Hi all, Back to 2006, the first zoom camera I bought was Panasonic FZ20, 12x, 5MP. It was great at that time, I got sharp images especially at 1600 x 1200 and less sharp at higher resolutions.  Recently, I bought FZ200 and I was disappointed with IQ, I only got sharp images at lower resolutions which is not good in today's standards! the best thing in this camera is slow-motion video which is reach 120 frame per second in HD quality (I think it is lower, but scaled up to HD dimensions) . I...

HELP!I have missed too many good shots of my kids the last few years! (See that blur? That one's mine). High school graduation and a lot of "lasts" coming next year. Need a good camera that will take pictures indoors and out (graduation in the stadium, choir, band & orchestra in the auditorium). Will need a good zoom (super zoom?) My daughter is a pianist and I can't use a camera that makes a shutter sound during concerts, so a DSLR is out. (Some programs have actually stated "no 'snap'...

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...
