I think the idea of reviewing digital pnone cameras is a good one. Let'sremember that this is a digital photography site. Phone cameras aredigital cameras, and we're going to see continuing advances from many manufacturers. I don't own a digital phone, but am considering buyingone, and I'd likt to see lots more reviews like this one to help me inmaking an intelligent buying decision. So keep 'em coming, DPR, andI'll read them all.
raywes: Nothing has come along in a while to compete with the Sony HX100v, but this changes everything. Along with the Panasonic FZ150, these two cameras will bed the new leaders I predict. And I thought I had my mind made up about purchasing the FZ150 already.
I see no mention, in the SX40 narrative, of GPS. Canon has apparently decided it's unnecessary, yet the narrative mentionsusing the camera on an African safari. Sony has some work todo on image quality, and I'm going to wait for the successor tothe HX100V to see if they can get it done. If the HX100V canbe used as a guide, its successor will have GPS.
