anonymous
50
Slightly larger sensor
4.55 x 6.17 mm
vs
4.56 x 6.08 mm
1.26% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
anonymous
37
Marginally higher pixel density
350 ppi
vs
326 ppi
7.36% higher pixel density
anonymous
36
Has a flip-out screen
Yes
vs
No
Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.
anonymous
36
A tad higher resolution
784x588 px
vs
783x587 px
0.30% higher resolution
anonymous
32
Has a BSI sensor
Yes
vs
No
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
anonymous
32
Clearly greater zoom range
50 x
vs
24 x
26 x greater zoom range. The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
anonymous
31
Has a built-in focus motor
Yes
vs
No
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. With it built into the camera, you still have the function when using a lens without its own motor. This allows you to use a wider range of lenses.
anonymous
30
Shorter minimum focal length
24 mm
vs
25 mm
1 mm shorter minimum focal length. A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
anonymous
29
Has an electronic viewfinder
Yes
vs
No
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.
anonymous
28
Has manual exposure
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the exposure.
anonymous
28
Has manual shutter speed
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
anonymous
28
Clearly longer maximum focal length
1200 mm
vs
600 mm
600 mm longer maximum focal length. A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
anonymous
28
A little less body volume
1128.24 cm³
vs
1194.82 cm³
5.90% less body volume
anonymous
27
Has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Yes
vs
No
Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.
anonymous
15
Has a brand lens
Yes
vs
No
The lens is made by a reputable photographic equipment manufacturer, as opposed to a low-cost unbranded lens.
anonymous
15
A little bit thinner
105.5 mm
vs
110.2 mm
4.70 mm thinner
anonymous
14
Considerably shorter
87.3 mm
vs
125.2 mm
37.90 mm shorter

Top 15 Reasons for the

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200

Compared to Canon PowerShot SX50 HS

anonymous
53
Noticeably more focus points
23
vs
9
14 more focus points. The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
anonymous
44
Distinctly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
12 fps
vs
2.2 fps
5.45x faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
anonymous
40
Measurably faster maximum shutter speed
0.00005 s
vs
0.0005 s
10x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
anonymous
37
A shade lighter
588 g
vs
595 g
7 g lighter
anonymous
33
Supports AVCHD format
Yes
vs
No
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.
anonymous
33
Distinctly more microphone(s)
2
vs
1
1 more microphone(s). More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
anonymous
32
Has a microphone in
Yes
vs
No
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
anonymous
31
Has a built-in HDR mode
Yes
vs
No
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
anonymous
31
Can create panoramas in-camera
Yes
vs
No
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
anonymous
31
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
2.8
vs
3.4
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. This is the widest aperture available at the minimum focal length. With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
anonymous
30
Has an optical viewfinder
Yes
vs
No
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
anonymous
30
Modestly bigger screen size
3 "
vs
2.8 "
7.14% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
anonymous
29
Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yes
vs
No
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
anonymous
27
Sizably longer exposure time
60 s
vs
15 s
45 s longer exposure time. When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
anonymous
14
Vastly narrower
86.6 mm
vs
122.5 mm
35.90 mm narrower
