Reminded me of a CSM with his men! Shot on Bridlington front from about 50/80 yards. Trying out the new Canon Powershot SX40HS bought for my wife. I am amazed at the quality and quite sharp images even at 35X zoom. (840mm equivalent.) The image stabilisation must have come on in leaps and bounds.

Camera hand held with elbows resting on railings. About 500mm I would think. Av at f8 and ISO200. Shutter speed would be about 1/500. Might have to rethink my distrust of image stabilisation.

Have already had a number of shots from this camera accepted into libraries. The problem remains slightly slower operation than a DSLR - slight shutter pause before firing - subject can move, and slight image to card download delay.

Certainly a very 'regimented; composition, which certainly proves that your out-goings have paid off.

Strong 'L' shaped composition, perhaps the title could be 'Grumpy old men'.

As you say, it certainly seems to be a decent pocketable camera.

Need a big pocket, Frank. It's about the same size as the smallest Canon/Nikon DSLR cameras, but the advantage is nothing else to carry and a huge zoom range. It also takes the full size external flash units. Macro is really poor though - only works at wide angle, so hardly macro. The HD video is also excellent and integrates seamlessly with that shot from the 7D as you might expect from the same stable.

My wife insists I take it next time we go abroad - and no other gear!

I picked up this one form thumbnail the other day.. I didn't know what to say about the camera, apart from the photo's POV made me laugh..But when you said that you will take it only on your holiday, it reminded me my experience with my old bridge camera... of course, yours is a lot better. I just wonder if you can select the focus. I remembered that when I used my bridge camera, I couldn't control the depth of field manually, only depended on the auto-zoom stops, sometimes it was not exactly the point that I wanted.

Seem to be able to focus continually, although manual focusing is slow and I've only ttried it from a tripod. Av allows up to a smallest aperture of f8, but depth of field with the smaller sensor is large.
