Pros Stylish, sleek design, fairly easy-to-use interface, great for parties, very compact and a great conversation piece.
Cons Expensive, pictures come out somewhat grainy, and overall; a decent camera that doesn't get you bang for your buck.
Summary Well, the Canon SD40 is great-looking camera through and through. It's got a pretty decent color selection, and a really great looking, sleek design, but it lacks in the picture-taking department.
I'm not a photographer, at all, I use this camera primarily to take pictures of friends, family, or when I'm on vacation, but from personal experience; this camera is made for the look. For the hefty 350 dollar price tag, you really don't get much, in my opinion. I get horrible lag times between shots, which can get really, really annoying. The pictures come out with a really strange grainy texture, and it's honestly a minor improvement to the SD30, which I also own.
I'm a fan of the series; but I was honestly expecting more with this camera. I mean, this is great to show off to your friends, or to anyone really, as it really is a gorgeous camera. But, unfortuanetly, I can say that I regret the purchase, simply because for half of the price, you can pick a really decent camera that's just as sleek, and probably takes much better photos. If you're looking for something that's going to do more than steal a few glances from friends and family, I suggest looking elsewhere.
Pros the picture quality was awsome, and the buttons were not crammed like other cameras
Cons The snapshot button was very slipery, and the area around the lense always got smudged by fingerprints
Summary This is a great deal! You have to becareful because it gets
