Product details

Remember the moment in beautifully sharp detail, crystal clear colours and stunning clarity with the Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Compact Digital Camera.

Snap the moment

Give your memories the quality they deserve and capture life's wonderful moments in clean, crisp and colourful detail. The Canon HS system is designed to inject more detail into each moment, even when shooting in challenging light. At the heart of the compact PowerShot camera sits an advanced DIGIC 4+ processor and a 16-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS image sensor. This impressive combination produces beautifully sharp photos with rich tones, natural colours and ambience of the scene, just like the real thing.

Get closer

The 18x optical zoom range lets you get up close to the subject while a handy 36x ZoomPlus feature takes you even closer without compromising on image quality.

The 25 mm ultra-wide angle lens means you can capture more in a single frame, perfect for composing shots with groups of people or breathtaking scenery.

It's possible to capture more difficult shots in sharp focus thanks to the intelligent optical image stabilisation system. The camera automatically selects the optimal Image Stabiliser mode from 8 options for pin-sharp, crisp and striking stills and videos.

Fully connected

Share your latest photos using the built-in WiFi sharing facility. This allows you to instantly connect with your smartphone, tablet, printer or PC. Wirelessly transfer moments for backup or to share with friends and family online. When connected to a smartphone you can add GPS location information to your images. That's not all; you can use the smartphone as a remote and capture with remote shooting.

The NFC functionality gives you an instant link between the SX600 camera and NFC enabled devices.

Scene modes

To take great pictures quickly, just point and shoot. The Smart Auto mode automatically detects the scene and selects the most favourable settings from 32 variables (21 in movies). This is great for those who want quick, hassle-free photos.

Hybrid Auto mode captures a 4 second movie clip before each snap, then combines them into a fun HD (720p) movie.

Creative filters

A Creative Shot mode makes shooting simple - capture the moment and the camera will analyse the scene before automatically generating five creative images and the original photo too, leaving you with the composition in a variety of cool and artistic ways. You can also select a filter category and create final images with your chosen set of Creative Shot filters.

Full HD movies

Record picture-perfect movies in Full HD. Video capture works with the Intelligent IS system to ensure steadier and sharper video recordings. Connect the camera to your HDTV via the HDMI connection and playback recordings at their best with your friends and family.

Be ready for that perfect moment with the Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Compact Digital Camera in red.
