Canon's PowerShot SX40 HS Digital Camera raises the bar for optical zoom lenses--way, way up. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a 35x, 24-840mm equivalent, zoom lens, taking you from a true wide-angle to an ultra telephoto suitable for wildlife and sports photography and, who knows, maybe even pictures of the stars (just kidding about the astronomy pix, kids). And it comes with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer so you'll be able to capture great shots even at super telephoto focal lengths without unseemly camera shake. A Zoom Framing Assist makes it easy to follow a moving subject, even using the super telephoto. 

The lens uses a double-sided aspherical glass-molded lens, an ultra-high refraction index lens, enhanced negative refractive power, and UD glass to correct wide-angle distortion and suppress chromatic aberration. With the 12.1MP CMOS sensor, you'll get high resolution pictures, whether you're shooting landscapes, pictures of the kids, or those 2 blue herons on the other side of the lake. 

The high resolution 2.7" Vari-Angle display screen makes it easy to frame and play back your photos and video--that's right, you also get gorgeous 1080p full HD video, which can be shot using image stabilization and full zoom, and, with stereo sound. The Super Slow Motion Movie function lets you capture everything in slow motion up to 240 frames per second. There's also Advanced Smart AUTO, which recognizes and sets optimal settings for 32 pre-defined shooting situations. Canon's proprietary DIGIC 5 Image Processor delivers faster, more accurate noise reduction for better image quality, even at high ISO ratings. This little beauty is ready to go out and play.

35x Wide-Angle Zoom Lens
Canon's high-powered 35x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom (24-840mm equivalent in 35mm) with Optical Image Stabilizer reduces camera shake to achieve amazing images whether you are up close or far away. Using the Zoom Framing Assist button aids the user in tracking and capturing subjects during super telephoto photography.
Vari-Angle Display
Large 2.7" wide Vari-angle LCD enables easy viewing.
Expanded Movie Modes
Shoots superb 1080p full HD video with stereo sound so you can fully capture those fun, memorable moments, and then view them with an HDMI output connector for easy playback on your HDTV. Dynamic mode enables users to use the Optical Image Stabilizer while shooting video in the wide-angle setting, and the Optical Zoom is now available while shooting video. Super Slow Motion movie mode allows you to capture high speed clips at up to 240 fps.
Smart Auto
Advanced Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper settings for the camera based on 32 predefined shooting situations, such as Sports, Smart Shutter that recognizes and captures a smile in your subject, misses a blink, and knows when you step into a self-timer shot, Super Vivid colors, Low Light, Poster, Color Swap, the popular Fisheye and Miniature effects, Beach, Snow, Foliage, Fireworks, plus Stitch Assist for awesome panoramas.
DIGIC 5 Image Processor
This classically-styled camera has a powerful DIGIC 5 Image Processor and 12.1 megapixels, which makes it a perfect device for any shooter.
Improved Power
This camera comes with Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, which makes powering up simple.
