Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Black 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera, Model SX600HSBK

Powerful Zoom to Go
The PowerShot SX600 HS camera takes you up on the stage, down on the field or anywhere a great shot is happening! That's because tucked into its super-slim 1.02-inch profile is an astonishing feat of engineering: a high-powered 18x Optical Zoom. With a zoom this big in a camera this small, you'll be ready to capture all the moments that matter, whenever and wherever they happen. And built-in Wi-Fi® lets you share the fun with friends and family right away – transfer images and video directly to select social networking sites, mobile devices* and your computer. You can even use the camera for remote capture with your smartphone or tablet**, and simply touch to a compatible Android™ device*** using built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) for easy wireless connectivity. You'll also capture stunningly realistic 1080p Full HD video, and use Hybrid Auto to automatically create an exciting highlight reel of an entire day's fun from quick video clips taken before each still. Ideal for the busy photographer looking to travel light, the PowerShot SX600 HS is the camera to slip into your pocket.

Features:

  • 18x Optical Zoom (25-450mm) helps ensure outstanding optical performance and versatility
    The powerful 18x Optical Zoom range (35mm equivalent: 25–450mm) on the PowerShot SX600 HS is ideal for capturing memories of kids' achievements on the sporting field, recitals, plays and concerts – all those times when your access to the action is limited. From landscapes and wildlife to city scenes and more, this camera has you covered – all while fitting in your pocket. Zooming action is quick and precise, and genuine Canon optics help ensure brilliant clarity. Chromatic aberration is compensated across the entire range, and the lens's high optical resolving power works with the camera's high-resolution sensor and advanced image stabilization systems to produce clear, sharp, beautifully detailed images at any zoom length.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi makes sharing quick and easy
    The PowerShot SX600 HS camera is equipped with built-in Wi-Fi® technology for on-the-go convenience when you want to share your photos and videos with friends, family and the whole world. The camera can connect directly to both iOS® and Android™ devices*, and upload images via the free Canon CameraWindow app** without a computer. Easily post your images to social networking and media sites – Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube™, Flickr® and now Google Drive™ – through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# or save them to the online photo album to share anytime, anywhere. You can control the destination of your uploads to share with everyone or to selected groups, and even add comments. Sharing video is also easy with the PowerShot SX600 HS, which records video using the easy-to-share MP4 format. Enhanced Wi-Fi®makes posting in real time possible, so you can keep everyone up to date with photos and video even as events unfold. The built-in Wi-Fi® technology on the PowerShot SX600 HS also allows you to transfer images to other Wi-Fi® equipped PowerShot cameras or print your photos directly to a PictBridge (Wireless LAN) certified printer. One-touch connection to your mobile device or computer is made possible on the PowerShot SX600 HS with the camera's dedicated Mobile Device Connect Button. You can choose to transfer images to your smartphone or tablet for immediate sharing with the CameraWindow app**, or to your computer on the same network with Image Sync to make saving and organizing your images easier. When the camera finds a linked computer on the same wireless network, images are sent directly to it. Otherwise, images are temporarily stored on CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# then transferred once a connection is made, eliminating the need for cables.
  • Remote Shooting
    With the built-in Wi-Fi® on the PowerShot SX600 HS, you can use your smartphone or tablet* to remotely control the camera. Simply connect wirelessly to your device and access the free Canon CameraWindow app**. Your device will show a live image of the camera's capture – perfect for a commemorative group photo, wildlife shots and all kinds of situations. The camera's versatile 18x Optical Zoom, flash, self-timer and shutter are all under your control, with images being saved to your camera as usual.
  • Built-in NFC (Near Field Communitication) for easier Wi-Fi connectivity
    The PowerShot SX600 HS camera supports NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, eliminating the need to find and open the Canon CameraWindow app* on your mobile device. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android device**, and the CameraWindow app will launch automatically for quick, easy sharing of your images. Built-in NFC technology also makes it simpler to install the app. If the app hasn't been installed yet, once you touch the devices together for the first time, the download screen will display automatically. 
  • Creative Shot mode
    In addition to the versatile power of its amazing 18x Optical Zoom, the PowerShot SX600 HS also turns out impressive artistic photos with Creative Shot mode. Rather than randomly applying filters, Creative Shot mode takes advantage of advanced Canon technologies to analyze the individual scene, subject and exposure to apply any of 46 filter options. In addition to the original shot, the camera automatically produces and saves five additional variations of the composition. Filter choices are grouped into Retro, Monochrome, Special and Natural categories to make exploring the world of artistic photography fun and easy, or simply select Auto to access the full range of effects. With Creative Shot mode, the result is stunning artistic photos that are perfect for sharing.
  • 16.0 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor
    The PowerShot SX600 HS camera's 16.0 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor is the highest resolution CMOS sensor used in any PowerShot camera. The difference this makes in your everyday photography is remarkable. The large sensor takes in more light, so images are clear and beautifully detailed. High ISO shots are particularly impressive, with less noise and expanded dynamic range. And the 16.0 Megapixel resolution gives you the flexibility to be more creative with your shots: crop and enlarge any part of an image – you can be confident that the detail and resolution you need are there.
