USM and VCM technology help ensure fast, silent zooming and focus during recording, and, in a first for a PowerShot model, you can attach an optional external microphone. And quickly share everything you capture: the PowerShot SX60 HS is Wi-Fi- and NFC-enabled with an easy Mobile Device Connect button.
Ultra Zooming Power in the Palm of Your Hands.
Lightweight with superb controllability, the 65x Optical Zoom (21-1365mm) Wide-Angle Lens with Optical Image Stabilizer for outstanding optical performance and versatility for both close-ups and wide shots. The PowerShot SX60 HS camera is a marvel of optical engineering; but it's also a Genuine Canon Lens, which means that the images you capture with it will be beautifully natural and true to life - whether you're shooting at the wide angle or extreme telephoto end.
Beautiful Images and Fast Performance Start Here.
The PowerShot SX60 HS camera employs a 16.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor. Utilizing a sophisticated light-capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for improved high ISO capture with reduced noise. It is also a high-speed design, capable of rapidly capturing and moving image data to the processor, enabling faster continuous shooting and faster autofocus. The camera is equipped with the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which makes several important advancements to image quality both in stills and video. Improved light sensitivity allows for higher resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions, and Dynamic IS now detects and compensates for tilt and parallel movement (shift blur) to create video that's exceptionally free of distortion. The DIGIC 6 Image Processor also enhances the performance capabilities, powering full resolution high-speed continuous stills shooting.
With the Canon HS SYSTEM, you'll experience excellent tracking performance even in low light, and achieve gorgeous still image quality even at high ISO speeds all the way up to ISO 3200; beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you use higher shutter speeds to capture clearer images with reduced noise and blur in a variety of situations for incredible photos, even when shooting video.
Serious Video and Audio Capability.
With the PowerShot SX60 HS camera, you'll preserve memories and creative film clips in beautifully realistic 1080p Full HD Video at 60 frames per second. Simply press the dedicated Movie button to begin recording. And now for the first time on a PowerShot model, a new input allows you to attach an optional external microphone (3.5mm diameter) for serious audio recording to match the high-quality video you'll capture. The camera's powerful zoom is equipped with Canon's precision-engineered Ultrasonic Motor (USM) and Voice Coil Motor (VCM) for fast, silent zooming and focus that won't interfere with audio capture.
Simply Tap to Connect.
The PowerShot SX60 HS camera supports NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, eliminating the need to manually find and open the Canon CameraWindow app# on your mobile device. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android device, and the CameraWindow app will launch automatically for quick, easy sharing of your images. Built-in NFC technology also makes it simpler to install the app.
Optimal Image Stabilization in Any Situation.
The PowerShot SX60 HS camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes
