Product Reviews
Canon PowerShot SX60 HS - digital camera is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use advanced features I’ve owned canons for 40 years had the roses with 3 lens bought this. I can be shooting while before I was selecting lens, remove, replace.......this fixed lens does it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Christmas gift My son gave me this camera for Christmas last year because he had one. Although the camera I got for Christmas had the flash feature go bad, I sent it to Canon to be repaired they just sent me a replacement. The camera I had took outstanding pictures and the zoom was out of this world (Moon and other distance shots) The shooting mode features are awesome! Best camera I've ever owned!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Have had for 3 years, was great, needs an upgrade I was thrilled with this when I bought 2 of them, one for me, one for my wife, over 3 years ago. It was great for its time. Now, the sensor is just horribly outdated. The video is still excellent. I love the feature that allows for double the optical zoom in video mode. But, the noise at ISO 1600 is comparable or worse than the noise from newer cameras at ISO 6400, even with the same sensor size. And, the viewfinder just can't track moving subjects with continuous photo shooting. Further, what was the top of the line zoom no longer is. It's time for Canon to take back this market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for zoom and macro Very nice bridge camera. When I first got it, I noticed the colors were not a vivid as my previous camera, but, actually, the Canon Powershot SX60HS renders natural color. I don't always like the auto mode, because the camera chooses where to focus, which is not always where I want to focus, so I often use the "P" mode, which gives me more control. For zoom photos, the camera is great. I've noticed that, even when I think the camera is a little shaky, I usually get a good photo (see moon photo). I attribute that to image stabilization. As well as zoom, the camera is very good for Macro. Usually, however, if I'm taking something like a flower, I stand about 5 feet away and zoom in. The detail is excellent. Overall, this camera is fairly easy to operate. It does have some modes, like "sleeping baby" that I find to be useless. Most of my pictures are of birds and landscapes, so it works well for that purpose. I bought a monopod for additional stability, but find that I don't need it most of the time. Another feature I really like is the pairing with a smart phone. I track location using and iPhone 6, then transfer the location information to the camera. That was an important feature in my decision to buy the camera. I typically use the viewfinder, but the flip out screen works well too, except in very sunny situations. I am pretty much of an amateur, but had no trouble learning to use the camera. If you are looking for a camera with a long zoom, macro capability and WIFI you will be happy with the Canon SX60HS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Wonderful Pictures and Video! I usually take either my 60D or 70D when I go on vacation, but since I had to travel light to Africa I bought the SX60HS. As you can imagine, there was a small learning curb to use this camera, but basically the knobs and futures were similar to my other cameras. I used a lot of the features on the camera and was not disappointed at all. The videos were great and taking pictures while using the video was a feature that I really liked. The lens reach was great, but there is a slight fuzziness when you get to 65 so I suggest you only take it to around 63. The camera is very comfortable to use and the buttons and dials conveniently placed. I did not use the WIFI feature because I wanted to download the pictures quickly to my computer when I got home and not learn how to use the WIFI feature first. I enlarged most of these pictures 8 1/2 x 11 and they the colors are crisp and pictures clear. You can judge for yourself after seeing my unedited pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy I bought this camera I bought this camera in Anchorage, Alaska. I had been traveling with my PowerShot S100, which is a great camera with not a lot of zoom. On my way to Anchorage I had missed several opportunities at some great wildlife photos because of the limited zoom. The SX60 HS has such a powerful zoom that I did not miss a shot the rest of my time in Alaska. The powerful zoom combined with the Image Stabilization let me take long shots without a tripod. I am very happy with my purchase and have recommended this camera to several friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, not Great! I've owned this camera for about 18 months and have used it in a very wide variety of conditions. In normal daylight conditions and not getting crazy on the zoom, even using the Auto setting, the camera takes very good pictures. I enjoy stretching the boundaries using Program shooting mode and get some great results. I have two areas that seem to continually give me issues. First is in low light conditions. Even using a wide variety of ISO settings the pictures always seem to be quite grainy and not what I expected when I bought this camera. Secondly the camera has great difficulty focusing on subjects when using zoom that is near the maximum optical zoom. The camera seems to focus on just about anything except the subject. When shooting these kind of pictures now, I find that I have much better luck using a tripod or even a monopod. Trying to shoot long zoom shots handheld always seem to be slightly out of focus. Needless to say this is not ideal and forces me to pack more gear than I would like.I'm going to give this camera one final test before I decide to sell it and get something better. The Total Solar Eclipse is coming across Oregon on August 21st. I plan on using a tripod and ND 100000 filter to be able to shoot all phases of the Eclipse. I hope these pictures come out well, if not, I will be selling this camera.I have owned 5 other Canon Digital Cameras and this one is by far and away the poorest performing Canon I've ever owned. In my review I will recommend this camera to a friend, but that's not a totally fair response. I wish there were another option like, Maybe, Maybe Not.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very frustrating It is true that this camera takes great quality pictures. However, actually acquiring pictures at all makes me want to bang my head on the nearest hard object... I like to zoom up on objects (i.e. Birds), but when I fill the view finder with an object, it automatically focuses on literally everything But that object (i.e. Leaves, the building 50 yds further away, etc...)!!Even when I do get it to focus on my object, 1 of 2 things happens. Either I hit the capture button and it takes the object OUT of focus right before acquiring the image, or, my favorite, I hit the button, ...hold it down, ...press harder... NOTHING!!! Just does not respond to the fact that I am telling it I want it to take a picture!!! So bizarre!
