Hello all, In Canon SX50 successor (Canon SX60) a must be in my opinion: )Panasonic Lumix FZ200's EVF has a much higher 1.3 million dot resolution- EVF resolution doubled vs SX50 (at least 400,000pixels resolution or better i.e.:  - Recording Full HD with 30fps(finally as 23.9fps now is too stuttery and years behind competition ), 720p with 60fps. (and super speed mode 640x420@120fps, 320x200@300fps would be nice as well but not essential) - Make it faster: at least 2fps with AF(also increase to 4fps with AF/AE lock) It would be really good to have(if not in SX60 then definitively as must be in it's successor Canon SX70 model): - Faster AF with more AF points. - Manual focus ring (like in Fujifilem HS50EXR again nice DSLR feel) - Manual zoom (apart from automatic as an option i.e.: Fujifilem HS50EXR nice DSLR feel) - SD card UHS I standard support.(or maybe even UHS II)
- USB 3.0 support. - Screen 3" with 1,040,000 resolution. - ISO 50-12800 also better in low light (maybe time to use bigger sensor? like 1/8" or 1/1.7") - Optical zoom x60  20mm-1200mm or 22mm-1320mm or 24mm-1440mm Not neccesary but would be nice: - More efficient/more voluminous battery or maybe better 4xAA(as it used to be in SX1 and earlier SX20) - Battery charging through USB 3.0. - Record RAW video in stereo. Canon could actually develop (along SX60) a more "posh" hybrid model SX2 (similar to SX1 few years ago) more expensive but with more options and better materials used.  - price - it can be the same or even more expensive than SX50(but no more than 50%) - - weight, it can be heavier than SX50(but no more than 30%) - dimensions, it can be larger than SX50(but no more than 30%) - resolution, no need to rise above 12.1megapixels (4000x3000) yet but don't downgrade either. I do not care so much about: - Hot shue. - RAW/RAW+JPEG/HDR mode. - amazing articulated vari-angle screen Please do keep at all costs: - Bring back: filters fit 58mm possibility (like in: SX40, SX1, SI5 and earlier models - not documented by Canon but all 58mm filters could be mounted without buying any adaptors) - Flash range 6m or more. - Better weather sealing. - Better panorama/360 degree stitch mode. - Remote control (like in SX1) - Printed user guide. - 2x SD card slots (mode to record movie on one and save photos on other, mirror mode etc.) - GPS chip. - SD card slots accessible while on tripod. All the best
