  • 12.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor + Canon HS System
  • 1080P Full HD Video
  • 35x Optical Zoom
  • HDMI output
  • Powerful DIGIC 5 Image Processor for stunning performance
  • The PowerShot SX40 HS is a versatile compact point-and-shoot camera that easily captures amazing photos and videos. The PowerShot SX40 HS is a versatile compact point-and-shoot camera that easily captures amazing photos and videos. The Canon HS SYSTEM boosts low-light performance with the new Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor and a high-sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor. This advanced Canon technology delivers stunning image quality with reduced noise and blur. Colors are more vibrant and white balance is true-to-life. The 35x Optical Zoom offers incredible reach and range, allowing you to shoot any scene, near or far. The Optical Image Stabilizer helps images come out steady and clear, and a 24mm ultra Wide-Angle lens makes it easy to take pictures of large groups of people, tall buildings, expansive landscapes and much more. The camera also features a 2.7-inch Vari-angle LCD for great shooting flexibility. Packed with an array of powerful technologies, the PowerShot SX40 HS is a convenient digital camera capable of brilliant image capture.

    Canon's high powered 35x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom (24-840mm) with Optical Image Stabilizer delivers magnificent images whether you are up close or far away. 35x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom and 24mm Lens
    The PowerShot SX40 HS is equipped with a Genuine Canon 35x Zoom lens that provides the telephoto power to bring your distant subjects incredibly close. It also features a useful zoom range that begins at 24mm wide-angle and extends to 840mm telephoto (35mm equivalent). The 24mm ultra Wide-Angle allows you to create shots with dramatic perspective and makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings. This superb lens delivers outstanding optical performance throughout its zoom range. It's advanced design employs UD glass, double-sided aspherical glass-molded and ultra-high-refraction-index glass lens elements to effectively suppress chromatic aberration while maintaining a remarkably compact size. The camera uses a VCM (Voice Coil Motor) for high-speed, quiet, energy-efficient lens movement with precise control.

    2.7-inch wide Vari-Angle LCD enables easy viewing from any angle.
    The PowerShot SX40 HS features a convenient and highly useful 2.7-inch Vari-Angle LCD screen that swivels out almost a full 180 degrees. It also rotates through approximately 270 degrees, letting you tilt it up or down to shoot at low or high angles. You can compose freely even when shooting from difficult vantage points and use the full range of angle adjustment even when the camera is mounted on a tripod. You can even rotate the LCD facing forward to capture perfectly framed self-portraits and to join group shots. The PureColor System LCD screen has 230,000 dots, giving you a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback and using the camera's menu functions especially convenient.

    12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor combined with the new DIGIC 5 Image Processor creates the Canon HS SYSTEM for improved low-light performance up to ISO 3200 and enhanced image quality.
    The latest-generation Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor brings phenomenal increases in processing speed and power. Improved chip architecture and algorithms deliver greatly expanded functionality with further refinement in image quality. Improved noise reduction produces clearer images when shooting in low light at high ISO speeds. Enhanced i-Contrast performance adjusts differences between light and dark areas to achieve even more natural-looking results. The faster processing speed also results in faster continuous shooting capability while maintaining full image quality. The DIGIC 5 Image Processor also makes possible a new, highly advanced automatic white balance system. Whereas conventional white balance makes an overall adjustment based on a single type of light source, the new Canon Multi-Area White Balance analyzes several areas of the image to determine whether different adjustments are needed, for example, for the main subject and the background.

    Canon HS SYSTEM
    The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider range of shooting situations. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in PowerShot cameras: a high-sensitivity imaging sensor, which is able to capture more light; and the DIGIC Image Processor, which actively reduces noise with high-speed image processing. The 12.1 Megapixel Canon CMOS sensor in the PowerShot SX40 HS incorporates advanced light reception technology that enhances sensitivity. The new DIGIC 5 Image Processor provides a major boost in noise reduction, expanding the usable ISO range to an amazing high of ISO 3200. The Canon HS SYSTEM thus lets you use higher shutter speeds to capture clearer images with reduced noise and blur.

    Capture stunning Full HD 1080p video in stereo sound with a dedicated movie button; zoom while shooting and play back videos on an HDTV via the HDMI output.
    In addition to the Canon HS SYSTEM, the combination of the advanced CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor in the PowerShot SX40 HS makes it possible to shoot crisp, clear high definition video. Imagine the fun and excitement of being able to shoot spectacular 1080p Full HD video with stereo sound that you can later watch on your HDTV or download to your computer to share with family and friends. The PowerShot SX40 HS shoots Full HD video at 24* frames per second, ensuring clear lifelike motion images with a beautiful cinematic quality. It also shoots beautifully detailed 720p HD video at 30 fps.**
    *Actual frame rate is 23.976 fps.
    **Actual frame rate is 29.97 fps.

