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...
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...
I'm found about some issues about SX60 HSSX50HS better IQ than SX60HSSometimes wrong focus when high level zoomLosing focus at some colorsSometimes bad measure exposure (also related to washing color?)More hand shaking than SX50 HS when high level zoomI expactation resolve some issues after firmware updateHow was SX50 HS?SX50 HS had similar issues before firmware update?
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...
