Canon PowerShot SD40 Digital Camera Review

Canon PowerShot SD40“The PowerShot Digital ELPH line of cameras has always been characterized by the sleek contoured look, the full array of features and the extraordinary picture quality they deliver,” states Yukiaki Hashimoto, senior vice president and general manager of the consumer imaging group at Canon U.S.A., Inc. “These newest Digital ELPH cameras continue that tradition of innovation, eye appeal, ease of use and imaging excellence, and will no doubt continue to delight our users and confound our competitors.”
Similar in design to its 5.0 megapixel predecessor (SD30 Digital ELPH model), the SD40 Digital ELPH series offers four new elegant shell tones in Twilight Sepia, a dark rich brown with gold accents; Precious Rose, a blushing pink attention-getter; Noble Blue, a shade worthy of the finest designer navy suit and, the soft yet solid sophistication of Olive Grey.
With Canons new Face Detection AF/AE technology (working in concert with Canons 9-point Autofocus system), all three of these Digital ELPH models can detect, lock on and track up to nine human faces in a scene simply by pressing the shutter button halfway. But, no Image stabilization and no Viewfinder.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
