I’ve seen quite a few people here saying the sx50 is far superior to the sx70 with regards to image quality, but the majority of the examples from the sx50 that I can find look pretty bad to me... blurry, chromatic aberration, grainy. Where are the good examples? I already have a DSLR that can take care of most of my photographical needs, but I’m looking to buy a superzoom camera for birding. And if the sx50 is as good as people claim, that would definitely save me some money... but I’m just...

On my brand new SX70, whenever power is on, when the camera is held close to ear, the sound of something running/turning can easily be discerned.  I have several times gone over all the menus & turned off everything that appears relevant, to no avail.  The sound is much quieter than lens movement.  Any suggestions?

I have found that when it comes to video under high zoom (maybe above 30x) autofocus is at best too slow and at worse non-functional. For stills I cannot think of a single case where the focus was not fast enough even at full zoom to get the shot I was looking for. I use C1 C2 presets almost exclusively for stills. For example I was trying to get a video of two Eagles buzzing ducks from about 250 yards. In this case they kept at it for 10 minutes so I got some reasonable video. Typically...

I have 2 questions about the Nikon P950: 1. How many focus points does it have? The Canon SX70 has nine.  Others have several times more.  I can't find this number anywhere for the Nikon.  Does it make much difference? 2. Dynamic range is oddly called "Backlighting".  Is it just "off" or "on", or are there several degrees of dynamic range available?  My $400 7 year old Fuji has 6 options for dynamic range and it works well.

I have the M5 camera and a good selection of native lenses. I also have the EF-M adaptor (currently unused). The longest reach I have with native is 200mm. I keep toying with the idea of getting something longer for wildlife and sports. I can't decide whether to: Do nothing. Use what I have and crop. Get a Sigma 150-600 contemporary (I could afford new) Get a Canon 100-400 L Mk1 used Get a Canon 100-400 L Mk2 used Get a Canon SX70 camera - giving me a second body and captive lens with a...

Hi All, Need help to choose a bridge camera. I have been a Canon user for so many years and for the last 5 yrs using sx50. I do a lot of Bird Photography and since my sx50 has started showing signs of ages want to upgrade it to the next camera (Bridge). Currently, I am getting 50% off on SX60 so want to know is it worth upgrading to sx60 from sx50? I am looking for a camera with better image quality than my sx50? P.S. I am not considering sx70 since it is very expensive. Thanks in...

Narrowing my choice to either the B700 and Canon SX70.  I found lots of info regarding photo quality (B700 seems to be better) but not much on video quality. Can someone please give me their impressions on the B700's 4k video quality....sharp, detailed image, graininess, dynamic range, autofocus performance?  Do you get full manual control when shooting video? Thanks in advance.

I just got this camera. (Finally, Canon refurbished) I have question: Say I put the camera in AV mode set it up and then save to C1. Then while shooting I decide to switch to TV mode, will all the other setting remain the same? Thank you

Hello everyone, I love my photography, but I am just a novice, is there anybody here please to help me find a camera that I want to buy. I was close to buying Canon PowerShot SX70 HS Camera cos I wanted a camera to zoom to view the craters on the moon etc, plus wifi with touchscreen hotshoe, shoots video in 4k and has a mic input. Then I realised this Canon lacked some things I wanted on my camera. Does anybody know of a camera that has all of the above please. I would appreciate any...
