default Canon Powershot SX40 HS Tutorial: Step One   Camera Layout

For the complete Canon PowerShot Elph 500 HS review, go to www.infosyncworld.com Touchscreen technology is old news in the digital camera industry, thanks to Sony, but Canon didn’t release their first touchscreen digital camera until last year. The SD3500 IS put Canon on the map, particularly geared for point-and-shooters who wanted a great Auto camera that was easy to use. The Canon PowerShot Elph 500 HS is the SD3500′s sequel, and it’s packed with many of the same upgrades found on its siblings, the PowerShot Elph 300 HS and SX230 HS. Canon’s prey within the point-and-shoot forest has been low light, and the PowerShot Elph 500 spends most of its mod money on making sure shots remain exposed and focused when the lights go down. The Canon PowerShot Elph 500 HS also receives a few other choice upgrades like 1080p and new Image Effects, so let’s break them all down in our full review.

    Unfortunately I don’t own the SX50 but I believe most of these videos are still relevant to the SX50 :)

    I am not a fan of the viewfinder on the SX40 to be honest. I also find it small. It’s ok but I have worked with better, I think it’s really down to individual opinion. Some people praise it fairly well but as I said, I’m not overly enthusiastic about it.

    If everything looks in focus when you look through the eyepiece, then you don’t need to worry about it ;)

    It’s either down to the video editing software you are using and having your settings set to something that isn’t HD, or it’s because you aren’t changing the little settings icon below your video to the higher quality playback.

    Hello there, have you heard of “Photo SFXart Tricks” (do a Google search for it)? On their website you will find a great free video featuring how to create outstanding pictures. It made it possible for Matt to take photos that leave you with a jaw-dropping-effect while you look at them. Hopefully it will work for you also.

    I see the colour difference you mean but I don’t think you can really achieve that difference with presets I’m afraid. That’s the sort of thing you would probably need to do through an editing program with the contrast and saturation unfortunately :/

    Hi there fatdragon. I had a question for you that you might or might not be able to answer. I notice that in ‘Miniature effect’ the colors come out more vivid in the photos, although not as vivid as the ‘vivid effect’. I haven’t been able to figure out how to get these settings into a C1 or 2 mode.. Any idea how I can do that? I don’t want the blurring, just the color settings. Maybe post a vid? Thanks!

    a question: I have a Canon Elph 300 and a memory card Transcend 32 GB Class 10, but I can only record 9:59 minutes maximum, but I can record other 9:59 minutes, but the problem would not interfere with the recording for example, 30 minutes of video without interrupting.

  37. violian5 says:

    I can’t find this answer anywhere. But when you press on the touchscreen, does it flex and feel plasticky? Or is it hard like an iPhone’s glass touchscreen? My Android’s plastic capacitive touchscreen flexes when I press on it…and I don’t really like that cheap feel. Thanks again for your review.

    @baxy09 300 series: cheaper, simpler lens, less features, more compact. 500: pricier, better lens (sharper pics, f2.0 for low brighter light) touch screen, thicker in size, customizations such as aperture and shutter priority.
