Summary: There's also built-in Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication (NFC) technologies to consider. Simply press the Mobile Device Connect Button to pair your SX600 HS with a smartphone or tablet running the iOS or Android Canon Camera Window app.
Pros: Exposure and Color were accurate in all shooting modes, Dedicated Video Capture Button is always ready to record, Intelligent I.S. helps steady the camera while shooting on the go or in low-light, Good overall image quality, 460k dot LCD is great for shooting and viewing images, Good shooting per...
Cons: More noise than expected at all ISO settings, Initial WiFi setup was not the easiest we have used., Slow Flash recharge times
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.
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...
Pros: Focal range; Performance; Image Quality; Value for money
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.

Excerpt: The PowerShotSX600 is a powerful pocket camera from Canon. This offering is small in size, runs on a solid rechargeable battery and has a huge 18x optical zoom, 16MP image capture as well as being able to take full HD movies at the touch of a button.
Excerpt: Pocket ultra-zoom cameras are enduringly popular, and most manufacturers have two or more models in their range. Canon hasn't done much to distinguish between its models in the past –last year's SX270 HS and Canon SX280 HS were identical except for the latter's built-in GPS and Wi-Fi functions.
Summary: There’s a lot to like about Canon’s latest midrange travel-zoom compact. The Canon PowerShot SX600 HS is a doddle to operate thanks to simple menus and sensible controls, plus autofocusing, exposure metering and auto white balance all perform admirably.
Summary: A reliable 18x zoom travel compact with a range of useful functions
Pros: 18x optical zoom, Wi-Fi / NFC, Creative Filters, Probably the best thing about this camera is the 18x optical zoom, which offers a very good range for the majority of users in the majority of scenarios. It's not the longest available on the market, sure, but it's also not the most expensive. Imag...
Cons: No touchscreen, Lack of control in Creative mode, Macro focusing sometimes disappointing, There's not too much to dislike about the SX600, it's more a collection of small niggles, many of which may be down to personal preference anyway. For instance, the lack of a touchscreen or lack of control o...
