Am delighted with the quality of the photos and the ability to manipulate the settings. This is obviously a quality product which I know I will enjoy for many years to come.
As a proud owner of a classic Pentax S1 from new till it 'died', I was excited to read comparison reviews which rated the K30 as better value for money and giving greater definition than the 600D or D5200 so I had high expectations, in reality it has exceeded my expectations.
Its sensible size and easy to operate controls make it a joy to use - photo quality is excellent.
This camera is just amaizing. Eazy to use, quality pics and video. Love IT!
The 70D is my 5th Canon and 3rd Canon DSLR, and each has improved on the previous model. It took me (70 y o) a little time to work out the functions which are set out a little differently from my 550 but on top of it now and extremely happy with the photo quality. Coupled with a Canon 15-85 lens the whole kit is a little heavy but worth it for the results. I just wish it had retained the A-Dep feature which I loved!
As a long term user of Nikon equipment going back to FM2 this is a dream machine. I found it inviting me to use with no difficulty, Light in my hand and very responsive without being fiddly.. It takes dream pictures even at ISO 6400. My need of a flash is diminished. The HDR feature is extremely good. The preview screen could be larger; but that may effect the lightness that I want as a retiree who like taking travel pictures on the run.
I love this camera, so glad that i chose it. I didn't think that i would use the WIFi as much as i have but it is so easy to use and link to my iphone, awesome for traveling. The battery life is really good considering the use of taking pics and also WiFi. The camera is so simple to use and change settings, i am really happy with it. If i had to make a negative comment it would be that it is heavy, but im happy to lug it around considering the quality of the pictures that i get.
I have to also make a special mention of the superior service that we received from the guys at teds camera house, Maroochydore. They listened to what we wanted in a camera and were very helpful in helping us pick one out. After walking out of the Harvey Norman camera section in tears because i had been treated appallingly, it was such a nice experience shopping at teds.
So far I am very happy with my FZ70. The only set back so far has been some difficulty with a close close-up of a flower -- but that may be me rather than the camera. I have tried using the zoom to its full extent, which was very successful. I have shot some good videos. The panorama shots I have tried seem quite narrow but, again, that may be my fault. So far so good. I have no complaints but I am still learning to use this camera.
I have used this camera both in Australia and overseas and have found that overall it is the camera I shall always have with me even though I have the 60D and small compact ,I will always go to Teds for my camera supplies because of the knowledge and friendliness of staff
I reviewed dozens of camera option before purchasing. I selected the Cannon Powershot SX50 HS on brand, zoom, HD video capability & picture quality. On balance the SX50 was the best package. I've found the camera really easy to use, the dials and functions are intuitive and easy to get at. The zoom is awesome, I can photograph wildlife in great detail and clarity from a long way off, well before the animal gets spooked by my presence. I highly recommend the Cannon Powershot SX50 HS, I love it.
