Re: New Member: First camera - Canon SX40HS

On the iPad I've been using:
(I'm blown away by how much can be done on the little device).

Ipad or SX40?

The SX40 is like my 150th camera, and my 15th digital. I bought it mostly for the wide end, but am very impressed with the long end and the fact that shots at ISO 1600 are very clean compared with other P&Ss and even compared to my Nikon D90 and D300. The stabilization is very good.

Battery life is quite good, and the movie mode is very usable. I wish it used AAs because lithiums last forever.

I haven't tried it with filters yet, but any camera benefits from a polarizer, if there is enough light.

It is far from a shirt pocket camera, but I transport it to where I am going in a shoulder bag, and once there, use the neck strap.

We haven't had enough sunlight in Seattle since I got it, but I am looking forward to giv

it a workout.

Good luck!
