My Canon PowerShot SX260 HS Review
It had been several days since i recivied Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, as the replacement of Canon PowerShot SX230 HS, I find it is more convenient than the previous, With SX230 HS, I can’t place my left finger easily, But there is no problem.
Not only the button layout but the metal body and rubber grip, The two things just make the pocket camera solid.
The main feature of the SX260 HS is it is easy to use, It will auto select it’s own 58 predefined shooting situations for your scene and the GPS system upgrade the SX260 from a travel-zoom camera to a seeker camera.
The image is clear, If you like to take photos in the evening, you will be impressed with the pictures’ quality, Of course i find the colour desaturation above ISO 800.
SX260 HS VS DSC-HX9V
Compared with Sony DSC-HX9V, I find the video quality of PowerShot SX260 is a little worse than DSC-HX9V, The problem is stereo sound in SX260 is not as well as the it’s competitors’.

“Despite looking outwardly similar to its predecessor, the PowerShot SX260 HS represents a big step forward for Canon’s travel-zoom cameras and is a real challenger to Panasonic’s TZ30 model. Anyone looking for a pocket camera that can shoot high quality stills and video both near and far should seriously consider the exciting new Canon PowerShot SX260 HS.” – photographyblog
“I would be amazed if this camera is not the Point and Shoot Camera of the Year. Cannon has always led the way in this market. This camera leaves all of the others in the dust. I am sure when JG and cnet got a hold of this one they were amazed as well.” – CNET
If you are a traveler,a super zoom buyer or a new tech enthusiast, I think the Canon PowerShot SX260 HS is a best choice for you.
