Snapsort is a joke....do you try out the cameras or just look at the specs when making these comparisons???

Try this experiment. Take a pro photographer, send him to an assignment and don't let him use any other camera except that he choose either of the two, i.e., SX50HS or SL1000, according to their (cameras) capabilities. In this case, popularity would not be an issue.

The Canon is a highly rated camera. I don't think its junk. But the Fuji SL1000 and the Sony DSC HX300 are also good although I'd rate the Sony third because it doesn't shoot RAW. I rank the Fuji SL100 ahead of the Sony but you wont go wrong with any of them. It's a matter of preference. Sony is the most compact but its LCD display is inferior to the other two, and doesn't get high marks for low light. The Fuji SL1000 seems to have it all and picture quality is a tossup.

The Canon gets 90 points for popularity and the Fujitsu gets zero points for unknown information. What a farce!! Popularity is subjective and should not even be in included in an unbiased objective comparison. Take out popularity and the Fujitsu wins!! I have spent three days comparing super zooms and the Canon wins most of the discussions for a slightly higher picture quality however not in low light. The Fujitsu has many other better features and the difference in image quality is so minor as to not offset its advantages. Personally I like the more professional look, feel, and size of the Fujitsu. Musch easier to grip the Fujitsu firmly, and the price is amazing! I'm going with the Fujitsu SL1000.

i concur. Reviewers are always biased towards the bigger name brands. They always take the approach that they are comparing a Mercedes to a Volkswagen. It's always best to draw your own conclusions after you have thoroughly tested all the features and capabilities of the Fuji.

I find this review to be very inaccurate, not all the info was put in for the Fuji so its score was much lower and it was largely rated on popularity wich is unfair to the Fuji.

WHY DO YOU SAY IT IS A PIECE OF JUNK? ALL THE REVIEWS I HAVE READ SO FAR RATE IT WELL.
