Great superzoom camera
I do quite a bit of photography and have several cameras including a DSLR. The Canon SX60 is often compared to the newer Nikon P900 which has a 84x zoom lens as opposed to this Canon's 65x.
I've found the SX60 takes great pics and its zoom is just as good. Review sites often state that the Canon's images are better quality than the Nikon's but to me this is fairly irrelevant. If your purpose is to achieve flawless images even when blown up to the size of a billboard then perhaps one needs to consider a (much) more expensive DSLR. If however...you're needing a good basic camera that has all the features you're likely to need and a big zoom in a small package then I would certainly recommend this camera. If I need to take those much more important images for graphics that I do in my work, then I use my DSLR - but for pretty much everything else I take my SX60 - which saves me having to lug around a 'better' camera and its extra telephoto lenses. The image quality out of the SX60 is very good and far ahead of what such cameras were producing even just a few years ago. And to get a zoom lens anywhere even close to the Canon's 65x I'd just about have to sell my house to afford. In summary I'd recommend the Canon SX60 because it's reliable, easy-to-use, and takes very good images - and importantly, it's quite small - much smaller (and cheaper) than the bigger-lensed Nikon P900.
Questions & Answers
I am on safari and my cameras is new. The main view finder has stopped working. Can review taken images on it but can't use to take pictures. In can use small view finder (peep hole.). Please tell me how to correct
Hi. You change displays from Viewfinder to LCD by twice pressing the DISP button (lower side of the main FUNC. SET button) on the back. And the same to go back again.
