This a great all in one carry around camera. I also own the older SX1 and SX40HS, and this camera improves on both. The SX1 has a 35mm equivalent 24-560mm lens, has great image quality, great video, and shoots RAW files, but the downfall in my view was AA batteries which had a very short useful life (relative to a Lithium Ion battery) and always seemed to die at the wrong moment. There was no battery charge indicator other than an "idiot" light that would flash as the battery died. Then a few versions later came the SX40HS. Great camera, battery charge indicator, Lithium Ion battery, 35mm equivalent 24-840mm lens, great image quality, great features, great video... but no RAW. Now we have this little gem the SX50HS which in my view finally completes the picture for the perfect carry around camera with an even longer lens range, battery charge indicator, Lithium Ion battery with remarkable life, great image quality, great video, great features and shoots RAW files! This camera boasts remarkable image quality from a very small chip. Does it compare to the image quality I get from my 1DS Mark III or 5D Mark III? No. Did I expect it to? No. But for the all the amazing features packed into this camera the bottom line for me is that there are many great images that HAVE been captured because of the portability and range of this camera which might have been missed otherwise, as I don't regularly tote around the 20 - 30 pounds of gear that would be needed to cover this lens range on my full frame DSLRs.

I have a Canon PowerShot S3IS that far exceeds the quality I see in the PowerShot SX50 HS. I find the auto focus leaves a lot to be desired. The diopter adjustment for the viewfinder is almost impossible to turn and the focus through the eyepiece is not clear at all. And some of the built in features, like the slight pause between digital zoom and optical zoom is quite irritating. I do admit that image quality is very good, and I like the 1080p resolution in my videos. I don't see much difference between the 1080p on this camera vs the 720p on my Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR. I admit there are some features on this camera that I like, such as the slow motion video and the High Speed Burst HQ, so at this time I intend continuing experiment with this camera. But if I had known what I know now I would not have purchased this camera. On the brighter side, the only cameras I have and will continue to own are Canon!

    Comments about Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Digital Camera:

    The main features I look for in a camera are a viewfinder, a long zoom, a 3:2 setting and good low-light results. I have used this camera for a year, and I am blown away by the images it produces. At least a dozen friends have purchased this camera after seeing my prints--especially the first shot of the Super Moon. Three friends have ordered this model in the last three weeks because of my enthusiasm. I deducted a star because of the positioning of the timer and record buttons. They are directly under the thumb when the camera is gripped properly, and it is very inconvenient to have to disengage the timer when trying to take a regular shot. I'm considering buying another one to have as a back-up since none of the new models in this email have an eye-piece. I have been a camera entusiast for 65 years, and this is my first Canon.

        Comments about Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Digital Camera:

        This is my favorite camera I've ever owned. I took over 2000 pictures on a lengthy Western USA trip and had very few bad ones. A lot of pictures were made though the car windows. I had a lot of fun taking all kinds of shots with the huge zoom. Pictures of the moon look like they came from NASA. With the neck strap and the LCD turned to face upwards the camera functions a lot like a twin lens reflex with a waist level viewfinder. It's a great way to get steady shots. My ONLY complaint is that I have a hard time holding the camera without mistakenly pushing a button. My fix has been to try to keep my thumb in the LCD cavity (I rarely use the EVF).

          The major improvement in the SX50 are: photo quality, Improved Macro capability, RAW function was added, Zoom range improved. The SX50 replaces the SX40 after 172,000 images/actuation. This camera supplements my EOS 6D.

            Comments about Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Digital Camera:

            I am very well satisfied with my SX50HS, overall quality is excellent. If you realize the few shortcomings you can take pro pics. Battery life is excellent, low light possibilities are great. My biggest complaint is the slow focusing for in flight shots of birds. The camera is fantastic for macro shots using the long focal length (1200mm 35mm equiv>) which focuses at 4.3ft which allows some wonderful macro opportunities at a discreet distance from subject. Having that great magnification is really important although I have experienced very difficult focusing over water at the full extension (1200) even using manual focus. If you are like me and don't wish to carry around huge lenses, the camera is a godsend>

            Comments about Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Digital Camera:

            This is a great travel camera. Very useful zoom range, but focusing can be a bit slow at maximum zoom range. The camera can also save files in RAW format for later processing. Continuous shooting mode is somewhat useful, but there is still a delay in what you see while it is snapping off frames, so it's not that useful for fast moving sports where the subject might be moving across the frame. Battery seems to last a very long time and I did not have any issues with the battery lasting me all day while shooting.
