Was it hard to get sharp images @1200mm? I know it was :)

It was impossible in that hall - it was much too dark. :D
But the HS system is pretty impressive. Shorter focal lengths worked great (come on - 1/8 of a second without shake at an equivalent focal length of 200mm!) and I guess outside even the 1200mm would have been possible in cloudy weather.

Don't you mean the IS system? And 1/8 @200mm while getting sharp shots? Very nice :)
Just one doubt that just surfaced in my mind: weren't the slow apertures way too uncomfortable, especially with longer focal lengths? I saw that @1200mm the aperture is f/6.5, quite slow in my opinion.

Well - you can live with that. If you don't because there isn't enough light you can just use a shorter focal length. :D

I thought HS meant "high sensitivity"....... Oh well, thanks for explaining :P

UPDATE: I know Gordon should be the one posting this (sorry!) but I'll let you know that the Canon SX50 HS review is out! Check it out here guys, I took the time to read it, and I'll have to say it's a great review. Good job :)

I am quite impressed about this camera... at least about the quality of its lens, it beats the Leica lens of the Panasonic!

It's pretty impressive, it really was hard for me to process it, I was like, wait... 24-1200mm? But the lens' quality will be pretty bad...... hold on, it isn't :|

Does anyone have an idea how to disable/turn off SX50 settings info on LCD display? It's annoying! I tried playing with menu settings but no go and the user manual does not say anything about it. Is that even possible at all?
Thanks in advance and happy holidays. :D
