The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS is a new superzoom camera with a 16.1MP CMOS sensor and 65x optical zoom lens (21-1365mm equivalent). Of course with that kind of reach, the lens features Optical Image Stabilization. Notably, it can capture RAW still images for greater latitude in post processing.
The camera also shoots 1080/60p video with automatic or manual exposure available. It has a built-in stereo mic and includes a mic port for adding an external mic.
It is equipped with Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor and features face detection and tracking AF systems. It can also capture up to 6.4fps without tracking AF.
The SX60 HS has built-in WiFi and NFC for connecting to Canon’s Image Gateway app on mobile devices. The camera sports a 3-inch 922k-dot resolution Vari-Angle LCD.
