The light meter system seems to be good and accurate and performs well for landscape pictures. As for wildlife, I do need to practice to be able to get used to the long zoom. As far so good!

Hi Michael,

If you're interested, you can read about the way I use the SX50 for my bird & wildlife photos along with some hints & tips I've found useful for capturing the types of images I enjoy. Here are the link:

Looks like you're off to a great start and I look forward to seeing more of your photos with this camera.

Take care,

Tony

Tony,

Thank you very much for the tips on using this camera. I am familiar with the Canon family of DSLRs. Using this camera is a lot different from a DSLR in terms of handling and focusing plus getting used to the long zoom. I normally shoot birding pictures with a Sigma 150-500mm lens. After seeing your pictures, it opens my eyes to a new horizon. I can use the SX50HS as a walk-around camera. It is so convenient because of it size and yet it is quite versatile. I have been using it as a second camera when I go out birding in the last few days as a landscape camera. Thanks for your help!

Michael

Default Recent Updates

Hello,

I wanted to share my recent Canon SX50 updates with you. I'm enjoying my second SX50 as my first failed after many years of excellent service. Lot's of new photographs of my favorites subjects, which are birds. I've also updated my "Canon SX50 Hints & Tips" page, as well. The information is not intended to be a definitive user's guide to the camera, just how I enjoy using it.

Here's the links:

My main SX50 gallery:

If you have the time please visit my "Strictly For The Birds" gallery, which also features images from my Canon SX40 as well as a couple of older point-and-shoot cameras I've owned over the years. It's the gallery I'm most proud of. I hope you enjoy them!
