Canon has sharper pictures. You need to adjust a higher ISO and faster shutter to get sharp pictures. Canon has a very fast autofocus, so you are likely to get better shots with it. Check out the zoom test at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwa1ROV1ZYs
Camera is set to auto mode and it has no problem focusing at all.


Canon Powershot is all rounder. Great picture quality, good enough zoom for most practicle purpose, excellent video quality. Plus, it has a raw mode support, so you can get true 12 MP file with full color information. I like the camera very much. Canon has equally excellent macro and manual support. Camera build quality is also good. I am happy with it. I recently did a zoom test on one of trips with this camera. Its posted on you tube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwa1ROV1ZYs

Since wifi sd cards (eye-fi)are available i’m not too concerned about wifi feature , 60x optical is surely better than 50x optical zoom but after all how many photos will one take of the moon,most pictures will be taken indoors or family ,landscape in wide angle or portrait.I want to know which has faster autofocus ,the canon sx50 or the nikon p600 and which has better pictures in low lighting,which of these two camera has sharper pictures?
