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?...

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
