We sold a lot of the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS cameras earlier this year - they were at a very good price and people flocked in to get them. We trust those customers are off enjoying their purchases right now - taking the camera out for wildflowers, tourist landscapes, and family pictures.
Well, the SX 50 HS is replaced with the Canon PowerShot SX 60 HS and the fun carries on - but with even more range. You see the lens has a greater pulling power - a full 65X zoom range. In addition there is very capable HD video shooting and deliberate provision for steady shooting while recording.
In even more respects this is the camera of choice for many of our clients who are going to go on African or Canadian adventure tours. The thing that they like to do, besides shop for cheap booze in the duty-free shops, is to see the wild and savage animals; the lions and elephants in Africa and the Edmontonians and Newfoundlanders in Canada. SOme venture to Alaska to see grizzly bears but really this is somewhat of an extravagance as the same grizzling can be seen round our house early on Sunday mornings and we're in Bull Creek...
Never mind. The Canon is a great camera for long-distance shooting combined with landscape capability. It's easier to haul than a DSLR and for the average web or A4 shooter in decent light it will be perfect. As it fires the files off to a tablet with wifi, you need not take cumbersome external drives or things on the plane with you. Save weight - more space in the luggage for warm clothing and brandy.
