Sx40HS - Flukey Focus
What a shame that such a potentially great camera has to be ham strung by flukey focusing. I made about 12 shots of this same bird, from the same vantage point using 3 shot bursts. Only 3 were in really good focus for various reasons. A few were obvious camera movement, a couple was the bird moving the rest "fluky focus".
Getting good focus with this camera is a real chore. I used my P7700 with a much shorter zoom and found it so much more accurate with focus. Too bad the image size is so small!
Good thing this is digital. I'd go broke buying film at this fail rate.
Here's one of the good ones.
