Photographers of all levels appreciate a camera that takes the hassle out of capturing beautiful images. The PowerShot SX40 HS gives you Smart AUTO - sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button. Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture, whether you're shooting stills or video. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is compose then take your shot. You get the results you want.
VERY NICE ALL-AROUND CAMERA
Sharp image quality in all focal lengths, even when lens is wide open. Because image size is so small I shoot most of my photos at widest aperture to make the background as out of focus as possible. Also, I have a tremor in my hands. so when I do macros or shoot in dim light, the image stabilizer is a great help.
Very handy to carry around. I use a wrist strap rather than the neck strap that it come with.

Forget the DSLR
The Alaska cruise was planned and I needed to upgrade from my trusty AE-1, I went to buy an EOS Rebel. When I tried the SX40HS and realized that I did not have to change lenses... I was sold. I could have the focal length in a point and shoot. Great performer. Picture quality is outstanding. Weight of camera did not negatively impact the excursions.The camera is easy to use, easy to operate, ergonomic and intuitive... although the features are plenty and more than I may ultimately use. The results are outstanding!!
