I love canon power shot especially when my kid is playing water polo and I need to zoom in and shoot

Can you really manage to point at, focus the camera, shot and obtain a clear and sharp picture, all at long end of the lens aiming at a kid??? They must have been sleeping perhaps....

That was the moment when my SX went to the bottom drawer of my desk and my old 20D was removed. This camera is so slow I never managed to take a picture of my kids with it...

The SX40 is still a great power zoomer.

Thanks Wayne and Racollins! The image was taken at the north shore of Lake Tahoe looking west on a stormy summer day. The tree is a madrone (madrona) or Arbutus as you identified correctly.

wow thank you all

I had Canon SX40 and I was happy in general for 2 years. Some how I felt maybe better to update. I sold it. And I got Canon SX50. MP is 12 and f3.4, and I don't need that much zoom and I felt low light is not good other than if you are using hand handle night mode which needs waiting time in every click :/

I'm planning to give back the cam in couple of days and get the SX40 and I need advise.

Thank you all.
