Based in the photos I think it was more bigger. The weight is well balanced. Macro photos are excellent in detail. The price is fine but the Lens must be in the case, is not expensive. The menus are not complex, easy to navigate & intuitive. The zoom is terrific differentiator. The review is going to be very interesting. Turn on is very fast. Raw format must be include in future releases. Can you recommend a ebook for master it? Problems: Definitively you need to hold well or use a tripod.

Only giving the SX40 HS 4.5 stars because Canon is deliberately leaving features out. But I will start with the Urgent Fixes. #1. Get rid of the Childproof Governor that the SX30 IS does not have Cant set the SX40 HS to 400 ISO and set the Shutter speed to 15 Seconds. Must be fixed. #2. Shutter Lag, Depress shutter button half way focus lock press for Shot there is a deal breaker of a shutter lag. #3. View Finder, Non-useable like looking a a bad 1960's Tube Color TV through a toilet paper ...

Moved from the SX20IS through the Nikon P500 to the Canon SX40HS. The advance in image quality is pretty amazing, and I love the long zoom and the 1.5-2x digital tel-extender. Against all odds, it works. Going on 3 frames per second with a fast (class 10) SD card. Great for landscapes, great for wildlife, great for macro. Love it! Problems: I do like the macro mode on the Nikon P500 better, but I can live with the Canon's macro as a trade off for the added image quality.

Bought the camera for Yellowstone wildlife. Love it, high sensitivity is real. Was easily able to photograph elk and bison at dusk. Was also able to take excellent photos indoors without flash at the Dinosaur Museum in Thermopolis. Rapid focus, and the burst mode works great. (Had to first teach myself blind panning as screen goes blank duing burst photography). Camera is quick to use, a must for suddenly appearing wildlife. Best wildlife camera I have ever used.

Only had the SX40 for a week or so, but already I can see how much better it is than the SX30 it replaced. The noise level on the photos is less, the IS is absolutely phenomenal even at the longest zoom. Amazing how rock steady the video is. 10 frames per second is darn fast, and works as advertised. Canon finally figured out the megapixel race needs to be limited to a reasonable amount that is based on the sensor size. 12 megapixels for this camera looks to be the sweet spot. Much ...
