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.

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...

Hi, maybe this subject is beaten to death but I can't find a clear answer.I want to buy a good long zoom camera for the times I don't want to carry my dSLR and (heavy) lenses.After trying the Canon SX50 and the Panasonic FX200 a year ago I found the SX50 quite good and I hope the SX60 is even better.I hope that (former) owners of the SX50 and SX60 can give me some advice.Happy shooting, Chris

Hi everyone, I am new to this site and I need help to find out is there anything wrong on my camera. I brought my SX50 in 2013, but I only used it a few times in Auto mode in a 2013. It worked fine in Auto mode. Since I did not know anything besides Auto mode, so I decided to learn it later. But the later is 2016 now. I picked up my camera again this week and tried to learn the details of the operations in MASP modes by following the instructions in the user guide. I found that the following...

I have a Canon Powershop SX50 HS. Recently I purchased a remote control which worked great. Now each time I plug it in, it automatically takes a picture and won't let me use the remote to take another picture. If I change to a different mode, it automatically takes another picture. What has happened?
