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...

Canon SX60 Review

 

The Canon SX50 HS, released in late 2012, boasted an already impressive 50x zoom range and received not only a coveted Dave's Pick from us, but an even rarer 5.0 overall rating. The SX60 HS, debuting almost a full two years later, leapfrogs a few 60x...

There are a whole host of super-zooms in the market offering similar features and close to as much zoom range, so we decided to pit them head-to-head in our 2014 Best Superzoom shootout with 8 cameras all extending to 1200mm eq. zoom range or beyond,...

Canon PowerShot SX60 HS Review: One Amazing Ultrazoom

 

The PowerShot SX60 HS offers a near-perfect combination of killer features and pristine picture quality — what with its rich color, detailed image capture, superior autofocus and natural-feeling interface. The Nikon Coolpix P900 has longer zoom...

Crisp photos and especially video ; Surprisingly compact 65X zoom lens ; Great on-screen controls and overall handling ; Fair price ; Using advanced features like RAW capture and external-mic jack can boost quality

Limited low-light performance, especially for video

With one of the longest zoom lenses available and solid image and video quality, the PowerShot SX60 HS is the ultrazoom to get.

Canon SX60 HS review

 

The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS is the latest bridge super-zoom in the SX series. Launched in September 2014 it replaces the now two year-old (and enormously popular) SX50 HS. With an eye-watering 65x zoom, Canon has once again exceeded expectations and...

65x optical zoom lens ; 922k dot electronic viewfinder ; Second control dial ; Seek Assist auto feature ; Focus peaking ; Manual exposure in movie mode ; Built-in Wifi with NFC

No screen / EFV toggle button or sensor ; No in-camera HD slomo modes ; No touch screen

The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS is the company's latest DSLR-styled super-zoom. Two years on from the incredibly popular SX50 HS which it replaces, the SX60 HS extends the 50x zoom range to a whopping 65x - longer than any other bridge super zoom currently...

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...
