Canon PowerShot SX600 HS

Steve's Digicams
4 August 2014
  • Excerpt: In early January of 2014, Canon announced the PowerShot SX600 HS, in preparation for CES 2014. It features an 18x optical zoom lens (25-450mm equivalent), 16-megapixel High Sensitivity (HS) CMOS image sensor, and Canon's DIGIC 4+ image processor. What does that mean for you? Instant access to far away subjects, even in lower lighting conditions.

Canon's PowerShot SX600 HS picks up where your phone leaves off without sacrificing easy sharing

CNET
24 June 2014
  • Summary: Though there's nothing extraordinary about it, the SX600 HS is a solid choice for snapshooters wanting a simple step up from a smartphone without sacrificing on-the-go sharing.
  • Pros: The Canon PowerShot SX600 HS delivers easy automatic shooting options, very good photo and video quality, and a useful zoom range with optical image stabilization in a slim, lightweight package and at a reasonable price.
  • Cons: The lens is slow, so indoor use of the zoom lens is limited, the autofocus can be frustratingly inaccurate at times, and low-light photo and video quality are merely OK.

Canon PowerShot SX600 HS review

Digitaltrends
9 May 2014
  • Conclusion: For $50 more than the ELPH 340 HS, you can get a similar camera with an increased zoom. However, that camera failed to impress us as much as its predecessor, the ELPH 330 HS. So, even though it may have a better lens, for us the SX600 feels nearly identical to the 340, and don’t feel it’s worth the $50 premium. (We still think the 330 offers a better deal in a pocket camera.
  • Pros: Compact, pocket-friendly body, 18x optical zoom, Easy to operate
  • Cons: Mediocre, noisy images, No advanced shooting modes, Slow lens zoom

  • Summary: The Canon Power-shot SX600 HS is one of those rare creatures; a camera with no downside. It is light, compact, exceptionally well made, easy and fun to use, produces reliably excellent still image and video quality under almost any circumstances, and has enough versatility and all-round performance to cope with pretty much any situation.

  • Conclusion: If you're looking for a reliable camera with a decent zoom range that's capable of producing good quality images – without too much input from you – this is a good option. If you want something with manual control, take a look at the Canon SX700 HS, which offers this functionality, along with an even longer zoom. It does come at a higher price though.

  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX600 HS is a 16 Megapixel compact super-zoom with an 18x optical zoom range starting at a 25mm equivalent wide angle and extending to 450mm at the telephoto end. It sits more or less in the middle of Canon's 2014 SX super-zoom range above the budget SX170 HS with the slightly bigger, more expensive and more powerful SX280 HS and SX700 HS above it.
  • Pros: 18x stabilized optical zoom., Built-in Wifi with NFC., 490-shot Eco mode., Creative Shot mode., Excellent optical stabilisation.
  • Cons: Poor High ISO noise performance., Lacks manual exposure control., No panorama mode., Limited functionalty in remote shooting.
