Canon Powershot SX60 HS To Be Released Soon (and some specs)

From a new source (thanks) comes the rumor that Canon will soon release the successor of the popular Powershot SX50 HS IS (price & specs), the Canon Powershot SX60 HS IS. The announcement is expected before summer 2014, possibly in the next two months .

There are some new tidbits on the specification front. The Canon Powershot SX60 HS is said to have a 15MP sensor, and to get faster on the wide end. While the SX50 has a maximum aperture of f/3.4, the Sx60 HS is rumored to have f/2.8. The SX60 HS is also said to be wider, 20-1200 in 35mm equivalent instead of the current 24-1200. That would be a 60x zoom, and it fits with the naming scheme: the SX50 had a 50x zoom, so it sounds plausible the SX60 might have a 60x zoom. Finally, there should be improvements for the auto-focus (which is already pretty quick on the SX50).

That’s all I have for the time being. Stay tuned for more.
