Thanks very much. I'm enjoying my second SX50 as the first expired after many years of excellent service.

Thanks for taking the time to comment!

I'm happy with the results of the P610 and feel it compares well with the SX50. Like the Canon, the P610 is capable of capturing remarkable detail. I'm able to achieve the desired results I want with either camera because I've embraced a particular look I desire in my photographs that features portrait style captures of my subjects utilizing side-side lighting and exposures favoring the darker end of the spectrum.

I decided to purchase the P610 after my first SX50 failed. I've since purchased a second SX50 simply because I love using it. It's difficult to be disappointed with any camera regardless of make, model or price if you know what you want in your photography and are willing to invest the time and effort to learn how to steer the camera in the direction to achieve that goal. Any camera should allow you to do just that. Because of this, I've owned cameras from Sony, Olympus, Canon and Nikon and have always been happy with the results!

Beyond the hardware I've used in my photography the greatest joy has been learning the profound difference between "making" a photograph and simply "taking" a photograph. There's an enormous chasm between the two.

Default Inner Space Meets Outer Space

When I last visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, Califronia, my primary interest was jellyfish. I wanted to create the effect of an image you might see in astrophotography similar to photographs of deep space nebulae, for example. I waited for this jellyfish to move into good light.

By using a relatively fast shutter speed and "negative" exposure compensation, the jellyfish remained well-lit while the area surrounding the jellyfish darkened. The particles floating within the tank took on the appearance of "stars" and the lovely patch of blue is due to the color of a wall within the display.

Hand-held, no cropping.

Tony

Love the "Jellyfish in Space"
And yes- one you learn a given camera's foibles- most are capable of capturing what you want...
