Canon PowerShot SX50 HS

 

An affordable bridge camera with a huge 50x optical zoom

Huge 50x optical zoom, Hotshoe for accessories, Articulated screen

Occasional issues with focusing, Poor quality EVF, Bulky and unrefined design

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS

 

It's hard to ignore the Canon PowerShot's SX50 HS's 50x optical zoom. Never before has a superzoom laid a 24-1200mm equivalent lens on the features table - something that, in terms of maximum focal length, leaves all other superzooms in the shade. But...

Raw shooting, decent optical image stabilisation system, vari-angle LCD, among the best superzoom image quality at lower ISO settings, close-up macro mode

Chromatic aberrations, limited maximum aperture at longer focal lengths (and less bright than predecessor), auto-area focus can decide to focus on some strange areas, small viewfinder, shorter battery life than predecessor, stabilisation struggles at...

The Canon PowerShot SX50 HS lands one big punch with its 24-1200mm lens. But it's not all 100 per cent rosy: the limited aperture at the longest focal length will force use of higher ISO settings and the lens is trying to do so very much that some...

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS review

 

Canon's superzoom bridge packs a whopping 50x zoom

50x zoom range ; Raw format shooting ; Articulating screen ; Low image noise

Poor EVF

The bridge area of the compact camera market is one part of the market that is still doing well in what is otherwise a declining segment.

Quick Review - Canon SX50 HS

 

The SX50 HS is packed with features, but it is also exceptionally easy to pick up and start photographing with, not forgetting its massive 50x zoom, which makes it ideal for shooting wildlife or kids’ sport. It has a RRP of R5 000.

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Review

 

The Canon PowerShot SX50 HS is a camera that combines an amazingly long zoom lens and a set of enthusiast and novice features, all packed into a surprisingly small bridge-style body and keeping it all relatively easy to use too. Honestly, make no...
