About this product

Product Information

  • The Canon PowerShot SX60 HS sports one of the longest zoom ranges in any digital camera with a 65x optical zoom that covers the 35mm equivalent of 21-1365mm. Not surprisingly, it has Intelligent Optical Image Stabilizer that chooses from 8 different IS modes. It is built around a 16MP CMOS sensor with a Digic 6 Image Processor, which Canon says yields excellent low-light image quality. The SX60 also captures full 1080/60p HD video in MP4 format; the lens zooms silently and can focus while shooting video footage, and the camera disposes of an external mic jack. Autofocus is said to be greatly improved via High Speed AF, and the camera offers 6.4fps burst rate with no buffer delay. Zoom Framing Assist tracks and captures moving subjects while using the longer telephoto lengths. The camera zooms out so you can find a moving subject, then zooms in quickly to capture it up close. If you’ve ever tried following a moving subject with a long focal length lens, you know this is a great feature. The Canon SX60 has built-in Wi-Fi for iOS and Android devices and NFC wireless connectivity for Android devices only. It has a 3-inch, 922k dot LCD monitor as well as a 922k dot resolution eye-level viewfinder.

Great lil camera 65X zoom "WOW"

I upgraded from my Kodak "Z 1012-IS" digital to this cannon sx60 and I am very impressed with it. It does everything I want it to plus it has RAW. The distance for the zoom is awesome 65X WOW. I think I seem my relatives on the planet Mars LOL. The stabilizer is good also. The only thing to me this doesn’t have is is a touch screen which is ok for my needs. The video is great on it also . If ya need some info go to you tube type in "cannon sx60 review" and see everything for yourself. If you don’t want to miss a picture and have to change lenses often this will work for you. Great price at $370 but of course you need to buy the accessories to make it a complete camera . I suggest 2 things. when you purchase this camera or other cameras. 1- make sure you see in the listening there is a manufacture warranty because I only had a 14 warranty and if anything goes wrong with it now I have to pay for it to get fixed . 2- I’d check out a package deal if you can afford it that the camera and accessories comes all together. Ya might save a few $$. I only purchased the camera /charger/and 1 battery and will pay more for accessories . Most important tho is the warranty and some auctions don’t have a 1 year warranty. Best of luck and happy shooting Read full review

Mediocre camera

1.) When compared to my Sony DCS-400V (50x zoom) the Sony Leica lens are like comparing Swarovski crystal to glass. The view using the Sony viewfinder is crisp and clear, and the Canon has a slight dullness. 2.) The viewfinder in the Sony is larger and bright, and I prefer it for all photos. Canon states that their viewfinder is only good for bright situations; and even then it’s smaller and difficult to see your subject. 3.) I read in online reviews that a plus for the Canon is that it is better in low light conditions, but I find it’s not much different than the Sony; which doesn’t perform well in low lighting. 4.)The Sony is well balanced and fairly easy to hold steady even in full zoom, and the slightly longer zoom Canon is almost impossible to hold steady on a bird or small object at, or near, full zoom. 5.) The Sony is quick to take a shot and easy to focus, and the Canon delays once focused, and is sometimes difficult to focus. 6.) When tracking a bird in flight, the Canon is nearly impossible to hold still and follow it’s flight. It’s also nearly impossible to see distant birds in flight, and zoom in on it. With the Sony I can easily see distant birds in the sky with the viewfinder, zoom in, and follow it’s movements. 7.) On full zoom with the Sony, my photos were better than the Canon on closer shots. If I hadn’t used the Sony, I might consider the Canon an ok camera, but the Canon doesn’t seem as nice as even my earlier Sonys. I don’t recommend the Canon, but unfortunately I’m stuck with it.

Does everything it’s designed to do!

Having owned it’s predecessor the SX50, and several DSLRS, this camera is a great improvement on the SX50. It’s easy to use and gives excellent image quality, though still falls short of dslr quality. But when you factor in the reach and ease of use it’s a no brainer. I usually shoot in one of the PASM modes on my dslrs , but this camera gives excellent results in auto mode! And I was also surprised by it’s low light image quality. Highly recommended!

A Bridge Camera

There are some excellent, simple, pocket-size cameras around This is NOT one. It is not close to being pocket-sized and is hefty. If you’re looking for a full option, highly technical camera, this is NOT that one, either. It’s what is called a "bridge camera," somewhere between the simplicity of an easy point and shoot and the complexity of a multiple lens, SLR camera. It is challenging to someone like me, not a camera geek, whose prior camera was about 20 models old, a PowerShot S1 IS. The SX60, compared to the S1 IS, which is the earliest model in this particular Canon line, is much more complex and requires a steeper learning curve–IF you want to master all the camera can do for your picture taking. The camera is still very new to me, and I’ve not had a lot of experience shooti ng in the various modes. Especially, I’ve not done much on the fully "Auto" mode. From what I see, the pictures are, as you’d think, a significant leap forward in detail and all else. I’ll suspend judgement on the automatic aspect until my wife (who uses the camera that way) compares her pictures now to the ones she took with the early PowerShot. My fully manual and fully adjusted function pictures are, in my opinion, excellent. I can take better pictures in more lighting conditions. I get much, much better detail. So I’m a happy camper. It’s just too early to give a definitive opinion. I think the major drawback, for me, is the amount of function that has to do with wifi connectivity and keeping up with the latest computer technology. While I’m somewhat into that, the reason I get a camera is to take pictures. My ideal would be this same camera minus a bunch of bells and whistles that have little to do with picture taking. They add to the complexity without adding to the picture taking. Read full review

Easy to take along and easy to use.

