group Director of Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc. (CMPI). “They can be assured, too, of enhanced experience with its new features such as new date and time stamp, and wide range of connectivity capabilities for better organization and sharing of images.”
Bridging Distances with Powerful 40x zoom
For users who are accustomed to the portability of small cameras and desire high zoom capabilities, the PowerShot SX730 HS offers the best of both worlds. Weighing a mere 300 grams, the PowerShot SX730 HS has far-reaching goals. With a high zoom capability of up to 40x which can be doubled to 80x zoom with Canon Zoomplus technology, the PowerShot SX730 HS is capable of capturing stunning details of distant subjects such as wildlife and concert performances.
Taking creative shots and finding the best angles for self-portraits can now be a breeze with the PowerShot SX730 HS’s tilting LCD screen, which flips up to 180 degrees upward and downward. With three levels of effects to choose from via the Smooth Skin mode, users may bypass the reliance on filters to look their best. Coupled with the option to blur the background, depth of field can be achieved for beautiful portraits. The Smooth Skin mode is available in both the Self-Portrait mode and Regular mode. Along with a built-in Stabilization mode that suppresses camera shakes, sharp and high quality shots can be ensured.
Easy connectivity and instant sharing
The PowerShot SX730 HS is also equipped with a host of connectivity features. With Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communications) capabilities, users can easily establish a connection between the camera and their smartphones for photos and videos transfer, wireless printing, uploading onto social media and to use their smartphones for remote shooting via the Canon Camera Connect app. Additionally, with the built-in Bluetooth low energy technology, it allows user to switch to Wi-Fi connection easily to transfer or view images on the go.
