Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Digital Camera Review$479.99
The full-sized hardware mode dial is a little too shallow for our tastes, but it does contain all the "PASM" shooting modes, as well as a few dedicated modes like Scene and Picture Effects, as well as two programmable custom modes.
25 total shooting resolutions are available, among 5 different aspect ratios, which are 16:9, 3:2, 4:3, 1:1, and 4:5. The reason this figure seems so high is because the SX50 offers RAW encoding in each aspect ratio, not just the native aspect ratio of the sensor. We're still not convinced RAW photography is worth the effort on such a tiny sensor, but the functionality is there if you really want it. JPEG compression may be set to Fine or Superfine.
