Canon SX240 HS / SX260 HS

Camera Labs
1 May 2012
  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX240 HS has had some catching up to do. Last year's SX220/230HS retained the same 14x lens as its predecessor, but with a brand new 20x optical zoom the new SX240 HS is now on a par with competitors like the Panasonic Lumix ZS20 / TZ30 and the Sony Cyber-shot HX20V / HX30V. It's also done some catching up in the continuous shooting stakes, going from 2.2fps to 10.3fps in a single bound.
  • Pros: Broad 20x stabilised zoom in slim body., 10fps fast full resolution burst mode., Improved stabilisation., Great image quality.
  • Cons: No customisation options or presets., Wobbling movie artifacts at full zoom., Fiddly / noisy dual speed zoom., Modest 5cm close focus.

Canon Powershot SX240HS Review

15 April 2012
  • Summary: Canon Powershot SX240HS is a wonderful travel zoom camera offering 20x optical zoom. It�s quite an improvement over the SX220HS sporting a better image processor, thereby giving more detail in the images. The HD video recording mode is quite good offering better noise control in both indoor and outdoor conditions over the SX220HS. Quite feature-rich for the newbies as well as amateur users. We just felt the pricing at Rs.
  • Pros: 20x optical zoom, Good HD video output, Exhaustive feature-set
  • Cons: Price

Canon PowerShot SX240HS

1 June 2012
  • Summary: While a few may still be wowed by huge MegaPixel, most now know it’s the quality of the CMOS that gives quality of image, here you get a perfectly respectable 12.1MP and an excellent 20x optical zoom in a small form factor.

Canon PowerShot SX240 HS

Absolut Photo
28 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Voilà pour nous un excellent rapport qualité - prix du moment : à moins de 300 euros, Canon a réussi à proposer un compact à gros zoom sans que cela se fasse au détriment de la qualité d'image. C'est en effet la force de ce SX240 HS, le zoom équivalent 25-500 délivre des résultats très satisfaisants malgré son amplitude importante (et ce n'est pas toujours le cas).
  • Pros: Qualit? d'image, Zoom d'amplitude, Vid?o Full HD
  • Cons: Autonomie limit?e, R?activit? qui n'a rien d'extraordinaire

Med fokus på kvalitet

22 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Canon tracker og finder selv ud af, hvilken indstilling der er bedst, og det gør kameraet overbevisende – ikke mindst fordi det undervejs fortæller dig, hvad det foretager sig. Skyd, og kameraet justerer resten selv. Eneste ankepunkt er, at du ofte skal vente et par sekunder, før du kan se billedet. Det kunne være gjort bedre.

Test: Canon PowerShot SX240 HS (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
2 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Die PowerShot SX240 HS ist eine gut ausgestattete Reisezoom-Kamera mit insgesamt überzeugender Bildqualität. Allerdings schärft der Autofokus im Tele für Schnappschüsse zu langsam - doch dieses Manko teilt die SX240 HS mit dem Schwestermodell SX260 HS.
  • Pros: Gute Bildqualität, Eingängige Bedienung, Gutes Full-HD-Video
  • Cons: Geschwindigkeit Autofokus im Tele, Verarbeitungszeit zwischen zwei Fotos
