In A Mode, you can see the effect of aperture adjustment immediately after you half-press it. In M or S, nope. PAS mode, you can see the effect of EV compensation right away without half-pressing and yes in EVF.

You can definitely turn on/off that magnification box, just dig the menu. The MF of HS50 is by far the best out there in all superzoom.

Actually, it can shoot in burst mode even when in MF. Maybe you meant Intelligent Zoom?

Maybe you need to set the focus mode to macro? If the subject is too close or almost filling up the screen, you need to set the mode to macro even though you are not shooting small subject.

I'll have to recheck that, Joms... I could swear that no matter what mode I was in, I could not see the effects on the EVF of any changes, whether it be the aperture, the shutter speed, or the EV, until I actually took the shot.

I did turn off that focus assist zoom feature.  Manual Focus and Focus peaking will be much better now.

Again... something I'll have to check.  I didn't think I was able to shoot burst mode while I was in Manual.  No... definitely not Intelligent Zoom.  Haven't even looked into that feature yet.

As far as maybe needing to set the focus mode to macro?  Um... that was a very big alligator and there is no way I was going close enough to require having the camera in macro mode.
