With the summer holiday season fast approaching, Richard Sibley tests Canon’s latest travel compact camera that features a 20x optical zoom, full HD movies and GPS. Read our Canon PowerShot SX260 HS review...
Despite fierce competition, the Canon PowerShot SX260 HS is one of the best travel zoom cameras on the market. Although the resolution may not quite match either the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 or the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V, those thinking of purchasing the camera shouldn’t be put off. The image quality is more than a match for both these higher resolution models.
The evaluative metering system and range of scene modes make it easy for point-and-shoot photographers to get great images, while the more advanced user will enjoy the range of manual exposure modes. Add the HD video capture and GPS tagging, and the Canon PowerShot SX260 HS becomes an ideal travel companion.
