I run a website about toy cars. I shoot almost exclusively model cars under standard flour lights. I have a SX13o that has served me well. However I want to improve the quality of my workFirst steps is of course myself. Been studying about what my current camera can do and try to better understand how these cameras work.The camera I have is damaged and I need a new one.The SX40 looks good and within budget. I don't need the max zoom features of the new 50.Will this SX40 be the right path? I...

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...

Hi,The differences of interest between these two cameras seems to be that the new model has RAW, a higher resolution screen, a few more ISO options, much slower shots per second and a slower lens of 3.7 versus 2.8 (or something like that).But I have read people's reviews about AF speed and the failure of the SX40 to have long exposures.So can the SX50 do long exposures of more than 15 seconds ?Does high ISO options compensate sufficiently for the slower lens in the SX50 ?Is the AF speed in...
