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?
I am finding that the flash on my SX50 is firing even when the flash is in the closed position. Is it not the case that, when the flash is closed then the flash function is inhibited? Does this show a fault with the camera or is there a setting that I have inadvertently changed? I regularly use a custom setting where the flash would never go off when the flash is closed, but now it is firing and I cannot fathom what settings I may have altered for the flash to now fire. It looks like the...

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 22.214.171.124. However, Canon seems to have changed their policy in that DPP is no longer downward compatible - from what I've observed. DPP 126.96.36.199 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 188.8.131.52 has no problem opening/editing the SX50 RAW files, but of course the old interface and develop tools are...
