  • Conclusion: The SX260 HS fills a very small niche. Yes, it’s a point-and-shoot, but its $350 price tag means that the extras you’re paying for have to be specifically worth it to the buyer.

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS delivers an impressive 20x zoom ratio and very good image quality in a compact package. Integrated GPS is a boon for geotaggers, but the camera's video prowess and high ISO performance aren't best in class.
  • Pros: Compact. Sharp, long zoom lens. Integrated GPS.
  • Cons: 1080p video captured limited to 24fps. Loss of detail at high ISOs. Priced on the high side.

TechRadar UK
24 July 2012
  • Summary: A talented travel camera packing a far-reaching 25-500mm zoom
  • Pros: Great image quality, Excellent zoom range, Good handling, Full manual control, Full HD video with stereo sound, The combination of automatic and fully manual shooting options, plus creative effects such as slow motion video, are great fun and useful.
  • Cons: Pictures can appear soft, Battery life reduced with GPS, Pop-up flash position, Basic panorama mode, No raw shooting, High quality, high speed burst shooting isn't available in all modes, and battery life, rated at 230 shots in normal use (and a lot less with GPS activated) is merely OK.

  • Excerpt: Last year bridge cameras became overly popular because they had far reaching zooms and the DSLR look that appealed to most audiences. However, a sub-segment of cameras also started gaining popularity and this genre of cameras came to be known as travel compacts.

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: The SX260 HS is small, well designed and, for point and shoot snappers, performs a treat too. But in such a hotly contested market place it could do with that little bit more oomph to really take it to the next level: we’d like to see a touchscreen with edge-to-edge focus control in the future.
  • Pros: Among the best/most detailed shots in its class, big zoom in a small body, well priced for a Canon (often holds a price premium), ease of use
  • Cons: Limited AF selection in manual modes, no touchscreen, chromatic aberrations visible (colour fringing), 500mm max aperture is f/6.8, no raw files
