Get closer with the 50x ultra wide-angle zoom
An incredible 50x optical zoom extends from 24mm to 1200mm* and up to 100x with ZoomPlus. This allows you to quickly and efficiently capture a vast range of subjects, from exceptional long-range close-ups of wildlife to impressive landscapes, with just one camera. An Ultra Sonic Motor ensures fast, near-silent zooming so you can photograph your subjects without disturbing them.
Sharp shots with Intelligent IS
The 4.5-stop optical Image Stabilizer delivers sharp images in low light conditions or when using the 50x optical zoom at its full extent. Intelligent IS automatically selects the optimal Image Stabilizer mode from seven options, ensuring sharp, detailed images whatever the situation. This compensates for camera shake thereby reducing the risk of blurred images.

An improved Auto Focus (AF) system makes it easy for users to capture sharply-focused stills. The PowerShot SX50 HS has an AF speed of 0.19 seconds at the wide-angle; a reduction of 50% compared to its predecessor the PowerShot SX40 HS. In addition, the total shooting time lag has been reduced by 44% to 0.25 seconds (based on the CIPA standard).
Capture high quality images even in low light
A powerful combination of DIGIC 5 image processor and 12.1 Megapixel high-sensitivity CMOS sensor, the HS System allows you to shoot with low noise and high image quality even in low light without the use of flash or a tripod.
Record life as a movie in stunning high definition
Record your own superb, Full HD (1080p) movies at 24fps with stereo sound. The Enhanced Dynamic IS compensates for rolling motion and conventional camera shake to produce sharp movies. The HDMI connection gives high quality playback on a compatible HDTV so you can enjoy your movies in perfect clarity and with crystal clear sound.
Vari-angle LCD and Viewfinder for versatile shooting
A 7.1 cm (2.8”) vari-angle PureColor II VA LCD provides excellent visibility and easy framing from even the most difficult of angles. Additionally, the electronic viewfinder (EVF) lets you shoot using your own style and enables you to view subjects clearly in very bright conditions.
Manual modes and RAW give the control to you
Manual modes let you take full control of exposure by choosing settings for aperture, shutter speed, White Balance and ISO. Shoot in RAW with multi-aspect support to give you maximum control over composition and post-shot editing using the supplied DPP software.

Enhanced Zoom Framing Assist
Enhanced Zoom Framing Assist helps keep track of distant subjects at full zoom. Pressing the Lock button engages the Image Stabilizer to keep the subject static while using full zoom. The Seek button quickly zooms the camera out of the scene so that you can relocate the subject, and zooms back in when the button is released. So you can track and photograph distant subjects without them getting away.

Whether at the seaside in bright sunshine or on a shady woodland walk, you can be confident that your shots will look just as you remember them.
High-speed Burst HQ

There was a nikon this year, another lumix and i think a fuji.
After a lot of research i chose the sx50. You can pull a shot out of any situation with this. Pictures of the surface of the moon are easy, just set the exposure low (-2ish) so its not washed out by the average dark sky.
I know that low light noise is a problem with all small sensor superzooms, compared with slrs. But the convenience of not carrying around a big bag of lenses means you use your camera more and take more shots.
Admittedly my use of these camera's is pretty specialist but they also perform pretty well on video mode and other functions. For the money they are incredible value when compared to buying a pukka DSLR with a separate stabalised lenses. They just keep getting better and better!
Only gripe which would cost a star if it were not a separate issue from the camera's performance is that it arrived with a separate universal (?) charger rather than the Canon charger that was supplied with the SX40. It does not appear to match the contacts but as I have the SX40 charger which does, Its not as big a problem as it would otherwise be. It also leaves me wondering why they did not supply the pukka charger???
Light enough to carry around with binoculars and telescope in the field and good potential for birding.
A digital SLR with a large lens would be too much extra weight to contemplate so this seems a good compromise at a sensible price.
Easy to get onto target using zoom feature and easy to use as a regular cameral when not birding.
