4 out of 5 stars   Very nice camera
By The Commissioner (Nashville, TN) June 15, 2015
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX60 HS 65x Zoom High-Performance Camera 32GB Bundle (E3CNPSSX50HS)
Verified Purchaser

Verified Reviewer
Pros: You don't buy a camera like the SX50 HS because it is perfect, you buy it because it is perfect for YOU. One of the first things I did when I got it was buy a "Filter Adapter" for the front of the lens so accessories could be added on. For me that was a circular polarizer, a protective UV filter, and for more creative ventures a "wide angle adapter" to turn what's already the equivalent of a 28mm wide angle setting into practically a fisheye. It's lightweight, versatile, and doesn't encumber me as I hike or manage the campsite. Remember, the best camera in the world is the ONE YOU HAVE WITH YOU when something wonderful happens. All too frequently my enormous Nikon D700 was not with me. This camera is. End result is more and better photographic records of my adventures.
Cons: The only real cons are for people used to big DSLRs that have a dial outside for everything. I got spoiled having dedicated buttons for everything, and trying to remember the three things a button does when the button only says one thing is a bit of a pain. The only question that should be in your mind is if the inconvenience is WORTH IT. For me the answer is yes. With auto settings engaged, chances are you won't worry as much as I do. The camera body is a bit small, especially if you have big hands like mine. That's not a deal killer, but if you trade up to the new SX60 HS you might like the substantial feel better...at a price premium.
Other Comments: The best part of this "bridge" camera is the convenience of point and shoot with many of the essential features of a DSLR to be a real camera and not a toy. I miss my big DSLR but every time I get a picture solely because of the convenience of this camera, I'm very glad I own it.

5 out of 5 stars   Canon XS50 HS
By FredsDad (Albuquerque, NM) June 11, 2015
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX60 HS 65x Zoom High-Performance Camera 32GB Bundle (E3CNPSSX50HS)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: The camera does EVERYTHING that I need, especially when we drive to Alaska in August, it will do wonders when shooting wild life and many landscapes and mountains. Very easy to learn and to shoot with...rapid learning curve (and that's for an 80 y.o.). It replaces a Canon Powershot G9 which my wife will be using.
Cons: Just a little bit larger than I expected, but easy to handle.
Other Comments: I would not hesitate to recommend this camera to anyone.

5 out of 5 stars   In love with new camera
By Tracey (Tampa, FL) May 28, 2015
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX60 HS 65x Zoom High-Performance Camera 32GB Bundle (E3CNPSSX50HS)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I received the camera last week so I'm still experimenting with it. The LCD panel gives a clear picture, love that I can recharge the battery and save money on double As, the camera came with a case, mini tripod, memory stick and an extra battery. It took some nice close-ups of wildflowers.
Cons: Holding the camera caused me to inadvertently click on other nearby buttons. I'll have t get used to holding the camera differently and I don't see this as a problem. Being able to use the viewfinder is important however the picture appears blurry and I haven't figured out how to correct this. Again, it may mean more time troubleshooting.
Other Comments: A camera shop owner highly recommended this camera (not purchased from his store) as one that is the best value for what the camera does.

By sky (texas) May 19, 2015
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX60 HS 65x Zoom High-Performance Camera 32GB Bundle (E3CNPSSX50HS)

Pros: I love the camera, and at a very good price. Ordering was quick and easy. Tracking the item was easy, and it arrived in 5 days. I cant wait till vacation (Alaska) and really put this camera to use!
Cons: The bag is flimsy, but I had one from previous camera so no big deal. The 'small' tripod is just that, very small. I might use it as a handle though, so it will be used.

Pros: Excellent zoom, photo detail quality, "auto" mode. The feature that takes and automatically combines several photos at different exposure levels, to correct difficult lighting situations, is terrific.
Cons: The stitch assist is not as good as the panoramic mode on some other cameras.
Other Comments: The bundle price at Buydig was the best I could find on the internet.

Pros: Versatile Fast delivery
Cons: None
Other Comments: Here are some pictures from our new Canon Powershot SX50 that were not attached to my first review. Note the detail in the bee's wings on the close-up shot. On the medium-range shot, you can see the trout that the parent osprey has for the three babies in the nest on the Jefferson River in Montana. Finally, the long-distance moon shot speaks for itself!

Pros: Great pictures Long battery life Easy to use 50X zoom Convenient size Light weight
Cons: None...
Other Comments: I bought this as a birthday gift for my wife, and she loves it! We are retired in the mountain area near Yellowstone National Park and take many pictures of scenery and wildlife. This camera is an excellent complement to her Canon Sure Shot that she carries with her everywhere. It takes awesome pictures and is equally good on closeups of wildflowers as on long-distance shots of eagles. Moreover, the package price at Buydig makes it a terrific bargain.

5 out of 5 stars   Canon Power Shot SX50 HS
By Photo Junky (Fort Worth, TX) June 23, 2014
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX50 HS 50x Zoom High-Performance Camera 16GB Bundle (E2CNPSSX50HS)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: This was a great deal and the camera takes wonderful photos! I bought it to take photos of my new grandbaby and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of the pictures! I am still learning how to use all the features but it seems like it won't be difficult at all.
Cons: I do wish the two 'Framing Assist' buttons were in a different location as it is very easy to click on them when I'm holding the camera. This might not matter once I learn how to use them. But, other than that, I am very happy with the camera!
