sierranvin: I can just imagine this thing at 600mm, my arms extended, outdoors, the screen vague from glare, my image wobbling with the animal or bird I imagined I might shoot, going in and out, in and out of view...in and out, in and out huh huh Where'd it GO!!!
Maybe Canon thinks folks will use it on a tripod through their urban apartment windows as a kind of poor man's peeping Tom tool?
I know a lot of people, myself included, who aren't professional photographers, just passionate to shoot and who doesn't care about the VF. I heard all the time that more than 25X zoom is useless without tripod, than 30X, than... Wel,l I shot 60X handheld and LCD and got nice results. So much for the photo theoreticians, which, strangely, don't have a single example in their galleries. Mario is right.
Now THAT's something quite outstanding! Congratulations to catch so well the moment, but I think the lady wasn't too happy when the bird tried to fly with it's "building material" to the nest :) :)
Augustin Man: Wow! Interesting to say the least, but how big and heavy would be that "grote" zoom? Besides, after the SX60 cold shower, I feel like treasuring my dear SX50, but also like moving away to other brands :(
To wait more than two years for a super zoom worse than SX50.

Excellent image, congratulations! But Zugspitze, with 2962m, is not even close to the highest mountains of Europe: in Austria only there are tens of peaks over 3000m! It's however the highest mountain of Germany.
Sven44: Part 3
This phenomenon is (more or less) compensated for by selecting a different ISO level. But that, in turn, means a DIFFERENT F-VALUE to give the same shutter speed.
So (ad nauseam)
An image taken with a 2x crop sensor at f/2 with a 50mm lens at 1/60s with an indicated ISO of 200
will produce an almost indistinguishable FINAL IMAGE to
One taken with a FF sensor at f/4 with 100mm at 1/60s AND AN INDICATED ISO OF 800.
Same depth of field, same scene brightness, very similar noise level (the smaller sensor of one compensated for by the higher ISO of the other).
OF COURSE THE FIRST IMAGE WILL BE FOUR TIMES BRIGHTER ON THE IMAGE PLANE. WE GET THAT, BUT IT’S IRRELEVANT! It *needs* to be four times brighter (intensity) because for a given indicated ISO reading, four times as much gain is going to be applied to the signals produced by pixels that are four times smaller!
So f/2 on our smaller sensor is IN EVERY SENSE THAT MATTERS *EXACTLY EQUIVALENT* to f/4 on a larger sensor.
I'm just a hobbyist, but I like the article quite a lot; actually it will not be for much use to me, as I'm only a "zoom addict" of P&S cameras, but I want to understand what I'm doing. Thus, I'll put your above comparison on the bottom of my camera, just in case of forgetting. Thank you very much!
1/16000 sec?! Sure isn't one zero too much?
This is my "Broken Branch" orchid, edited by Ed using PSCS6 to canvas resizing and cloning: great job!
tutek: Canon should be ashamed. Check out the new Nikon P7800. Exactly what customers want in this class ...
Ok, but if it's as SLOW as 7700 people won't buy it :(
I'm not at all impressed by the plane shot. Check out here planes flying at some 11km altitude with 900km/h:
ChristianG: I have to laugh (I shoot a DSLR where it doesn't happen) at a 60x zoom. Personally I think that even shooting at "only" 10x, unassisted by something like a tripod, is sailing very close to the wind.
Did you see some BIF at 50X taken with a HANDHELD SX50?
Here you are:
As the rest of his articles, this one is very informative and superbly illustrated by examples. I like that it also remarks the many difficulties such an action involves.In short, a top professional work.
I like Fuji: they launch simultaneously 42X ,44X and 50X super zooms, so that the Fuji fans can choose the EXACT super zoom they wanted!
As just a hobbyist, my opinion is that many people that can afford to buy this technical jewel don't know how to use it, and I'm saying this because I wasn't impressed at all by the samples of the forum, but the samples of the Korean review recommended below were actually jaw-dropping!
Nice kitty! The cats usually play the "H&S" game as a part of their exceptional hunting instinct!
Stunning image and composition! Congratulations!
Two problems: the first, VERY IMPORTANT, is that the images lost their former clarity and it's only a zoom in step; the second, of secondary importance, is that in the "Recent forum activity" appear the messages but not the forum name to which they belong.
Thank you for your attention.
Valterj: Overall a good camera!
But there are some things that could be better:
Video is not the best - Sony DSC-HX100V is much better!
GPS takes around 1 minute to be active!
42X optical zoom for seascapes is like digital zoom!!!
Night shots with high ISO are too noisy.
No accessories, like macro lens adapters...
You can fit perfectly to it Raynox DCR-150 and 250, which come with an adaptor...
qwertyasdf: Hi Theano Nikitas and Barnaby Britton,
"The P510 is a very useful portrait camera towards the long end of its zoom"You guys really hv my curiosity going here, can you please show me a portrait using 1000mm, it's something i'll never accomplish in my lifetime.
Here is a sample at 180mm (1000mm equivqlent):
How do you like it?
