Fujifilm s4000 or Canon sx50 hs for birding (1 Viewer)


(Copied from Canon subform)
Greetings. This is my 1st question.
Recently picked up birding (april) and we are kinda hooked. We are looking at used cheap cameras. Budget is Paramount.
My partner has looked at and just purchased a used p530 for 80$ CAD. I am on the hunt as well. I found 2... a s4000 (80$ CAD) and a SX50 HS (190). I have looked ad nauseam at reviews and specs and positives and negative. What are your opinions? My parameters are just walking around and taking photos of rarities for my city and pics for identification. Winter Birding obviously, but the odd night photo and landscape. A DSLR is NOT an option. Nor is spending more than the 190$.

Thank you.
