Summary: Recived the camera and appeared great but when I tried to take pictures, the viewfinder is completely blurry, however the pictures appears to be clear. It's hard to take a good picture when you can't see what your taking it of:-(
Summary: Unbelievable zoom. Buuutttt... If you are considering the need for fast shots such as big game etc.You will not like this camera at all. They positioned the timer for the shutter on the thumb wheel and when you grab your camera to hold it.
Great service from the store but i dont recommend the camera for shootings on the beach

Summary: I got an incomplete package but as soon as i said something i got a refund so thanks for your great attention!!! Nevertheless, i would say to people to consider buying this camera if you want/plan to use it on the beach.
Excerpt: Just returned from a trip to Africa and am happy with the pictures I took with this camera. However, I specifically asked for a camera with a good viewfinder. The view finder was very hard to use, couldn't see clearly what I was taking a picture of.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
The bundle content is different than on the picture - that is not fair

Summary: Unfortunately the bundle doesn't exactly contain what was described and what was on the picture. The camera case is smaller as shown and doesn't have 2 side pockets. Appearantly it was recently changed to a smaller one since other customers were refering to a big camera case.
Excerpt: I am a birder and amateur photographer. I have owned, and loved, both the predessors to this model. Loved the SX40 so much I recommended it to numerous friends...think I must have sold 15 or so of those cameras for Canon.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Stabilization, Small / Compact
Summary: If you go back and buy the cable so you can read the instruction manual, you still have to take your computer with you so you can read the manual. My computer doesn't fit in my camera bag.
Pros: Great zoom with lots of options
Cons: NO instruction manual. No kidding. The manual comes on a CD that has to be loaded on the computer, but you need a cable to attached the camera to your computer before the manual will load and the cable is NOT included. Can't load your pic's either
