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.

I just received the SX40 from Amazon, today, and am seriously thinking about returning it in favor of the SX50. The only reservation I really have, is the higher minimum aperature of the SX50. Some reviewers on Amazon agree that compared to the SX40, the SX50 is much harder to use in low light situations. One even goes so far as to say that because of this, the camera really isn't a good all-around camera, but should only be considered a specialty tool for birders and other wildlife...

When I process shots from my SX40 in Photoshop the resolution from the camera is only 180dpi, even on the highest setting, this seems rather low to me even (even an 8 year old Nikon p5100 has 300dpi).   If i want to print at a3 or a2 as it says on the camera then it needs to be better resolution than 180dpi surely. Is there a way of changing the dpi from the camera?ThanksCS

I hear great things about the Canon SX40 HS and its video, but it has no external mic capability.I'd like to have a video camera or camcorder that would allow us to get really nice still shots with excellent HD video, obviously preferably with an external mic if possible. I will welcome any recommendations you have for possibilities. Thanks in advance for your...
