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
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.
