50x ultra wide-angle zoom
With an incredible 50x optical zoom reaching from 24mm to 1200mm* (up to 100x with ZoomPlus) you can capture a huge range of subjects with one camera – from exceptional long range close ups of wildlife to impressive landscapes. An Ultra Sonic Motor ensures fast, near-silent zooming.
Sharp shots with Intelligent IS
A 4.5 stop optical Image Stabilizer delivers sharp images in low light or when using the full extent of the zoom. Intelligent IS automatically selects the optimal Image Stabilizer mode from 7 options, to ensure clear, detailed images.
12.1MP HS System with DIGIC 5
A powerful combination of DIGIC 5 image processor and 12.1 Megapixel high-sensitivity CMOS sensor, HS System lets you shoot with low noise and high image quality even in low light without flash or tripod.
Full HD Movies, HDMI
Record superb, Full HD (1080p) movies at 24fps with stereo sound. Enhanced Dynamic IS compensates for rolling motion plus conventional camera shake for steady movies. HDMI connection allows for loss-less, high quality playback on a compatible HDTV.
Vari-angle LCD and Viewfinder
A 7.1 cm (2.8”) vari-angle PureColor II VA LCD provides excellent visibility and easy framing from difficult angles. An EVF lets you shoot using your own style and view subjects clearly in very bright conditions.
Enhanced Zoom Framing Assist
Enhanced Zoom Framing Assist helps keep track of distant subjects at full zoom. Pressing the Lock button engages the Image Stabilizer to keep the subject static while using full zoom. The Seek button quickly zooms the camera out of the scene - so you can relocate the subject - zooming back when the button is released.
Manual modes, RAW
Manual modes let you take full control of exposure - choose settings for aperture, shutter speed, WB and ISO. Shoot in RAW with multi aspect support, for maximum control over composition and post-shot editing using the supplied DPP software.
Smart Auto with Multi-area WB
Smart Auto selects camera settings from 58 scenes (21 in movies), ensuring optimum results. Multi-area White Balance captures the natural colour of scenes illuminated by multiple light sources.
High-speed Burst HQ
Capture fast action in full 12.1 MP resolution, at up to 13 shots/sec for up to 10 shots, using High-speed Burst HQ mode.

Tremendous full-Optical Zoom Video

About Me Casual Photographer
Comments about Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Black Digital Camera:
This camera survived and performed perfectly taking full 50x optical zoom in a number of vacation sandstorms (Africa) and gale-force winds.The video quality it produced at max settings was superb (using class 10 SD card). I cannot comment on stills as most of my endeavour was video. The vari-angle LCD is a triumph when attempting to shoot from foul weather cover and protect the camera.Despite being peppered with sand on numerous occasions, the lens mechanics never failed. The battery life, too, was very acceptable. I doubt whether it will ever face such an arduous set of conditions again but it has survived to meet yet another day's constant shoooting.Beneath pro-spec cameras this surely is Canon's masterpiece in the everyday affordability market. As soon as they bring out a 75 or 100x optical zoom lens model in the same powershot series at a similar decent price (sub-£400) I'll snap it up without hesitation if the results are anything close to what I just achieved.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice Compact Camera
See all my reviews
I am a keen photographer and bought this camera for my wife in the hope that she will develop an passion for photography rather than being a photography widow, so far the camera is doing the trick as she has hardly put it down since I gave it to her.

Nice all rounder with a few niggles
By Moonraker Imp
I purchased this camera a couple of weeks ago as a general all round camera, in addition to a Canon DSLR, to avoid those times when you have to keep changing lenses.In general the camera is great but a few minor niggles take the shine off of the overall experience.Firstly the auto focus can be a little slow. This may be resolved with further adjustment of the settings, but at the present time it has been used primarily in full auto mode.Secondly is that while a small flash is built in it has to be manually opened before it will function. My DSLR has a similar small flash but that will open automatically when required.Finally is the inability to record pictures in RAW when using automatic settings. It seems silly to allow you to record in RAW when you are controlling the camera, but not when in auto mode. Is Canon that sure of the auto mode that no adjustment is ever going to be needed?
