I've read 7 months of this forum, learning about the P900. Thanks for the many thoughtful responses! For those of you who have used to use an SX50, are you glad you switched? I'm particularly interested if you take pics of small things at a distance, for example: little birds like warblers, hummingbirds, chickadees in trees at distances like say 25 feet or more. I do this a lot, mostly at 50x and even 100x (digital), usually using P mode for the smaller focus box. Problems I have is it has...
Presently I down load photos using canon software Image browser which files pics by date photo was taken. Is it possible to set up a special folder for a group of Cruise photo taken so the pic go directly into that folder. In Image Browser one can set up groups and transfer like photos into those groups but that takes so much time when you have several photos to file together. Gene

I've never been a big fan of DPP but I like the update version 184.108.40.206. However, Canon seems to have changed their policy in that DPP is no longer downward compatible - from what I've observed. DPP 220.127.116.11 will read newer RAW files like the G7X files, but it can't work with older RAW files from my SX50 HS. SX50 RAW files appear as tiny thumbnails only (See screenshot below). DPP 18.104.22.168 has no problem opening/editing the SX50 RAW files, but of course the old interface and develop tools are...
Hi everyone, I'm a noob at cameras and just bought this camera since from the reviews and pics they all have great shots of the moon. Since this is why I wanted to get this type of camera because of the details in the shots. I was wondering if anyone has used this type of camera to try and take pictures of planets? I asked this since I saw that the Canon SX50 HS is able to take really amazing shots of Jupiter, Saturn, and maybe Venus. Is it possible with the Panasonic FZ70 camera? Thank you...
TL;DR : If I want to do some distance shooting (air planes approaching at airport, a full moon, etc) will I ultimately be better off (in regard to final Image Quality) with a small sensor super zoom more capable of reaching these objects (50x, 1200mm equiv), or an APS-C mirrorless with the longest reaching lens being 55-210mm, and having to rely on things like Sony's "clear image 2x zoom" to at least bring me up to 630mm equivalent, or hope that a 100% crop of a much smaller subject from the...
