65x Optical Zoom (21-1365mm) Wide-Angle Lens with Optical Image Stabilizer for outstanding optical performance and versatility for both close-ups and wide shots
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. The DIGIC 6 Image Processor also enhances the performance capabilities of the PowerShot SX60 HS , powering full resolution high-speed continuous stills shooting. And video recording is better than ever, as the DIGIC 6 Image Processor enables Full HD at 60p, as well as MP4 recording. Highly compressed MP4 video not only preserves space on your memory card but also improves playback on mobile devices.
Canon HS SYSTEM
The PowerShot SX60 HS camera gives you the power to create images with spectacular depth, detail and emotional resonance. The 16.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor works in concert with Canon’s latest-generation DIGIC 6 Image Processor to create the Canon HS SYSTEM. With the Canon HS SYSTEM, you’ll experience excellent tracking performance even in low light, and achieve gorgeous still image quality even at high ISO speeds all the way up to ISO 3200; beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you use higher shutter speeds to capture clearer images with reduced noise and blur in a variety of situations for incredible photos, even when shooting video.
The PowerShot SX60 HS lets you shoot in RAW mode, which records all the information captured by the sensor, giving you outstanding flexibility and complete creative control when editing your images with Canon’s powerful software. The camera also allows you to record in RAW and JPEG formats simultaneously. Now, in RAW mode, you can even select among several aspect ratios, including 16:9, 3:2, 4:3, 1:1 and 4:5.
1080p Full HD Video and External Microphone Support
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. The camera’s powerful zoom is equipped with Canon’s precision-engineered Ultrasonic Motor (USM) and Voice Coil Motor (VCM) for fast, silent zooming and focus that won’t interfere with audio capture. Advanced videographers will appreciate the camera’s Manual movie mode that lets you adjust aperture and shutter speeds, and ISO speed either before or during video capture for enhanced creative control. The PowerShot SX60 HS also records video in the Apple iFrame® format, a computer-friendly standard that speeds up importing and editing of videos. It keeps file sizes small, so uploading and emailing high-quality video is quick and easy. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video applications, so you won’t have to make time-consuming conversions that can degrade quality.
Built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) for easier connectivity
The PowerShot SX60 HS camera supports NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, eliminating the need to manually find and open the Canon Camera Connect app on your mobile device. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android™ device, and the Camera Connect 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® makes sharing quick and easy
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.
