Hi, I have among others an SX-50 used almost exclusively for birding. Recently, I have been contemplating buying the G3X. I've heard the focus is a little slow. Does anyone have insight to its ability vs. the SX-50? If it is the same or better, I think I will get the G3X. If anyone birds with it, feel free to comment in general about its performance. Thanks very much!
I started wildlife photography (birds being my prime focus) with the canon sx50 hs. Recently I took the plunge into DSLRs and bought a Canon EOS 80d, body only. Now I have been researching extensively for which lens I should I buy first. My focus is on bird photography, which warrants a superzoom lens. I figured that it would be better to buy a zoom lens over a prime lens so that I could still have some options with photographing closer subjects or wanting to simply photograph other things....

I have had a Canon SX50 HS for a couple of years for bird photography and it has been great. I have used it exclusively in the P mode but just decided to try Av, Tv and M to avoid blown out white highlights on white birds. When I switch to any of these 3 modes the circular dial (CD), which should let me set the aperture or shutter, does absolutely nothing. When I try to use the up/down feature of the CD to adjust aperture or shutter, it switches to exposure compensation (up arrow) of set ISO...
I've got a Canon Power Shot SX50 HS, a SanDisk Extreme Plus 64GB, 95MB/S U3 microSDXC UHS-I Card, and a full battery, and I can't shot videos over about 20 minutes. It just cuts off, no matter what screen resolution I use. The memory card is empty, the battery is full...I've got to record a long video for a project next week...I have to figure this out ASAP, Please help me!!
Hi:I recently bought a Canon SX50 HS and want to buy extras for it like a 2X telephoto lens, a .45 wide angle lens etc. The auctions mostly say that 58mm diameter is what I need, although I see where some auctions say 67mm is the size I need. How can a camera be two differnt size?? All I could guess at is that the adpter ring I have to buy can be bought in 58mm or 67mm. Am I missing something here?? Thanks, Chuck
I use Canon's PowerShot SX50 HS for all of my photography needs. I was photographing an ordination when my camera became very hot, so hot that my hand got slightly burned. When I removed the battery, it was hot. (Too bad it wasn't winter, I could warm my hands on it.) What should I do? Purchase new batteries? One of my friends suggested that I use this battery until it dies and then charge it up again. (See below for detailed explanation) I can't afford to purchase a higher end camera at this...
