The Optical Image Stabilizer helps images come out steady and clear, and a 24mm ultra Wide-Angle lens makes it easy to take pictures of large groups of people, tall buildings, expansive landscapes and much more. The camera also features a 2.7-inch Vari-angle LCD for great shooting flexibility. Packed with an array of powerful technologies, the PowerShot SX40 HS is a convenient digital camera capable of brilliant image capture.
Optical Image Stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical, providing excellent image quality in many difficult shooting situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.

Great Product, great price, no surprises!!! . It does not get any better. I had done a lot of research and finally decided on the Canon SX40HS I am not disappointed. I'm moving up from a Canon S3IS also a great camera, just older
Not shipped after more than a week12/1/2012
I ordered this camera on November 24. It is now December 1 and the product has not been shipped - it is listed as "Processing." Needless to say I am so far extremely disappointed with this vendor. I would certainly think twice before ordering from them again. This is surprising to me given the high reviewer ratings BUYDIG gets.

Awesome camera. Great price.
Very good photo quality, with low noise through ISO 800; Incredible 35X, 24 - 840 mm zoom lens; Optical image stabilization -- camera will select the proper IS mode for you; Flip-out, rotating 2.7" LCD display offers good outdoor / low light visibility; Good selection of manual controls; Smart Auto mode picks a scene mode for you -- tons of scene modes and Creative Filters; i-Contrast feature brightens shadows, reduces highlight clipping; Zoom Framing Assist helps you track moving subjects when you're really zoomed in; Redeye not a problem; Customizable button, menu, and spots on mode dial; Cool face, smile, and wink self-timers; Hot shoe for external flash; Records Full HD (1080/24p) video with stereo sound, use of optical zoom and image stabilizer -- manual mic level controls, plus a wind filter
The camera is loaded with myriads of features. Using the camera on Sport mode allows you to shoot in burst mode. Colors are vivid and incredibly crisp and shooting in low light seems not to be a problem even without a flash. The video quality is awesome. The only thing I don't like about the camera is the placement of the Zoom framing button; it gets in your way when taking a picture. I can say that every penny spent on this camera was worth it.
