To try to make a name for myself as a photographer using the internet and my friends as contacts and get recognized for my talents which I've fostered now for over 30 years.

  • Well, if Canon is delaying the SX60 just because of 4k video, I guess they are responding to the latest market "craze" and hype about this basically unnecessary feature. But I wonder if the delay ...
  • In order to VIEW 4k video at 4k resolution, you need a 4k-capable device! As for the usefulness of HD vs. SD video, HD TVs are affordable so people can convert easit. 4k TVs are still too pricey ...
  • I feel that 4k video and, in fact, 4k TVs are marketing gimmicks to fool people into wasting their hard-earned money. In order to VIEW 4k video, you realise that you need a 4k TV, right? So, no I ...
  • Thanks for the info Steve! I hope it will be in time for your birthday. Mine is actually coming up very soon, hihi! :) John
  • Yes, I see your point Augustin. But I already have some familiarity with the SX40HS which my parents have. Also, I am hoping that it will be available by mid-June so that I'll have some chance to ...
  • I think there are probably a lot of people besides me who are just disgusted with how Canon takes its time in even announcing a new super-zoom!  Travel season for the summer is almost here and ...
  • I think 50x zoom is already great and, like it has been mentioned already, it is doubtful any stabilizer system will make video stable enough. A tripod would be the norm for anything beyond about ...
  • I really should use my flash much more indoors then! :)))))))) (I usually stay away from built-in flash since I don't have a good external flash). Regarding price increases, I wonder if it can also ...
  • Yes, I agree Ric, that the HX100V does take very good shots and great videos. But after looking carefully at dpreview and other websites' samples for other cameras, I realized that the fuzziness I ...
  • Wait for the SX60 please! It will be worth the much smoother video and better processor (Digic 6 instead of 5). Canon's new SX700 has the long-awaited 60 frames per second progressive (60p) video ...
  • Ah yes, of course tom1234567! I had forgotten that Canon Powershot super-zooms (SX series) DO RAW format. Another BS from Sony! ASIDE-I am concerned about Sony's market share in pretty much ...
  • Yes, I agree Greynard. Sony is basically marketing, not innovating! A 14MP sensor is probably the most any of these cameras should have... may be 16.  The image quality is hard to judge if I don't ...
  • I whole-heartedly agree with you Oswald74! That image preview is incredibly annoying and a waste of time! I have the slowest of the HX series, the HX100V and I miss shots because of the image ...
  • Ah, yes, I forget that the camera EXIF posts the actual real lens focal length not the 35mm equivalent, so I got mixed up. Then at maximum zoom, these photos are incredibly sharp! :)
  • Hmmm... Interesting. I know that theoretically, the HX 200 and 300 have better image quality than the 100 and faster response times. What did you not like about them?  Also, in the summer (June) ...
  • Oh heck no! Don't give up the SX50, especially if the SX60 is nothing more than more zoom and a few bells and whistles, and same sensor size. My parents have the SX40 and it too has great picture ...
  • Wow! I'm astounded at the sharpness of these photos. I have a 1920x1080, 24 inch Samsung monitor and they look superb, even at 100% !!! I am curious McBrig, did you try such far away close-ups with ...
  • This is a wonderful shot Ian! Aren't seagulls cute though? You really got a nice composition there too. You could also perhaps, have tried lowering the camera just a touch, to have the seagull a ...
  • Canon has incredible low-light performance and is definitely the best choice. My parents got the SX40HS last year and I have used it, and it is truly impressive.  The SX50 is just better. The ...