This camera is light weight and easy to use. It came with all the excessories I need. It has a very nice zoom and takes great pictures. I wanted a camera that I could pack and take with on trips and also take on nature hikes to take quality pictures. This is the camera for me. I love it.

Samsung WB2200F Review

Images, and the devices that capture them, are my focus. I’ve covered cameras at PCMag for the past 10 years, which has given me a front row seat for the DSLR to mirrorless transition, the smartphone camera revolution, and the mainstream adoption of drones for aerial imaging. You can find me on Instagram @jamespfisher.

Samsung WB2200F

The Bottom Line

The Samsung WB2200F’s 60x lens can capture virtually any scene, but it suffers from image noise and slow autofocus.

PCMag editors select and review products independently. If you buy through affiliate links, we may earn commissions, which help support our testing.

At a glance, the Samsung WB2200F ($449.99) looks like a scale model of a pro D-SLR like the Canon EOS-1D X . But in reality it’s a bridge-style superzoom that incorporates a vertical shooting grip and controls into its design. Its lens covers a 60x range, but doesn’t reach further than competing 50x models; instead, it covers a wider angle to achieve a longer zoom ratio. As you’d expect from a Samsung camera, Wi-Fi is built in for quick image sharing. It’s not without its flaws; images are on the soft side and noise is an issue. If you can live with a shorter zoom range, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 ( at Amazon) (Opens in a new window) is a better choice , while the Fujifilm FinePix S1 ( at Amazon) (Opens in a new window) is superior if you need an extreme telephoto reach.

Design and Features
The WB2200F ($674.95 at Amazon) (Opens in a new window) is big, but it’s not as heavy as you’d expect from its size. It measures 4.8 by 4.7 by 4.1 inches (HWD) and weighs 1.3 pounds. Despite its large size, there’s no hot shoe, so you’ll have to live with the built-in flash. Other bridge cameras, like our Editors’ Choice, the premium-priced Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 ( at Amazon) (Opens in a new window) , include an expansion shoe. The RX10 is smaller at 3.5 by 5.1 by 4.1 inches, but magnesium construction and a larger lens combine to give it a 1.8-pound weight. The Sony has a larger (1-inch) image sensor, but its lens only covers a 24-200mm range at a fixed f/2.8 aperture. The WB2200F utilizes the same 1/2.3-inch sensor size found in most compact cameras, which makes it possible to cover a 20-1,200mm range, albeit at an aperture that starts at f/2.8 and narrows to f/5.9 by the time you’ve zoomed all the way in

Olympus Stylus SP-100

There’s plenty of room on the body for physical controls, and Samsung has taken advantage of it. The top plate houses the mode dial, a control wheel, the shutter release and zoom rocker, the power button, and the Direct Link Wi-Fi button. The shutter release and zoom rocker, and the control wheel are mirrored on the vertical shooting grip so you can more comfortably control the camera when holding it in portrait mode; there’s a locking switch to disable these secondary controls if desired.

You’ll find an EVF toggle switch on the rear (there’s no eye sensor to facilitate automatic switching between the rear LCD and EVF), as well as buttons to start video recording, access the menu, playback and delete images, and launch the Fn overlay display. It gives you quick control over the shutter speed, aperture, EV compensation, ISO, white balance, metering pattern, autofocus mode, focus point, face detection settings, flash output, image stabilization settings, and image size and compression settings.

A group of four controls surrounds the OK button; they adjust the flash output, macro focusing mode, self-timer and drive mode, and the amount of information displayed on the rear LCD. There are two EV compensation buttons, one at the top for use in landscape orientation and one at the bottom for portrait.

Samsung includes an iFn control on the lens barrel; it’s similar in function to the control used on lenses for its NX mirrorless system. Its standard function gives you direct control over aperture, exposure compensation, ISO, and white balance. It can be set to an alternate mode, called iFn Plus; it changes the function of certain controls when pressed. The shutter button, zoom rocker, and exposure compensation button all have customizable secondary functions when used in conjunction with the iFn Plus system. One thing that is missing is a framing assist; other long zoom cameras like the Fuji FinePix S1 offer this control, which widens the field of view with one touch, allows you to reacquire your subject, and then returns the lens to its previous zoomed in position. It’s a useful function when tracking subjects at telephoto distances, and is sadly missing here.

The rear display is 3 inches in size and features a 460k-dot resolution. It’s a fixed panel without support for touch input, and doesn’t look as sharp to my eye as the 921k-dot vari-angle display that Nikon includes on the Coolpix P600 ($200.98 at Amazon) (Opens in a new window) . There’s also an EVF; it’s a little small, but its 201k-dot resolution provides adequate sharpness. It’s not on the same level as the larger 921k-dot EVF that Fuji puts in the FinePix S1, but it does get the job done.

