Canon PowerShot SX260 HS Review

What Digital Camera
8 May 2012
  • Summary: As an updated model, Canon resisted the temptation to update it so much, they risked throwing the baby out with bath water. Good things about the SX230 HS such as the sensor appear unchanged. The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS is perhaps a little on the slow side and the problems with the redesigned optics means it’s also not as sharp as it could be yet it remains a very versatile all round compact camera.
  • Pros: Image quality (at wider focal lengths), 20x optical zoom lens in such a compact camera, Full HD video with Stereo sound, Value for money, Compact
  • Cons: Lack of sharpness when zoomed, Pop up flash in poor position, Chromatic aberration, Slow, Poor pop up flash position

Canon Powershot SX260 HS

Cameras
16 May 2012
  • Conclusion: The Canon Powershot SX260 HS is one of the very best digital cameras in this category. In fact if you are happy to miss out on features such as 3D photography and 360 degree panoramas it is very hard to beat. It has a great set of features packed into its relatively compact body size and picture quality helps to make it stand out from the competition. Although it is one of the more expensive cameras in this field it still offers good value for money.

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS review

expertreviews.co.uk
19 April 2012
  • Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot SX230 HS was our favourite pocket ultra-zoom camera of 2011. Rival cameras offered bigger zooms, faster performance, fancier shooting modes and sharper screens, but the SX230 HS's image quality was head-and-shoulders above the competition, especially in low light. This year's updated model shows some shrewd judgement on Canon's part.

PowerShot SX260 HS

Das Digitalkamera-Magazin
16 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Die Canon PowerShot SX260 HS (Datenblatt) ist das Nachfolgemodell der Canon PowerShot SX230 HS (Testbericht) . Die größten Veränderungen: Der Brennweitenbereich hat sich vergrößert (20-fach statt 14-fach optisches Zoom), der Weitwinkel ist besser ausgestattet (25mm statt 28mm) und das Display besitzt wieder das 4:3-Format (statt 16:9).
  • Pros: Überdurchschnittliche Bildqualität (in der Klasse der Reisezoom-Kameras), 20-fach Zoomobjektiv mit sehr großem Brennweitenbereich (25 bis 500m nach KB), Mit 25mm sehr brauchbarer Weitwinkelbereich, Relativ kompakte Kamera trotz großem Brennweitenbereich und vieler integrierter Funktionen, Kameragehäuse ist hochwertig verarbeitet, Schnappschuss-tauglich: schneller Autofokus, sehr kurze Auslöseverzögerung, Gute Voll- und Halbautomatiken, Volle manuelle Kontrolle, Manuel...
  • Cons: Display mit "nur" durchschnittlicher Auflösung (460.000 Subpixel), Die Digitalkamera liegt mangels Handgriff nur mittelmäßig in der Hand, Kein RAW-Bildformat vorhanden, Grenzwertige Lichtstärke in Telebereich, Nur 24 Vollbilder pro Sekunde im Videomodus bei Full-HD-Auflösung (1080p24), Keine Belichtungsreihenautomatik vorhanden (dafür gibt es die i-contrast-Funktion)
