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.
