  • 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. From there, you can connect to a PC, upload your images and videos to the internet, back up files on the Canon Image Sync Cloud, and much, much more. New to most of the 2014 Canon models is Creative Shot Mode. What is it?
  • 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 performance, Great Battery Life, Movie Digest gives a new, creative look at a shooting trip, ECO mode extends battery life, Competitively priced
  • Cons: More noise than expected at all ISO settings, Initial WiFi setup was not the easiest we have used., Slow Flash recharge times

Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Review

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 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.

Canon PowerShot SX600 HS review

TechRadar UK
4 April 2014
  • 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. Images taken at the telephoto end of the lens are good, too.
  • 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 over Creative Mode.

Canon PowerShot SX600 HS review

25 March 2014
  • 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. This year, its two models have more significant differences. While the SX700 HS has a whopping 30x zoom, the SX600 HS makes do with a more modest 18x zoom.

Обзор фотоаппарата Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Travel Kit: комфорт в каждом изгибе

17 October 2014
  • Summary: Достойное устройство среди компактных фотоаппаратов. Продвинутые пользователи могут найти его несколько скучным из-за отсутствия ручных настроек, но для тех, кто хочет просто сделать снимок и не ковыряться в установках – самое то. К тому же, в качестве компенсации есть режим с большим выбором сцен и эффектов, а также креативный режим, который применяет симпатичные фильтры.

PowerShot SX600 HS

  • Conclusion: Die Canon PowerShot SX600 HS ist in der Praxis eine gut zu bedienende Kamera für unterwegs. Einen Blick auf die Leistung bei der Bildqualität und der Geschwindigkeit werfen wir jetzt. 1/2,3 Zoll große Bildsensoren sind bei Reisezoom-Kameras die Standardgröße. Deshalb ist es nicht verwunderlich, dass auch bei der Canon PowerShot SX600 HS (Datenblatt) ein Modell mit diesen Abmessungen zum Einsatz kommt.
  • Pros: Klassenübliche Bildqualität (für eine Reisezoomkamera), 18-fach-Zoomobjektiv mit enorm großem Brennweitenbereich (25 bis 450mm nach KB), Mit 25mm sehr brauchbarer Weitwinkelbereich, Gute Abbildungsleistung des Objektivs, Das Kameragehäuse ist gut bis sehr gut verarbeitet, Für eine Kamera mit 18-fach-Zoom sehr kompakt, Sehr guter optischer Bildstabilisator (bei Foto und Video), Sehr kurze Auslöseverzögerung (0,03 Sek.) und sehr kurze Fokussierungszeit (0,18 Sek.), 8 Sz...
  • Cons: Das Objektiv ist mit F3,8 bis F6,9 sehr lichtschwach, Die Bildrate ist im Serienbildmodus mit 2,2 Bildern pro Sekunde zu gering, Keine manuellen und halb automatischen Fotoprogramme, Nur relativ wenige Einstellungsmöglichkeiten
