I have always been happy with the quality of the pictures I got with my Canon SX40 HS, and especially love the 35X Optical Zoom it has. Unfortunately, the pop up flash is broken and I find it bulky, so I am considering buying a new, smaller, automatic (mostly use point and shoot, automatic settings) camera for our upcoming trips to Italy and an African safari. Since I want to be able to zoom in on wild animals from a distance, I'd like the new camera to have great zoom capabilities, but also...
Hi, Could someone please help me with the following: 1. I have a Canon SX40 camera and when I record video it creates a huge file (4 minutes video ~ 1.2 GB file). 2. Is there a way to reduce the file size by reducing the video quality as I searched and couldn't locate the right option to do so. (With my sony handcam (which is stolen now), I used to record a 1 hr video with a file size of approx 4 GB). Regards, Bhavnesh Kaalra
Hi, I am a UK based website designer and have today acquired a used Canon SX40 HS12 with which to do food photography. I have previously used a FujiFinepix which didn't offer a cable shutter release and was an altogether disappointing tool. Now I learn that the Canon hasn't a cable release as standard or somewhere to plug in a remote - which is frustrating. But I think the Canon is a much more versatile machine and I would be obliged to learn if there is a remote / wireless remote shutter...
Hello, New to the forum but a long time SX40 user and have recently run into an issue that has me completely dumbfounded. Simply put, when I print pictures at Walmart or Walgreens or the like, the photos are zoomed in and parts of the picture are cut off. It does not matter if I use the upload tool online or I take the SD card directly into the store, it is the same effect. Is there a setting that would cause this ? Thanks for your help! bronco7923
Hi, I just upgraded from a Canon SX40 HS to a Sony A5100 with a prime lens SEL 35mm f1.8. I really like the improved bokeh that I can get and the better low light photos I'm now getting. But I'm struggling to see a big improvement in outdoor shots. I still feel the need to use the Tonal Contrast filter in Nik (like in the image below). Is there any way to achieve the post-processed image just by using the camera? If yes, how do I do that? I'm trying to do away with post-processing on most of...
Looking into the following cameras. Want to spend $350 at most. Going to be used for everyday pictures (low light issues with some won't be a deal breaker), some home videos (doesn't need to be super fancy). Want something that will last a while and takes decently nice photos. Pros and cons of each would be helpful, as well as any personal experience! Thank you! :) Nikon Coolpix L830 ($200 on amazon) Nikon Coolpix P530 ($350 on amazon) Canon PowerShot SX510 HS ($220 on amazon) Canon...
Hello, I am new posting a question here, but it has been only because all my questions have been always answered in this place :) Until now. I am a proud owner of a Fuji X10, I love this camera. The macro mode is awesome, the IQ and colors are amazing... I use this camera for macro, portraits and landscapes. I also have a Canon SX40 for animals, when I can not approach them (birds and some reptiles). The quality of the Canon is ok when the light is good and the aim of my pic can be focused...
Hello. I have been using a SX40 for 2 years now. Great camera, better than SX60 in my opinion... The only thing: In the mid-tele and tele I have a huge vignette at the corners. Do you know how to avoid it ? What's the reason for the vignette ? Thanks for you help! MaikEb
