PhotoPlus Expo 2012: Canon PowerShot Sx50 HS superzoom

PhotoPlus Expo 2012: Canon PowerShot Sx50 HS superzoom

At PhotoPlus Expo, the Canon booth is displaying several recently announced models—but the most intriguing for me is the 12-megapixel Canon PowerShot SX50 HS, a superzoom camera.

As you can see in my photo, this camera has an extremely long zoom lens: 50x optical. In terms of range, that’s 24mm-1200mm. So in addition to a really long telephoto end of the zoom, you get wide-angle capability as well, allowing for quite a range of photographic possibilities.

The Sx50 also features a 12-megapixel back-lighted sensor, manual controls, RAW format support, and full 1080p HD video. It’s available now, listed for $480 at Canon.com.
