The new HS50EXR superzoom camera has some impressive features I think any photographer can enjoy. After a week of playing with the camera certainly the zoom capability shines bright! With a 42X zoom from 24mm to 1000mm it is truly a new type of optical power in your photo arsenal.
I am showing some of the highlights of the camera below - but for complete details check out the link above or read the reviews beginning to pop up online.
The camera shares the Q button with others in our line up. This popular Quick access to the menu is a handy way to control your camera settings.
The HS series has long been known for its high speed capability and the HS50EXR shows it off in the movie mode as well as frame rate for still shooting.
Digital zoom allows you to get an approximately 84x effective zoom image. That's about 2,000mm.
Focus peaking is included as well. Of course Raw files.
Internal and external mic capability.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE have a flip out and tilt swivel LCD - AWESOME!!
This was a quick snap showing the power of the zoom. The next four images show a scene then a woman who happened to be in the scene....
