I posted moon pics with and without tripod but tripod is good for lower ISO and more detail. Image stabilizer is in play for sure.

This looks like an awesome camera. Any of you using it know of it's capabilities in low light settings with slower shutter speeds? One application I would like to use it for would be photographing aurora.

Not sure if the sunset photo below counts for low light, or low enough. Here's a bird I got this morning w the SX50 handheld. Photo has not been modified.

From this morning with the SX50 - pretty low light dark day and zoomed over the 50x point and handheld.

Got mine in the mail last Friday. have tried a few shots. Like the reviews say the eyepiece is not good but the screen is. So far I like what I see, it may take a while to learn how to use it . The 1200 is stretching it a bit but 800 or so might be real good.

Riley, yes!

I'm having a hard time figuring out the manual focus, I just can't see it in the eyepiece or screen.
I'm starting to learn how to use a bunch of the other features though. This camera has a lot going on.

Nice! John, although the eyepiece is not as sharp as the screen, I find it easier to follow and find things with the eyepiece when things are rushed because it's more intuitive - but that's just me. Dee, I haven't even touched manual focus yet! I did take a movie of a Heron though, and the camera concentrated on the background - just need to set a different type auto-focus.

I was photographing 2 eagles when they decided to mate - or try to. This was in the Methow Valley, Washington this week. 1st shot was about 100x. Other 3 were with 50x hand held. I ended up missing some of the action while I fumbled with the camera. I threw in one of Goat Wall up in Mazama too. And then one with the upper headwall above the skier zoomed in on.
