Face Detection technology makes it easy for you to take great photos of people. The camera will automatically detect the face(s) in a frame to give it optimal focus, exposure, flash (if needed) and white balance. Smart Shutter adds fun and convenience to Face Detection because you can set the camera to release the shutter when someone winks, smiles or even enters the frame.
Special Scene Modes
Special Scene Modes have fun and creative filters you can add to your photos without having to use a computer. You can make a quirky portrait using a Fisheye Lens Effect or add a beautiful single-tone effect with Monochrome. Toy Camera Effect simulates a vintage look as if capturing the photo using a "toy" or pinhole camera.
Available in 27 Languages
With the new addition of Hindi, there are a total of 27 display languages from which you can choose: English, German, French, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Spanish, Simplified/Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Portuguese, Korean, Greek, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Turkish, Thai, Arabic, Romanian, Ukrainian, Farsi and Hindi.
Love it BUT
I bought this camera last year and I was amazed by it. I absolutely love it. However, I am forced to give it a 4 starts review because after having it for a little over a year, I already need to service it. Since it's been over a year, it is now out of warranty and I have to pay for the repair. I get a lens error message since it seems the lens is stuck. I have no idea how this happened because I have never dropped it or anything like that. It is a good purchase but I think it shouldn't need servicing so quickly.

I went into the camera world a year ago and now I'm taking AMAZING pictures for what is considered a low end camera. I have taken it past the limits of the zoom many times with crazy accuracy and clarity

Worth every Penny
I was in the market for a new camera that could tie me over till I got better at photography. I went a to a local retail store to and found several that were ready available in the price range I was budgeting myself in. After trying all of them I found myself going back to SX40 for over all speed quality and ease of use. I researched for another week and The Sx40 won out of the top names in the price range. That was 2 years ago and I'm still using it and have decided A DSLR is still not for me and all the weight and baggage I would have to lug around.
I will use this camera till it dies and if I can find another it will be mine!!!
