p.1 #1 · 50x Optical Zoom Point and shoot - Canon SX50HS


I love shooting the sun with very long focal lengths with foregrounds in silhouette. I enjoyed this when I had my Canon 500mm f/4 L and a 1.4x TC and later, a 600mm f/5.6 Nikon lens. Since I have neither of them, I'm desperate and thought I'd give this P&S a try. Canon SX50HS with 24-1200mm optical zoom on a tiny 1/2.3" sensor. The sun hid all day, so I didn't get a chance to try it out, but in case anyone's interested, here's how much it can zoom in. Both handheld in moderately bad lighting.

Pic 1 .. 24mm






Pic 2 - 1200mm

Hopefully it works good for large sun photos and bird photos better than digiscoping gear.

That monster zoom is intriguing... how is the EVF and high iso performance on it?

The EVF is useless. You have to trust it's in focus and click. The rotating LCD is great as with many Canon models. High ISO .. I have it set to ISO 100, but will try some high ISO ones soon and post them. Still waiting to get one of the large sun. When I get out of gym, the sun's gone.

Not too shabby. Handheld again. One of these days I'll get my tripod out.

Disclaimer: Don't look directly into the sun

I posted the second one to show how big the sun looks at full zoom on this cam.
