Also 12.1 MP High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor with DIGIC 5 Image Processor makes it perfect. People were complaining about CCD sensor in early models like Canon SX10 and Canon SX20. Canon SX50 HS has all of it. Anthor new feature is High-speed Burst HQ for a maximum of 10 frames. Shouldn't forget 1080p Full HD Video feature with a dedicated movie button.
