Canon SX50

Imaging Resource
31 May 2013
  • Conclusion: With a 50x optical zoom that delivers an amazing 24-1200mm-equivalent range, the Canon SX50 HS brings distant subjects up close and personal -- and it does so with intelligence and grace. Hand-held shots at full zoom and in good light are relatively easy to take, thanks to the SX50's improved image stabilization and Zoom Framing Assist function. And the end results are surprisingly sharp and pleasing for the digital camera's class and sensor size.
  • Pros: Whopping 50x optical zoom range from a generous 24mm equivalent wide angle to powerful 1200mm equivalent telephoto, Improved Intelligent IS allows for sharp hand-held shots, even at full zoom, Ergonomic design and build with a good grip and excellent control placement, Zoom Framing Assist helps you track distant, moving subjects and keep them framed, Great image quality for its class, Good lens performance with strong detail across the zoom range and good distortion c...

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Review

What Digital Camera
18 October 2012
  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX50 HS is a camera that combines an amazingly long zoom lens and a set of enthusiast and novice features, all packed into a surprisingly small bridge-style body and keeping it all relatively easy to use too. Honestly, make no mistake, that's no mean feat.

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS

Pocket Lint
22 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot SX50 HS lands one big punch with its 24-1200mm lens. But it's not all 100 per cent rosy: the limited aperture at the longest focal length will force use of higher ISO settings and the lens is trying to do so very much that some softness and colour fringe issues can't be ignored. But considered in context and, for a superzoom, the SX50 HS's low ISO images and raw capture puts it right up there among the best.
  • Pros: Raw shooting, decent optical image stabilisation system, vari-angle LCD, among the best superzoom image quality at lower ISO settings, close-up macro mode
  • Cons: Chromatic aberrations, limited maximum aperture at longer focal lengths (and less bright than predecessor), auto-area focus can decide to focus on some strange areas, small viewfinder, shorter battery life than predecessor, stabilisation struggles at longest focal lengths

Expert Review

Tecnozoom
29 December 2012
  • Conclusion: La Canon PowerShot SX50 HS è un’ottima fotocamera bridge la cui caratteristica più evidente è il superzoom 50x, che la posiziona ai primi posti tra le sue simili, ma che ne aumenta anche di molto le dimensioni. Spiccano inoltre il supporto del formato RAW, il display orientabile, i comandi manuali, lo stabilizzatore ottico e la porta HDMI. Perfetta per tutti coloro che vogliono una fotocamera di qualità senza spendere una cifra esorbitante.
  • Pros: Sensore CMOS; Zoom; LCD orientabile; Raffica ad alta velocità ; Stabilizzatore ottico di immagine; Elevata sensibilità ISO; Supporto al formato RAW; Modalità manuale; Assistenza per l’inquadratura; Porta HDMI; Modalità automatica
  • Cons: Qualità mirino

PowerShot SX50 HS

Das Digitalkamera-Magazin
9 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Die Canon PowerShot SX50 HS (Produktfotos) ist als Spitzenmodell im Bereich der zoomstarken Bridgekameras positioniert und trifft dort auf Konkurrenten wie beispielsweise die Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 (Datenblatt) . Als Nachfolger der Canon PowerShot SX40 IS (Testbericht) wurde vor allem der Brennweitenbereich auf bis zu 1.200mm (nach KB) erweitert.
  • Pros: 1/2,3 Zoll rückseitig belichteter CMOS Sensor mit 12,0 Megapixel, Klapp- und schwenkbares Display, Optisches Ultraweitwinkel-Zoom-Objektiv mit 50fach-Zoom, 24mm bis 1.200mm kleinbildäquivalente Brennweite, Schnelle Fokussierung, geringe Auslöseverzögerung (Details siehe Geschwindigkeits-Seite), Gute Detailwiedergabe und feines Rauschen auch bei höheren Empfindlichkeiten, Geringe Verzeichnung in der Weitwinkelstellung, Neben JPEG auch RAW-Aufzeichnung möglich (auch par...
  • Cons: Maximal 1 Sekunde Belichtungszeit im Halbautomatik- und Automatikmodus, Displayauflösung in dieser Klasse mit 461.000 Subpixel höchstens als "akzeptabel" zu bewerten, Nicht klassenübliche Sucherauflösung mit "nur" 202.000 Bildpunkten, Nur 24 Vollbilder pro Sekunde im Video-Modus bei Full-HD-Auflösung (1080p24), Video-Auslöser ungünstig positioniert
