The Canon Powershot A40 is getting old in digital camera terms, but this only turns it into a bargain as prices fall. At only £184 (ex VAT) this camera is excellent value for money. The camera comes in a box containing the camera, a driver CD, "Arcsoft Camera Suite 1.1" CD, wrist strap, 4 AA alkaline batteries, a USB cable, AV cable for plugging the camera into a TV, 8MB CompactFlash card and various pieces of paper. Supplied literature is a 'Software Starter Guide', manual, 'System Map', warranty, a leaflet for Canon's internet printing service ("Fotango") and a leaflet for Canon's "Direct Printing Device". ...

In terms of technical detail there is very little to be added to Regeants comprehensive review, but I thought I would add some practical aspects. I acquired my A40 as a replacement for an older Fuji. The downside of the aquisition is that there was no case supplied, so it is a definite that a case must be acquired. Try to make it as small as possible, as the camera is quite tubby. I installed big batteries immediately, and using the 1800mAH NiMH batteries I had, I have done a week's holiday, with about 200 shots. The other clue is that I did not even contemplate using the 8MB Compact Flash card supplied, and immediately added a 128MB card, which, as I said, ... Read the complete review

I've had my Canon PowerShot A40 for 2 years. I've captured more than 5,400 shots in this time. This is an EXCELLENT camera. It is quite durable. The lens is quite good. The LCD display is very clear (full color), and is highly resistant to scratches. We now use a 256mb Flash Card (only $40 at Sam's Club), and we can get everything we need with this camera to publish ads at 300dpi. Our magazine is "digest sized", so this camera's "Large" (high res.) image is more than adequate for most photos of persons and objects to be integrated into multi-layered ads (in PhotoShop). The A40's high res. mode is 1600x1200, which equates to a 300dpi image of 4" . Read the complete review

My man picked this camera for me. A Christmas gift - my first digital camera. It's probably a great camera for the photo buff who likes lots of techi features. A 'Man' Camera? Confusing jargon in the book, menus, alarms!, sub menues, weird icons, sub-sub, menus and neither I nor the staff at the store could make it talk to my computer. (Windows XP was blamed by several parties) Down loading drivers, re-reading the book - No. Never got it to do what I wanted. Shop agreed to take it back at beginning of March. Now have a much simpler (Ladies Camera?) - Olympus C-120 That talks to my PC and does nothing but take pictures ... Read the complete review
