I just couldn't help picking up a refurbished SX50 for $180 from Canon.  Now my one and only question is... Is there a sticky or thread that summarizes all the setting tweaks to get the most from the camera?

I'm looking to buy a new camera. My budget is $300 max. (used ok).  I will mostly use it for birding, travel, outdoor scenery and baseball games.  I am mostly concerned about zoom and image quality.  I will not be doing much, if any photo editing...just want to point and shoot.  I have a small Kodak that I use indoors for family events, etc... I do have it narrowed down to a handful, but will take other suggestions if you have them.  What would be the best one for my use?   Thank you for the...

hi all  I just purchased a Canon SX50. I'm having a really hard time negotiating the manual to find the answer to what I hope is a simple question: When you use P(program) mode, is it possible to review the photo after you take it? I know you can do so in Auto but I specifically purchased this camera so that I could shot in RAW.  with the camera in P, I tried both RAW, and RAW+jpeg to see if I could get a review of the shot after I took it and either it's not possible or I don't know the...

Hi, A small help from an SX50 owner. I need the outside diameter of the lens barrel (should be under 67mm I think), the outside diameter of the lens body (moves in zoom) and the length of the lens body that is outside the barrel, once it is on the telephoto end. I want to compare with SX60, trying to fit custom adapters... Thanks for listening Stelios

With all the major advances in still camera video capabilities being talked about of late, I am starting to wonder which, if any, of my cameras would be best at capturing video? Because I really never use that feature. Here are my current cameras: Pentax K-3 Sony NEX-7 Olympus Stylus 1 Canon SX50 HS Panasonic LF-1 I've heard the NEX-7 is good at video, but that its sensor can't take the heat. But other than that, I don't know. One time I videotaped a short dance performance with the SX50...

When using my Canon SX50 HS for various motorsport events, I have tried using the High Speed Burst function available under the SCN setting.  I have been happy with the result except that the shots are in 4:3 format rather than the 16:9 format I have selected elsewhere. When I try to change the format under the SCN setting, it is 'greyed-out' when High Speed Burst is selected.  Is there any way to change to wide-screen? Thanks

I do a fair amount of travelling so I take photos of exteriors (i.e., cities, buildings, etc) and interiors (inside churches, museums, etc.). I'm looking for a good P&S camera in the $300 to $400 price range.  I've narrowed my list down to: COMPACT CAMERAS: CANON POWERSHOT S120CANON POWERSHOT S95CANON POWERSHOT SX260 HSCANON POWERSHOT SX700 HSPANASONIC LUMIX DMC-LX7PANASONIC LUMIX DMC-ZS20PANASONIC LUMIX DMC-ZS40PANASONIC LUMIX DMC-ZS50S SLR-LIKE (BRIDGE) CAMERAS: CANON POWERSHOT SX50...
