Canon Powershot SX260 HS

The Canon Powershot SX260 HS packs a wide range of features into a relatively small body size. One of the big attractions is the 20x zoom lens. This length of lens gives you enough flexibility to capture a wide range of typical photo opportunities.

Although the Powershot SX260 HS can be used as a simple point and shoot camera it also has a lot of features that are likely to appeal to the more serious photographer. This can make it a good choice for a family where there is a range of different photographic abilities.

Key features include 12 megapixels, a 3 inch LCD screen and a macro mode that can focus from 5cm away from your subject. More advanced features include manual exposure controls (Fully Manual, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority) and GPS tracking.

Canon have equipped the Powershot SX260 HS with a number of different features for shooting movies. It is capable of recording High Definition movie clips with stereo sound. You also have the option of recording movies to be played back in slow motion. Image stabilisation can be applied to both movie recordings and still images to help keep your still photos sharp and your videos steady. This camera can also record movies in iFrame format.