  • DIGIC 4+ Image Processor
    The new Canon DIGIC 4+ Image Processor powers the PowerShot SX600 HS camera's advanced functions and capabilities, including Hybrid Auto, Creative Shot, and Full HD video shooting at 30p in the easy-to-share MP4 format. Its accelerated processing speed creates fast, responsive performance, for a shooting experience that's easy and natural. The DIGIC 4+ Image Processor also enhances image quality in several ways. Processing of high ISO shots has been shortened by 60% compared to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. This significantly reduces noise for brilliant color, smooth gradations, and beautiful detail even in low light. The processor also allows for the integration of electronic Dynamic IS. This advanced system compensates for multiple motion types, effectively preventing angular blur, shift blur, and blur caused by parallel movement and tilt shift. The result is images that are reliably sharp and clear at all lengths of the camera's powerful zoom. The processor's highly efficient design also extends battery life.
  • Canon HS SYSTEM helps provide excellent low-light performance
    The slim, compact PowerShot SX600 HS gives you the power to capture beautifully detailed, naturally lit images even in low light – reducing the need for flash and the occasionally unwelcome effects it produces. That's because the camera's 16.0 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor works with the camera's new DIGIC 4+ Image Processor to create the Canon HS SYSTEM, specifically engineered for spectacular low-light performance. With the Canon HS SYSTEM, you'll experience excellent tracking performance even in low light, and achieve gorgeous still image quality at ISO speeds up to ISO 3200; beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas.
  • Capture Stunning 1080p Full HD video with a dedicated movie button
    The PowerShot SX600 HS not only preserves your special video memories with spectacular realism, but does it in a format that makes them easy to share. You can simply press the dedicated movie button to start and stop video recording, so you're always ready to capture the moment as it happens. The camera records in stunningly realistic 1080p Full HD, so even when played back on a big-screen HDTV, your videos are crystal clear, with smooth action and beautifully natural color. Thanks to the advanced DIGIC 4+ Image Processor, video can be captured at 30 frames per second in MP4 format. MP4 videos are perfectly sized for quick online sharing – whether you're showing relatives what the kids are up to or posting status updates on social networking sites.
  • Mobile Device Connect Button
    It's now easier than ever to connect your PowerShot SX600 HS camera to an iOS® or Android™ device* using the Mobile Device Connect Button. The button allows you to choose to transfer images to your smartphone or tablet for immediate sharing with the CameraWindow app**, or to your computer on the same network with Image Sync to make saving and organizing your images easier. Once your device is registered on the camera, simply press the Mobile Device Connect button for easy connection. By connecting to a smartphone with the CameraWindow app using the Mobile Device Connect Button, you can browse and share images while still leaving the camera inside a bag. It is also possible to turn off the PowerShot SX600 HS quickly and easily, directly from a smartphone. Once your camera is linked to your computer on the same wireless network, you can automatically transfer images to it, for easy saving and organizing of your photos. The Mobile Device Connect Button is great for quick and easy sharing from a fun day out with friends and family.
  • Hybrid Auto
    The PowerShot SX600 HS camera features Hybrid Auto, which records up to four seconds of video every time you shoot a still image, then automatically joins the clips and pictures* into a video that captures the essence of special days: vacations, important occasions, or any time you're shooting many shots in a day. With Hybrid Auto, this "highlight reel" is stunningly beautiful. Hybrid Auto automatically recognizes the scene and optimizes camera settings to capture the highest possible image quality. The resulting 720p HD video is properly exposed, crisp and steady.
  • Smart AUTO
    Sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button, Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. On the PowerShot SX600 HS, detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture, whether you're shooting stills or video. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away.
  • Intelligent IS
    It's easy to capture clear, steady images with the PowerShot SX600 HS, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because the camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation – allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and active Tripod IS modes. New icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you?re shooting still images or video.
  • ECO Mode
    The PowerShot SX600 HS features ECO Mode, which provides more shots per single charge through LCD monitor and camera power management. ECO Mode can be activated for easy power preservation when an outlet is unavailable or the moment is too exciting to put the camera down. The mode quickly wakes the camera from sleep when a button is pressed. With ECO Mode activated to conserve power, you can even stay connected for longer with the built-in Wi-Fi® featured on the camera. When the fun with family and friends runs late into the night, you can be assured your camera can keep up.
  • Easily Print Your Favorite Moments
    It's quick and easy to make beautiful prints from your PowerShot camera. With the built-in Wi-Fi® on your PowerShot camera, it's easy to send your images to a PictBridge (Wireless LAN) compatible printer. Or use the Direct Print system; simply connect your PowerShot SX600 HS camera to a Canon PIXMA or SELPHY photo printer with a USB cable and press the button to print. Easily turn every favorite moment into an amazing photo.

