Canon Powershot SX60 HS Review (Camera Labs)

Camera Labs posted their exhaustive review of the Canon Powershot SX60 HS. From the verdict:

The PowerShot SX60 HS is the latest in a long line of very popular and successful DSLR-styled super-zooms from Canon – and that success isn’t going to stop anytime soon. After a two year wait, Canon has surpassed expectations (unless you were taken in by the nonsense 100x rumours) with a 65x zoom range that beats all comers, for now at least.

[…] the [Powershot SX60 HS] makes improvements in all the key areas with a better viewfinder and screen, built-in Wifi, better video, much improved continuous shooting and a new front dial. The new Seek assist auto mode which helps you keep track of moving subjects when zoomed in is an innovation of the sort that Canon used to magic out of the hat frequently, but has been absent in its compact releases lately. It’s good to see a return to this kind of form.
