Hi guys , i got a SX40 a few weeks back, after seeing some of your wonderful pics i was convinced . Im delighted with my purchase , liking the manual settings and messing around with them . Here are some of my efforts so far , a few just snapped off . First has had some photoshop as you can see , others straight out the camera . The nightscene of my street was using a tripod with a 4 sec shutter and enhanced blue .

Today, I failed a shot to take a bird making its nest.
But i feel a nice "dynamic". What do you think?

Hi everybody,

I'm new to the forum and have decided to buy a Canon SX40HS, and have browsed the net for quite some time before deciding to make sure of the brand etc. I would like. I have also checked out your photos and are quite impressed with what is possible with this camera. Anyway, I suppose I´ll have more comments and questions in the future, but since this particular thread is for photos, I would be curious to know whether any of you have attempted to take a photo of the astronomical event occurring for the time being, namely the meeting of Venus and Jupiter? If so, it would be interesting to see how this camera handles the task.

Thanks in advance.

Using CHDK setting: Exposure: 40sec, Aperture:F16, ISO: 80

I think SX40 limit of setting is ISO 100 and aperture is F11 as shown in EXIF.
