Canon SX60 Camera is Launched

Canon SX60 Camera is Launched

Canon Powershot SX60 is a camera which should have released in last year but for some reason Canon decided not to do that. They waited another year to release it and now finally it's in market. Well I'm little bit disappointed when I read specifications because I expected something more.I was expected even longer zoom maybe even the rumored 100x optical zoom.

Canon  PowerShot SX60 HS comes with 65x optical zoom which is equivalent to 21–1365mm. It has the same 1/2.3 in CMOS Sensor old Canon SX50 camera but comes with new DIGIC 6 image processor which gives 16 Mega Pixel resolution.

This is not an cheap point and shoot camera. This is an high-end bridge camera which is great as a family camera or for something who has started learning photography. Canon SX60 Can cost you around $550 but it comes with a big inbuilt lens so you don't need to buy an expensive interchangeable lenses. It can take great zoom photos and also really good Macro photos. All Canon Bridge cameras are really good I have yet to see someone who didn't like his SX camera.

If you already have an old sx camera like Canon SX10 to Canon SX30  and you want to upgrade then you should go for this camera because it has plenty of better features like CMOS sensor, DIGIC 6 image processor and 65x zoom. If you have a Canon SX40 or Canon SX50 then it's better stick with your current camera than upgrading it. I don't think you will see much difference in photo quality or other features.

Even though you don't need a 1000 USD budget for this camera there are several accessories you should buy along with it. You will need following camera accessories. You can skip these but sooner or later you will realize you need those so it's better you buy those along with the camera. It will save money too.

  • Camera Bag.
  • UV Filter as Lens protector.
  • SDHC Memory Card.
  • Extra Battery.
  • A tripod.
  • External Flash. (Not a must but it can come handy)
  • Camera cleaning Set.
You might find a Bundle at Amazon for good price. But if you want best quality accessory then better pick each item separate and buy all together. You should buy the fastest Memory card you can find because it will help you a lot when you make videos or do continuous shooting.
