Canon Powershot SX50 HS: Sample Shots

So, my first favorite camera Canon Powershot A710 IS is all set to take a backseat. I've purchased a Canon Powershot SX50 HS and have been exploring the features of this awesome camera. Some of the pros and cons of this camera are:

  • Longest available zoom at present. 50X Optical zoom equivalent to 24-1200mm.
  • Nice sturdy DSLR-like looks.
  • A wide variety of shooting modes and effects that you can use to take pictures on different occasions.
  • Excellent battery life.
  • Smart Auto Mode is good but it selects higher ISO in order to compensate the drawback of maximum aperture of f/6.5 and often resulting in heavy noise in the photos. This means a tripod will be a must in order to take photos at lower ISO and longer exposures.
  • I really miss an automatic switching betwen the LCD and the EVF. When I was learning how to use a DSLR, I really got used to the automatic switch between LCD and EVF.
However, so long as I'm not fully confident of carrying multiple lenses and a DSLR, I'll be happy using this long zoom Canon SX50 HS digital camera. Anyways, I'm not here to review the camera but to post a few test shots that I've taken over a period of past few days.

  2. Hi Kalpesh,

    Wow, this camera does have some awesome zoom capability, it's almost like a DSLR. The click of the moon's surface looks surreal, I'm amazed you shot it with this camera. Looks quite sturdy too.
    Thanks for this review. :)

  3. I am a sucker for photography. Though I don't know the ABC of it but I love a beautiful click. Beautiful shots! :)

  4. These pics are sooo beautiful!! and when its the nature's side I love them more..Wonderful clicks..

  5. Greetings, my friend. Thanks for your comments today. I'm not sure, though, what camera that young lady was using, but I think you are right. I bought a SX40 a couple of years ago and haven't had much luck with it but that may be because I don't know how to use it properly. I still use my Nikon D300 for most things. I also have a Canon S95 and I like that a lot. These are superb photos of the birds and I complement you.

    Hope that all is well with you and your family.

    I did check out your wife's new blog and it looks most interesting. Lois Anne would like it as she is a vegetarian!

  6. Hi can u tell me if it is better for low light pics also?
    Because most of d time we take photos indoor where light is little low.

    1. Hi, you definitely can't expect a DSLR type flexibility and quality but with use of tripod I have managed to capture some good photos.
