Featuring a far-reaching 65x optical zoom lens, equivalent to 21-1,365mm in the 35mm format, the PowerShot SX60 HS Digital Camera from Canon will provide users with a compact, yet extremely versatile unit for capturing highly detailed images. Additionally, this camera is capable of full HD 1080p video recording at 60 fps and has an external microphone input for higher quality audio. The SX60 also combines a 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 6 image processor to create the Canon HS SYSTEM, allowing for accurate colors and fine detail to be captured in low-light conditions.
The SX60 offers two methods for composing images and video, either through the bright 3.0" vari-angle LCD display or an electronic viewfinder. Each features a 922k-dot resolution and works with the Zoom Framing Assist function to help track and capture subjects while at the furthest telephoto focal lengths. There is also a High Speed AF that when paired with the 6.4 fps continuous shooting speed you will be able to record a plethora of sharp stills and video at full resolution.
Also packed into this camera is an Intelligent Image Stabilization system with eight different modes for getting the best possible image depending on the situation. And, in addition to all of the other features, the SX60 has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC for connecting to a compatible mobile device.
