I have the Canon SX40 HS and the Canon SX50 HS.  Do you any examples of how the lag time in your SX40 HS failed you? Please post them.

for SX50 there are no any lag in sunny time shot, but in low light (like party) get a bit lag But not significantly.

you will see clear lag in a long exposure shots, like 15sec, or with CHDK set tha exposure at 1 or 2 moment

john,  i wonder if we are on the same page???!!!  you ask: "examples of how lag time failed me"??

here's my problem:  compose the photo, than take it.  than there is a 2-3 second delay/lag time before it comes up on screen or in viewfinder.

by the way by calling canon they will send you the 150page manuel.  maybe i should refer to it & see if i can turn off this screen showing the last pic taken which is when the lag occurs. thank, lonfrankphoto.

At First I too was disappointed with I thought shutter lag. Now it hardly bothers me at all except when shooting HDR w/CHDK.I probably tend to take a shot tough and then recompose. I used to get a busy signal but Ive found with low level formatting of my card and using the EV I really dont notice it anymore. If that helps at all.

You can download the manual at that site.

What you called lag time is not lag time.

If you bought your camera at a local camera store, you need to go back and get help. If you did not buy the camera from a local camera store, you should have, so they could assist you.  In learning to enjoy your camera.

The SX40, and probably most all EVF cameras, are slow if you are used to shooting with an Optical viewfinder camera like most DSLRs. However, it is just noticeable, not a a big deal once you get used to shooting with the SX40 (or 50).

I assume you are talking about focus lag time in the above paragraph. If you are talking about lag time between pressing the shutter release and when the picture is taken, I don't notice that in my copies.

I use the 7D and 5DIII. I bought my SX50 after I bought them and after owning the SX40 already knowing the limitations and advantages of an EVF camera. The SX40 (50) superzooms are welcome additions for me when I use them in situations suitable to them. BIF for example are pretty much out of the question. But most wildlife still shots are excellent.

Also, I find myself using the Macro mode when I need a quick hand-held shot.

It is a great multipurpose camera and the more you use it the better it gets.
