If you’re looking for a new camera but don’t really want to invest in a mirrorless or DSLR system and its lenses, we guess the next best thing you could go for would be a compact camera. There are some who argue that our phones can do a much better job than some compacts these days, and while that might be true, there are some who might still prefer a dedicated device.

If that’s you, you might be interested to learn that Canon has officially launched its new compact camera in the form of the Canon PowerShot SX730 HS. This is the company’s latest compact and with its 20.3MP CMOS sensor, it is certainly no slouch. The SX730 HS will also feature a 40x optical zoom lens that’s equivalent to a 24-960mm, so whether you want to shoot wide or you want to get up close, those options are available to you.

The camera will also be powered by Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor and will come with a 3-inch 180-degree upwards tilt LCD display. It will support 1080p Full HD video capture at a buttery smooth 60fps, a self portrait mode, geotagging, and there will also be built-in WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC connectivity.

There is even a pop-up flash that looks like it can be tilted/angled, so if you want to do some flash bouncing you technically could, although to what extent remains to be seen. The PowerShot SX730 HS is expected to be released in June 2017 where it will be priced at $400.
