Canon PowerShot SX40 HS review
The Canon PowerShot SX40 HS is a brilliantly versatile bridge camera whose key feature, that 35x optical zoom, is made all the more attractive by an excellent image stabilisation system.

Canon PowerShot SX40 HS review
The Canon PowerShot SX40 will keep many a superzoom snapper happy thanks to the huge 24-840mm zoom and great image quality. But the same design and low-resolution screen as its predecessor, paired with a focusing system that can’t quite outdo its rivals, leaves Canon’s latest superzoom feeling like a partial update rather than total success. Good images, but the SX40’s just not quite the best right across the board.

A little slow, but immaculate image quality should compensate for people who are happy to take their time over photos

Canon PowerShot SX40 HS review
There's much to like about the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS. It's rich in features, with a powerful zoom, a sharp lens and plenty of creative tools. The price is the only stumbling block. At £380 it isn't bad value, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ48 boasts similar features and spec while undercutting the SX40 HS's price by a third. That puts Canon on the back foot, but when the price begins to fall, this is the one to go for.