I purchased this camera 2 days ago after having my 2-year-old Canon stolen. This is an updated version of that camera. Rating is thus based on my iniitial experiencel. In answer to some of the common complaints I've just read, and using Windows computers: Documentation: On the Canon website, you can get and download a very complete "Camera User Guide," a 163-page pdf file. It is pretty well written and so far has answers to most of my questions. It is designed to be used interactively from a laptop or PC, with hotlinks from its Tables of Contents, Index and chapter tabs, and hotlinks to internal page cross-references, with a rudimentary "go-back' feature. That's all good. But I like to work from a printed document for times when my laptop isn't handy, and that was not easy. I wanted to print most pages black & white, color only where needed, front and back, with a binding edge. The pdf file is password protected, so I could not edit the file directly. I wound up using screen shots of alternate pages and Adobe Photoshop to shift them for printing, a very tedious process. So far I am only to page 50. For downloading pictures, with my old Canon I tried using the provided software, but finally went back to the simple alternative - Take the memory card out of the camera and insert it in the card slot available on many laptops or desktops. If your computer has no card reader, you can buy one with a USB connection at most computer stores. Once the card is inserted, use Windows Explorer to quickly copy (drag & drop groups of files) from your card to a Picture folder on your computer, You can then put the card back into the camera and edit the copies of the pictures on your computer. Do NOT try to edit the pictures directly on the card - that may make the card unusable in the camera. When the card fills up and you have all your pictures backed up on your computer, you can use Windows Explorer to erase the older pictures from the card while it is attached to the computer. Leave a few of the latest ones to preserve the numbering. This all saves battery life on the camera. In the User Guide document, I did not find how to start picture numbering from an arbitrary number (like just beyond the number of my last picture from the old camera). One way that worked was to take a couple of pictures using the new camera on a new card, Then with the card in the computer, use Windows Explorer to rename those picture files using the sequence numbers you want. Subsequent pictures seem to follow that new sequence, as desired...

I love the new Powershot SX 600 for taking pictures, but I am completely aggravated by the complicated, nearly impossible and confusing instructions and process for uploading my photos to my computer. Whatever happened to the KISS formula? With my previous Canon (which I lost) I received a CD which contained the software, installed it, and never had a problem. I would never recommend this camera to the average point and shoot photographer or casual photo taker.

Best P&S ever!

By 

from Chicago, Il

Comments about Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Black Digital Camera:

I have gone through several point and shoots over the last 8 years and this one optically is one the best I have had to date. Overall picture taking is Very Good to Excellent. Would I consider getting another one? Yes I would consider getting a second one as a backup. The auto-focus is also very good for this type of camera. I like the feel of the camera, and really like using the camera compared to the other P&S.

Honestly this is a great camera.

By 

from Pearl Harbor, Hawaii

Comments about Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Black Digital Camera:

I love taking pictures and for the price and extras like Wi-fi to allow remote shooting as well as much more. Another well done job by Canon. I miss my TX-1 but this makes up for it with being able to allow remote shooting and much more. The quality of the pictures are awesome and I love taking advantage of the Hawaii's beautiful scenery to capture great pictures and great distance that your smart phone can't provide and costs more than this camera. The choice is yours and I made a good one. Keep up the good work Canon.

Horrid Software

By 

from Minnesota

Comments about Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Black Digital Camera:

I will be courteous and not swear. I would love to us old time Navy Language to tell everyone what I think of their software but I will be polite. First, camera hooked up after some work to my desk top and I was able to transfer pictures, albeit slow as molases but it did work.] Then my hard drive crashed and had it replaced and had to re register, reload the software and for the life of me I cannot under any circumstance get the camera to connect via wifi using any method they offered. Then the camera breaks and I send it in and they replace it. Great. Now after an hour and a half this camera will not connect and I had to take the battery out to stop it from trying because none, nada zip of any button on the camera worked. It froze in trying. I would absolutely NOT BUY this or any canon product. I have there printer it works great but no thanks to thier software or directions, I figured it out myself.

Love it!

By 

from Milwaukee, WI

Comments about Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Black Digital Camera:

I have had a series of Canon cameras, and have never been disappointed. I had a similar but larger Powershot,but unfortunately scratched the lens. This new camera is smaller, lighter, but has a better zoom and takes pictures that are just as terrific! I recommend getting a second battery, so that when yours goes out while you are at a parade, etc., you have it handy. The low battery light does not give you a lot of advance warning. A monopod or tripod is also useful when using the zoom feature, although I have used railings or walls for stability with success.

Great Little Camera

Comments about Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Black Digital Camera:

We have used Cannon cameras for years. We were planning a trip to Florida and wanted a camera we could stick in our pocket while walking on the beach. We have been thrilled with the pictures!

Canon Software

from Milwaukee, WI

Comments about Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Black Digital Camera:

I am not sure I will buy a Canon camera again. The software to link ot my computer and the iMAGE GATEWAY software is so poorly written it is not practical to use. I have spent hours trying to share an album.
