    Good, bad and bottom line - CNET Reviews

    Good

    The Canon PowerShot SX40 HS has a flexible lens range, very good image stabilization, excellent photo quality for its class, and shooting modes for every kind of user.

    Bad

    The SX40 HS's shooting performance lags behind that of the competition and has a couple potentially irritating design points.

    Bottom Line

    If you're after a wide and long lens and excellent photo quality, the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS is a standout. In features, design, and performance, though, it's a bit lacking.

    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Geat camera, just point and shoot! I absolutely love this camera. It is so easy to use and the zoom is amazing. Pictures are so clear. It is a lot of fun using the filter effects. Even if you aren't technically competent, the auto feature will do all the work for you--all you have to do is point and shoot! 12/24/2012