    Dedicated Movie Button, Wind Filter and Optical Zoom While Shooting
    It's never been easier to shoot videos with a PowerShot digital camera. The PowerShot SX40 HS has a dedicated movie button that lets you start and stop recording instantly. There is no need to go through layers of menus or operate switches or dials to switch to and from video recording mode. The camera is always ready to shoot stills or video whenever you want. The PowerShot SX40 HS also incorporates an electronic wind filter, which suppresses wind noise that can muffle or distort the sound. And unlike less sophisticated point-and-shoot cameras, the PowerShot SX40 HS lets you use the full range of optical zoom when you're shooting a video.

    HDTV Playback via HDMI with CEC Support
    It's easy to enjoy and share the videos you shoot with the PowerShot SX40 HS. Simply connect its HDMI terminal to your HDTV using an HDMI cable. And because the PowerShot SX40 HS supports HDMI-CEC technology, you'll be able to control the playback of your images and videos on any CEC-enabled HDTV using the TV's remote control. (CEC - Consumer Electronic Control - is part of the HDMI specification, enabling components in a system to communicate with one another.)

    iFrame Movie Support
    With the PowerShot SX40 HS, you can also shoot video in the Apple? iFrame format, which is a computer-friendly standard that speeds up importing and editing of videos. It keeps file sizes small, making it more convenient to upload or e-mail high-quality videos. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video applications, making it unnecessary to perform time-consuming and often quality-degrading conversions.

    Intelligent IS automatically chooses from six different modes to optimize image stabilization for the shooting condition.
    The latest advance in Canon Optical Image Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system automatically selects among Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod IS modes. When shooting video, the system automatically selects among Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod IS modes. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make the most effective IS settings to assure the steadiest possible image.

    Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical, providing excellent image quality in many difficult shooting situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.

    High-Speed Burst HQ allows for continuous capture at a maximum of 8 frames while maintaining superb image quality and Super Slow Motion Movie records video at high speeds to allow playback in slow motion.
    Utilizing the increased processing speed and power of the new Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor, High-Speed Burst HQ makes it possible to capture fast action stills at full resolution during continuous shooting. The results are exceptionally high-quality images recorded in rapid sequence. In this mode, the PowerShot SX40 HS can capture a maximum of 8 shots in a single burst. The continuous shooting speed is approx. 10.3 fps.

    Movie Digest
    Creating a video containing highlights of a family vacation or an important occasion is a lot easier than you might think. When you use Movie Digest on the PowerShot SX40 HS, the camera will automatically record a short video clip (up to approximately 4 seconds) every time you shoot a still image. That entire day's worth of clips will then be automatically combined into a single video. Movie Digest does all the work, so you can sit back and enjoy your video!

    How does this work? When you activate Movie Digest, the camera continuously records a "loop" of video up to 4 seconds long into an area of the memory card reserved for this feature. Every time you take a still photo, the video clip residing in memory at that time is appended to a file that will eventually become the day's highlights video. The following day, the camera will start a new video file. Movie Digest does not affect regular video shooting, so you can use it and still switch between still and video capture as desired.

    Although the beauty of Movie Digest is the ease with which you can create a video of the day, you can, if you wish, edit the created videos on your computer. Version 6.8 or later of the included ZoomBrowser EX (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Mac OS) software lets you freely select and delete unwanted scenes from your Movie Digest videos.

    Zoom Framing Assist button aids in tracking and capturing subjects during super telephoto photography.
    With its 35x Optical Zoom lens, the PowerShot SX40 HS has the telephoto reach to capture subjects a long distance away. At maximum telephoto, however, it can be very difficult to track a moving subject while trying to steady the camera. Zoom Framing Assist is an inventive feature that makes it much easier to use the camera's powerful zoom lens. When you press and hold the Zoom Framing Assist function button, the camera will automatically zoom out to include a wider angle of view, enabling you to more easily locate your moving target on the LCD screen or through the electronic viewfinder. Once you find it, releasing the button will cause the lens to return to its original telephoto position, intelligently keeping the subject in focus so that you?re ready to shoot and capture the perfect close-up moment.

