|The PowerShot SX60 HS was presented by Canon in October 2014. It is a Superzoom Digital Camera.|
In additional PowerShot SX60 HS has a Compact CMOS sensor with size of 6 x 5 mm² (0.24″ x 0.18″).
Also PowerShot SX60 HS’s image sensor has an effective resolution of around 16 megapixel. That’s roughly average and will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 or A2 size.
The Canon does not support recording RAW images. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computeand involves one extra processing step but will almost always result in superior image quality.
|Sensor area||6.17 x 4.55mm²
(0.24″ x 0.18″)
|Resolution (physical)||16.80 megapixel|
|Resolution (effective)||16.10 megapixel|
|Pixel size||1.42 µm²|
|Focal length (min)||21mm|
|Focal length (max)||1365mm|
The PowerShot SX60 HS uses an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 0.92 megapixel, close to the practical minimum for a viewfinder like this.
The magnifcation is c. 0.50x, an average value for an electronic viewfinder.
The PowerShot SX60 HS’s shutter speed varies from 1/2000s to 15s.
The highest shutter speed of the Canon is just 1/2000s. That’s no longer state of the art and may cause problems in challenging light conditions.
|Max. shutter speed||1/2000s|
|Min. shutter speed||15s|
The PowerShot SX60 HS’s sensitivity goes from 100 ISO und 3200 ISO, a very useful and practical range.
|Min. sensitivity||100 ISO|
|Max. sensitivity||3200 ISO|
The PowerShot SX60 HS supports all general exposure modes.
The Canon allows spot exposure for the difficult occasion.
|Auto Focus Properties|
The PowerShot SX60 HS’s auto focus processor uses 9 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. in low light).
Manual focus is also possible with the Canon, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.
The PowerShot SX60 HS has a built-in flash with a diapason of up to 6m (18 ft.). That range will fit for almost all occasion.
The PowerShot SX60 HS features a monitor with a diagonal of 75.00mm (3.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 0.92 megapixel. That’s about average.
The camera’s display is articulated, a plus for selfies and other challenging situations.
The PowerShot SX60 HS does not feature a touch screen.
