  • Overview

    The Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Digital Camera is the world's first compact digital camera with a 50x optical zoom lens. The impressive focal length range extends all the way from a wide-angle 24mm to a super-telephoto 1200mm (35mm equivalent). The camera has a 12.1MP CMOS image sensor and a DIGIC 5 Image Processor, enabling you to capture high-resolution JPEG and RAW still images, as well as full HD 1080p video with stereo sound. The 2.8" Vari-Angle LCD monitor features a resolution of 461,000 pixels and an electronic viewfinder.

    Sensitivity up to ISO 6400 helps the camera produce clear, detailed images even in low-light situations. Optical image stabilization compensates for camera shake in these conditions for crisp, blur-free image quality. High Speed AF provides fast 0.19-sec focusing, improving upon the SX40 HS's 0.38 sec, and a reduction in shooting lag time from 0.45 sec (on the SX40 HS) to 0.25 sec to ensure that you don't miss a shot. Zoom Framing Assist Seek and Lock functions make it easy to track your subjects and keep them centered in the frame until you capture the image.

    50x Optical Zoom Lens

    The 4.3-215mm focal length range extends all the way from a wide-angle 24mm to a super-telephoto 1200mm (35mm equivalent), for exceptional versatility up close and far away

    RAW Image Capture

    Shooting in RAW mode records all the information captured by the sensor, giving you maximum flexibility and creative control when editing your images with Canon's included software. In RAW mode, choose from several aspect ratios, including 16:9, 3:2, 4:3, 1:1, and 4:5. Record simultaneously in RAW and JPEG formats, as well

    Optical Image Stabilizer

    Delivers clear, blur-free image quality in low light or when the camera shakes, without the use of a tripod. Plus, you have Intelligent IS to automatically select from six different modes to optimize image stabilization for the given situation: Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod IS for stills; and Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod IS for video. Dynamic IS, effective at wide-angle focal lengths, has been improved, now compensating for rotational movement centered on the optical axis in addition to horizontal tilt and vertical pitch. Panning ensures IS does not interfere with camera movement. Hybrid corrects for shift-type camera shake that normally occurs during macro shooting. Powered mode compensates for hand movement at telephoto focal lengths, where camera shake gets magnified. Tripod mode automatically stops the IS system when tripod use is detected, because it is no longer necessary

    Fast Focusing and Shorter Lag Time

    High Speed AF provides faster focusing at 0.19 sec, compared to 0.38 sec on the SX40 HS, and a reduction in shooting lag time from 0.45 sec (on the SX40 HS) to 0.25 sec also helps ensure that you don't miss a shot (measured at light value LV 13, P mode / Single AF (center point)). Camera has both TTL autofocus and manual focus

    Zoom Framing Assist Seek and Lock

    The Seek functions make it easy to locate and track your subject, even at a long distance, and keep it centered in the frame until you capture the image. Just press a button and this function recalls your previous zoom position, zooms out to let you locate the subject, and zooms right back to the saved position when you release the button. With Zoom Framing Assist Lock, the camera locks onto and automatically tracks your subject, keeping it in the center of the frame until you're ready to capture that close-up shot
