Each features a 922k-dot resolution and works with the Zoom Framing Assist function to help track and capture subjects while at the furthest telephoto focal lengths. There is also a High Speed AF that when paired with the 6.4 fps continuous shooting speed you will be able to record a plethora of sharp stills and video at full resolution.

Canon SX60 HS reviews

PowerShot SX60 HS Digital Camera is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 165.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from POWERSHOT SX60 HS I love my POWERSHOT SX60 HS. For a point and shot camera it's great. The only thing is that if your going to use the full zoom which is a 35mm equivalent to 1365 make sure you use a steady tripod for best shot. Camera will have a harder time focusing if you don't because of the distance of the zoom. Since I received this camera last spring I have taken over 9000 pictures and videos with it and have enjoyed every minute. I also use 32 gb SD cards but considering trying 64 gb since I just fulled up my last card again. I would recommend this camera to someone that likes to play with settings but does not want to get into a SLR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes GREAT pictures I am a semi-serious photographer, having graduated to entering my photos (mostly nature) in shows and having them accepted. I have had three "pro" photographers and fellow lens-lugging camera club members say, "You shot that [the picture] with THAT [camera]?" They are amazed. Super-sharp photos, large range of capability - RAW, aperture and shutter priority. Have even gotten some great shots (a photo of the day on a national nature website) with its macro feature. If you do not want to be toting and changing lenses, seriously consider this camera. Just be sure to get down the major features, just like you would on a DSLR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SX-60 Excellent Camera I purchased this a couple days ago not based on the reviews for sure. Seems common sense is not so common anymore. 1. long range shooting you need a tripod not just for this camera for any camera. 2. it's not the greatest in low light however you can use the flash. 3. It's a great deal for what you get in terms of picture quality. I can only compare to SX-30 I used for 3 years for pictures and family/Youtube Videos and I am happy to announce this is a huge improvement. If you are looking for a really good camera at a decent price sx-60 is for you. forget about the bad reviews it like saying a Iphone 4 is better than the Iphone 6? Really?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally love this camera I've had the SX60 for more than two years. I've taken tens of thousands of images with it. I love everything about this camera. The zoom for taking photos of birds, the moon, wildlife and many other things. I love the burst feature that allows me to take multiple photos in a short time. My home looks a gallery of my photos. I've enlarged many of them to as big as 30x40 inches. I'm not a professional photographer but I'm in many Facebook photo groups. My photos are often chosen for the daily collages, header photo, etc. I know that my photos are competing with other photographers whose cameras/lenses cost ten times what mine did. For my purpose the SX60 is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever I certainly consider myself to be amateur but I have owned numerous cameras in my lifetime. Also owned a cannon power shot prior to the purchase of this camera. I could not be more satisfied with the simplicity and great pictures produced by this camera. The 65 x zoom is simply awesome! For the person who does not know a lot about camera or photography generally and wants to have a camera that is very easy to learn and shoots extremely easy with professional results, this is the camera for you. I simply love it. I introduced this camera to a friend and he bought one and feels the same way!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Worthy of Its Name I had owned the SX40--loved it, the SX50--loved it even more and now I own the SX60--dislike it. The first SX60 I ordered worked for awhile and then quit focusing all together. I returned it to B&H and they promptly sent me another one. And that one has trouble focusing--sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. But the annoying problem I have with this camera is its poor stabilizer. The SX50 took clear photos even with a little shake while shooting. Not so with my SX60. Just a little shake while using the zoom and I get blur. I sold my SX50 to a friend. Now, do I buy another SX50 or wait until the newer model is released? Such quandaries.
Date published: 2015-08-29
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Specs Poor Image Quality I bought this camera because I was really impressed by the specs and the 65x optical zoom and I needed a compact camera for wildlife photography. I was really disappointed by the image quality. The images are not sharp and they seem that they were taken using a 10yr old cheap 5MP camera. I tried using a tripod, shooting RAW (and edit on photoshop) but I gave up. The specs are great but the camera does not deliver. Poor low light performance and slow focus at the high focal end. My Canon G16 takes way better photos. I even called Canon and complained about the SX60. I finally sold it. The SX50 is a much better (and cheaper) camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC QUALITY & FEATURES, AN ALL IN ONE DESIGN FROM MACRO,TO WIDE ANGLE of 21mm, TO 65x OPTICAL ZOOM to 260 DIGITAL ZOOM,THIS CAMERA DOES IT ALL SEAMLESSLY INCLUDING HI- DEFINITION VIDEO! DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON SEPARATE LENSES, THIS BABY DOES IT ALL WITHOUT HAVING TO CHANGE LENSES AND LOSE AN IMPORTANT SHOT!! SEE CRATERS ON THE MOON, OR ENLARGE A DIME TO FULL FRAME.....I STARTED IN 1976 WITH A NIKON FILM CAMERA, GRADUATED TO A CANON 90, THEN TO A PENTAX 6X7, MEDIUM FORMAT THEN ON TO 4X5 VIEW CAMERA, TAKE MY WORD ON THIS, IT IS ALL YOU NEED IN ONE COMPACT DYNAMITE CAMERA!........
