  • Stunning quality even at full zoom and low light,
  • Slow frame capture rate and no RAW.
  • Canon has raised the bar considerably in terms of image quality, quietness of operation and low light performance. This is thanks to its new HS System, but it's not as speedy as its rivals and it could do with a display upgrade and a RAW option. ...

  • Huge lens reach means you shouldn't miss a shot; fast shooting/slow motion video modes; large controls and buttons aid ease of use,
  • Pricey; plasticky feel; bulky,
  • This upgrade of the SX30 IS doesn't change a great deal but low light performance was good, as was slo-mo capture ...

  • Big zoom, Angle adjustable rear monitor, Large well marked controls
  • Pricey, Low resolution EVF, No Raw file capture or hotshoe
  • For those photo opportunities when shuffling your feet forward or back in order to get the framing you want simply isn’t an option, the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS delivers the goods with its extremely broad focal range (not to mention tilting LCD screen)

  • 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 s...
