Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

Built with a powerful sensor, intelligent features and a mighty zoom, the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Bridge Camera offers premium photography, high definition video and loads of fun!

Sharp shooting

This compact camera is powered by a sensitive CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5 image processor, capturing low noise images in a high quality 12.1 megapixel resolution. An intelligent image stabilisation works to ensure each shot is sharp, clear and detailed. The IS counteracts shakes and blur - so the subject is shot as it's seen.

Equipped with an ultra wide-angle zoom lens the Canon SX50 is capable of capturing exceptional photos from a huge range, from stunning long range and close ups to vast landscapes! The ultra sonic motor also works to zoom in complete silence.

Camera control

A 2.8” vari-angle PureColor II VA LCD screen displays images and captured shots in vivid form, the vari-angle display can be moved for a more comfortable viewing or shooting.

With enhanced zoom framing assist the camera can track a distant subject without compromising on the focus. The lock button engages the IS system to keep the subject static, even at full zoom.

More shooting options

It's not just photos you can take, with video recording you can capture moments in full high definition. Shoot superb footage with stereo sound and full use of the optical zoom, plug it into a HDTV and enjoy high quality playback!

A high-speed burst function snaps fast-moving action, capturing a bust of images at 13 shots a second, so the running, flying or brief subject is never out of reach.

Buy yourself some more memory

It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

Take full advantage of the array of shooting modes on the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Bridge Camera and capture moments with optimum results, every time!
