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.

Next Canon Announcement To Come Soon: Canon Powershot SX60 HS IS

Powershot SX60 HS IS

Canon Powershot SX50 HS IS

I just got an email from a known source saying; stay ready for the next announcement it will be the Powershot SX60 HS IS.

Unfortunately there were no specs sent in by the source, and I doubt that the specs pointing out a 60x zoom I got the last time are accurate. Other rumors suggest a 100x zoom, and there is a patent leading in this direction. A zoom beyond 60x seems plausible to me. I am still sure the Powershot SX60 HS IS will be announced before summer 2014.

Just a small rumor saying the Powershot SX60 HS IS will be announced soon. Nothing more. For the time being.

Canon Powershot SX60 HS IS Rumored Again (100x zoom, announcement soon)

Canon Rumors received a new rumor about the upcoming Canon Powershot SX60 HS IS, the successor of the popular Powershot SX50 HS IS (price & specs).

The rumor states that the Powershot SX60 will have a 100x zoom (and not a 60x zoom as I was told from one of my sources), and that the camera could be announced soon, possibly before summer. This candidate announcement date was told to me too. The 100x zoom is said to cover  a whooping 20-2000mm range. In the past a Canon patent for a 100x zoom was spotted. Never the less, I think the rumor about a 100x zoom is non-sense.

Canon Powershot SX60 HS HS Due In Summer 2014?

A somewhat vague rumor surfaced on the web stating that the successor of the Powershot SX50 HS may be announced sometime in spring and be available for shipping in the summer 2014. The camera will most probably be named SX60 HS. No specs or other information. Speculation goes to the point that the SX60 HS could feature a 100x zoom. A pertinent patent appeared some time ago, though I do not think the SX60 HS will have such a crazy zoom range.

The Powershot SX50 HS is a popular bridge camera, and indeed it is due for replacement.
