I don't often do reviews but the nice folks at PluggedIn.co.uk have invited me to do some just for them. And to show how nice they are they're letting me share them with you for FREE.
The Canon SX40HS has some pretty impressive features - an optical 24-840mm zoom with image stabilising, 12.1 megapixels which is more than enough, a kind of grad system for darkening skies and it shoots HD video as well.
The Canon SX40HS isn't a DSLR - it's a top end point and shoot which is small enough to take anywhere without needing lots of space for lenses etc and it will take nice pictures However I do have one or two issues with it.
Just a few words to say how much I enjoy watching your videos. I would never have shot this image 6 months ago,now with your video tuition I'm more confident.
Knowing how light works, how to use it and what to look for when creating the composition made a huge difference in my photos. Before, luck played a part in my shots and now I know what to do to take nice pictures. Going from luck to knowledge after 121 training is invaluable!
