worst camera ever owned

15 January 2015
  • Excerpt: For the price it is the worst camera I have ever had. I had the canon M which is a nice little camera great camera.I have had a Paniasoic FZ200. First off the Flash is manual even in auto. you have to pull it up your self. The filter on this camera is around 49mm you need to buy a step up ring to 67mm and put a 67mm uv filter on. No NR low noise control.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor Image Stabilization

Good Canon camera, but skip Focus

Richard C.Walters, Amazon
26 July 2014
  • Summary: The Canon Powershot SX50 is a great camera, but I suggest buying it straight from Amazon, without the $14 Focus package. Skip the $14 of extra stuff from Focus. I kept the little tripod and threw away the other Focus junk.

very dissatisfied

  • Conclusion: Purchased camera for a bird watching trip to Costa Rica. One week into trip camera stopped working. Others on trip with same camera had similar problems. This was an expensive trip in which I had no camera for most of it. Fortunately the retailer I purchased it from gave me a full refund.
  • Cons: camera does not function well

  • Excerpt: I use a camera in my profession, I previous had a Cannon PS5SX which was a good camera too good clear pictures with great color balance easy to use software, and hence my next camara was a �cannon� also SX50HS, my first disappointment was the software it used the same easy to use software as previous however its now covered up with a fancy front and make many more steps to do what was once easy.

GREAT CAMERA UNTIL IT GOES BAD AND YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE

B. Tollz "photozazen", Amazon
19 July 2013
  • Summary: I loved this little camera. Great features and photos. In first couple weeks had a problem--the screen regularly froze and camera turned off. Fortunately Amazon as always was great and I returned for another. After 6 months the zoom started wobbling. Sent it to Canon for repair. Got an email saying they didn't work on that part, I'd get a new or refurbished. I called to say i did not want a refurbished camera given that i'd already had problems with two of this model.

  • Conclusion: When getting a good grip on the camera to take serious shots, fast action etc., the fleshy bottom part of one's thumb rests smack dab on one of the controls and turns them on inadvertently. This is seriously not good. Did a Canon engineer ever hold the mockup design of this camera and take shots to figure this out? This was my first day using it and it is being returned to the store tomorrow due to this issue alone.
  • Cons: poor back panel design
