cheap and cheerfull
being old and poor i dont want much. i was wondering how to use my phone with binos for zoom then remembered before phones i had a camera. this back in days of film.
now i am birding i still dont want much but here are the parameters.
fast reaction to trigger
easy zoom and focus
4 metres to 20 metres god focus so bird is half of frame and i can see feather details
good auto light response, many days here are dull
i dont mind a second hand compact if it has decent zoom and focus as above
seen on eBay less than 100 quid but so many models
i also saw 23 pound 4K ultra hd 16 megapixel sport cams but suspect these
my phone cam is 5mgp but crap. would a zoom attachment lense do enough to avoid digital zoom pixellation at the range i want?
which compact megapixel level is basis? 12? 16? less? dont need wifi etc
cheapest is essential, just reference for me. so what do i save for?

There are alternatives, but nothing else below Euro 250 or so. I understand your post as saying that you are starting with birding? In that case nailing birds in flight will probably not be your priority. For shooting (and identifying) perched birds in a distance of 20m or so, the SX50 is an excellent choice.
