Hi all,

Have been reading all the useful information on this forum about the SX40 - I saw enough pros to get one for a cruise to Hawaii next month. I was wondering if anyone has specific suggestions about settings to either use or avoid. For example based on what I've read, a 4:3 aspect ratio seems to be best to maximize future usefullness (I can always crop post processing to whatever size print I'll make).
Thanks in advance for your advice.

My advice will be to use and watch your histogram and exposure, especially on highlights as the SX40 seems to want to clip them.
