The Intelligent Stabilizer feature ensures crisp, brilliant images at any zoom length.

An enhanced Zoom Framing Assist Seek and Lock buttons help you track and capture subjects for sharp super telephoto photography, and the new High Speed AF dramatically reduces lag time so you'll never miss a shot.
Zoom Framing Assist Seek and Lock
At maximum telephoto, it can be challenging to track a moving subject hence Zoom Framing Assist feature makes it much easier to use the camera's powerful zoom lens. When you press and hold the Zoom Framing Assist Seek button, the camera will automatically zoom out to include a wider angle of view, enabling you to more easily locate your moving subject. Once you find it, release the Seek button to return to its original zoom position. You may depress the Zoom Framing Assist Lock button to keep the subject in focus for that perfect close-up capture.
Intelligent IS (Image Stabilizer)
The camera automatically selects the optimum IS for all situations allowing users to capture crystal-clear, picture-perfect moments whether if they are capturing photographs or video. The Intelligent IS eliminates shake by analyzing the motion of both the camera and subject, and identifies the shot type such as panning, macro or telephoto shot.
The PowerShot SX50 HS is equipped with Canon's latest advancements in Autofocus (AF) technology. Canon's newly developed AF achieves a significant increase in speed, for a shooting experience that's spontaneous and natural. The remarkably responsive High Speed AF lets you capture up to 13 fps at full resolution with reduced lag time.
