The Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Digital Camera is the world's first compact digital camera with a 50x optical zoom lens. The impressive focal length range extends all the way from a wide-angle 24mm to a super-telephoto 1200mm (35mm equivalent). The camera has a 12.1MP CMOS image sensor and a DIGIC 5 Image Processor, enabling you to capture high-resolution JPEG and RAW still images, as well as full HD 1080p video with stereo sound. The 2.8" Vari-Angle LCD monitor features a resolution of 461,000 pixels and an electronic viewfinder.

Sensitivity up to ISO 6400 helps the camera produce clear, detailed images even in low-light situations. Optical image stabilization compensates for camera shake in these conditions for crisp, blur-free image quality. High Speed AF provides fast 0.19-sec focusing, improving upon the SX40 HS's 0.38 sec and a reduction in shooting lag time from 0.45 sec (on the SX40 HS) to 0.25 sec to ensure that you don't miss a shot. Zoom Framing Assist Seek and Lock functions make it easy to track your subjects and keep them centered in the frame until you capture the image.

High-Speed Burst HQ enables continuous capture at 13fps for up to 10 frames. Smart AUTO mode automatically chooses the best camera settings for the situation, selecting from 58 predefined scenarios. Face ID adjusts focus and exposure priority based upon up to 12 pre-registered faces. A variety of shooting modes are at your disposal as well, including Manual, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Program, plus Movie Digest for combining a whole day's worth of clips into a video, Stitch Assist for panoramic shots and many more. High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode combines 3 different exposures into one evenly-lit image.

With the camera's built-in hot shoe, you can use optional Canon Speedlite flashes, such as the 270EX II, 320EX and 600EX-RT. Using the included USB cable and the PictBridge interface, one can enjoy the ability to print directly from the camera to a compatible printer without using a computer.

SX50HS is a great investment!

I purchased this camera to replace the SX40HS, which I was very happy with. The main reasons I upgraded are the 50X optical zoom and the ability of recording RAW images.

I purchased this camera to replace the SX40HS, which I was very happy with. The main reasons I upgraded are the 50X optical zoom and the ability of recording RAW images. So far, I am very happy with the camera. While some of the features are a little different than the SX40, I feel that this camera is still easy to use. Going through the feature menus is easy, especially with the scrolling description at the bottom of the screen as you go through the different menu options. While a printed manual is not included, I feel that the best way to familiarize oneself with the camera is to actually use it. I see very few people actually carrying a manual around anyway, but there is a quick start guide that is included which is helpful. As with any digital camera, you need a computer to which you can upload photos to, so viewing the electronic manual is easy. As for the 50X zoom, it is almost, and I say this gently, too much because on warm days, you can easily see the heat waves as they distort the air when zooming in on distant objects. However, I am not complaining because on the contrary, you can get some amazing pictures of the moon! Contrary to what some people have mentioned, the battery life on this camera is excellent! I have been able to easily take several hundred pictures with the Canon NB-10L battery. In my humble opinion, I would not use anything other than Canon batteries. As for shutter lag, it is almost non-existent. One thing I would have liked to see is an increase in megapixels, but still, the picture quality of this camera is excellent. The HD video is phenomenal, but the only thing I have experienced is that the video stops after about 20 minutes or so. I am thinking it might be a heating issue in the camera, but I have been able to start the video again almost immediately without any issues. I am not sure if anyone else has experienced this or not, and I hope Canon can look into why this is happening or maybe it is a design feature. I am not sure, but I plan to follow up with this. I use a 32GB card, which is plenty of memory for both video and thousands of pictures (in jpeg format). Overall, I feel that Canon did a good job with the SX50HS camera in regards to the additional features and benefits over the SX40HS, which I say again, is also a great camera. I would definitely recommend this camera to family and friends.

average camera

Terrific zoom, very bright LCD but very short battery life.would of been nice if it had used standard rechargeable batteries.NO manual! your expected to print your own 200 plus page manual with COPY imprinted on every page.I would of kept the camera it if it had a manual with it.What about people that dont own a pc ?You should at least be able to purchase one.

Great Camera!

This is a fantastic camera. I take a ton of pictures and have used many different cameras, SLR and point and shoot. This camera rivals more expensive cameras. The ease of an all in one, the 50x zoom and the advanced controls make this a must have camera.

Great Camera with many Features

By

I was replacing another SLR Camera that I had for a long time and had paid 3x as much for when I bought it. I read a lot of reviews about the SX50 hs camera and compared to other cameras it had very high reviews. Watched some videos on its performance and features before buying this camera. Right out of the box it really surprised me with the quality of photographs it takes and transferring images is a breeze directly from the Memory card. loved the heavy feel of the camera to not like a cheap light weight camera. great photos from very close to long zoom. I Highly recommend this camera for any occasion I think you will be very happy with it. I am 70 years old bought a lot of things in my life

Love this camera !!

By

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!

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

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

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.

Great lens. sharp pictures, quiet smooth shutter. Needs a slightly larger body for easier handling and a remote wireless shutter release.

Questions about this item:

JC H  How do set this camera to shoot in raw mode?
EILEEN N  I don't use RAW mode, JC. But there is a manual that comes with this camera. Did you not receive a copy? Sorry I can't be of more help on this. Warmly, Eileen
JC H  The manual (PDF format) that comes with the camera shows a screen where you can enable RAW. What it does not say is that you only see the screen with this option after you have taken the shot and it is on the view panel. I use RAW because I can do so much more with the image in Photoshop than I can with a JPEG.

Russ r  what is the warranty on used cameras?
PENNY P  I don't know what it would be from Canon....however, just check with where you are purchasing it from (Adorama) and, I'm sure they will have answers to all of that for you.
Russ r  Penny -- who do you represent? I thought I was getting an answer from Adorama. To make my question clear does the used camera sold by Adorama have the original warranty from Canon? Are the used cameras display items or returns or what? Thanks
