That 65x optical zoom is a real treat and the build in stability is awesome. We were at a kids party yesterday and played around with the camera a bit

Places such as ORMS has no stock of the SX50 ....

Only place you will find that model is when makro dumps the old stock onto the market.


The SX50 was a VERY decent bridge camera ! the SX60 should be STUNNING !!!!!!!!

And it is :yahoo:

If you can, aim for the SX60 HS if you can. Except for the additional optical zoom it has over the SX50 HS, there is quite a few other features that is very nice in the SX60 HS. One of them is the built in WIFI. You can now wireless control your unit via a smartphone or laptop. You can also while shooting, upload the photos to another device. This is all built into the camera where as with other cameras you have to buy quite an expensive module in order to be able to do the above.

Ek het 'n SX40HS en is baie beindruk met die kamera, kan dan net dink wat die SX50 en SX60 moet kan doen!

En dan natuurlik, iets soos 'n 7D wanneer ek eendag groot is... :clap:

I considered this camera and then got the Fujifilm S1 and I am very happy with it.
