Canon PowerShot SX40 HS

Canon also made available a new super-zoom digital camera today, which doesn’t give you a ‘prosumer’ experience like the S100 (things like RAW mode and GPS are missing), but still has plenty of manual controls and a very versatile 35X optical zoom lens.

Canon PowerShot SX40 HS

  • New DIGIC 5 image processor promises better processing and noise reduction
  • 12 effective megapixel (1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor; smaller and different versus the PowerShot S100’s sensor)
  • 24 – 840 mm (f2.7 – f5.8) 35X optical zoom lens
  • Optical image stabilization (Intelligent IS changes stabilization mode depending on shooting situation)
  • 2.7 inch flipout and rotate LCD (230,000 pixels)
    Electronic viewfinder EVF (202,000 pixels)
  • Smart Auto and scene modes
    Full manual controls (but no RAW)
  • Zoom Framing Assist button allows quick and temporary zooming out for photo recomposition
