Canon Powershot SX60 HS Camera

Canon Powershot SX60 HS Camera

This blog is about the Canon Powershot SX20 IS Camera. But it's an outdated, old camera so if you are someone who has stumbled here while looking for best super-zoom or bridge camera out there then you need to look at the latest versions.

Right now the best bridge camera in market is Canon Powershot SX60 HS Camera. This camera is light years ahead when you consider features and everything. SX20 was not a bad camera and it was the front runner in Bridge camera market in it's time but time has passed, a lot! 
Canon SX60 has 16 mega pixel CMOS sensor unlike the CCD sensor Canon SX20 has. This makes a big difference in photo quality. Now you can do raw format photos without using any third party software.

Also it comes in 65x optical zoom which is 3 times bigger than 20x zoom our SX20 has. If you are an owner of the old model I now how amazing photos when when first tried the 20x room. I have to say the 65x is several times better and mind blowing. Also zoom is faster and gives you better quality photos in low light conditions and even indoors. So if you want to upgrade your old Canon SX20 or Canon SX10 cameras, even your Canon SX30 then new model is the best choice you have unless you plan to get a DSLR.

Another Cool feature is SX60 uses Lithium-Ion NB-10L rechargeable battery unlike AA batteries those older models used. This is quite a big thing for users because these batteries last longer and also let you take lot more photos than AAs. You can take around 350 photos with a fully charged battery.

Also I should mention it can do 1080p HD video in MP4 format. It has many resolution options, 1920 x 1080 (60p, 30p), 1280 x 720 (30p), 640 x 480 (30p) etc.

This camera is little bit expensive but again all Canon bridge cameras are like that. It cost you around $480 at Amazon with free shipping. If you want you can go for one of those older Canon or Nikon DSLR cameras for same price. But DSLR cameras are not for everyone.  Canon SX60 IS is lot better for family  use. It's a simply a point and shoot camera which gives you make features of a DSLR and also photo quality.

Also Canon does have a new budget bridge camera range now. The latest model which is Canon SX530 cost you around $299 at Amazon. It also has a CMOS processor and 50x zoom. Lot smaller in size and lighter in weight.

There is older version which is SX520 which is only around $200. It also has a CMOS sensor and 42x zoom. So it's a pretty good option too if you have a really low budget.
