- 65x Optical Zoom (21–1365mm) Wide-Angle Lens With Optical Image Stabilizer
Imagine having the power to capture animals in the wild from a safe distance, shoot architectural details atop a skyscraper, and see the expression on an athlete's face from up in the stands – all from a compact camera with a built-in lens. Lightweight with superb controllability, the 65x Optical Zoom lens on the PowerShot SX60 HS camera is a marvel of optical engineering; but it's also a Genuine Canon Lens, which means that the images you capture with it will be beautifully natural and true to life – whether you're shooting at the wide angle or extreme telephoto end.
- 16.1 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor
The PowerShot SX60 HS camera employs a 16.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor. Utilizing a sophisticated light-capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for improved high ISO capture with reduced noise. It is also a high-speed design, capable of rapidly capturing and moving image data to the processor, enabling faster continuous shooting and faster autofocus.
- Canon DIGIC 6 Image Processor
The PowerShot SX60 HS camera is equipped with the very latest Canon proprietary processor, the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which makes several important advancements to image quality both in stills and video. Improved light sensitivity allows for higher resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions, and Dynamic IS now detects and compensates for tilt and parallel movement (shift blur) to create video that's exceptionally free of distortion.
- 1080p Full HD Video and External
With the PowerShot SX60 HS camera, you'll preserve memories and creative film clips in beautifully realistic 1080p Full HD Video at 60 frames per second. The quality is especially apparent when you play back your video on a large-screen HDTV via the camera's HDMI output. Simply press the dedicated Movie button to begin recording. And now for the first time on a PowerShot model, a new input allows you to attach an optional external microphone (Ø3.5mm) for serious audio recording to match the high-quality video you'll capture.
- Built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC
The PowerShot SX60 HS camera supports NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, eliminating the need to manually find and open the Canon CameraWindow app* on your mobile device. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android™ device**, and the CameraWindow app will launch automatically for quick, easy sharing of your images. Built-in NFC technology also makes it simpler to install the app. If the app hasn't been installed yet, once you touch the devices together for the first time, the download screen will display automatically.
- Built-in Wi-Fi®
The PowerShot SX60 HS camera is equipped with built-in Wi-Fi® technology for on-the-go convenience when you want to share your photos and videos with friends, family and the whole world. Easily post your images to social networking and media sites – Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube™, Flickr®, and Google Drive™ – through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# directly from your PowerShot camera, or save them to the online photo album to share anytime, anywhere.
- Intelligent IS
It's easy to capture clear, steady images with the PowerShot SX60 HS camera, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because the camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation – allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes. New icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you're shooting still images or video.
- Zoom Framing Assist and Zoom Memory
Its 65x Optical Zoom lens gives the PowerShot SX60 HS camera the ability to capture subjects at great distances, but because it can be challenging to track a moving subject at maximum telephoto, the camera includes sophisticated technology to help you get the most from the camera's powerful zoom while simply enjoying shooting. When you press and hold the Zoom Framing Assist button, the camera will zoom out to include a wider angle of view, enabling you to more easily locate your moving subject. Once you find it, releasing the button will cause the lens to return to its original zoom position, intelligently keeping the subject in focus until you're ready to shoot and capture the perfect close-up moment.
- High Speed AF
The PowerShot SX60 HS camera is equipped with Canon's remarkably responsive High Speed AF. This High Speed AF technology achieves an increase in speed for quicker start up and a shooting experience that's spontaneous and natural. And a speedier AF means it's possible to photograph fast-moving subjects, which complements the PowerShot SX60 HS's High-Speed Burst HQ mode. You'll capture great shots as they happen – frame by frame – with reduced lag time.
- Bright 3.0” Vari-Angle LCD
The PowerShot SX60 HS camera gives you lots of ways to frame a great shot. The bright 3.0” Vari-angle LCD has excellent resolution (approximately 922,000 dots), and flips out and swivels/rotates for shooting at unusual angles, even letting you capture perfectly framed self-portraits. The camera also has an Electronic Viewfinder (approximately 922,000 dots) to easily see subjects when using the camera in very bright sunlight, or preventing camera shake by holding it steadily.
