Canon PowerShot SX40 HS review

What Digital Camera
8 October 2011
  • Summary: On the surface the SX40 HS is almost indistinguishable from its SX30 predecessor, and much the same can be said about using the camera. It's disappointing to not see significant advances in focusing speed and performance, and while a speedier 10.3fps Scene mode is available it's still not class leading in speed or ability. The small and low resolution LCD screen also feels out of date compared to the competition and there's still no sign of Raw shooting.

  • Summary: PowerShot are the larger of two small Digital Camera ranges offered by Canon . This unit is larger than most and on first glance could be mistaken for a DSLR unit. The main difference is that its lens is not interchangeable.

  • Conclusion: Wenn Sie möglichst viel Zoom in einer Kamera wünschen, dann kommt die SX40 HS in die engere Wahl. Das 35fach-Zoom deckt einen gigantischen Brennweitenbereich ab. Die Bildqualität erreicht aufgrund des geringen Bildrauschens knapp eine sehr gute Bewertung. Dem gegenüber steht der zu große Schärfeverlust am Bildrand und die nachlassende Detailtreue ab ISO 400. Die Ausstattung spricht komfortorientierte und erfahrene Fotografen gleichermaßen an.
  • Pros: Geringes Bildrauschen, Manuelle und automatische Programme, Kurze Auslöseverzögerung, Ausdauernde Akku
  • Cons: Auflösungsverlust am Bildrand, Details ab ISO 400, Auflösung Display und Sucher
