    Good, bad and bottom line - CNET Reviews


    The Canon PowerShot SX50 HS has an extraordinary zoom range with excellent image stabilization and fine photo quality for a megazoom; plenty of shooting modes, from full auto to full manual; raw image capture; and a hot shoe for adding an external flash.


    Its lens and high-ISO picture quality make it less desirable for shooting indoors or in low light, especially without a tripod. A couple of things about the design of the controls might make shooting frustrating for some users. Outside of its long lens, its features and performance are slightly behind competing models.

    Bottom Line

    If you simply must have the longest zoom in the room, the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS satisfies.

    Rated 4.5 out of 5★ by 129reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by zoom, zoom I bought this camera to downsize from a SLR. I found that I often went without a camera because I didn't want to "lug" the big camera around. I wanted a full-featured SMALL camera. The 50x zoom was the main reason I chose THIS camera. It didn't disappoint. The 50x zoom is incredible! Sure, this camera has all the bells and whistles that the other point and shoot cameras have, but the zoom capability is so amazing! Nothing else compares. 01/30/2014
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by help\\\\ nice pictures, clear and precise. needed help from granddaughter to set it up, more things on this one than the one I have, but it just takes practice, i'm so excited for spring to come. worth the money! 02/02/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Service I was very impressed about a recall I had on the SX50HS ...the rubber around the eye viewer ... received the notice, was instructed as to how to send back to the company ...Canon ...turn around time was just over a week ...and I received a new camera to replace the one I had ... GREAT JOB CANON and Dave have a life time customer...the five star ratings are because of the service ...rating on the camera will come later ...but I bet its as good as the service 02/03/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by most bang for the buck Took my new sx50 to Costa Rica- Caught amazing images in Tortagero. Birds - Toucans and Macaws even at full zoom are clear. Monkeys - white face, spider, howler pics are amazingly clear. 02/11/2014
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by very dissatisfied Purchased camera for a bird watching trip to Costa Rica. One week into trip camera stopped working. Others on trip with same camera had similar problems. This was an expensive trip in which I had no camera for most of it. Fortunately the retailer I purchased it from gave me a full refund. 02/17/2014
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good, but with some major reservations I like this camera overall. Image quality is excellent in terms of detail, color accuracy, saturation, sharpness, consistency, and depth of field at all aperture settings. I tested 6 other competitive cameras in the super-zoom bridge camera category, and this is the camera I ultimately purchased.So, end results are very good, and there is a lot to like here. However, the amount of text permitted in this review will not provide room for all the positives, so I am afraid I will have to “focus” on the negatives – issues that I would like to see corrected in the next iteration of this camera. (BTW, Canon – it would be nice if you told prospective reviewers the MAXIMUM number of characters allowed so we don’t have to use guesswork & trial-and-error to find out!)The absolute MOST annoying design flaw in this camera is that the self-timer button is located on the far right-hand edge of the back of the camera. This is a terrible location for this or any other control button, since almost every time you pick up, pass, or hold the camera to shoot, the heel of your palm presses this button and activates the timer. Often this cannot be corrected with just a single button press, as the timer has a number of elapsed time options and you may have to depress the button numerous times to turn the timer off to commence shooting! One has to learn how to delicately and unnaturally hold the camera to prevent this from occurring, and even then it happens consistently despite one’s best efforts. This flaw drives me out of my mind, and if it were not for the camera’s good performance which has forced me to learn to live with this perpetual frustrating annoyance, this would be a total deal-breaker.Second major issue: the electronic LCD viewfinder’s resolution at a mere 202k dots is junk compared with competitors, all of which at least more than quadruple this spec! I use an EVF a lot, and it is almost essential if you want to take photos in bright light or shoot extended telephoto shots without camera-shake blur. Moreover, the diopter adjustment wheel is EXTREMELY difficult to operate.Related to the EVF inferiority is the inconvenient location of the button which alternates the photographer’s view between the EVF and the LCD screen, and its inconvenient operation. You must pull the camera well away from your face to locate and operate it, and since the button is one of many dual-function buttons, you must press it twice quickly to change the views, which slows down composition & shooting. This camera either needs a well-designed automatic EVF-switching sensor, or else the button needs to be relocated - ideally to the left side of the flash unit near the diopter, where it belongs!The telephoto is amazing. There is a button on the side of the lens barrel that further locks in the image stabilization at extreme focal lengths, although it is a bit clumsy to use, is difficult to locate by feel, and often jars the camera when one tries to depress it, thus defeating its efficacy entirely! At greater telephoto lengths in dim light the camera does often have to “hunt” for focus, resulting in a lot of noisy lens extension and retraction buzzes and grinds that don't have a pleasing high-quality mechanical sound to them!There are no in-camera adjustable settings for contrast, sharpness, or noise-reduction, which I initially found unusual since this camera’s competitors (that I tested) all include such adjustment settings. However, and luckily, the default settings and the resulting images in these areas are so good that I don’t miss being able to tweak them.The owner’s manual is very lengthy, convoluted, and most sections are loaded with cross-references to other pages and sections, making instructions very laborious and confusing to follow as you attempt to flip back and forth between all the cross-references and sub-cross-references. Like all cameras these days, the manual is only available in electronic form, which makes it virtually impossible to use. Fortunately, there are online services which for a reasonable price will produce print copies of the manual and provide fast delivery.Features I would like to see in addition to a correction of the major complaints mentioned above: a lens cap that pops off when you turn on the camera and the lens extends, like my previous camera offered; an on-screen battery status indicator that A.) doesn’t start flashing CONTINUALLY onscreen once you get down to 25% battery power, ceasing only when battery is depleted (a REALLY annoying feature of this camera!), and B.) tells how many minutes or shots remain on the battery charge rather than simply depicting a very gross and generalized full /empty battery symbol that all-too-quickly goes into flash alert mode (see A., preceding!). 02/28/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great camera at any price I shoot a lot of wildlife esp. birds. Because of the 1200mm zoom and because it is light to carry it has been a dream to use.After hundreds of photos with super results I have never been happier with a product. Because of my experience 2 friends have purchased this camera. I hand hold it and shoot at 1200 mm and a birds eye will be In perfect focus.. 03/11/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Perfect for a safari I bought this camera 1.5 years ago because I was going on an african safari and was impressed by the zoom videos on youtube.The you tube videos don't do this camera justice. This is the most amazing camera. Everyone on the safari wanted this camera because they were amazed by the quality of the pictures i was able to capture of animals so far away. Took it on a glacier cruise later. Caught my mother packing it in her bag because she loved it as well. She ended up buying her own.I'm off to Machu Picchu and Easter Island and can't wait to use it again! 04/10/2014
