Canon PowerShot SX60 HS

 

65x zoom... but it's all lens and no trousers

Massive zoom range ; Decent handling ; Robust build

Slow lens ; No EVF proximity sensor ; Limited image quality

Also, the maximum aperture of the Canon SX60 HS is just f/3.5-6.5. It’s quite slow, and both the cheaper Panasonic and Fujifilm rivals are faster, with f/2.8 maximum apertures. We’ll get onto the focusing and image quality effects of this later. But in...

Canon PowerShot SX60 HS review: To the zoom and back

 

The superzoom market keeps on growing, quite literally, with the latest Canon PowerShot SX60 HS boasting a gigantic 65x optical zoom lens. That's far more heavyweight than any competitor on the market, so if it's zoom you want, it's zoom you get....

Good optical image stabilisation, vari-angle LCD, image quality at middle zoom is good for its category

Problems with focus and general handling at the full zoom extension, competition from higher-end superzooms

There's a lot to admire about the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS. It takes what has always been successful about this companies superzooms and pushes it up a notch.

Canon PowerShot SX60 HS review

 

The perfect travelling companion

Market-leading 65x zoom range ; Full manual control and raw files ; Wi-Fi and NFC built in

As big as an entry-level D-SLR ; No eye sensor on the viewfinder ; Lacks touch-screen control

With a 65x optical zoom, raw format shooting, inbuilt Wi-Fi and NFC, this is a well equipped bridge camera with a lot to offer the enthusiast.

The massive zoom is just one of the Canon SX60 HS's strengths, but it struggles in low light.

A whopping 65x optical zoom and a fold-out rear screen make the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS an attractive option for those looking to buy a bridge camera. But do its image quality and range of features qualify this superzoom bridge camera for a Best Buy?...

Canon Powershot SX60 HS Review

 

Read our full review of the new Canon Powershot SX60 HS with a massive 65x optical zoom lens, and built in Wi-Fi!

Good colour ; Great 3 inch tilting screen ; 65x optical zoom lens ; 6.2fps continuous JPEG shooting ; 450 shots in Eco mode ; Wi-Fi / NFC connectivity ; Flash hot-shoe ; 0cm macro ; Manual controls and raw shooting ; Electronic level ; Quick focus

No built in automatic panoramic mode ; My colour / dynamic range options not available when shooting raw ; Price

The Canon Powershot SX60 HS lays claim to one of the largest optical zoom lenses in any ultra zoom bridge camera. With a 65x optical zoom lens, the camera offers an almost ridiculous level of optical zoom starting at an ultra-wide 21mm zooming to...

Canon PowerShot SX60 HS review

 

In September 2012, Canon launched the PowerShot SX50 HS , a bridge camera with a 50x, f3.4-6.5, 24-1,200mm zoom lens -- an unheard of zoom range at the time.

The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS is an all-around excellent bridge camera with a competitive zoom range, features that make it easier to use and make use of the lens and solid photo and video quality for its class.

Like most cameras in this category, the SX60 can be slow to lock focus when fully zoomed in under certain conditions. Switching between the viewfinder and display is still frustrating and there's no proximity sensor to automatically trigger the change...

Canon's PowerShot SX60 HS is one of the top bridge cameras in its class thanks to improved design, useful features, excellent photos and video and -- of course -- its really wide and really long lens.

Canon PowerShot SX60 HS

 

The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS has a lens that covers an extreme zoom range, and even though it's on the pricey side, it earns our Editors' Choice award.

65x zoom lens. 21mm wide-angle coverage. Sharp vari-angle LCD. Integrated EVF and hot shoe. 6.3fps continuous shooting. Great control layout. Framing assist function. Raw shooting support. Wi-Fi. 1080p60 video. Mic input.

Pricey. Lacks EVF eye sensor.

Finally, remote control from your phone or tablet is possible. Controls are limited—you can zoom the lens, set the self-timer, control the flash ouput, and fire the shutter, but that's it. There's no way to select a focus point, or to control other...
