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?...

Hello, I have a canon sx50 hs model and I love it. But now when I take any picture when I zoom in AFTER TAKING IT to see it it's kinda bad and the pixels  show. It wasn't like this when I first got it. And in the settings the picture quality is set to L which is the best option. I am using Auto mode.A friend suggested it has something to do with the ISO but I don't know how's that possible when I am using Auto. Any suggestions?

Has anyone noticed that the LCDs on the Powershots can have strange colors? We have an S100 and an SX 50hs, both are recent acquisitions from the Canon refurb shop. On both of them dark purple becomes royal blue on the LCD. The images are correct. My T4i LCD renders the colors much closer to actual. --Bikerguy

I am testing a Canon SX50 HS. I want to confirm whether the Canon SX50 can be quickly zoomed in to 200 X without stop or it will stop at 100 X?

Hey all, My employer has just gifted me with a Canon Powershot SX50 HS for my 20th anniversary working with them! I'm kindof a novice when it comes to photography, although it's something that I've always wanted to get into. Sadly, I've pretty much been confined to the camera of my iPhone for the last few years. Anyhow - I've just unpacked the SX50 and I'd appreciate any pointers or advice regarding its usage. I'm reading through the Camera and Photography basics articles on this site, but...

Hi all. New to the forum - seems like a great place to get info. We have a very old digital camera, and it is time to upgrade. We are new to the all great features on the later cameras, and mostly want something to take pictures of grandkids, and for vacations. As long as I am doing it, though, I want to get this camera for a special occasion. I am traveling to Florida later this year to watch the launch of a spacecraft that I have been working on for several years. The observation area is...
