Great camera for someone not want a DSLR|Posted .
I am an "advanced" amateur photographer. I originally used a Canon 35mm and carried extra lenses, filters, flash attachment, etc. At one point, when digital cameras got better, I was over carrying huge bags and weight around. This camera gives me all the creative features I require - all settings can be done manually or automatically. It's got a huge long lens (21mm-1365mm - 35mm equivalent). It's very fast! The only extra items I carry are extra batteries and SD cards. While my friends are busy changing lenses to get that far away bird, I just touch my zoom button! There is a learning curve as there is with any camera, but if someone wants to go totally auto, it's as easy as any camera. It's a little heavy for me, but I'm assured of great quality pictures, close up or far away. I haven't used it for much low light high ISO shots yet, but if it's anything like the SX50 I had previously, I'm not worried. It also has WiFi, which I figured out and tried, but I'm not an expert on yet. I'm very glad I have my Canon SX60!I would recommend this to a friend

Great Cross Over Camera|Posted .
This is a great cross over camera. It is fine as a point and shoot, but it is much more powerful than that. It is not small, but I can carry it comfortably in a handbag. It is not a replacement for a DLSR - the aperture range is small, the sensor is small (so low light not as good), and you cannot change lenses (although the zoom is VERY impressive). It does have many of the features that make DLSR cameras attractive - shooting mode control, ability to shoot in RAW and/or JPEG, exposure compensation, good multi-frame firing rate, good video (including slow motion), a hot shoe, and many more. I tried to upload a RAW file, but it crashed the website. So here are an example of the macro (the lens is less than an inch from the page), and example of a low light picture at 1600. The macro is edited, but the low light is straight from the camera. Compared to the RAW version, the picture is cropped in (to about 80% of full size), a phenomenon I did not see in photos taken at lower ISOs. Also, the grain in the RAW file is finer (not as blurry as in the JPEG). It's been said that the best camera is the one you have with you, and this camera is easy to take along! I love my Canon 7D, but on trips with family, going to Disneyland, or family shots at home this is the camera I grab.I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent CameraPosted .
I wanted a super zoom camera for bird and wildlife photography. I looked at panasonic, Nikon, Fuji, and i chose the Canon SX60 because it had the best features for the money. The photo quality and image stabilization are excellent. Camera is small and lightweight. Battery life is excellent. I shot 482 photos and 8 minutes of video on a fully charged battery. I shoot in the PROGRAM mode because i like to set my own parameters. I like vivid colors so i set the "My Colors" feature to VIVID, +1 Contrast, +1 Saturation and +2 Sharpness and my JPEG photos look great. I do not shoot RAW. The 1080P videos look great. LCD screen is bright and sharp. The viewfinder is OK, i mainly use the LCD. Noise is low up to ISO800. See my photo samples.I would recommend this to a friend

Good for on the go|Posted .
I'm a professional photographer but was looking for a decent point-and-shoot to travel abroad with so I didn't have to worry about lugging around a big camera and subsequent lenses. This Canon does the trick. It's light and produces crisp pics. I also appreciate that it takes great video that can be replayed in slow motion. Is helpful since I run a gymnastics camp and am able to slow down tumbling passes to show students their body position. So while you don't get the same quality or bokeh as a full frame professional camera, this one is good on the go.I would recommend this to a friend

Great camera for a beginner|Posted .
Great beginners camera. Zoom lens is fantastic! Took a photo of the moon without a tripod and it turned out excellent. It's so easy to use with the auto settings, I haven't experimented much with the other settings. Easy to use and battery lasts a really long time. Having built-in wifi is wonderful . I can operated the camera from my phone or iPad.I would recommend this to a friend

Good point and shoot camera.Posted .
This is a good camera, have it for two weeks now, an so far: Some good things are: -Very long zoom, able to see craters in the moon (see picture). -Many manual controls. -Ability to shoot from phone, or send images to wifi enable devices (phone or tablet). -Good quality pictures. -Nice hand grip. -Mic input Some not so good things are: -No ISO button, and can't assign it to the programmable button, have to dive into the menu options. -Poor low light video performance, too much noise at high ISO settings. -If your shooting video and press the shutter button to take a still, the video will stop recording, and you have to press the shutter again to take the photo. If you own a SX50, right now I think there's no need to upgrade, even the SX40 had a ISO dedicated button and a better lens aperture (2.7 vs. 3.4), but then again this is a longer lens. If you're looking for a little more zoom, wifi features (remote shooting and photo transfer), and the new DIGIC 6 processor, and/or want the latest, then go ahead this is the camera for you. This is just the humble opinion of a casual shooter. I'll try to post some updates when I get to use it more.I would recommend this to a friend

Canon PowerShot|Posted .
Bought this camera so that I could take somewhat long range photos as I will be going on vacation nad plan to take pictures of wildlife at a distance. Have not gotten the opportunity for that purpose but while practicing beforehand I am truly amazed at the range of the photos I have gotten so far. Have taken some of the moon that I am amazed how great they came out. Definitely so far love this camera.I would recommend this to a friend

Love the zoom|Posted .
I bought this camera based on recommendations I read online. I was going to Costa Rica and wanted to be able to really zoom in on the wildlife. I was able to do that! It takes a quality picture thanks to the digital zoom. One thing to note is that it can be hard to hold the camera steady when you are zoomed way out. It can sometimes be a bit difficult to get the focus on the subject from far away. All of this can be resolved with a bit of practice using the camera.I would recommend this to a friend
Asked by larry.
- A:Answer Yes it can, however I would strongly suggest a tri-pod for long zoom shots. Beyond 35x zoom it becomes nearly impossible to hold the camera still enough to focus. When I'm using this camera for long range zoom I always have a Monopod which helps a great deal and is much easier to carry arround than a tri-pod.

Q: QuestionWhat is the best memory CardWhat are the compatible and best memory cards for this camera? I see that there are 95mb/sec cards by Sandisk. Are they compatible? is 64 GB enough for a casual user for touring, birding with short videos?
Asked by Mitch.
- A:Answer 64GB should be an ample amount of storage for casual use as you listed. We do a lot of touring and birding as you mentioned. We use two cameras. One is the SX60 and the other is a Canon T3i. The SX60 is probably used 2-3 times as much as the T3i. Some weeks we may take as many as 2,000+ pics. We use two different "Scandisk" cards. One is an 80mb/sec and the other is a 48mb/sec 32GB. We have used these cards for 6 months or so in both cameras and haven't encountered any problems. There was a high speed card available but our Best Buy associate said he didn't recommend it with our cameras. Hope this helps.

Asked by PlayItAgain.
- A:Answer Yes. It depends on your purpose of recording. If you are recording it for personal purposes, then you can do it with what you have in this camera. If you are doing it for professional purposes, you should use external mic for better audio recording.

Q: QuestionYour website says '65x optical/65x digital/4225x total zoom' But I checked in Canon website it says 4x Digital Zoom for this camera. I am confused now.
Asked by Ganesh.
- A:Answer Digital zoom is basically the computer in the camera zooming in. You lose a lot of quality. This cam has a 65x or 1350mm lens. You don't need the digital zoom. I bought the camera and immediately disabled the digital.
