Canon PowerShot SX50 HS

CNET
13 February 2013
  • Summary: The SX50 HS's output is sharp and accurate, and it delivers an extraordinary zoom, which would cost thousands to replicate on a dSLR. It represents a significant step up from its predecessor, the SX40, but with rival superzooms with wider apertures throughout their range have proven that it's not always the length of your lens, but what you do with it that counts.
  • Cons: Wind noise on movies; Minor colour fringing on some sharp contrasts.

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Review: Goldilocks Dream Camera

Digital Camera Review
13 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Canon introduced the new SX50 HS, the successor to the very popular Canon PowerShot SX40 HS , at the semi-annual Photokina imaging products trade show in Cologne, Germany this past fall. The fifth generation Canon PowerShot SX50 HS is an entry-level DSLR-sized point and shoot digital camera that is essentially an evolutionary update; however, at least one of the new features seems almost revolutionary.

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Review

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 camera lacks GPS, eye-sensor for the EVF and other useful modes such as automatic panorama stitching.

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS: Camera or telescope?

CNET
8 February 2013
  • Summary: If you simply must have the longest zoom in the room, the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS satisfies.
  • Cons: Its lens and high-ISO picture quality make it less desirable for shooting indoors or in low light, especially without a tripod. A couple of things about the design of the controls might make shooting frustrating for some users. Outside of its long lens, its features and performance are slightly behind competing models.

Expert Review

DP Review
6 January 2013
  • 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 welcome) but where the SX50 HS falls down is highlight clipping in JPEGs, a relatively slow lens and sub-par operational speed, which compares rather poorly to its peers.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality for a super-zoom, Enormous 50X, 24 - 1200mm equivalent lens, Optical image stabilization, with Intelligent IS feature that selects the right IS mode for you, Sharp, rotating 2.8" LCD display with 461,000 pixels offers good outdoor and low light visibility, Full manual controls, now with RAW support, Smart Auto mode picks a scene mode for you, can even tell when babies are smiling or sleeping (well, it tries), Plenty of scene modes and Creative ...
  • Cons: Likes to clip highlights (hint: use DR correction), Noise becomes pretty intense at ISO 800 and beyond, Redeye a problem (though removal tool in playback mode helps), Electronic viewfinder isn't great, Slow max framerate of ~1fps with AF (but increasing to 2fps with AF/AE lock and 12.8fps in High Speed Burst HQ mode), Lens is on the slow side (in terms of maximum aperture); tripod almost a necessity when shooting at 50X zoom, ISO fixed at 80 at shutter speeds at or be...
