I've never been a big fan of DPP but I like the update version 4.3.1.1. However, Canon seems to have changed their policy in that DPP is no longer downward compatible - from what I've observed. DPP 4.3.1.1 will read newer RAW files like the G7X files, but it can't work with older RAW files from my SX50 HS. SX50 RAW files appear as tiny thumbnails only (See screenshot below). DPP 3.14.48.1 has no problem opening/editing the SX50 RAW files, but of course the old interface and develop tools are...

Hi everyone, I'm a noob at cameras and just bought this camera since from the reviews and pics they all have great shots of the moon. Since this is why I wanted to get this type of camera because of the details in the shots. I was wondering if anyone has used this type of camera to try and take pictures of planets? I asked this since I saw that the Canon SX50 HS is able to take really amazing shots of Jupiter, Saturn, and maybe Venus. Is it possible with the Panasonic FZ70 camera? Thank you...

TL;DR : If I want to do some distance shooting (air planes approaching at airport, a full moon, etc) will I ultimately be better off (in regard to final Image Quality) with a small sensor super zoom more capable of reaching these objects (50x, 1200mm equiv), or an APS-C mirrorless with the longest reaching lens being 55-210mm, and having to rely on things like Sony's "clear image 2x zoom" to at least bring me up to 630mm equivalent, or hope that a 100% crop of a much smaller subject from the...

I have a Sony Power Shot Sx50 HS.  I was taking pictures the other day and my screen went black.  I can still see through the view finder and can take pictures and review them when I connect my camera to my television.  Any suggestions?

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...
