I cannot set the macro function. With the camera set on P pressing the macro button shows the manual focus and normal but not the flower symbol. I have used the macro function in the past so I'm not sure what has changed. Any ideas

New camera time! Opinions? After wandering all over the map, I'm down to fussing over Canon SX50 HS vs. Panasonic DMC-ZS40. Intended uses: Scenery, vacations, friends at parties, grandchildren, in other words not really specialized, amateur. Me: I could figure out manual settings, but don't want to spend the time when taking pictures. "P" seems to mostly work. Shifting a mode to "Macro" is OK. ("IA", picking a scene mode, never has worked well for me.) Here's what I've gathered so far,...

Hi all , So for now I'v got the Canon SX50 HS , which is fine , but not amazing . I already used the CHDK firmware it was annoying me that i cannot use manual focus to get the DOF over video to get this results http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6789G4gGg0 It also require from me to write some scripts to make it easy for my but still , it is something that you do very easy with a DSLR camera. As well i went to an aquarium Museum and it was very hard to make some pic without flash with a low...

Hi, I have bought my sx50 one week ago and I'm very impressed. It's my first semi-professional camera and I think It´s the perfect camera for me. But there is one thing I would like to do: I think that the better way to take pictures for me, would be shooting with the EVF with all the info and then review the picture without the info with the LCD display. The camera doesn't let me do it. Could I do it with the CHDK?   do the SLR cameras work in this way?  Am I the only one who wish shoot...

Hi photo lovers! I've currently got an Canon EOS 500D which works well for me. I have a Canon 10-22mm lens for wide angle shooting and a Tamron 18-270mm for good zooming. But after nearly 5 years, I'm feeling like many DSLR enthusiast, the weight and hassle of 2-3 lenses plus a large-ish camera makes it a difficult travel companion. I'm looking at 3 options all with very different pros and cons. While I place image quality highest, I really need the reach too with less bulk. My Tamron...

Hello everybody! I'm in the process of upgrading to a new digital camera. After researching for a few weeks on which camera to buy (considered Canon SX50 HS) I zeroed in on FZ200 for its video recording capabilities. I am an avid Trainspotter. I love capturing videos of high speed trains which is why I am tempted towards FZ200 for its fast lens (would have loved 30-35x zoom but I am okay with 24x). Now, I am caught up in a bit of a dilemma since it's been 2 years since the FZ200 was...

Hi, I've been using a P&S and would like to upgrade for taking pictures of wildlife and landscapes. The longest focal length I've used is something like a 320mm equivalent on an old PowerShot. I feel like in some instances, an even longer focal length than that might be more suitable. I also don't that that a fast lens is essential since a deeper DOF is desirable for landscape and often for wildlife. I've been looking at the specs on cameras like the Canon SX50 HS and the Nikon Coolpix P510...

What is the best sub-$410 bridge camera to buy? I am a complete and total beginner and this will be my very first camera. I don't want to get into DSLRs just yet because of all the investments that go along with it, and I am afraid I will make the wrong ones (and I'm on a pretty low budget). I am looking for a camera with a good zoom, aperture, and shutterspeed. I was considering the sx50 hs for a while, but its low-light performance can't be very good because of its maximum aperture of...

Hi thereJust got back from an overseas holiday where I was using Geotag Photos Pro as I was intending to geotag my photos when I got home.While away I moved the pics from my SD card to a USB stick. I can now see this was a mistake as all the pics have the 'Date Created' as the date I moved them, not when I shot them, so the geotagging app can't sync them because it's time/date based. I tried using the Apps time adjustment mode as in the following example:I started Geotag Photos Pro at 2.52pm...
