  • Replied in Acronis
    I've used the 2015 Acronis TI for several months and although initially it looked to be a disaster it settled out once getting familiar with all the changes.  I back up manually twice monthly with ...
  • Replied in Another SX60
    I believe the first one was at 247mm and that can be a long shot.  Hard to get a sharp hand held shot zoomed to max optical but here there is a fair bit of mottling.
  • Yes indeed. You must get that SX60 now that you have been exposed. I do believe that if one can afford this camera AND travel, by all means go for it. :-D The SX40 still can do backup duty and ...
  • Agreed, the SX60 is a better camera than the SX40 in most every way.  How much better in IQ is debatable and given the price is it worth $500.   At full out zoom there is a slight mottling if ...
  • Good question.  Actually I tried to cancel the post but too late.  There really should be a longer time period for having "second thoughts" on posts.
  • Non proprietary flashes can be a bit hit and miss.  I have used a Canon 270EX flash on my 2 previous and current cameras.  It's small but is quite powerful and has a tilt head for bounce.  it is a ...
  • Neither.  They both do a fairly good job.  The 60 certainly has better ergonomic features but as for IQ it seems to be a draw. I dug out my prox 2x3' test board and took 3 shots with each at full ...
  • Good plan.  The SX50 is indeed a bargain, if you can find one.  As for the new Nikon I just could not believe they outflanked the SX60 but there you go.  I suppose Canon will now push through with ...
  • Thanks for the response Ed.  Its not that I would have preferred the Nikon but it does look like a very interesting SZ, at least spec wise.  I only picked up on it via another web site and somehow ...
  • Created discussions Nikon P900?????
    Why no news item on the Nikon P900.  Nothing.  Looks like a Canon SX60 killer but it also looks to be huge.  Just wondering as I just purchased the SX60.  :-|
  • Well, I didn't state one could actually touch it. ;-)
  • Have a look at the Sony HS90V.
  • Seems that the OP has a broad range of cameras but may really be short of a long zoom type.  The new Sony HS90V looks interesting in that it has a 30x zoom, an EVF, tilt up LCD and is very ...
  • Well yes, I did state that it was indeed bigger and heavier but it also offers a far better hand grip.  My SX40 fit into a small carry bag with a lens hood attached.  The SX60 required a bigger ...
  • Ad blockers can be a far bigger pain than they are worth.  I have to disable AdMuncher regularly to get some sites to function normally.  :-x
  • Sarah, did you get to try your friends SX60HS? If so I would be interested in your take on this upgrade from the SX40. Personally the wfi or RAW doesn't interest me but the ergonomics and improved ...
  • Sarah, don't take my comment on the tele zoom too seriously.  I do fee that it is a bit too long for hand holding but that varies a good deal.  Most other aspects of the SX60HS seem to be very ...
  • Replied in Dale
    If only Sony or better still, Canon would offer a small, fixed lens 30x zoom with a good fixed EVF and swivel LCD it would be a killer. The HS90V could have a smaller LCD to allow for a fixed EVF ...
  • Ed, I am sure you are quite right.  Getting used to a new camera does take some time and effort.  I just do not see a need for such a zoom range, all considered.  It creates unnecessary bulk and ...
  • Absolutely.  Those 2 important ones I can do without, including RAW capability.  The one thing I would like to see is a hot shoe.  Of course if Sony added a swivel to that LCD they would have an ...
