About Canon PowerShot SX60HS
The PowerShot SX60 HS is a super-zoom compact well-suited for travel and sports photography. With a 65x optical zoom lens, it packs one of the world’s highest zoom capability in its class. The 16.1 megapixel PowerShot SX60 HS is ideal for travel and sports photographers, where zoom empowers users to capture subjects from long distances.
The PowerShot SX60 HS grants unprecedented control in video recording on a compact camera with Manual Movie mode. This mode allows advanced users to adjust settings such as shutter speed, aperture and ISO. That gives you a lot of control even in shooting still photos.
Amazing Telephoto Function
I was particularly eager to check its telephoto capability. There is a mine nearby visible from our village. Using the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS, I was able to zoom into the processing plant of the mine and I was surprised at how powerful the telephoto function of this small gadget is. I have never seen the mine this close.
The photos below will give you an idea of how far the subject was from where I was standing. Notice the only structure in the first photo and see how I was able to zero-in to that subject.
Another thing I wanted to check was the macro ability of the telephoto. If you are a few meters away from the subject and zoom out, you can zero in on finer details. I was happy to achieve bokeh effect from this camera, something that is difficult to achieve on my previous dslr's kit lens. And I was surprised at how sharp it could get. The register on the screen was good but I was skeptical until I opened it on my pc because some camera screens are good but when opened on the computer that's when you notice the finer details.
I set it in P mode as I was too lazy to do manual. It was 4:00 pm when I went around so I was a bit worried the sun was still too bright but the camera intelligently managed the settings. The colors are sharp and crisp.