    Improved Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper settings for the camera based on 32 predefined shooting situations.
    Photographers of all levels appreciate a camera that takes the hassle out of capturing beautiful images. The PowerShot SX40 HS gives you Smart AUTO - sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button. Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture, whether you're shooting stills or video. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is compose then take your shot. You get the results you want.

    Face Detection Technology & Smart Shutter
    Face Detection technology makes it easy for you to take great photos of people. The camera will automatically detect the face(s) in a frame to give it optimal focus, exposure, flash (if needed) and white balance. Smart Shutter adds fun and convenience to Face Detection because you can set the camera to release the shutter when someone winks, smiles or even enters the frame.

    Best Image Selection
    Best Image Selection is an easy way to get great results almost every time you take a picture. When you press the shutter release, the camera will rapidly shoot a series of five images, then assess the images for any unwanted facial movements and camera shake. Out of the five images, the camera will select and save the best one. Image resolution is 1984 x 1488 pixels when shooting with Best Image Selection.

    Available in 27 Languages
    With the new addition of Hindi, there are a total of 27 display languages from which you can choose: English, German, French, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Spanish, Simplified/Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Portuguese, Korean, Greek, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Turkish, Thai, Arabic, Romanian, Ukrainian, Farsi and Hindi.

    By Charles of the lake (Albany, NY) June 17, 2013
    Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX40 HS 35x Zoom 12.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 2.7" Vari-Angle LCD (CNPSSX40HS)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Stabilization, Tilt /Swivel LCD, Viewfinder
    Cons:
    Other Comments: I found out about this camera from my brother-in law. He raved about it as did others. We also own a Canon SX260, which my wife now uses. Both cameras are excellant, but I would rather take the SX40 with the viewfinder in bright conditions. The images are some of the best I have seen. I recommend this camera to anyone. (substitutes are SX30 (older) & SX 50 (newer) with a 50X zoom.

    2 out of 5 stars   Not What I was Expecting
    By Stevia the amateur (Central Coast, California) June 13, 2013
    Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX40 HS 35x Zoom 12.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 2.7" Vari-Angle LCD (CNPSSX40HS)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Tilt /Swivel LCD, Good Image Stabilization, Easy To Use, Large Clear LCD, Good Image Quality
    Cons: Bad Macro Hard To Use, SOMEWHAT COMPLICATED, Poor In Low Light
    Other Comments: I bought this to replace my old Powershot which had lots of buttons on the frame for macro, portrait, etc. I like to be able to do closeup of flowers, bugs, etc. occasionally. While this camera focuses really great at a distance, the macro feature is really complicated to use so your subject may fly away before you ever get your photo. Hard to focus. I really liked my old camera and this one is a big disappointment.

    Cons:
    Other Comments: I don't have a car, so I've had to get creative in my yard with the camera. It does a wonderful job of "seeing" what I see & capturing it. I enjoyed capturing sunlight streaming from behind clouds with my Canon 40D, but it is too heavy for me now. This camera is perfect & I really like the 35X zoom esp during a full moon. I bought a tripod, but don't need it bc the IS is so good! Takes way above average photos of clouds w/o any special filter

    Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX40 HS 35x Zoom 12.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 2.7" Vari-Angle LCD (CNPSSX40HS)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Sharpest Lens - Amazing, Good Image Quality, Tilt /Swivel LCD
    Cons: H, Control Settings
    Other Comments: After reading reviews, the fast lens, long zoom, AND IMAGE QUALITY, I purchased this camera. The controls are a nightmare, easy to change by accident. The lens more than makes up for any design flaws. It is the sharpest lens I've ever used. The manual is on the computer. Prepare to spend a few hours learning to change the settings. "Program" setting works perfect. I recomend this camera to anyone who desires the very best image quality, at any price.

    Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX40 HS 35x Zoom 12.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 2.7" Vari-Angle LCD (CNPSSX40HS)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Stabilization, Good Battery Life, Large Clear LCD, Easy To Use, Good Image Quality
    Cons: Noisy At High ISO
    Other Comments: Great camera with lots of options for various situations (low light, night time, portraits, foliage, etc...) and some cute gadgets (toy camera mode, vivid colors, B&W with color accent, etc...). It does gets quite noisy in low light conditions though. Very good 35x optical zoom (also has a 4x digital zoom but it's kinda useless as the quality decreases exponentially). High speed movie is great but at 240fps, the video quality is really poor. Still, it's a nice fun gadget to have. Installed the CHDK to shoot and .raw format and made some pretty great HDR pictures. Highly recommended camera.

    Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX40 HS 35x Zoom 12.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 2.7" Vari-Angle LCD (CNPSSX40HS)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Large Clear LCD, Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Quiet, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Good Image Stabilization, Great Digital Video, Tilt /Swivel LCD, Fast Shutter Speed
    Cons:
    Other Comments: This Canon SX40 HS is the best camera I've used to date for the price. The zoom is incredibly quick and long range, and the entire feature set is packed with all kinds of helpful aspects. I took this camera to an NBA game where I was sitting in the second tier, and I was able to get some great shots and some excellent video! Video is mainly why I bought the camera, and its quality does not disappoint. The only thing is I wish the camera had an external mic jack, but I'm going to buy a digital audio recorder to sync audio with.

    Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX40 HS 35x Zoom 12.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 2.7" Vari-Angle LCD (CNPSSX40HS)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Easy To Use, Good Image Stabilization
    Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay
    Other Comments: overall great camera. like i would expect from a cannon, it takes GREAT pictures -- colors look great almost every time. The optical zoom on this works well (digital zoom is...eh...a digital zoom and not worth using). Main/only complaint - I wanted to use this for baby/kid pictures and the shutter speed isn't as fast as I had hoped, nor does the processor allow you to take pictures quickly back to back. I know the camera has the "rapid burst" function, but the focus quality is lacking on this feature. anyways - this camera is a quality camera and wouldn't be afraid to recommend it.

    Pros: High ISO Performance, Tilt /Swivel LCD, Excellent 1080 Line Video, Good Image Stabilization, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Auto-shoot Mode, Many Excellent Features, Multiple Shots, Quiet
    Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Operation Often Complex
    Other Comments: Auto-focus and aperture operation during videos is great. Tracking Auto-focus works very well. Ability to use large-capacity SD memory is great. Some shutter delay in Auto modes. Requires a lot of study of the 220-page manual to learn all the camera's multiple abilities. Operation is almost "point and shoot" in Auto mode. Great 12 MP resolution. Great 35X optical zoom with image stabilization.

I haven't tried it on a sunset as yet. I'm not getting sharp image zoom shots--don't know why. The macro on this camera is very good.

    Other Comments: I'm very happy with this purchase! This is replacing my Fuji SD 8000, as a point of comparison. I'm still learning the lay of the land here, but the learning curve is smoothe. I wish there was a printed manual included instead of only a starting guide; while shooting outside, looking functions up on a pc-based manual isn't practical.

    Cons: Noisy At High ISO
    Other Comments: I've done my research and fell in love with the SX40 HS. It has everything my mother would need to film her vacation and take as many pix as she wanted at such a high resolution. She loves the special effects (especially "vivid"). The tilting screen is a life saver when you need to shoot high or low pix. The Digic 5 processor is great for capturing HD videos. Watch out for rolling shutter. Practice your panning and limit how much you zoom in and out. Using either one of those too much screams amateur.

    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization
    Cons:
    Other Comments: This is definately more camera than I need, but fortunately it has an 'auto' mode so the camera can take care of most of the details by itself. Some things to be aware of: It does not come with a memory card and it has no internal memory, so if you don't have a memory card laying around (like an SD card) you'll have to get one before you can take any pictures. It also uses a rechargable battery pack which will have to be charged before using the first time (about 2 hours). The paper manual included just gives the basics on how to setup the camera and take pictures and movies. To see how to use all the fancy features you'll need to access the docs on the CD. I haven't used the camera much, but the only thing I don't like about it so far is the lens cap doesn't seem to 'snap' in place. I have to tug on it's cord to make sure it's secure.

    Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX40 HS 35x Zoom 12.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 2.7" Vari-Angle LCD (CNPSSX40HS)

    Pros: Love The Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Good Image Stabilization, Good Image Quality, Tilt /Swivel LCD
    Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Camera Body Feels Cheap, Missing Modes
    Other Comments: I like to take mostly outdoor photos. Also when traveling for that far away shot. I haven't used this camera much since purchase. The last digital camera I purchased was the Canon S3 IS in 2006, so getting this new one was a bit of a shock in many ways. The body feels cheap as it's mostly plastic. The 2006 had a metal body - and the SX40 is lighter than the 2006. Photo modes are missing like foliage, indoors, fireworks, snow, portrait etc. I don't take movies so the HD movie capability doesn't really interest me. I was just looking for greater zoom and higher pixels. I think I'll be happy when I have more time to play with the camera!
