setup too complicated

baitmaster, Amazon

  • Summary: Great camera, but you need to be a bit of a computer geek, to get it set up. Almost too many features. Just wanted a cam to take pics and download by wire. Took it back for a more simple one.

Disappointing and hard to setup

bc, Amazon
7 December 2014
  • Summary: With all of the good user reviews and consumer reports recommended buying I thought it would meet all of my expectations. It didn't. The only thing going for it was fast recovery between flash pictures. Here is what it isn't good at: * Flash: To use the flash, you have to manually pop-up the flash unit. * Shake: a feature my wife needs as she takes blurry pictures. Doesn't really work.

  • Summary: Everything was fine with this order except the HDMI cable that came with it. It did not have the right ( Type D ) end on it to fit the camera. I had to go and buy the right cable.

The quality wasn't that much better than that from a smartphone

  • Summary: The camera shots are decent, although they are nothing stunning. The quality wasn't that much better than that from a smartphone. Overall, I would pass on it.

I did not like the feel of it

  • Summary: Actually when I received the camera, I did not like the feel of it. It had nothing to do with Amazon. It was just that I wanting something more substantial and it didn't meet my expectation.

great camera, but software & wifi are poor

Chronic Game Programmer, Amazon
9 October 2014
  • Summary: PROS: The camera itself is good for people who don't want to fiddle with settings. I left it on auto mode for a trip to Europe and was mostly happy with image quality in all light levels. The SX600 performs especially well in low light, but the default settings also tend to over-expose in bright sunlight or with backlit subjects, and captures a lot of lens flare (J.J. Abrams fans rejoice!) CONS: The camera is Wi-Fi ONLY.

Good, but...

Bill, B&H Photo
20 September 2014
  • Excerpt: The camera is fine. It takes good pictures. It's pretty much fully automatic; it does not offer even the minimal control of the previous generation of point and shoots. Still, the automated choices are usually accurate. Smart focal point selection. The WIFI software is a train wreck. Software documentation is poor. I believe that B&H recommends purchasing the USB cable, and I agree with them. Use a cable and forget the WIFI is my advice.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, No Viewfinder

Great Picture Quality - but some annoying quirks.

Thomas Jackson, Amazon
6 September 2014
  • Summary: Nice feel, seems sturdy. Like the picture quality. The menus are better than the Casio it replaced, but still not intuitive (at least to me) and extremely complex. Doesn't come with a printed manual - and believe me, you'll need one! Very big zoom range, but a lot of the telephoto range is only useful if the camera is on a tripod or other support.

  • Summary: I've always liked the lenses on Canon cameras and this one didn't disappoint. Images were sharp and the camera took good photos even in low light.
