  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX50 HS boasts the most ambitious lens of any camera in its class, and in favorable conditions it's hard to beat in terms of framing versatility. Image quality compares well to its competitors, and we like the camera's ergonomics (although a zoom control on the lens would be very...

Digitaltrends
21 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Available for $400 or less, the SX50 HS is a fine mega-zoom — especially good for travelers. Image quality is tops in class, it’s a lot lighter to tote around than a DSLR, and the focal range can’t be beat.
  • Pros: Industry-leading 24-1200mm 50x optical zoom, Rich, accurate colors, Excellent image stabilization system
  • Cons: Noise issues at higher ISOs, Video frame rate behind the times, EVF should be larger

Tech2
10 February 2013
  • Summary: At Rs 29,995, the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS is priced significantly higher than many other super-zoom digital cameras and it’s also more expensive than entry-level DSLR cameras. Agreed that the 50x lens is awesome and so is the overall performance, but the feature set should have been better—the...
