Love this camera !!

By Rosebud

from Boston, Ma.

Comments about Canon PowerShot Point & Shoot Digital Camera - Black:

Photography is a passionate hobby of mine. I have owned Canon cameras for at least 35 years..since my first Canon AE1..I've dealt with carrying around different lenses and filters. This time I wanted a good "all in one " camera. I found it. This camera has an incredible zoom ( a "see the craters on the moon" zoom) and great special effects to play with. The pictures are of excellent quality especially for what is considered a point and shoot camera. I love that it can be either fully automatic or fully manual. It's a nice size and comfortable to hold. I love my SX50 HS.

Great purchase and value!

By Beginning Birder

from Weatherford, TX

Comments about Canon PowerShot Point & Shoot Digital Camera - Black:

I have been looking for an easy to use camera with a great zoom for documenting my bird sightings. After much researching I decided on the Canon Sx50 HS. It has done exactly what I needed it to do. Pictures are great and it is easy to review photos and to down load photos.

First bridge camera

By Mic

from Ballantine, MT

Comments about Canon PowerShot Point & Shoot Digital Camera - Black:

This little camera has all the functions I could have imagined, plus a bunch of other functions I didn't even know existed. It takes fantastic pictures, up close and far away. I'm just getting started with photography, and this camera has definitely put me on the right road to getting good at it. Thanks Canon.

Good focus HORRIBLE Mic, Horrible battery life.

By MikeMikeMike

from Undisclosed

Comments about Canon PowerShot Point & Shoot Digital Camera - Black:

I shoot youtube videos of wildlife and the outdoors. The zoom on the camera is great but does have a slight delay. The auto focus feature works sometimes but can be very troubling. The audio on this camera is HORRIBLE. I installed a foam wind screen over the two mic holes to reduce wind noise. If you are wanting an all around camera, buy the t3i or t5i. If you are wanting a camera with not a ton of lenses to change with high zoom, this is a decent camera. Battery will last about 2 hours.

Best in my hands in 70 years

By Budofthestar

from San Antonio, Texas

Comments about Canon PowerShot Point & Shoot Digital Camera - Black:

I have been taking pictures professionally for 69 years in the USA and Europe. I was forced to give up the120 size film in 1975. I had of course used 35mm also and got my first canon in Switzerland in 1957 (a VT Deluxe) I took it back to work in Germany and fell in love with it. No Canon has come out with this marvelous camera SX50HS which does everything a working pro would need. 24-1200 mm. Zoom lens (Sharp as a tack) . Shoots both RAW and Jpg.. Built in filters,and,a viewfinder and viewing Screen, ISO speeds up to 6400. All in a package no bigger then a old rangefinder camera. Now that may be the only problem I can see with the camera. It is so small and has so many buttons to push that it is very easy to push them by accident, but what else can you do with a camera with so many features? When combined with the right software I don't see anything beating it.

Great little Camera

By jazzsky

from New Hampshire

Comments about Canon PowerShot Point & Shoot Digital Camera - Black:

Got this camera to replace my SX10is. This camera works great and takes excellent pictures. The zoom extends the reach of my Canon 3ti with a 300mm zoom on the end. This camera meets and exceeds my needs as a backup camera to have on hand, for those really distant shots.
