Canon PowerShot SX260 HS

  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS' wider, longer lens, a few much-needed design tweaks, and excellent photo quality add up to one pretty great compact megazoom.
  • Cons: The SX260 HS' menus and controls can take some getting used to, it's got a short battery life, and photos get noticeably softer-looking indoors or in low light.

  • Conclusion: We felt very comfortable using the Canon SX260, confident that what we saw on the LCD viewfinder was what we were capturing on the memory card. Still pictures were very consistent: perfectly exposed, sharply focused, displaying great detail and good color. And by playing with the modes and settings, we were able to both create interesting special effects and tweak very good shots into excellent photographs.
  • Pros: 20X zoom ranges from 25-500mm equivalent, Optical image stabilization, Tracking autofocus, Face detection autofocus, Wink activation for self-portraits, Full HD video, Allows autofocus and optical zoom while shooting, Stereo microphones, 461K-dot, 3-inch LCD, HDMI interface, Good image quality, GPS capability, PASM exposure modes, Discreet mode is great for quiet places, Very little geometric distortion, Low chromatic aberration, Good Macro mode, Good print quality, F...

Canon SX260 HS Review

  • 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

  • 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.

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)
