I don't have to apologise to anyone on this forum for anything, you are the one who seemed to think one of my previous questions was funny or not important. I've just got two words for someone like you BITE ME!!

I've heard of the pictures being soft on top quality. I'm trying to find out for one of my customers the reason for this.

If any one can help, I'd be grateful.

I read in another forum that the A40 may do less in-camera sharpening than other makes at the same price level. The other thing that makes pictures seem less sharp is the fact that the A40 seems to be affected by "bloom" ( smearing) at high contrast edges, such as a dark building against white clouds. I'm not sure if this is related to the fact that the A40 seems to slightly overexpose or if it's more a function of not having a 'knee' circuit, like the older Canon camcorders. The 'knee' effect reduced brightness in portions of the scene that were extremely bright and would overexpose if not adjusted. This helped keep shadow detail in high contrast scenes, but not 'blow out' the highlights.

Here are the samples I've accumulated so far regarding the right-side blur problem with the A40:
