Canon SX40 HS Review
This camera is simply amazing!
I wanted to get a camera which could produce high quality indoor pictures from any distance. I mean my original point and shoot camera couldn’t do that! Enter the Canon Powershot SX40 HS. Let me tell you one thing, this is an all in one camera and you will not find a camera like this which is short of a full on DSLR that can go 35x optical. When it first arrived I wanted to test it. So I charged my camera and it took about 1.5 hours to completely charge. After charging the camera I took it to my friend’s party to take pictures. I didn’t know what to expect initially however this camera performed beautifully after nearly 100 shots and upwards of 10 minutes of video. I came back home and downloaded the pictures and the camera still reported 100% battery level. This was really amazing as unlike my other cameras its battery lasts quite longer and the picture results were AZMAING!
I just love the processor of this camera as it works really well as compared to my previous cameras. Its stabilization is pretty neat even at 840mm (equivalent) and the pictures that I have taken by this camera are crystal clear with minimal chromatic aberration and fringing. This camera really works the way it is supposed to and it really is worth its price. My only complaint so far is that the zoom framing assist button is placed where my thumb would normally be so it is kind of difficult to shoot without pressing it! This can be a bit bothersome for me at times. Other than that I think this is a great all round camera however it is not pocket-able or light enough to be carried everywhere. If you are looking for a good camera and don’t want to go full on DSLR for $600 basic model upwards to $2000, then you should definitely buy this camera.
