I'm going to show you some photos taken with an SX40, but I know can be produced easily on the SX50. Normally, I wouldn't show these, but they illustrate what can be done on the spare of the moment with these cameras. These are a bird in fight crossing in front of our boat. The boat is moving 30-40 mph. The camera is panned in burst mode and 5 shots in 2 seconds in AUTO.

Bird in Flight 1

Bird in Flight 2

Bird in Flight 3

Bird in Flight 4

Bird in Flight 5

That's pretty good action.

You are making my decision easier Ron!  Thanks!!!
