Canon PowerShot SX40 HS Review

What Digital Camera
30 September 2011
  • Summary: Make no mistake, the SX40 isn’t a budget camera and will launch with an asking price around the £460 mark. Indeed that’s the same price as a budget DSLR system, or you could pick up a Sony SLT-A35 with 18-55mm lens for the same cash. On the surface the SX40 HS is almost indistinguishable from its SX30 predecessor, and much the same can be said about using the camera.
  • Pros: Good image quality, decent high ISO performance, lens barrel markings, optical stabilisation
  • Cons: Low resolution 2.7in LCD, electronic viewfinder, expensive

Canon PowerShot SX40 HS review

1 October 2011
  • Excerpt: For a while it looked as though bulky, expensive bridge cameras were going to be squeezed out of the market by entry-level SLRs and compact system cameras, but the latest generation has come back fighting. Optical zoom ranges are now reaching the mid-thirties, and with burst speeds in excess of 10fps, these cameras are well equipped for sports and wildlife photography.

Test: Canon PowerShot SX40 HS (Digitalkamera)

20 December 2011
  • 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
