Canon SX600 HS Review -- First Impressions

by Dave Pardue
Preview posted: 01/06/2014

The popular SX line from Canon welcomes a new family member with the announcement of the Canon SX600 HS, a sleek compact that sports 18x optical zoom range (25-450mm eq.) and a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor with a DIGIC 4+ processor. Aimed at shooters looking to step up from the limitations of their smartphones and experience good zoom range and better low light performance, the SX600 HS also brings several firsts to this storied line of cameras.

For starters, not only does the SX600 HS come Wi-Fi enabled, but also now includes Near Field Communication (NFC) as well, allowing users to press a button on the camera, tap their NFC-enabled Android device and transfer images with relative ease. Also new to the SX line is Creative Shot mode, originally introduced on the Canon N, which includes 4 categories encompassing 46 filters total and allowing for a plethora of creative variations, while still preserving the original image.

Hybrid AUTO is also onboard, which takes still images and short video clips and combines them into a video highlight reel of a vacation or a shooting outing… no video editing software or skills required. In addition, the camera can be controlled remotely via Canon's free software using an iOS or Android device, allowing for added shooting convenience for certain situations. The SX600 HS also sports a dedicated movie record button and shoots up to 1080p Full HD video.

The PowerShot SX600 HS is expected towards the end of February 2014 at an estimated retail price of US$249.99, and will be offered in red, white or black.
