  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Canon PowerShot S40: (4 megapixel compact) The PowerShot S40 offers an amazing combination of manual controls, exposures and features in a small, robust and (almost) pocketable package.

Kipróbáltuk: Canon PowerShot S40

14 June 2002
  • Summary: A PowerShot S40 nem csak külsőben, de tudásában is nagyon hasonlít kisebb testvéréhez, az itt bemutatott PowerShot S30-ashoz. Mivel a gépek azonosak, a bemutató jelentős része megegyezik az S30-as bemutatójával.
