  • You do have this quite right.  I have had the SX60, now the SX50.  I really liked the 60 for a number of small details over the 50 but at twice the price I reluctantly let the 60 go.  Looking ...
  • The obvious solution is to leave the card in the camera.  With cheap high cap cards there is little reason to remove it.  When photos are transferred to a computer via a USB cable be sure to erase ...
  • Jon_T,  The shot of the foreground F-20 was interesting as I had recently read about it.  It replaced the F-5, almost, but didn't quite make it into production.  Give a look at Wikipedia search ...
  • Sorry Jim for hijacking your thread.  Should have started my own.  :-|
  • Thanks Henning.  I agree the SX10, 40, 50 and 60 were all good SZs.  Each 'progression' offered extra zoom range but not much else.  I did like the 60's EVF.  Very small improvements otherwise.  ...
  • Here's a few SX50 passersby, anchored and working vessel pics.
  • Yes, I shoot a lot of ships for pleasure and for a ship-spotters site.  The SX50 is ideal with that 'just right' tele end.  Most are bulk and container carriers and anchor out in front of our ...
  • Replied in Budget?
    For travel these little 2-in-1 types are ideal.  My wife has a similar Dell 13 7000  but this Asus Zenbook looks to be superior and the B&H price also.
  • Your experiences with W10 Mail is very similar to mine.  I now tend to go directly to my ISP web mail server.  They just updated this service and it looks better as well as performs much faster ...
  • Yes, saw that one on a recent TV show.   Also heard of an electron gun that paralyzes the drone's systems.  These things are a huge problem particularly near airports.  They do have some positive ...
  • We now face the iot and there will be hell on the highway with self driving cars and smart everything at home. Hackers will rejoice. Robots will and have taken over all jobs including designing ...
  • Absolutely, no threads on any of these SZ's.  However I have on very rare occasion semi screwed on a polarizer filter and if your very careful it may stay there for a short shot.  I have since ...
  • The SX60 is on sale on Canon Canada's site.  Not a big deal but as they don't give much (no) press to the SX series it just may be that the SX70 is coming soon.  The way Canon announces new ...
  • Right.  There is always exceptions. :-) I shouldn't overstate the negative aspects of social media but Facebook gets in ones face.  Our town has a new website that relies on Facebook to show ...
  • All social media is to be avoided.  Facebook, Twitter and ever more "me-too" drivel gets into the ever diminished minds of the masses.  If you want some privacy these apps are killers.  As for ...
  • I am getting to 'almost' like Edge but it does seem to be a mas market browser edging toward social media.  So, it has an equal place on my list of browsers with Firefox.  IE11 up next and ...
  • No one for Edge ???   No one uses Win 10 ??? :-)
  • A nice proof positive set of images for the SX50 especially considering that some were at full tele zoom.  It seems that 50x is about all these small sensor SZs can make use of with current IS ...
  • As we get into what's considered to be old age we tend to like what we have and know.  The SX50 is a compact superstar and little reason to look further presently.  The SX70 may well be worth an ...
  • Don't believe everything you read on the SX60. It's a good camera and has some nice upgrades. However, the super long zoom range degraded the lens IQ just a touch. I'm 84 so I do feel the vision ...
