Canon Sx50 Hs Price

Clicking on the pictures will take you directly to the review. The Japanese manufacturer Canon has been offering its customers a selection of compact and bridge superzoom cameras with the SX models for several years now. In the fall of last year, we were able to thoroughly test the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS (spec sheet). underwent a thorough test. Today, its successor, the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS (datasheet), has to prove itself in a dkamera test. has to prove itself in the dkamera test. A 50x optical zoom (focal length from 24mm to 1,200mm, F3.4 to F6.5) is the digital camera’s most unique selling point. And also the display, which we already found to be too coarse in our dkamera test (Canon PowerShot SX40 HS test report) (Canon PowerShot SX40 HS review), has now been replaced by a higher resolution one (461,000 pixels) and can still be rotated and swiveled.

What has remained the same and what innovations can you expect? Nothing new but an old acquaintance is the 1/2.3 inch backside exposed (BSI) CMOS image sensor with 12 megapixel resolution. And the Digic 5 image processor has already been used in combination with the sensor. For all videographers, the Full HD video function with 24 frames per second remains, of course. What’s new now? The new model finally offers the possibility to save images in RAW format (at Canon “.CR2”) as well, thus offering more freedom when post-processing the shots. Low-light photographers will certainly be happy about the extended ISO sensitivity range. While this was still 100 to 3,200 ISO for the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS, it now ranges from 80 to 6,400 ISO for the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS. In this camera class, features such as intelligent scene detection (Smart Auto), various creative filters, a high-speed continuous shooting mode or even full manual control should not be missing. The new bridge camera model can offer all this to its owner. How all-round capable is such a 50x zoom lens really and, above all, what image quality can still be expected from this “zoom behemoth” and ISO 6,400 at full image resolution? We found out for you.
