    Why SX240 is in this league?

    Best is FZ150.

    sx240 is not in this circle but included due to its feature and image quality.

    FZ150 is good in RAW but SX40 HS by CHDK it may achieve.

    What about SX40 HS? How its performance? Or any other model more perfect in this range? May be below this price range.

    Yes, there are some features you will get by using CHDK. FZ150 ratings are overwhelmingly good than SX40. If you prefer to take SX40, its fine. It won't disappoint you.

    Note: Even using CHDK you can't improve the ability of AF.

    Hi dears,
    Finally i narrowed with two choices after a series of analysis along with all your inputs given in this forum..
    NikonP510 and HX200v has enormous features but it greatly lacks in its image quality and performance in relative aspect of SX40 HS and FZ150.

    My little choices are:
    1. SX40 HS
    2. FZ150

    My doubts are :
    FZ150 produce a great image quality in RAW shooting but it lacks in shutter speed(1/2000) and wide(24mm to 600mm).SX40HS have greater shutter speed(1/3200) and better wide.

    which is good by considering overall features of the both?
    and whether the FZ150's lesser shutter speed impact in Bird photography?
    and I need suggestion on Canon SX40 HS output image quality after CHDK in RAW shooting compared to FZ150..
    Is CHDK safe to SX40HS..?
    Any problem occuring. in chdk?

    Friends and Cam-lovers...I invite all your valuable suggestions... Thanking you..

    Wider??? I don't think 1mm gives you a massive difference. But sure give a huge difference at tele. Other than focus speed and RAW shooting, everything is fine with SX40. If you like SX40, go ahead and buy.

    Most of the people around will say FZ150. SX40 and HX100 will follow just closely behind. But with CHDK you can do a lot and for your information it's still in beta stage. It's not stable. For more information about CHDK it's better to ask in CHDK forum.

    Definitely lesser shutter speed of FZ150 won't be a problem for bird photography unless or until the bird is in tooooo bright light. Like flying in the line of sun etc...

    1/2000 or 1/3200 isn't needed for birds. It will make the bird appear like shadow. You will only need it for capturing HDR images. I haven't passed 1/200 while capturing birds

    nac under 20mm each mm is nearly 10 degree of difference but in this case its not much ...

    I have seen guys comparing the slowest shutter speed but never seen on the fastest side...dont worry 1/2000 is fast enough
