Editor's Review

Canon has leapfrogged Nikon's P510 with the SX50 HS, a camera sporting an improbably long 24-1200mm 50x optical zoom. They're claiming improved image stabilization, up to 4.5 stops, but hand-holding 1200mm is bound to be difficult. Other improvements include better autofocus, a slightly enlarged 2.8-inch swivel touchscreen, and built-in wireless. The release has even more clearly divided the market into Panasonic's FZ200, with its relatively short 24x zoom and fast lens speed, and the ever-lengthening zoom ranges of other models. It will be interesting to see where other manufacturers, most notably Fujifilm, fall in future releases.

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Reviews

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Top quality optics, reliability, and convenience of use are just some of the reasons that customers choose Canon digital cameras. Canon has become widely recognized for manufacturing some of the finest digital cameras and digital SLRs that you can buy, and is one of the largest manufacturers of digital cameras in today's world. Consumers looking for top quality cameras often have at least a few cameras by Canon on their wish list. Then it should come as no surprise that Canon has repeatedly won PC Magazine's Reader's Choice Award for Service and Reliability and camera models are given top marks in reviews consistently.

Canon is not traditionally a cheap brand by any means. In spite of this, Canon digital cameras have earned the best buy status. This should show you that the higher price tag is well deserved. Recently, Canon begun producing several models that are less expensive, without sacrificing quality. The Canon PowerShot A1200 is one such example. The A1200 has a small optical viewfinder that makes it easier to shoot outdoors as well as AA batteries, unlike a lot of other models that can be found at this low of a price.

The Powershot A series, the SD or ELPH series compact point-and-shoots, and the Rebel consumer dSLRs like the T4i are a few Canon digital cameras that have highly praised across the board. Solid design, ease of use, and high picture quality are things you can expect when you own a Canon camera. The Canon enthusiast compacts found in the G and S series cameras are among the finest Canon digital cameras available. These models have overwhelmed the advanced digital camera market for quite some time, being great for both amateurs and professionals requiring something pocketable. For example, the Canon PowerShot G15 boasts an LCD screen that swivels, and a 12 megapixel sensor. It is also perfect for low light photography due to its very fast lens.

GPS and WiFi are features that Canon has been adding to its mid and high-end models recently to keep their cameras specifications right on the cutting edge. These better specifications differentiate the upper models from lower-end cameras, but mean that they also have a higher price tag. With so many features you can find and so many models available, it's always in your best interest to do your research and read Canon digital camera reviews and ratings. Experts recommend reading reviews from users like you to find out if a specific model is right for you.
