question

does it have a view finder?
Asked by: Robert
Yes it does. So many cameras now only have the screen and you cannot see what you are shooting. I love this camera.

question

What is the biggest SD card I can use with this camera?
Asked by: Amy K.
Sorry, I cannot help you. I returned the camera as it was too bulky for me to carry on horseback, which was the reason I bought it. I will give a general answer, however. I shoot Canon and I have made it a practice to have more than one SD (etc) cards in my gear. Since I do not shoot video, I prefer several smaller capacity cards (16 or 32 GB). I use this system as a sort of organizing method - mark each for the day or subject. I know that does not answer you question - sorry.

question

can this camera do time-lapse or allow a plugin- 3rd party time-lapse controller?
Asked by: Wolf L.
Yes. A cheap controller is the Vello shutter Boss 11 timer remote switch for about $50. It fits the Canon powershot SX60 which has a sub-mini connection. I bought this camera as a back up camera for my 5D mark 11 and have plans for buying a Gigapan Robotic camera mount to do some awesome scenics

question

Can both the Filter Adapter and the Lens hood be installed at the same time?
Asked by: Robert K.
Unfortunately no, the FA-DC67A Filter Adapter and LH-DC90 Lens Hood use the same bayonet mount and would not be able to attach at the same time.
