Canon SX740 HS – Screen Failed!

Update! I got the Canon SX740 HS 40x optical zoom for my trip to Cambodia. The Canon SX740 is sold online for about $379- $400: . I also brought my Samsung Galaxy phone: and Olympus Tough camera ( ) on this trip.

After 2 weeks of use, the flippy screen doesn’t turn on. It worked fine in Hong Kong, but once i got to Cambodia, the screen failed. The camera still shoots, its just the screen doesn’t work. i tried resetting the battery, but nothing worked.

i was in Angkor Wat wait for the sunrise at 4 AM, when i realized my camera screen didn’t turn on. so i shot everything in wide without at viewfinder! I got decent shots, but its disappointing that this camera failed so easily.

I also brought my Olympus Tough camera ( ) and Samsung smart phone ( ) that still work.

I now reach for my Samsung S9 for fast selfies and photos. My Olympus TG3 for travel, macro and underwater photography. My Sony A77 DSLR for high detail photo and video shoots.
