SX50 - I'm over the moon with this little super-zoom!
Dec 10, 2013

Bought this amazing little super-zoom for my wife recently but it's unbelievable capabilities are increasingly addictive! Though I'm still in the process of getting used to it, I pointed it skywards this evening to take a first moonshot...

Cheers - Herman

And so you should be(over the moon) Herman. My advice is get one for yourself so you won't be fighting with your wife over who is going to use the camera.

Well done.

To keep my brain active I'm looking forward to my next trip. So much to see yet and not enough time.

Wow...amazing detail!! Shoot...now I have to run out into the cold and try this myself!

Fantastic shot. Much better than I have been able to capture with my 60D and 200mm 2.8 with a 2x extender attached.

I haven't attempted a shot of the moon yet and when I do I hope it comes out as well as this. Excellent photo!

Thank you all for your kind comments. I'll try to maintain the benchmark...

At least, that's if my wife continues to let me use her camera!
