Answer:
I have found no noticeable degradation with a Hoya UV filter and it keeps dust, salt, etc. off the lens. More information is available on http://techexperience.net/go/canon/

Answer:
This comes with a battery and charger. As always, Canon recommends a full charge before you use the camera. Please note that a partial re-charge on the battery reduces battery life, so start with a full charge. It's worth the wait.

They are both great cameras it really depends on what you want. We actually purchased this camera in addition to a Cannon Rebel T4.

We actually purchased this camera in addition to a Cannon Rebel T4. We cruise quite a bit and when going off ship to take the Rebel T4 have quite a big carring case to take the different lenses and with this Cannon powershot SX50 you have one camera dont even need to take a case can just carry it. Also if you are looking for a great zoom this is the best one we have found for the price you would be able to get a lens for the Rebel T3 that would have the same zoom but it would be very expensive. For example we took a picture of the moon with the SX50 and you can see the craters and took pictures of a plane in flight that all you could see with the eye was a white streak in the sky and after going full zoom you can almost read the writing on the airplane. So I would say both are great cameras just depends what you are looking for. see less They are both great cameras it really depends on what you want.

Answer:
Like you, I have to wear sunglasses with my prescription in them. I have always had a problem looking at the LCD screens with my sunglasses on. What I do, is take my sunglasses off, and rely on the EVF. I am lost without it, especially with my vision. I think I get better photos that way.

Answer:
Not a bundle purchase, and don't buy a bundle purchase if it includes a mini-tripod with flexible legs. These tripods are flimsy, will tip over in the slightest breeze and fall off the object that you put it on. There goes your $500 camera. Stay away from bundles except to see flimsy examples of what you really need -… see more Not a bundle purchase, and don't buy a bundle purchase if it includes a mini-tripod with flexible legs.

Stay away from bundles except to see flimsy examples of what you really need - a good tripod, a good SDHC or SDXC memory card (like SanDisk,) a good lens cleaning kit (LensPen works very well, (get 2) use one for the LCD and a second one for the lens,) and a good carrying case by a name brand like Lowepro or Case Logic. see less Not a bundle purchase, and don't buy a bundle purchase if it includes a mini-tripod with flexible legs.

Answer:
The camera uses it's own rechargeable battery. Battery life has been really good for me, which is a surprise because most that come with their own batteries tend to die quickly. Of course, I do shoot quite a bit thru the viewfinder. I also purchased some off-brand replacement batteries for spare swaps off Amazon and… see more The camera uses it's own rechargeable battery.

Answer:
QUALITY.
Raw Image Format.....if it is a format....about 10 times as good as the best Jpeg.
Long lens, quick focusing. Sound of the lense when it is focused which means a person doesn't necessarily have to see what's in focus he or she can hear it. Very handy in some situations.… see more

Heavy enough to "Feel" like a quality camera.
Pictures by others showed the quality of the results.
I could send some recent pics to show what I mean.
Good Low Light ...available light....quality. I'm not good at using the speed light and I always have felt that it is "Fake" I'd rather shoot available light to get the "Real" quality I want.
Just a really good camera. The Viewing screen is very versitile as well. Low level shot can be very impressive and the flexible LCD screen allows that.
Isolation of the subject useing the long lense. Quality of the x200 Digital setting is quite good in my opinion and can be manipulated easily .
I've had 2 Nikon Photomic cameras and still have my original 1958 Asahi Pentax. All very good cmeras. The canon is right there with them
My Photography depends on what I see and feel when I shoot a picture not the technical excellence. An 11 x 14 view cameras has that but you can't get the "true Feeling" of a photograph with it.
I have samples I can send if your interested. There are a lot of pics taken by other people with the Canon and they show what it can do.
Hope this helps. see less
