The fact that the PowerShot SX260 HS digital camera is an ultra-slim camera with a powerful 20x Optical Zoom, Optical Image Stabilization and 25mm Wide-Angle lens is only the beginning of its attractions. The fact that the PowerShot SX260 HS digital camera is an ultra-slim camera with a powerful 20x Optical Zoom, Optical Image Stabilization and 25mm Wide-Angle lens is only the beginning of its attractions. You'll see detail you never thought possible through the huge zoom and wide-angle lens, while the camera's 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor deliver the rich, clear low-light performance that is the hallmark of Canon's HS SYSTEM. 1080p Full HD video in stereo is more beautiful than ever, with new high-resolution, high-speed processing. Sophisticated advancements include improved Smart AUTO that optimizes settings for 58 predefined shooting situations, Face ID that prioritizes pre-registered faces, and GPS for tracking and recording your shooting locations.

Astonishingly Slim.
Canon's powerful 20x Optical Zoom and 25mm Wide-Angle lens with Optical Image Stabilization delivers stunning images from up close or at a distance. Ultra-slim Camera with powerful 20x Optical Zoom, Optical Image Stabilization and 25mm Wide-Angle Lens

At just over 1 1/4 inches thick, the PowerShot SX260 HS is an ultra-slim digital camera with a powerful 20x Optical Zoom. But because its lens embodies the quality and legacy of Genuine Canon Optics, its advantages go far beyond making the camera slim enough to slip in your pocket and carry anywhere. With a range of 25mm - 500mm (35mm equivalent), the lens gives you the power to capture the full breadth of scenes, with details you've never captured before. Images are bright and vivid with spectacular clarity thanks to Optical Image Stabilization.

Optical Image Stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical, providing excellent image quality in many difficult shooting situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.


UA Lens Technology
Pioneered by Canon, UA Lens technology makes possible compact lenses with remarkable optical performance. By using molded glass with an ultra-high refractive index in aspherical lens elements, Canon has succeeded in reducing lens size while significantly reducing image aberrations. Another stellar example of cutting-edge Canon optics, UA Lens technology helps make PowerShot digital cameras pocket-friendly and capable of astounding image quality.

Experience the Power.
A 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor combined with the DIGIC 5 Image Processor creates Canon's HS SYSTEM for outstanding low-light performance.

The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider range of shooting situations. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in PowerShot cameras: a high-sensitivity imaging sensor, which is able to capture more light; and the DIGIC 5 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise with high-speed image processing. The 12.1 Megapixel Canon CMOS sensor in the PowerShot SX260 HS incorporates advanced light reception technology that enhances sensitivity. The DIGIC 5 Image Processor provides a major boost in noise reduction, expanding the usable ISO range to an amazing high of ISO 3200. The Canon HS SYSTEM thus lets you use higher shutter speeds to capture clearer images with reduced noise and blur.

Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor
The latest-generation Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor brings phenomenal increases in processing speed and power. Improved chip architecture and algorithms deliver greatly expanded functionality with further refinement in image quality. Improved noise reduction produces clearer images when shooting in low light at high ISO speeds. Enhanced i-Contrast performance adjusts differences between light and dark areas to achieve even more natural-looking results. The faster processing speed also results in faster continuous shooting capability while maintaining full image quality. The DIGIC 5 Image Processor also makes possible a new, highly advanced automatic white balance system. Whereas conventional white balance makes an overall adjustment based on a single type of light source, the new Canon Multi-Area White Balance analyzes several areas of the image to determine whether different adjustments are needed, for example, for the main subject and the background.

Memorable Moments in Spectacular Full HD
Shoot beautiful 1080p Full HD video in stereo sound with a dedicated movie button; zoom while shooting and play back videos on an HDTV via the HDMI output. Canon Full HD Video Advantage

In addition to the Canon HS SYSTEM, the combination of the advanced CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor in the PowerShot SX260 HS makes it possible to shoot crisp, clear high definition video. Imagine the fun and excitement of being able to shoot spectacular 1080p Full HD video with stereo sound that you can later watch on your HDTV or download to your computer to share with family and friends. In addition to being able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24* frames per second, the PowerShot SX260 HS can also shoot 720p HD video at 30** frames per second.
*Actual frame rate is 23.976 fps.
**Actual frame rate is 29.97 fps.

Dedicated Movie Button, Wind filter feature and Optical Zoom for easy video capture
It's never been easier to shoot videos with a PowerShot digital camera. The PowerShot SX260 HS has a dedicated movie button that lets you start and stop recording instantly. There is no need to go through layers of menus or operate switches or dials to switch to and from video recording mode. The camera is always ready to shoot stills or video whenever you want. The PowerShot SX260 HS also incorporates an electronic wind filter, which suppresses wind noise that can muffle or distort the sound. And unlike less sophisticated point-and-shoot cameras, the PowerShot SX260 HS lets you use the full range of optical zoom when you're shooting a video.


