Canon Powershot SX50: Rumors and must-haves
Jul 31, 2012

Because I'll probably buy the Canon SX50 and wanted to know what will change, I searched for information. The information is widely spread around the internet so here I'll try to place it all in one thread. After that is a list with things that should be (improved) in the SX50.

SX50 rumors:
-zoom: 1060mm x44 (instead of 840mm x35)
-14.1 MP (instead of 12.1 MP)

-920.000 pixel LCD (approx. 720x1280) (instead of 230.000 pixels, approx. 360x640)
-3" LCD (instead of 2,7")
-processor DIGIC V advanced (instead of DIGIC 5)
-Super SteadyShot system Hybrid IS (instead of Intelligent IS)
-Max. aperture: F2.8 - F5.0 (instead of F2.7 - F5.8)

SX50 must-haves (things that the SX40 not or less good has):
Higher EVF resolution

(More) manual settings (in video mode)
No ISO100 lock when the shutter speed is 1+ second

Unknown, but probably in september
