Canon PowerShot SX260 HS Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
28 September 2012
  • Conclusion: For under $500 the Canon Powershot SX260 does more than you’d expect. It has many unique features that set it aside from other similar priced models such as GPS and iFrame Video. It has the highest build quality and the highest quality materials. It does everything you’d expect a more expensive model to do but at the cheaper price.  If you’re ready for the next step in photography but not quite ready for the big step to DSLR then this camera is for you.

Canon hopes to secure top honors as 2012's best travel-zoom camera.

  • Conclusion: Canon's SX260 HS has posted the best scores of any travel zoom camera that we've tested so far in 2012, and we think there's a pretty good chance it will carry this title all the way to our end of the year awards. But test scores aside, we really just enjoyed shooting with it. The camera is quick, compact, comfortable, and produces above-average photos in varying situations. This is an ideal travel companion.

  • Conclusion: In terms of street price, there's a wafer thin mint between the Canon SX260 HS and the Panasonic TZ30 (the Canon is currently a little cheaper). But the longer zoom range, versatile exposure modes, ease of use and picture quality make the Canon PowerShot SX260 HS a slightly more well-rounded and better value family camera.

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS

  • Summary: Two common features are missing, though: high dynamic range (which combines several exposures to gain greater depth and detail) and in-camera panorama. "The panorama mode is still Canon's Stitch Assist, where you take a photo and then try to line up a ghost image to take the rest of the photos so you can then head back to a computer to stitch them together with software," says Goldman at CNET.
  • Pros: 20x zoom, Better photo quality than other pocket ultra-zooms, Robust manual controls, GPS and lots of other extras
  • Cons: Some image flaws, like fringing and blown-out highlights, Sluggish autofocus, Video mode lags behind rivals, Short battery life

  • Excerpt: Canon continues to update their popular SX-series line of compact super-zooms, with the PowerShot SX260 HS being their most recent entry for the first half of 2012. This unit builds upon the SX230 HS from last year, with several upgrades. The most notable of these is the 20x optical zoom lens, which covers a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 25 - 500mm.

  • Summary: Canon's PowerShot SX260 HS is a well-designed compact travel zoom that produces photos that hold up well against the competition. It has a solid set of features for the point-and-shoot crowd, though serious photographers may find some annoyances. The SX260 isn't the most responsive camera out there, but as long as you avoid fast-moving subjects, it'll serve you well.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality for the compact ultra zoom category, Packs a 20X, 25 - 500 mm lens into a compact and stylish body, Optical image stabilization; camera will select the appropriate IS mode for the situation, High resolution 3-inch LCD with very good outdoor and low light visibility, Built-in GPS doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but gets the job done, Good set of manual controls, Smart Auto mode picks one of 58 scene modes for you; plenty of other point...
  • Cons: Critical image quality somewhat lacking at 100%, Some highlight clipping and purple fringing (try using i-Contrast to reduce the former), Redeye a problem (though it can be removed in playback mode), Autofocus performance lags behind the competition; camera struggled to focus in low light at times, ISO locked at 100 at shutter speeds below 1 second, Enthusiasts will bemoan lack of RAW support, bracketing, white balance fine-tuning, and a live histogram, Video quality ...

Canon SX260 HS Review

27 May 2012
  • Summary: Every bit of the Canon SX260 HS is so beautiful, that we have a ridiculously hard time putting it down. The camera is extremely slim, sturdy (thanks to the metal frame) and the curved edges make it extremely comfortable in the hands. Performance wise, the camera managed to keep up with practically everything we threw at it. The price tag of Rs 22,995 seems a little steep, however the performance coupled up with the form factor of the camera justify the price.
  • Pros: Slim and sturdy, Great performance even at ISO 3200, Intuitive interface and ergonomics
  • Cons: Trifle expensive, Poor audio recording, Mediocre video recording in low light