As you’d expect from Samsung, Wi-Fi is built in. It works with the free Samsung Remote Camera app, and can connect via Wi-Fi or NFC. You can transfer images from the WB2200F directly to your phone (the camera broadcasts its on network), or use your handheld iOS or Android device as a remote control. There are some limitations; you can adjust the lens, control the flash output, set the self-timer, and fire the shutter, but you can’t choose a focus point or adjust shooting controls, and when you’re shooting in remote mode the file size is limited to 10 megapixels. If you connect to a home Wi-Fi network it’s possible to send images and videos directly from the camera to your Facebook, Picasa, YouTube, or Dropbox account. Instagram and Twitter aren’t built into the camera, so you’ll need to first transfer images to your phone in order to post to those popular networks.

Performance and Conclusions

Performance and Conclusions
The WB2200F is a little slow to start and shoot, requiring about 2.2 seconds to do so. More troublesome is its focus speed; at its widest angle it requires 0.6-second to confirm focus and fire off a shot, and that slows to 1.9 seconds at its telephoto extreme. In field tests, the focus system occasionally failed to lock on to a static target, and required several attempts before it could manage an in-focus shot. Burst shooting is quick, at 6.9fps, but it stops after 7 shots and requires about 7.3 seconds for all of those images to be stored on a memory card. The Fuji FinePix S1 is a lot faster all around; it starts in 1.4 seconds, locks focus in 0.1-second at the wide end and 0.7-second at its longest focal length, and can capture a burst of 8 shots at 7.8fps.

I used Imatest (Opens in a new window) to check the sharpness of images captured by the WB2200F. A center-weighted average score of 1,800 lines per picture height is required for an image to be deemed sharp, but the WB2200F falls short of that mark. It scored 1,774 lines on the test, which is quite close; the center third of the frame shows a lot of detail (2,036 lines), but the middle third is on the soft side (1,608 lines) and the outer third drops all the way to 1,247 lines. Some softness at the edges is normal for a compact camera, but the softness through the middle third is a problem. In high contrast scenes, such as branches or foliage against the sky, the WB2200F is prone to showing purple color fringing. Competing models like the Olympus Stylus SP-100 capture more detail throughout the frame; it scores 2,604 lines on the same test.

Imatest also checks images for noise, which can add unwanted grain and detract from detail as the sensitivity to light (measured in ISO) is increased. The WB2200F offers middling performance here, keeping noise under 1.5 percent through ISO 400. I took a close look at photos from our ISO test sequence on a calibrated NEC MultiSync PA271W($999.00 at Amazon) (Opens in a new window) display; fine lines that are distinct at ISO 100 have already started to run together at ISO 400, and at ISO 800 they have melded into a ball of mush. The Fuji SL1000 fares better; it also keeps noise under 1.5 percent through ISO 400, but images show more detail at ISO 800 and it offers the Raw shooting capability that the WB2200F lacks.

Video is recorded in MP4 format at up to 1080p30 quality. The sharpness and colors are on par with other cameras of this type, but there are some issues; rolling shutter, which causes the bottom of the frame to appear to advance before the top, is evident, and the sound of the lens slowly refocusing as the scene changes is audible. By default, the sound cuts out completely while you’re adjusting the zoom, which can be disconcerting; you can disable the Zoom Mute function via the menu. There’s a micro HDMI port to connect to an HDTV, and a micro USB port for computer connectivity and charging. Samsung doesn’t include an external battery charger, so you’ll need to plug the WB2200F into the wall using the included AC adapter to recharge its battery in-camera. Standard SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards are supported.

The Samsung WB220F has a lens that covers an incredible zoom range, which can capture scenes at ultra-wide to extreme telephoto angles. Its control layout is solid, and while the integrated vertical shooting grip adds bulk, it makes capturing vertical shots at long focal lengths a bit more practical, especially when utilizing the EVF. Wi-Fi is built in for quick sharing, and limited remote control is possible via your smartphone. But it’s not all good news; the camera is, at times, painfully slow to focus, its lens falls a bit shy of our sharpness requirements, and when the ISO is pushed beyond 400, images turns to mush. Given its asking price, we have a tough time recommending the WB2200F for purchase.

The Fujifilm FinePix S1 is available for $50 more and, while its 50x lens doesn’t cover as wide of an angle and exhibits some color fringing, it offers a lot more for your money, and its focus performance is much faster. If you don’t need such a long zoom, the Panasonic FZ200 is another excellent alternative; even with a lens that’s "only" 24x, it can zoom to 600mm and maintains an f/2.8 aperture throughout its range. The absolute best bridge camera we’ve tested, our Editors’ Choice Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10, has a much shorter zoom ratio, but its image sensor and f/2.8 Zeiss lens trounce the competition in image quality. But you’ll have to lay down serious money to get it, as the RX10 is priced at $1,300.
