Looking into the following cameras.  Want to spend $350 at most.  Going to be used for everyday pictures (low light issues with some won't be a deal breaker), some home videos (doesn't need to be super fancy).  Want something that will last a while and takes decently nice photos.  Pros and cons of each would be helpful, as well as any personal experience!  Thank you! :) Nikon Coolpix L830 ($200 on amazon) Nikon Coolpix P530 ($350 on amazon) Canon PowerShot SX510 HS ($220 on amazon) Canon...

Hello, I am new posting a question here, but it has been only because all my questions have been always answered in this place :) Until now. I am a proud owner of a Fuji X10, I love this camera. The macro mode is awesome, the IQ and colors are amazing... I use this camera for macro, portraits and landscapes. I also have a Canon SX40 for animals, when I can not approach them (birds and some reptiles). The quality of the Canon is ok when the light is good and the aim of my pic can be focused...

Hello. I have been using a SX40 for 2 years now. Great camera, better than SX60 in my opinion... The only thing: In the mid-tele and tele I have a huge vignette at the corners. Do you know how to avoid it ? What's the reason for the vignette ? Thanks for you help! MaikEb

When I shoot video with the Canon SX40, if there is a momentary burst of noise (like a cough in a crowd when video taping a lecture, or like a golf club hitting the ball) the audio cuts out for a second or so.  I assume that this is the audio auto leveling trying to readjust the audio sensitivity, but for me, it causes some real headaches. Is there any way to control the recorded audio level manually, or to disable the auto leveling?

I ran across the following on a web page in a list of features of the Canon Power Shot SX40 HS, under the title, “Product Description from the Manufacturer: “"High Dynamic Range: The camera combines three different exposures to get one evenly lit image."I am unable to find how to do this on my SX40 HS or in the SX40 HS manual. Yes, I can set the camera to take three different exposures of the same scene, but nowhere do I find how the “camera combines” them. This I have been doing in PP. Is...

My wife has had this camera for a while and both of us would like to know if there is a setting we are missing or have to reset.  Everytime a picture is taken a picture of that shows up in the viewer.  She wants the camera to operate without that prior picture being displayed.  She wants just a simple point and click setting as in most cameras.  We can review the pictures later.
