For the Sheer Fun of It.
The PowerShot S40: a sophisticated collaboration of modern design and state-of-the-art digital technology that delivers astonishing resolution and brilliance.

Outstanding Images Rich in Detail
4.0 Megapixel CCD

The S40 boasts a powerful 1/1.8-inch 4.0 megapixel CCD. So what does this mean in practical terms? The camera creates postcard-size images so densely detailed, the pixilation is invisible to the human eye. Now you can enjoy all the exciting options digital technology gives you, and get rich, radiant, film-like image quality

Close in on the Fun
3x Optical Zoom and up to 11x Zoom

From close-up snaps to panoramic vistas, the S40's speedy, responsive zoom is right there to make your vision happen. A built-in digital tele-converter takes the 3x optical zoom lens (equivalent to 35 to 105mm in a 35mm camera) smoothly all the way up to 11x. Legendary Canon optics ensure a clear, brilliant shot every time.

More Ways to Keep Memories Alive
Movie Mode with Sound and Voice Memo for up to 60 seconds

Fun capabilities like Movie Mode and Voice Memo make the PowerShot S40 portable entertainment. Shoot vibrant, sound-and-motion digital movies — 30 seconds long at the highest resolution or 2 minutes at the lower resolution. And now when you view your still images in replay mode, you can record up to one minute of commentary that will attach to the image — making photographic memories even more memorable.
