After owning the Canon SX40 for 6 months, I thought I would share my assessment of this awesome camera with my fellow My3Cents.

I have bought this camera for three reasons: long optical zoom, swiveling 3" LCD screen, and versatile camera settings. As you have seen the pictures Ive posted on the community forum, those pictures were amazing to look at with great image quality. With optical zoom, you can zoom into your subjects at 840mm optical zoom. Ive also took videos with 1080p and it turned out great, as well.
The price of this camera is $379.99, but considering how expensive the lens for a DSLR camera ($400.00 for a 250mm lens) the Canon SX40 is worth the price.
Canon Does Not Honor Warranty!
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- Today I became a dedicated, lifelong enemy of Canon. I bought an HD Professional XH-1As camcorder in July. The channel 2 audio went out right away. Ok, so those things happen with electronics. In ... read full review7 Replies - Latest reply on 07/13/2013

and the other half pin stripes. I have been told that since it doesn't happen all the time that there isn't anything they can do about it and tell me there's nothing wrong with the machine. My warranty expires in September and this has been happening since the machine was 60 old. I'll never buy another Canon product. This machine definitely has problems but Canon won't replace it. I've saved and faxed them the print outs, but no response. I've had other problems with this machine, but I guess I have to live with it. They only have a limited warranty, no replacement warranty is offered.
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA -- I worked in printroom. My company leased the Canon 7150 and it was installed in July 1st 2008. From the first day it would not work. I had to have a tech rep out constantly to fix it.
By early October they had practically replaced every part in the machine. One of them main problems was that sensors kept malfunctioning and had to be replaced alone with all other parts-including at one point a motor went out. On October 24th I noticed a film in the air early in the morning-then around 3pm the printer literally exploded black toner dust out of the machine-the walls-ceiling-carpet-my skin had black toner dust/developer all over the place. The dump station filled up and the sensor that should of turned the machine off malfunctioned so since this dump station was full it had no where to go so it saturated shooting out of the back of the machine-the whole room was a black fog-as a result my lungs became inflamed. I was put on steroids. I lost about 45% use of my lungs. I ended up in the hospital for 10 days. Two results of overexposure to toner dust are respiratory problems and cardiovascular problems.
It put a stress on my heart and I was very sick for a year-neither Canon or the leasing company helped me at all. As a result I ended up losing my job and had medical bills amounting to over $10,000.
We had a Canon Camera after 3 years we found some problem with that. We contacted Canon. Canon repaired the camera for free and paid for shipping. This is the customer support and have a dignity to stand by their product. 1 Replies - Latest reply on 02/17/2010Add reply

We bought this low end fax machine as a back-up light duty unit a few months ago on Ebay. The unit was brand new. From day one, it was obvious it was a strange machine. Unintuitive and complex control ... read full review2 Replies - Latest reply on 11/16/2009

This camera was not dropped or abused ever. It was kept in perfect condition. Tonight, I was using it and the lens froze open. I cannot get it to return no matter what I do. I spent almost $450 on this camera so I will now go on a public relations campaign letting EVERYONE know to avoid canon and it's inferior product. I will also let the other consumer advocacy groups who are out to help. 5 Replies - Latest reply on 04/30/2007Add reply
