    Good focus HORRIBLE Mic, Horrible battery life.

    By MikeMikeMike

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Canon 12.1 MP PowerShot Digital Camera:

    I shoot youtube videos of wildlife and the outdoors. The zoom on the camera is great but does have a slight delay. The auto focus feature works sometimes but can be very troubling. The audio on this camera is HORRIBLE. I installed a foam wind screen over the two mic holes to reduce wind noise. If you are wanting an all around camera, buy the t3i or t5i. If you are wanting a camera with not a ton of lenses to change with high zoom, this is a decent camera. Battery will last about 2 hours.

    Best in my hands in 70 years

    By Budofthestar

    from San Antonio, Texas

    Comments about Canon 12.1 MP PowerShot Digital Camera:

    I have been taking pictures professionally for 69 years in the USA and Europe. I was forced to give up the120 size film in 1975. I had of course used 35mm also and got my first canon in Switzerland in 1957 (a VT Deluxe) I took it back to work in Germany and fell in love with it. No Canon has come out with this marvelous camera SX50HS which does everything a working pro would need. 24-1200 mm. Zoom lens (Sharp as a tack) . Shoots both RAW and Jpg.. Built in filters,and,a viewfinder and viewing Screen, ISO speeds up to 6400. All in a package no bigger then a old rangefinder camera. Now that may be the only problem I can see with the camera. It is so small and has so many buttons to push that it is very easy to push them by accident, but what else can you do with a camera with so many features? When combined with the right software I don't see anything beating it.

    Great little Camera

    By jazzsky

    from New Hampshire

    Comments about Canon 12.1 MP PowerShot Digital Camera:

    Got this camera to replace my SX10is. This camera works great and takes excellent pictures. The zoom extends the reach of my Canon 3ti with a 300mm zoom on the end. This camera meets and exceeds my needs as a backup camera to have on hand, for those really distant shots.

    Received this wonderful gift with every attachment you can imagine for Christmas. Have used it a limited number of times as I go thru the manual and try different things.

    Excellent zoom range

    By Princecraft

    from Buffalo Grove,IL

    Comments about Canon 12.1 MP PowerShot Digital Camera:

    Basically purchased the camera for taking landscape and nature photos. Have used the camera for about a month and it has exceeded all my expectations. I have taken photos of birds and wildlife in my back yard and I must say the pictures I took with the zoom lens were outstanding. The camera is easy to use and the zoom range is excellent. The camera is well made and battery life is very good.

    Great Camera

    By 100sofpictures

    from Florence, CO

    Comments about Canon 12.1 MP PowerShot Digital Camera:

    Love the SX50HS camera. It's even better than the SX40 and I didn't think that was possible. I own 4 SX cameras and have been pleased with all of them. I wore the first one out and use the other 3 all the time. Best camera's I've owned and I've owned several others.

    Still Learning

    By BW

    from Franklin,NC

    Comments about Canon 12.1 MP PowerShot Digital Camera:

    I am still learning how to use the SX50. It goes without saying that the 50x zoom is amazing, but there are so many things this camera can do. Even though it has been out for a couple of years, it still stacks up well against other superzoom cameras.

    Great value

    By Joe L

    from South east PAA

    Comments about Canon 12.1 MP PowerShot Digital Camera:

    This camera has a ton of features and from what I've seen so far, they all work as advertised - so many features that I can't remember them all. I wish the manual was a hard copy, not just a .pdf Also, I wish it came with a USB cable and a memory card. Quality of photos look great so far. I also wish the panoramic photos would self stitch like other cameras and my iPhone.

    Great Little Camera!

    By Letterlady

    from Bakersfield, VT, USA

    Comments about Canon 12.1 MP PowerShot Digital Camera:

    I love this camera! Has everything I need and is easy to bring along. I looked at a SLR and decided I didn't need all the bells and whistles. I mostly take pictures of family and nature shots and this camera has all I need for great candid shots and outdoor photography! I just wish they would send a written manual that is a bit larger and easier to read. I had to call and request one, and it is difficult to read. That shouldn't be hard to remedy, and I think it would make a lot of Canon buyers happy!
