Hello, I have read several threads on this topic, but none have been able to convince me why I should buy either one. I'm a big fan of the Canon SX50 HS, but mine has unfortunately been stolen during a burglary and it appears to be no longer for sale. I'm looking for a super-zoom to mainly accompany me on hiking/backpacking trips and other travel for nature photography. I will of course also use it during family gatherings, etc. I'm now hesitating between these two as the SX60 HS should be an...
Hi I recently purchased a Lumix GX85 as a step-up from my old Canon SX50 HS. I've just treated myself to the Olympus M.Zuiko 12-100 f4 lens which will give me a lovely range and am looking forward to trying that all out. The question I have relates to the 200mm+ range which I get on my SX50 (200-1200 f6.5) vs the lumix 100-300 II lens (200-600 f5.6). Assuming I'm using this range fairly infrequently for occasional wildlife shots, and that I won't be doing any cropping, and that I don't have a...
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!!
