While the SX40 HS doesn't offer the a high-dynamic-range mode like other cameras in its class, Canon does include its i-Contrast feature, which helps rescue shadow detail like the face of the player in this photo. On the left is the original and on the right is the same photo adjusted with i-Contrast with the camera in playback. Take a closer look and you'll see the difference a little better.
Canon also includes exposure bracketing that will take three shots in a row at different exposures. However, it doesn't do it all that fast so you and you're subject have to be stationary.
