Best Camera for Optical zoom with IS

Hi, How are you doing? I want to buy a used camera in the price range of canon powershot sx620 so far I checked atleast 20 digital and semi pro cams on youtube and internet from sx210, sx610, Sony hs50, Nikon P510 etc. and among all these I found Nikon p510 and Sony hs50 with better zommed in results.

I want your opinion on which camera produces best video quality (similar to today's mobile standards) in that budget range? Thanks in advance.

If you mean a Sony HX50, don't buy it, because it's not built solid, I had 3 HX50 and they had all same problem: the settings gets crazy...and very difficult to set. Go for a Sony HX60 or HX80 or HX90, they are much better, long zoom 30x and make good pict and videos.

Thanks for replying, Sorry yes I was referring to hx. My only concern is video as I already have 1300d with few lenses. Unfortunately currently I only have sx50 on olx to buy can someone recommend other options from canon or nikon or any other Sony series cam which is available on olx. Currently DSC-HX1 and Nikon P510 - 30 and few Canon SX models are there for sale.

Okay it's now down to Canon sx620, Sony HX50, Nikon P510, Nikon B500, Nikon P530.

Which is best among these in terms of zoomed in video and photography?

I would say Sony. But try not choose HX50 because I had 3 of it and all them the button broke and was hard to choose the settings...