HDTV playback via HDMI output and CEC
It's easy to enjoy and share the videos you shoot with the PowerShot SX260 HS. Simply connect its HDMI terminal to your HDTV using an HDMI cable. And because the PowerShot SX260 HS supports HDMI-CEC technology, you'll be able to control the playback of your images and videos on any CEC-enabled HDTV using the TV's remote control. (CEC - Consumer Electronic Control - is part of the HDMI specification, enabling components in a system to communicate with one another.)

iFrame
With the PowerShot SX260 HS, you can also shoot video in the Apple? iFrame format, which is a computer-friendly standard that speeds up importing and editing of videos. It keeps file sizes small, making it more convenient to upload or e-mail high-quality videos. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video applications, making it unnecessary to perform time-consuming and often quality-degrading conversions.

A Smarter Camera Means Better Photos and Videos.
Improved Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings based on 58 predefined shooting situations and the new Face ID function adjusts focus and exposure priority based on pre-registered faces. Smart AUTO

Smart AUTO for the PowerShot SX260 HS has been significantly expanded, making it easier than ever to capture the sharp, bright, colorful images ? and videos ? you?re looking for. By assessing various factors in both the background and the subject, the system recognizes 58 predefined shooting situations and automatically selects the camera settings that will yield the best possible results. Simply frame the shot you want, and in dozens of common or challenging scenarios the camera takes care of the rest. Hard-to-capture shots such as moving subjects, night scenes, backlit subjects, and landscapes at evening or on a bright snowy day are instantly and effortlessly captured as "keeper" shots. Smart AUTO makes the PowerShot SX260 HS ideal for capturing excellent quality still images and video on the go.

A Steady Image Is a Beautiful Image.
Intelligent IS automatically chooses from six different modes to optimize image stabilization for the shooting condition. Intelligent IS

The latest advance in Canon Optical Image Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system automatically selects among Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod IS modes. When shooting video, the system automatically selects among Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod IS modes. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make the most effective IS settings to assure the steadiest possible image.

The Ideal Traveling Companion.

New with the PowerShot SX260 HS, the video is captured in 720p high definition so that it looks smooth and beautifully detailed when played back on your HDTV. With bundled software ImageBrowser EX, you can easily delete any scenes you don't want.

5 out of 5 stars   Highly recommend for a "picture taker"
By beach girl (Daytona Beach, FL) August 01, 2012
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX260 HS Green Digital Camera 20x Optical Zoom 1080p Video (CNPSSX260HSGN)
Pros: Size, Zoom
Cons:
Other Comments: I searched and searched for a small camera to take to Africa. I am a "picture taker" not a photographer and this camera was excellent. I went through the manual on the computer and picked the features I knew I would want to use. I am so pleased with my pictures--and the 20x zoom is outstanding. I used the greater zoom but it is difficult to hold it steady to get a good picture. I haven't used the GPS and really didn't want it, but I'll figure it out. I highly recommend this camera if you just want to take "good" pictures.

4 out of 5 stars   Not a Camera for Complete Novice
By OneOwl (Poughquag, NY) July 13, 2012
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX260 HS Green Digital Camera 20x Optical Zoom 1080p Video (CNPSSX260HSGN)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: I have owned several Canon Powershot Cameras and helped people purchase over 70 of these. This camera is a little more intricate than my last two and a little harder to figure out than the SD870 IS and the later SD950 IS with 4X and 5X optical zoom. I decided to get this 20X optical Zoom camera to shoot wildlife when I am working in the big woods. It reaches way out there but you have to be a genius to hand hold it at greater zoom levels. Probably should be on a tripod or a monopod with a 2 second self-portrait setting so you don't move the camera. I do not like the NEW OPTION to delete photos in a group from the SD Card in this camera. Historically in these cameras you can choose ERASE BY DATE and just dump all 350 photos from yesterdays event. Now you must pick a photo number to start at and then a number to end at, while holding the camera in the field, and then delete the group. This is a poor option compared to how simple it always was. The Old Cameras used a wonderful program called ZOOM BROWSER and it started up as soon as you disconnected the camera from the computer after downloading same. Not the new program...You have to physically start Zoom Browser that you already own instead of it starting automatically. Why is this a big deal to me as it is only an extra move..? I shoot 40,000 photos a year and want these programs to run like clockwork. The camera is always in my top left shirt pocket with the hand strap extended by the Canon Metal Neck Strap so I can pull it out and just shoot quickly. This camera body is a little heavier and slightly thicker than the older models because of the bigger zoom lens. My SD950 IS is at Canon's Repair facility and when it gets back in a few days I will retire this camera to my home and carry the smaller body camera for comfort. Like I said, I carry this camera all day every day everywhere. Normally folks do not do that. Basicilly I would reccomend that the adverage person buy any Canon Powershot Camera up to a 5X optical Zoom and the ease of use is great. These cameras are really point and shoot and you will look like a pro always and the size lets you take it in your pocketbook or pocket to events and therefore you will use it a lot. The photos are stunning from people to sunsets. Most are 10 to 12 Megipixls and that is way more than needed. The Canon Software is excellent and easy to use, just make sure to name today's dated photo folder TODAY so that after a few years you have an organized file and not a big pile of photos like your parents had in a box in the attic..! The results are perfect and this amount of zoom would be frustrating to a novice in my opinion after 74 of the other models without one complaint. The panoromas I take without a tripod are perfect as the photo stitch part of their program is super.

Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: We've used Canon cameras for going on 20 years. We bought this one to replace a PowerShot A720 that ran on AA batteries and was constantly telling us to replace batteries, even when they were fairly new. Now we're back to proprietary batteries and hopefully won't re-encounter that problem.
