SX40 HS / FZ150 Comparison w/photo and video
Oct 9, 2011

OK everyone. I did not feel like trying to upload everything here, so I put together a few quick web pages. I did not go for a fancy look - I don't have time to make a nice website right now. What matters is there - the information.

Please be advised that these are solely my opinions based on trying both the SX40 HS and FZ150. There are some SX10 IS comparison pictures in one of the tests as well. I definitely don't mind hearing opposing views or someone pointing out something that I may have gotten wrong, but do not have time to argue with anyone who only intends on bashing my views.

I did all this work for myself and have no agenda other than making a decision on which camera I want to keep. I hope that all the time I put into this helps at least one person, other than myself, make a decision between these two really nice super-zooms.

One thing that I would really like to know: on the SX40, for some reason I am seeing some images go soft on the sides, mainly in corners. Has anyone else noticed this? I do not have a filter on or any other accessories on the camera.
