Identification and Background ¶ 

The Canon SX40 HS camera was designed to be a successor to the SX30 IS and an upgrade from the SX1 IS models.

This model is a big improvement over the SX1. This model improved the resolution from 10 to 12.1 megapixels as well as increased the image size from 3648×2736 to 4000×3000.

Though it comes after the SX30 IS, there is no notable upgrade, with the resolution being downgraded from 14.1 megapixels to 12.1, as well as the image size from 4320×3240 to 4000×3000 pixels. The only notable improvement is that the camera is slightly lighter than the SX30.
