The image on the left show the camera wide, while the image on the right shows it zoomed all the way out. Hand held. The yellow/green mark on the left shows where the player is standing.

That's a nice example of what the SX50 can do. I am continually surprised at how well it performs handheld and zoomed all the way out. The very first photo I took like that, the image on the back screen was jumping all over, I wasn't even sure what I was focused on, but the photo turned out very nice.

I plan to go back to the baseball park soon, and, will bring a monopod.When I snapped the pics above, I was curled up in my seat, knee raised to use as a foundation, one hand under the lens, holding my breath.

Somewhere on the forum I read that the newest version will go to 2000mm, a good crazy.

I wish the extended zoom feature was available in raw not just jpg.

I used Define to clean up the noise.

I have used the SX50 a lor for good bird photos. My favourite shot though is one of the Parthenon from the top of an apartment block in Athens, 2.2 km away. It was a typical hot evening with heat haze shimmer and and the Athens smog. 1200mm effective f, 1/320s, iso 80, hand held. Raw processed in DxO plus corrections for haze etc in PS. Downsized to 1200 px wide from 4000.

Alan, what settings did you use to be able to use Raw at 1200mm? I thought it was only jpeg. Thx

Program(me) or AV.

You want more. Well, here is a rainbow lorikeet at 1200mm, a well-known American at 674mm (I was able to sneak in a small camera into the audience) and sunset over Rome at 24mm.

How does this compare to eos m? These photos got me thinking! Thanks for sharing I sure do love the wide to tele comparisons I'm kinda impressed by the photos.

I've had my eye on this cam since it came out ( want but don't need )

The price has just dropped quite a bit (in Canada anyway ) as expected at certain stores -
Very tempting to get one now.
