  • Conclusion: Your decision to buy the Canon Powershot SX40 HS is likely to be based on whether or not you prefer the simplicity and lower price of a digital camera with a fixed lens or whether you prefer the ultimate flexibility of a Digital SLR. If you prefer a camera where one lens covers just about all photo opportunities then the Powershot SX40 HS is hard to beat. There are no real issues with picture quality and it has a set of features that few other models can match.

  • Excerpt: The Powershot SX40 HS is Canon's latest release into the superzoom market, replacing the previous SX30 model. Still retaining most of the key design features from its predecessor, the SX40 builds on the original blueprint with the inclusion of Canon's new DIGIC 5 image processor, which enables rapid-fire shooting up to 10.3fps.

  • Excerpt: Like most big zoom bridge cameras, Canon's PowerShot SX40 HS is a chunky beast not a great deal smaller than the entry level digital SLR it takes its styling cue from. However it is, after all, the whopper of a 35x optical lens that is the main selling point, boasting a comprehensively and creatively broad focal range stretching from 24mm to 840mm that would be otherwise hideously unaffordable or impractical for the average DSLR user.
