Canon's latest point-and-shoot helps you take solid selfies

In case your smartphone pics just don't cut it.


Canon has been relatively quiet since introducing its EOS M6 mirrorless in February, but the company is getting ready to launch yet another camera soon. Meet the PowerShot SX730 HS, a point-and-shoot with a 20.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, the latest Digic 6 processor, a 4.3-172mm 40x zoom lens (24-960mm equivalent) and a 3-inch tilting LCD that lets you take high-quality selfies. To help with that last bit, Canon added new "skin" and "self-portrait" modes, which aim to make you more attractive by giving your face a smoother look.

As is the case with most digital cameras nowadays, the follow-up to the SX720 HS also features Bluetooth, NFC and WiFi, in case you want to control it remotely or share pictures wirelessly. You'll also find 1080p video at 60 frames per second and a battery that can be charged over USB. The PowerShot SX730 HS will be available in June for $400.
