What is the shutter life for the Canon SX50HS

Compact cameras are very different from DSLRs that publish an estimated shutter life expectancy. Most compacts have electronic shutters and don't have moving mirrors so they have fewer moving parts. The AF and zoom mechanisms are mechanical and can break at any time, however it's more difficult to estimate or predict shutter actuations before something else fails.
