Three major changes of the SX50 over the SX40 - a larger zoom, built-in GPS and RAW support.
Canon claim faster focusing times, but that remains to be seen.

A quote from a German website:

Die SX50 HS gibt es ab Ende September 2012 für 530 Euro zu kaufen.

So they increased the zoom on the SX40HS to 1200mm on the SX50HS.

But wait...they made the whole optical train...SLOWER.

SX40HS ...24mm @ f/2.7 => 840mm @ f/5.7
SX50HS ...24mm @ f/3.5 => 1200mm @ f/6.3

No wonder they upped the ISO


Lotsa stuff, running outta room and a wife...I keep looking at her and wondering??? :lol:

Looks like a compromise In quality from what I could see, looks very plasticy and not an expensive looking plastic, like Its been thought out In a hurry, I'm sorry but I don't like the look-shape of the sx40 either, as It reminds me of the shape of the old Minolta pre digi slr's 7.8.9 etc.
With all the money that camera companies development departments have, you would have thought they would have come up with a few really tasty(quality looking) bridge cameras by now, but I guess they don't want to loose their dslr buyers to bridge cameras If they become to desireable.....


Some stuff.

Gosh, I hope so. I could bake a cake from scratch in the time it takes my
SX40 to focus.

A 50x zoom? Does anyone else think the megapixel wars has been replaced with a zoom extension war? Honestly, how much zooming do you need before it gets absurd?

Good question. Anything over about 15X needs a tripod to steady the shot, even with IS. And let's not mention atmospheric haze and the other long-lens shooting bugaboos.

Yep, i found the 20X zoom on my Finepix to be enough.

Canon had the solution for this superzoom, they add Zoom Framing Assist " two buttons on the lens"
used for saved position,and automatically track a subject.


this video will explain how its work

Sorry, but that's just not true. With care and using help when available for steadying the camera (a tree, post, sitting down etc.) the 36x zoom on the SX40 is perfectly usable. I frequently shoot birds with it at max zoom.
