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...

Hello everybody! I'm in the process of upgrading to a new digital camera. After researching for a few weeks on which camera to buy (considered Canon SX50 HS) I zeroed in on FZ200 for its video recording capabilities. I am an avid Trainspotter. I love capturing videos of high speed trains which is why I am tempted towards FZ200 for its fast lens (would have loved 30-35x zoom but I am okay with 24x). Now, I am caught up in a bit of a dilemma since it's been 2 years since the FZ200 was...

Hi, I've been using a P&S and would like to upgrade for taking pictures of wildlife and landscapes. The longest focal length I've used is something like a 320mm equivalent on an old PowerShot. I feel like in some instances, an even longer focal length than that might be more suitable. I also don't that that a fast lens is essential since a deeper DOF is desirable for landscape and often for wildlife. I've been looking at the specs on cameras like the Canon SX50 HS and the Nikon Coolpix P510...

What is the best sub-$410 bridge camera to buy? I am a complete and total beginner and this will be my very first camera. I don't want to get into DSLRs just yet because of all the investments that go along with it, and I am afraid I will make the wrong ones (and I'm on a pretty low budget). I am looking for a camera with a good zoom, aperture, and shutterspeed. I was considering the sx50 hs for a while, but its low-light performance can't be very good because of its maximum aperture of...

Hi thereJust got back from an overseas holiday where I was using Geotag Photos Pro as I was intending to geotag my photos when I got home.While away I moved the pics from my SD card to a USB stick. I can now see this was a mistake as all the pics have the 'Date Created' as the date I moved them, not when I shot them, so the geotagging app can't sync them because it's time/date based. I tried using the Apps time adjustment mode as in the following example:I started Geotag Photos Pro at 2.52pm...

About a year ago my Powershot SX20 IS developed a white stuck pixel in high ISO and low light stills and videos. This month, it has developed an intermittent black screen "lens error" message requiring a restart. From my past experience with a previous Powershot megazoom, the "lens error" will eventually cause the camera to become inoperative and will require a repair. Is it more economic to replace or repair the Camera? In the past I've had a positive experience with two repairs performed...

I was recently looking at buying a new pair of high quality binoculars to take with me on vacations and for occasional use wildlife spotting in the backyard. While browsing online I happened to come across 'superzoom' cameras such as the Panasonic Lumix FZ70(/72), Sony DSC-HX300B and Canon Powershot SX50-HS, and having now watched a few of the have-to-be-seen-to-be-believed superzoom demonstration videos on Youtube (such as this one ), I'm thinking I should scrap the binocular idea, leave my...

I'm having some trouble using the control dial to make adjustments to shutter speed, etc.  My finger seems to go the self timer.  Once I have that cleared, my subjects (mostly birds) are long gone.  Is there any way to disable any or all of those buttons?

Hello, I'm relatively new to photography owning a few compact cameras and would like some advice on which bridge camera to buy. I have been mainly looking at the Canon sx50 hs, Fujifilm X-S1 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ200. I predominantly want this camera to take action skiing/mountain photos and video, while working winter seasons (and surfing photos). I was wondering if anyone had knowledge on how any of these perform in snowy conditions or if you had any advice for other cameras?...
