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 just got a Canon SX50 to replace my Canon SX240. I wanted a big zoom to capture indoor sports shots using the burst mode. Burst mode is important because if gives more flexibility to capture the a good action shot. However, I am little disappointed because a lot of the pictures are blurred. I checked the specs on the pictures and noticed some are being shot at 1/15 shutter speed. I am sure it is because the camera is automatically adjusting the F stop at 5.6 and the shutter speed at 1/15...

based on calculations by another user on another thread: The SX50 has a 1200mm equivalent lens with a focal length of 215mm and therefore 1200/215 it means it has a crop factor of 5.58 1200/215 = 5.58 SX60 has a 1365mm equivalent lens with a focal length of 247mm and 1365/247 means that it has a crop factor of 5.52. 1365/247 = 5.52 It looks like the sensor sizes aren't the same. What is the exact size of SX60 and SX50 sensors in mm? --Teach me how to improve. Sign the petition to Malta...
