Nigel, Loughborough Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Having used or owned most of the bridge cameras available during 2014/15 I can say that this camera although now superseded by the Canon SX60 HS is by far the best camera for outright image quality nothing else comes near it, images are very clean at 80/100 iso and are still usable upto 800 iso, the image stabliser is excellent as is the focusing. Other cameras may have longer zooms but its not much good if they then can not deliver a clean (low noise) detailed image.
Bad points:
Build could be better but saying that it is not bad and is more than acceptable, the evf is nothing to shout about other cameras have much better ones but it is usable and you do get used to it, I think it comes down to what you want and although some cameras may have better build and evf's I would rather have high quality images any day of the week and the SX50 HS can give these time after time.
