Awesome Camera: SX 50
9 months ago

I shoot Pentax & Nikon crop-sensor, Nikon full-frame, & Sony NEX. For an enthusiast like me, these systems are expensive, heavy, & complex in the number of accessories needed to run them. After inspired researching in this forum, I grabbed a Canon SX 50 & tried it out, if for no other reason than the 1200mm it offers. 1200mm for a DSLR requires re-mortgaging the home.

I've tried some Moon shots and some birding & am very impressed with the little camera. I cannot believe how well Canon has tuned this little sensor. Images @ 1200mm are amazing IMO. Actually, images @ all settings are impressive, even with the sub-par Raw converter supplied by Canon. A big thank you to the Canon team!

For all my post-processing needs I’m using Adobe Elements, but my copy is to old to process these Canon Raws--so I here to ask for any advice on what software to purchase. Since I need to upgrade, I want best value (subjective, I know) as well as something which will process all my Raws.

Thanks to anyone who can contribute--I welcome all opinions.

Cheers! JT
