Able to shoot far and wide

Thanks to its impressive 65x zoom capabilities, this Canon PowerShot SX60 Bridge Camera lets you shoot high-quality images of distant subjects such as wildlife and subjects that are inaccessible.

The 21 mm lens provides a wide view too, so you can take stunning shots of landscapes, architecture and other large objects.

The PowerShot SX60 offers autofocus and one-touch Zoom Framing Assist that keep things sharp and allow you to quickly zoom out of a scene to keep subjects in your sights.

When the button is released, the camera will zoom back to where you need it to be. The camera also has an enhanced Auto Mode that automatically zooms out when the subject begins exiting the frame so that you can keep it at a preset size for more consistent results.

Steady shooter

You'll love taking photos with your Canon PowerShot SX60, which offers a comfortable grip and steadier shots at all zoom levels with its ergonomic grip.

Use the electronic viewfinder for SLR-like control and framing – it lets you see clearly even in brightly-lit situations. Focusing remains quick, smooth and silent across the zoom range with an Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) in place.

The Canon PowerShot SX60 is super-responsive and capable of high-speed continuous shooting, allowing you to react to every moment with precision timing.

Smart Auto mode gives you an easy way to grab awesome pictures and movies without hassle, and you can even use the Hybrid Auto function to view an HD (720p) slideshow of the shots you've taken in a day.

High quality shots

The PowerShot SX60 features a 16.1 megapixel CMOS and DIGIC 6 image processor for consistently impressive image quality, even when you're shooting in low light. Capture the true atmosphere and lightning nuances of each moment without having to use a flash or tripod – it's a great way to expand your creativity and photographic range.

Intelligent optical image stabilisation overcomes the effects of camera shake by adapting to capture conditions and delivering sharp photos packed with detail.

You can shoot at full zoom or handheld in dim conditions and still get crisp results – plus your videos will remain nice and steady with the inclusion of 5-axis Enhanced Dynamic Image Stabilisation.

Full HD videos

At the press of a button, the Canon PowerShot SX60 Bridge Camera is able to record crisp, natural-looking Full HD videos at 60p. Your movies will be complemented by clear, satisfying stereo sound – even more so because of the camera's silent controls and zoom.

There's a jack for attaching an external microphone and manual controls to get audio levels to the point you want them at. These flexible features make for better-quality home videos.

More control and wireless capabilities

The Canon PowerShot SX60 is great for developing your photographic eye, presenting a full range of exposure controls to capture more professional-looking stills and videos. Shoot in RAW and take advantage of the EOS System accessories (sold separately) to open up new horizons.

Upload photos and movies direct to social networks, and transfer them direct to a smartphone or tablet via the Mobile Device Connect Button and NFC. The Canon CameraWindow app allows remote control from your smartphone, while Image Sync gives you a convenient PC and cloud backup facility.

This is a replacement for my last sx60 which is getting old. I haven’t found a bridge camera that even comes close with this optical zoom. Versatile camera which I use for general purpose and bird pics
